    Well we can hope the bumps are gone and the track will be dust free.

    I don't see anything that's going to stop Marquee's undefeated in America streak. Should the unforseen occur, Rins will shock the world and get a win for Suzuki.
    Austin thrives on weirdness. :0-0

    In the meantime, more hill country.

    Weather is going to be a factor.

    I'll be there Saturday. 100 percent chance of rain.

    Lone Star Rod & Kustom Car Show is this weekend. Lots of good stuff check the schedule. The party at Austin Speed Shop on saturday night is pretty good. Between the GP and the LSR Austin will be great this weekend.

    Round 3 of Roland Sands AMA SuperHooligan championship racing is Saturday night in Austin as part of the Handbuilt show. The track is a TT layout rather than an oval ensuring some extra mayhem. Should be fun.

    Did I miss something or did I see correctly that the only Moto America class racing is Superbike? Even with some of the stock 1000 guys entering their bikes in the class it will be an awfully small field (and pits).

    I understand keeping 5 different national classes out to make sure there is enough track time but only bringing one class and maybe 20 bikes or so? Anyone else think that makes MA and U.S. racing look like shit to the rest of the world?

    There are six guys who could win any MotoAmerica Superbike race this season. As long as at least two are mixing it up at the front, no one cares how many bikes are on the grid. Judging by last weekend at Road Atlanta, the MotoAmerica Superbike races will be very entertaining.

    Worry about a bumpy, dusty track giving the U.S. a bad image instead of MotoAmerica Superbike.

    Dead right about the condition of the track. I think over the course of last season most people forgot about the clusterfuck of last year. But if we get a repeat....
    It’s going to look very bad indeed....
