    So they're paying $$ to have their banners around the track, but their tires are not legal to use?
    Speedway is always such a shitshow

    they’ve been a series sponsor for 4 years, just this year did the tire get homologated, and now a dodgy batch, so they’re suspended from use. It’s no ones fault but their own.

    Will Zmarzlik repeat? I wouldn't place a bet against it.
    Will Lindgren get lucky (again)? He'd have to win and Zmarzlik finish 4th or worse both days.
    Can Woffinden race his way to title #4? Outside chance, but it could happen.

    Whatever the result, it's going to be fun to watch!

    I’m out camping in Utah and there’s not enough WiFi to even think about watching the race.

    I think Zmarzlik repeats, with Woffinden within 5 points, and Lindgren in 3rd.

    It looks like Fredrik Lindgren is using a hydraulic clutch, I've never seen that before.

    A good few of the guys are using a hydro clutch.

    A lot of em are also using a “holeshot device” too.

    I don’t think any of em are using GM’s new NX engine, didn’t see any GTR engines either.

    I don’t think any are using the belt drive primary anymore.

    What's the advantage to the hydraulic clutch?
    It can't be lighter, is it?

    I’d imagine a more consistent modulation vs a cable

    I should go to the museum one day. I can probably walk there in 10-15 minutes.

    steve evans is promoting Perris having events, and Bakersfield is having events. Both are being live streamed at XSRA.com

    Brad spoke about hopefully AFTER the fair running a series of events.

    no word on industry, but Kelly has been out at Elsinore laying down a track, not sure what’s coming of that or not.
