I had a great time in Dallas yesterday. Took my 14 year old down there who enjoyed the day as well. Was the first time for us to attend a Super-cross. What a show they put on! Great experience, especially for my kid.

Cowboy stadium is impressive.

Maybe not. He still could have fractured his neck or spine or had internal injuries and despite walking off, could have died later. I don't see the athletes being put first, the show is. I DQ a rider one year as a AMA MX ref. He had been in the hospital a few days before and had a concussion. His dad was furious but it was the right call. If he crashed/died on the track and I knew about his current brain injury, I'd not only be liable but regret it forever. The doctor that was on our staff agreed.

I just watched the crash again in slow motion. I don't have any reservations about my original opinion.

I'm impressed!? You can make better medical diagnosis from a TV screen than an MD on the scene. Having been up close and personal to a few concussions that boy sure wasn't acting like he had one. I could tell because I was sitting about 80 yards away.

As for them just wanting to let the show go on, it hasn't been all that long ago you could die during a race and barely get a couple of yellow flags, I've seen that too. It's come a long way, two weeks in a row they have red flagged a race.

quit while your ahead not the brightest move my god talk about "when somebody say's hey watch this" it's a fucking accident waiting to happen and given it's into a semi dark corner of the track why bother most people can't see it anyway.

total privateer? He had a tractor trailer the size of a battleship. there were privateers in regular vans, Andrew Short does not fall into that category.

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!

so we can say Villopoto was holding up Reed?

Thanks but I'm only as good as the subject matter.

They scored a top team boss, flushed a turd, and developed a new bike, in a very impressive short time.
