Didn't get home until afternoon today and got to watch on Speed. I was watching to see what I missed, should have been watching to see what Speed missed.
In all fairness there is a LOT going on during a SX event.

First thing they didn't show was the reason Dungey didn't pass Millsaps, with almost a lap to go a lapper got in their way in one of the 180 bowl turns, Dungey had Millsaps set up for a pass in that turn but there was a lapper in the turn, he was trying not to be in the way and held his line but there just wash't room for three in that turn and Dungey lost some bike lengths coming out of the turn. He reeled Millsaps back in pretty quickly but didn't have time to make a pass.
The other thing that was somewhat hard to tell from the TV is that Reed was holding up both Millsaps and Dungey, hate to say that being a long time Reed fan but that's what it was. Without Reed in second place it would have been a three way race for first place, not sure who would have come out on top but it looked like Dungey might have.

Carnard just couldn't get through the first two turns clean, however once he got moving he was running the same pace as the leaders. But way back. Both in his heat and the main.

Don't know about Barcia, he just didn't seem like Barcia in the main, couldn't get close enough to Brayton to even try for a pass. Seems like all the top guys except Millsaps has had a race or two like that this season, just can't get their rhythm for whatever reason.

And the Traxxas cars were fabulous!
Even got to watch on the BIG screen many of the same commercials we see at home, but no Flo

Altogether an Awesome show!
