Nicki was in MotoGP by the time I ran SBK (I was already an old fart by then). I did race him in his pre Honda days at Putnum Park I think it was 1997? Maybe 1998? I beat him. He was only 15 or 16 then though I think (already been racing for 11-12yrs though).

I ran some AMA SBK stuff 2003-2005. It wasn't like I was hitting all the races, or even took it that seriously. Just ran the stuff that was fun and I knew the tracks real well. Mid Ohio, Road America, Road Atlanta, Barber. Running AMA SBK is just a way to spend a whole bunch of money and maybe get a top 15. I did mostly WERA/CCS stuff. At least there I could win some $$$ and maybe not be out of pocket for the entire weekend.

I rode pretty much everything at some point. Mostly GSXR1000's and Ducati's though.
