Good to know. I was wondering if they really were streaming live.

Gotcha...Thanks, makes sense from the map. They keep the big bikes off of the turn#1 and 2 tri-oval.
I knew it had to be something, the laptimes were so different.

Can't believe Cardenas didn't pull that off! Congrats to Josh.

We couldn't see Cardenas wheelie coming out of the chicane from the grandstands, but it was obvious something had happened. Herrin suddenly had 15 bike lengths.

The racing was interesting for some positions, and the camera work was pretty good. I was very surprised at how the last lap unfolded.

But talk about an event with the stench of general disinterest.

Remember when the big debate about the Daytona 200 was limiting the number of riders to 80 (iirc) or so in 3 waves of riders?

Almost as depressing as the small number of fans-- no fooling, it looked like there were more people on the track (crew, etc.) than watching.

I'm starting to feel that roadracing is just not engaging enough for many fans these day. As brutal and difficult as it is, without an appreciation of what the riders are actually doing it looks unexciting compared to, say, supercross. And that's in person. It's even worse from a TV perspective-- as roadracing doesn't work well with the "switch the camera/image every 2-4 seconds" viewing that today's seemingly ADD-afflicted young fans need.

Know what else I found depressing/surprising? Larry Pegram's comments re looking for another sponsor. Instead of saying something like "hey, I can offer you a lot of TV time for your product" he says "anyone out there have extra money in the advertising budget to sponsor me?" Not what I'd expect from a person who's accomplished so much wrt putting together a credible effort for so long.

And pulls out a third place on a new-to-him bike....

According to their website, Speed is showing the 200 at 1:30 on Sunday, flattrack at 6, and Superbike & Sportbike at 9. Eastern time.

Well that's the problem. He can't promise that because the TV deal isn't really clear enough to give real exposure numbers to a sponsor.
