I think you'd change your mind after being able to watch the other two classes plus the QP sessions if you have time in your schedule to watch those. Well worth it.

Agreed. The feeder classes have all the real racing. The motogp class is boring unless you're not that into racing battles. That said, I'm holding out hope for some great battles this season.

Depending on your budget it's not much money. 10 bucks or so a weekend for practice, qualifying and the races. It's a pretty good deal.

Considering the commercial free coverage "Live" or "On Demand" of all of the practices and QP sessions for all classes, it is a friggin' bargain.

If you prefer your races spliced and edited and interrupted and you are a fan of Flo, stick with SPEED.

Loving it so far!

I'll be there. I'm taking my Girlfriend to her first national that day. She's pumped. I showed her that an 1/8th mile pave oval can be really entertaining last weekend. Those things combined with the 1200+ miles of hiking in our area makes it hard to consider living anywhere else.

I'm hoping to see you at the Unadilla race this year. Already asked for time off.

It's called oversteer.

Some refer to it as " backing it in", steering with the rear wheel.

As simple minded or idiotic as it may sound I feel like I like watching and rooting for Americans and the smaller cc classes have none. Maybe I should give it a try and quit being close minded.

If follow the series a while you will find people to root for even if they have funny names.

Oversteer but not backing it in. "Backing it in" is done on corner entry. I think you'd find a bit a wheel spin going on in those pictures. It's awesome no matter how you slice.

I doubt it. I think it's just the camera angle and a big lens gives the impression of the bike going sideways when he's most likely going through the apex (any of the pro photog's here know that particular turn ).

Of course, I've been known to get things completely wrong so take it for what it's worth

If you look at both pictures you can see the tire mark leading right to it, it's spinning.
