Speedworld has those inserts available seperately. Just mount a set of 32R until the official premounts come out.

Thanks OD, I don't know about the word dominating but the Photon's were really good on asphalt. I'm glad everything came together and we were able to pull of the wins. Thanks for all the help.

Kevin and I both ran Sorex 36's with the Hara V3 insert on the Solaris wheel. The Sorex's were super fast....

For those interested, here are the results:

Thanks Billy and Crew for having such a great place for people to go race at!!

We had a great time up there and I always look forward to getting back up there!

Definately wish it was only a couple hour drive because it would be well worth it!

I'll echo the Jason's sentiments: Locals, you have a great facility; don't take it or Billy for granted!!

See you guys in a few weeks!!
