That's why Danilo Petrucci is doing the rain dance
Petrucci will play the AMA title in Alabama on Sunday. It will not be easy to beat the very strong Gagne with Yamaha: the two riders start practically on a par, the points at stake are 50, Danilo plays it and trusts in the rain, where he is superior to all. And the weather forecasts are uncertain ...

And'on the track at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama, which Danilo Petrucci will play the MotoAmerica SBK 2022 title this weekend. It will not be easy, however, because the Terni player has to recover 4 points on what turned out to be a tough and fast competitor, Gagne with Yamaha.
There are fifty points at stake, it can be done: it must be remembered that Danilo's 2022 victories were five against eleven by rival Jake Gagne, of the Attack Yamaha team; but the splendid recent success in the rain of Race 2, in New Jersey, pointed out that in the wet the Italian has no competition. The weather forecast for Alabama is very uncertain… And then Petrux, this time, already knows the track.
It would really be a historic undertaking: no Italian has ever secured the AMA / MotoAmerica Superbike title and Ducati hasn't even won in the States for 28 years.
