AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Series Gears up for GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing Round 4 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course
The big names at the top of the order after three races are sitting relatively pretty. Steve Rapp (No. 5 Suburban Harley-Davison) has been the story at the previous two rounds as the versatile one-time DAYTONA 200 winner comes into Ohio following consecutive runaway victories. Rapp's heroics have allowed him to surge to within a single marker of the title lead despite earning zero points at the season opener. Reigning class champion Michael Barnes (No. 1 Spyke's Harley-Davidson) currently retains that slim advantage thanks to his consistently strong performances this season; while Barnes is still seeking his first victory since brandishing the #1 plate on the front of his XR1000, the resilient pilot has been picking up steam as the season's progressed. He has decades of Mid-Ohio experience, which he put to good use to win pole at the venue last season, and will be seeking to snap Rapp's recent run of dominance this weekend.
