"I'm just pumped," said Kiniry. "Houston was my best result this year and I feel like we're building consistently now. I rode smart, I got a good start, and I got the Yamaha out in front of the pack, right off the bat. Now, I'm really looking forward to New Orleans. I've raced there once or twice, and I'm comfortable down there. We're getting the ball rolling now and I know where I belong, and that's up front, and I think I'm showing that now."
