Beaubier got up to speed fast on the American Racing Kalex.

Replacing the departing Joe Roberts in the American Racing Kalex outfit, Beaubier finished seventh overall, a mere 0.600 seconds off his new teammate, Marcos Ramirez.

Beaubier put in a 1:42.664 on his 58th of 60 laps on day two, placing him ahead of Moto2 regulars Simone Corsi, Hafizh Syahrin, and ahead of fellow class debutants Barry Baltus, Celestino Vietti and Tony Arbolino.

Following a wet day one, Beaubier said via Instagram, “Pumped to get some (mostly) dry laps in and get a feel for this beast before the year is over! Thanks @eitan_american_racing @american_racing_team for putting this together and @jakezemke for always having my back!”
