Sometimes not.

Race times slowed down dramatically due to the rain that started just as the 250's finished their main. Rained thru most of the 450 main. Milsaps is good in the wet...maybe Daytona this year will be a mudfest again

Wasn't really referring to the actual lap times, but the rider order, doesn't correspond to the qualifying order too well.

Dungey got a shock that works for the main. And Poto crashed twice. That will slow you down a bit. He probably didn't have a great rain set up.

I didn't see his second crash. Here it is:

They finally showed that crash a long time after it happened.

About like a lot of things in that race.

I thought the camera coverage was better than previously. They had multiple camera angles on most incidents which I don't remember in past SPEED coverage.

Now if the director would just keep with the action on the track, and jump off of a group when they start running single file...

SX is tough to cover when so much is going on all over the track. There were many times when you could hear the crowd roar while they were showing something else.

Still, watching SX live is the way I would rather spend my Saturday nights (as sad as that may sound ).

I think that these are average lap times. RV might have had the fastest lap at some point during the race but he probably had a few laps where his bike was on the ground that dropped him down in the average lap time category. And race finish category.....

I don't think that sounds sad at all, maybe because I'm the same way.

But in less than 2 weeks I'll be watching SX live AND at the same time on that crazy big TV screen in Cowboy Stadium.
It's pretty bad when you pay all that money to be there in person and find yourself watching the race on TV.

When you're there watching is when you understand how much is going on at the same time. The crowd roars and you can't figure out what happened where.

Those were each riders personal fast lap for the race.

At some point RV may very well have been the fastest rider on the track. But we saw what happened to him too. The rain was making it tricky. Stewart was taking different lines than everyone else and he was paying the price in the whoops and on that triple he kept missing.

You're right, they are the fastest times. Not average. My bad.
