Schnitz Loses by .004

Ryan Schnitz was licking his wounds and looking forward to his next chance to race after losing by .004 of a second on a holeshot to Antron Brown in round 1 of Pro Stock Motorcycle eliminations at the U.S. Nationals.

"We had a really good bike, a good tune-up, and a great pass, but the driver was a little bit late leaving the line," said Schnitz. "This year I've got the best percentage of leaving first in eliminations of all the top 10 riders, and I'm the only one of the top 10 who hasn't redlit. So I really can't complain. Had it been any other round, it might not have mattered, The margin of victory was .004, or about a foot. It was a good race. It happens to the best drivers in the world, so I'm not gonna beat myself up too bad about it. I'm happy we qualified well here and got our consistency back, and I'm happy with our performance this weekend."

Ryan races next at the Toyo Tires NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway in Reading, Pennsylvania September 14-17.
