Shaun Palmer to ride Glen Helen opener?

Not sure how many of you out there know about this. Apparently Honda is supplying Palm with a factory CR 250 to race against the big boys at the Glen Helen opener on May 13th. Voss at Vegas and now this? Honda must be in a very generous mood lately.

He's supposedly been training at Ricky Carmichael's house in Tennessee with Ricky's trainer. The guy has guts, but I'm afraid that he's going to be rudely awakened. Yea, he qualified for a supercross back in 98, but this is the outdoors now. If you ask me, the outdoors separate the men from the boys. Palmer might want to try his luck at Arenacross. In my opinion, the big time of Glen Helen will be a humbling experience for the guy.
