    That was a good time, It has been so long since I have been to a Speedway race! Lindback is my new hero. He was the only rider that seemed to get anywhere riding the outside, too bad it ended the way it did. I am also bummed that Sayfutinov couldn't make it, that kid is impressive.

    out of all the youngsters coming up from the USA, i think Austin has a good shot. he rides fast, smart, and with enough guts to make it happen. now if we could get hm on some better equipment, hed be a real threat.

    ricky is making it happen over there, and i am stoked to see some of our young kids coming up.

    when i was riding speedway in the early 2000's, i remember being at maely's ranch, and little ricky at age 8 or 9, would go out and run the 500cc bike better than i ever thought i would ever be able to.

    i knew he was going to go places, and it looks like hes doing well for wolverhampton

    If the event doesn't at least get posted to youtube after the fact, it might as well have not happened. :deal

    How much would you have been willing to pay?
    Nationals at Costa Mesa were $20
    1/2 mile at Pomona was $44
    I've never seen a Speedway event in the US with the pits so accessible.

    Pomona was 75 bucks with full infield passes and was able to watch from inside turn 2.

    I'd have paid easily 40 for a grandstand seat for Saturday.

    I'd pay 150 a seat for a speedway gp on us soil, on a "proper" size track

    for a real GP I would be willing to go up to $100+ if it was at a real stadium on a real GP sized track.
