    Thanks Kirk. I'm wondering if thats the static track side cameras like they had at Stockton or something closer to what was offered for Sacramento and Indy with cameras following the action. Sounds like the former.

    Watching the Tun 1 camera now. I'm working today so I'll be able to keep an eye on the race as mild consolation.

    Cody Johncox over Shayna Texter by .008 in the Pro Singles main. Vanderkuur another .053 back.


    Smith has a mechanical in the main while leading. Mees wins, Wiles 2nd and Robinson 3rd. I read that Smith didn't go out for the 2nd qualifying session and didn't do the sighting lap. Confidence or were they concerned about the engine?

    Just walked in the house and sat down... can you imagine a XR750 PINNED!!!!! for 18 laps except for a couple of breaths while they negotiated traffic? Weather you like it or not, Bryan Smith is "a machine" that crowd is operating like a "Race Team" and it shows in thier Pro Single program also. JL10 was reppin on the Triumph but had some "mechanicals" in the main that had him going backwards. The track held up very well and was crazy to watch, and there were a pile of spectators. I wouldn't be surprised if they did this again, and next time at night... "Hack" and I discussed how hard it is to imagine how fast the track could be at night. Had a great time.

    It would have been mechanical, the only person to fall down all day was Brandon Robinson, he low sided in turn 2 in his heat race, restarted in the back an charged back to the front to win the heat!

    All Stars National Flat Track Series short track at the multi purpose arena on Friday night, Springfield Mile I on Saturday afternoon and Springfield Mile II on Sunday afternoon. It doesn't get much better than that in one weekend!
