He won be 1.25 and 0.29s respectively. Hardly destroyed the whole field. Plus he had been racing MotoAmerica so it's not like he showed up off the couch.Because Mitch showed up last year having not raced a national all year and destroyed the whole field....in both races.
That being said I would still peg him to do the double this year. I think it will be a good race between him and Tomas. If Frank is healthy he will be the dark horse for sure, as he has had more pace than both of them all year imo.
