    Did you get that from JustinTV? I followed the live timing there last night, interesting way to follow a race. No video or audio feed, just the timing chart live. Easier to tell where everyone was than being at the race in person or watching TV. Easy to tell where all 20 riders were, but you don't really know why they are where they are except for the comments in the chat room.

    Can't wait to see how the Villipoto penalty came about. And the 250's, no spoilers but WOW! Can't wait to see that,

    We where at the race. The 250 race was a good race.

    I even told my wife that if it was just follow the leader I'm done going to SX races. Luckily it was a good race because we already have Indy tickets.

    I didn't go to the pits but my wife and daughter did and it was wall to wall people. [​IMG]

    wow what a race. when RV passed JS the first time and Stewart passed him back :huh man I'm glad I didn't look at results and watched it on CBS.

    if they red cross flag the simple answer would be to have a green cross flag so you have the OK to go again. I didn't see Barcia go down he was right there and caught a tough block but they never replayed it.

    I think they were talking about Milsapps being faster in the whoops than Barcia and no sooner do they say that then they both enter the whoops and they don't show it..

    St. Louis seems to always be a good race and a neat track plus there is a bike museum in town and there seems to be a good vintage presence, it's high on my list for next year. Indoors and warm.

    wow what a 250 main. :huh

    4 laps left Wilson in striking distance of Hahn and Emig says "Hahn needs to settle in" and RC says "I don't know about that"...

    he isn't totally clueless.

    good to know. having been to Dallas last month for my first SX of the single shock/water cooled/disc brake/4 stroke/fuel injected/air fork/launch mode era :D :gerg:dhorse:wink: as much as I liked it I'd hesitate to go back the very next year. Altanta and St. Louis were high on the list and even higher now that I've been to Dallas.

    The pit pictures at St. Louis seem to be indoors. Anyone know where they pit? If that part of the stadium?

    That was a great race.

    As far as those red cross flags, when did this come into play? It really seemed to mess with the riders.

    They've always had the red cross flag but this year its been used a lot more, where they normally just waved the yellow. It also came out lots in practice at both live races I was at this year.

    Asterisk is trying to make it safer for the riders but I'm undecided if the amount of red flagging is necessary.

    Pits were indoors in an adjacent building. Quite a bit of room, but it was tough to make sure you saw everything in there. Especially the vintage MX'ers.

    Now that passing on the yellow is OK, it might spice up things a bit. :dunno

    Oh yeah, I guess RV did the math and decided that first was better than second. :rolleyes

    IS passing under a yellow o.k. now? I thought it wasn't? When RV passed Stewart he had just passed a Red Cross flag (by maybe 20') and was along side two more waving yellows. When a Red Cross is waved, for how long does the no-passing rule apply? Until you pass the flag (this doesn't seem right)? Or into the following corner? Will be interesting to see if anything comes of this.

    Here's the dope on passing under the various flags.

    http://www.racerxonline.com/2013/03/03/the-moment-red-lights-and-yellow-flags

    Apparently the pass under the yellows was legal....if he was out of the Red Cross zone.

    None of this matters now. But...

    Stewart clearly passed RV after he passed a red light but before they came up to a red cross flag. If you look, and you don't have to look hard. Coming into the corner JS passed RV on the left hand side of the track was a red light on and flashing before both riders got to the corner. Riders must roll each jump individually with no passing I sure the first red light is there because there might not be enough room out of the corner to slow down before the triple, but still it is a red light.

    I think they just opened a can of worms with with the passing on yellow flag. It will make the yellow flag just a meaningless at the blue flag.

    Haan said about lapped riders not getting out of the way and I'm sure he was talking about a Kawasaki rider (my guess Pro Circuit rider) that took a full lap to get out of the way. Now this guy wasn't trying to go slow or block he was just riding the fast line. And that is what gave Wilson a chance to catch up. He still would have just not as quick. At one point I thought one of the flag guys was going to hit him with the flag.

    The 250 race was not as close as the tv made it seem. When Wilson passed Haan, then Haan passed right back, it was hard to tell that was a pass on TV. But after that you could tell that the only way Wilson would make a pass is if Haan messed up. That was the last two laps.

    450 was much the same, they didn't show much of the last 6-7 laps because nothing was happening.
