I'm diggin' that! I wonder how we can watch it in the USA? You know Honda wanted Nicky cuz there's a real strong chance an American is going to stand on top of that podium.

Brad Baker could repeat the AMA Grand National Championship again this year. If Sam Halbert stays healthy he will be in the fight. Don't count out Jared Mees or Brandon Robinson as well .

Brad could and should kick everyones ass in Spain in a few weeks if his KTM SMR works as well as it should .

And I'm cheering for my Triumph guys Johnny and Mikey to push for podium finishes. George Latus is a really competitive guy, I think they'll be moving forward in the pack.

A few years back, 4 or 5 maybe, there was a race in Savannah ga, before they headed to Daytona. Do they still do this or was this kind of a once and done? I don't believe it was worth any points just a cash run. Loads of fun, I believe it was a 1/4 mile track.

Yes, Oglethorpe Speedway in Pooler, Ga. is what you are talking about. I attended last year and had a great time. A lot of the top pros were there. 1/2 mile track. The dates this year are Mar. 7/8. HIGHLY recommended.

I want to give Kentucky a plug here, as he deserves it.

I found out about the Next Moto Champion radio show back in November. I think I have listened to every Tuesday evening flat track show since. Currently, the hosts are Cory Texter and Scott Deubler. Starting at the first of the year, Barry Boone gained his own show on Wednesday evenings, called Talking Motorcycles. I highly recommend listing to both programs. You can stream live, or listen later on. I'll let Barry fill in the rest, and keep up the GREAT work you do!!

One question Kentucky, are you still going to be announcing at the flat track races?

Enjoyed the episode with Brad Baker, Chris Carr and Mark Gardiner. Good discussion. Also enjoyed Dave Despain's straight talk about niche vs. mainstream. Thanks Barry.
