Team Valvoline EMGO Suzuki’s Steve Rapp qualified his 2003 Suzuki GSX-R1000 4th-fastest for Sunday’s Formula Xtreme race at California Speedway in Fontana, California.

The new bike had never been on a racetrack before practice started on Thursday.

Rapp was 2nd fastest early in the session but ended qualifying with a fastest lap of 1:27.09 to fill out the front row.

His teammate, Chris Ulrich, is still feeling the effects of breaking a rib at Daytona three weeks ago and qualified 15th at 1:30.502 on his 2002 Suzuki GSX-R1000.

The race will be held Sunday afternoon.
