    uhh... second turn there, boss.

    :bow to Short. Team folds, he takes a stock bike, makes the main, and finishes 6th. Well done.

    oops..I was watching Reed it was really cool seeing him/stewart/dungey/villopoto all lined up next to each other. he was definitley all out of shape. I don't know if Stewarts claim of being T boned by him was quite fair though. Stewart does the strangest things to step off the bike like that and just let it go, maybe it would have been better to STAY ON THE BIKE until things cleared. Then watching his bike spin around on it's own, that could have gotten ugly.

    I love it,Reed takes out 1/2 the field yet it's still all about Stewart.

    When is the Lites race on? All I see is 24 Hours of Daytona. Which is cool for me. I am pulling for my old shifter kart team mate from Woodstock,Ga Anthony Lazzaro. He is running down First place in his factory Ferrari GT. He is only 6 seconds back with 2 hours to go:clap

    You should move to Boston. I watched while on the treadmill at Planet Fitness. :1drink

    From my view, Reed was totally out of control and caused that mess. :cry

    Was Barcia injured? :ear

    Yeah, he got way out of shape on the whoops, and was a scud after that.

    so 2 weeks ago 20 year old Justin Barcia wins on a factory 450 Honda. the next 2 weeks we see him being treated by medical crew while the pack races on. I never really warmed up to him (I'm supposed to he's local) (but I slowly am) but really feel bad seeing this. the kid can ride and can win. tough breaks for sure. his display last week of staying on the bike after that incident ought to warrant some kind of special award. the turn 2 mayhem was so chaotic I didn't catch how Barcia went down and how he got hurt.

    20 years old. winning supercross races against the best in the world on 450's. :deal

    but..but..to have a competitive team you need a really big rig and 6 guys to change your suspension settings each lap of practice.

    +1 on :bow to Short. It would be nice to know how "stock" the bike is, and I'm sure it is relatively, but bars, levers, exhaust, wheels, brakes, etc. etc. etc. etc. I'm sure Honda likes his choice.

    I liked the black jacket which seemed to show absolutely no graphics.

    If the plug got pulled on his team no doubt due to finances, you think they'd let him keep the bike? What happens to it now they park it? Probably has every mod in the book so what now it just gathers dust?

    wierd. just saw Ricky Charmichael doing commentary on AX. His name is now on the AX series but this was the first event he'd been at this year.

    He was totally different, he made some good points, talked with longer sentences when answering questions and was providing relevant information. He had a team jacket and ball cap on not the sport jacket.

    could it be that simple?

    Just being in the presence of Ralph makes his IQ and talent plummet.

    Or is Sheheen on the AX commentary too?

    I enjoyed both races. It is a shame the T2 pile up kind of screwed up the SX race, but I really enjoyed watching Dungey rail. He is due soon. So are Stewart and Barcia. :1drink
