INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 5) - GEICO Suzuki rider Karen Stoffer is tentatively set in the No. 6 position for the 58th annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals presented by Auto-Plus at Lucas Oil Raceway but that could change this weekend.

"I think some things are going to change up," Stoffer said. "We hope that we can do that. We're not testing. I know some teams are testing, but we don't have a heck of a lot to test. We've got good motors, and we are the fastest Suzuki. We feel like we can continue to perform that way this weekend.

"We'll just unload everything and pretend like it's a brand-new race."

While Stoffer had to return home after rain washed out eliminations Monday, the GEICO hauler remained at Lucas Oil Raceway.

"We had to fly home in between and do some things so it's going to be a little bit more hectic for us," Stoffer said. "But it's going to be interesting. We'll have two hits on Saturday to get it dialed in and ready for the race on Sunday."

Weather conditions should be different this weekend for Pro Stock Motorcycle competitors, with only a slight chance for rain on Saturday and highs in the mid-70s both days. The class gets two qualifying passes on Saturday before the field is set for Sunday's eliminations.

"It's going to be a whole different weekend," Stoffer said. "We're going to have two hits. It's kind of like a do-over."

Stoffer went on to extend special thanks to all of the 2012 sponsors and supporters.
