The weather for the inaugural nighttime 200-miler was cool and dry--perfect for racing. The equipment is still 600cc sportbikes; a good rider could buy a stock streetbike, qualify for the race and finish mid-pack. Some of the stuff I thought was stupid, like the safety car, actually made the racing more interesting by closing up the field. Luck played a large part this time due to the cautions, but I can see where the pit crews will be rock stars in the future. Anyway Bostrom was fastest all night long and won the race, so everything worked out in the end.
