    I watched the Supermoto in Columbus in 2003 and the asphalt race at Charlotte. Charlotte was a relatively short track. A few crashes at low speed at Columbus, one being Chris Fillmore, and no crashes at Charlotte. A half mile is probably too big, the short tracks are likely very much like a bit bigger indoor races on concrete.

    If all racing was based on injury and fatalities no races would be held. Pretty simple. If that's what guides your attendance did you quit going to dirt track races?

    By the way, I actually think more of the crap comes from you. :dunno

    Right off I can think of 8 states we have went to for national dirt track races ! How many have you been to (NATIONALS) ? WHY IS A HALF MILE TOO BIG ?

    @ossadmr Good for you!

    Did you actually think about the topic while you read? Seems like you missed it there when you made your comment. Go back, read what you wrote, what it was about, then read what I wrote and think what it was about.

    I believe they have. I see on the AFT site that the Charlotte Half Mile is scheduled to re-air on October 22 at 6:00pm Eastern time.

    Personally at the ripe old age of 19 for some reason or another I simply found it fun as heck to slide around sideways, even though I was riding a Sherpa T. The Sherpa S made it even more fun. I got the S because I thought the fat front tire looked cool on the flat track and TT bikes in the magazines. Then I got one and started playing. Never thought it would end bad and it didn't. Plus in street riding the skills learned are, on occasion, tested. Like when the rear end steps out in some sand or pea gravel when turning in an intersection.

    Most of all, I still find sliding to be crazy fun. The reason why I ride a dual sport.

    Super moto is a lot of pavement no matter how you look at it.

    Yes. It's not a contest to see who has the longest dick. Really, it's not a contest. Take a hike. You'll feel better.

    when was your last National?

    the last I went to was the last one at Pomona.

    I was going to go to the Perris one in 2018, but it was the same night as the speedway National.
