and this has happened how many times?

A tornado could hit tomorrow and one of the display boats could hit RV and take him out.

I too have raced many championship series and had points taken and i've also taken some points.

Wah.


Its racing for petes sake.

The issue is that everyone complains about these "problems" with the current race series, but does NOTHING to help solve their problems.

Do you guys forget that guys used to race multiple series, of multiple disciplines of racing all in one weekend? (The guys that are more hardcore and more faster than anyone these days on their new fangled high strung expensive 4-stroke machines that the privateer can't afford.)




Get over it. Go start your own series. Get your own sponsors. And heck, make it so a 250cc 2-stroke can race against a 250cc 4-stroke, and allow 700cc 2-stroke fire breathing monsters if you want. Make your own rules & enjoy your spectacle.

Until then.......


Let's enjoy more of the great racing we've already gotten to see this year.

Andrew

That does it. I'm hoping Alessi takes out Milsaps and Villapoto in a ginormous pile-up and gives Dungey the crown.

...that is unless he is in it too. Canard deserves the top spot for the comeback of the year!!! Stay away from Alessi.

interesting to say the least.

are you saying that Davalos is paying to ride on the PC bike, or has sponsored his way onto the bike by way of cash to the PC team like a sponsor normally would but in this case the sponsor is the rider's father?

That would be Reeds job and then Stewie can lawn dart on the next lap...... no that was last year.... he is showing some restraint. Maybe he is growing up and wants 5 more years in his career

Wilson will sweep the series, somehow Musquin won the Urapeen World Championship but he has never shown anything over here.

So for 250s

1. Wilson
2. Wharton
3. Zach Bell
4. Musquin


As to the other issue, it's like someone just woke up one day and realized what happens in all race series. I don't recall any type of racing that didn't have ringers in, even redneck lawnmower racers do it.

So let me see if I read this correctly, Eli Tomac is being drafted by the NFL?

There was some talk but turns out he'd not eligible, he's currently playing flag ball with his little sister's team.
