Shawn Russell National # 28

Shawn Russell gave the Kawi a good run at Pomona but unfortunately lost it in turn 4 in the Expert Semi.He low sided but the bike took a beating and he retired with a mechanical DNF. Look for this team to regain their winning ways in 2012.

Coach Werner gives one of his inspirational speeches on the pre-grid. Joe Hartrich looks more impressed with it than Shawn.
Russell had a high speed laydown in turn 4 that could have been a lot worse. Werner saw the wreck from the pits ,ran up to the corner, got the bike back to the Hot Box and then started a frantic rebuild session on the jammed back wheel.
The damage was too great despite mammoth effort from Werner, Springer and team. Russell offers encouragement as the time expires rapidly.
