And finally--the race:


Indy kind of sucks to view races (or take pictures) because, as you can see, there's some really ugly and high fences around the track to prevent 555lb chunks of Nascar bits slaughtering 150 people at a time. Add to that such a tiny grid of bikes and it's basically not much different than watching bikes just go round and round, with a position change ever 5 minutes. MotoGP is a spectacle for both the eyes and ears, but it's just not the same as watching a 'racing' event where you're on edge, seeing men battling it out. Instead you just see men riding really fast. If you've ever seen Schwantz or Rainey or Doohan or Lawson elbow to elbow you know what I'm talking about. Fortunately we stuck around for the XR race--talk about AWESOME.

When watching a bunch of relatively inexpensive Harley Davidsons swapping positions, dive bombing each other and sliding in and out of corners is far more interesting than MotoGP, something needs to be done. I'd much rather have watched another XR race than watch another MotoGP one.
