The Atlanta track WAS a track you could pass on! More so than many of the others.

There were passing spots at the Atlanta race,more then most Supercross races, San Diego was a no passing track with its hard pan one line layout.
Guys still figure ways to pass.

I watched Wharton do that obvious takeout to qualify at this last race,just flew in where there was no room and knocked the guy down and he was already jumping up with the throttle wide open to take advantage.
Somehow doesnt seem like real racing,any pro can knock people down at any given time.
Other guys see he got away with it and they will start playing rollerball.

Let RV tell you himself.

Racer X: Last week you said you were going to be happy with what you get, and try to have more fun with it. So, are you happy?

RV:
Second is good. Made two points on Davi [Millsaps]. He’s kind of the guy that we need to concentrate on now. Stew is not really that guy. But man it would have been nice to win and get five points on Davi. It seems like every track we’ve been to, at this point, the track sets the limit on how hard you can ride. I was doing the rhythm section a little bit different than James and it was slower. I struggled in the turn after the rhythm section all day. I just felt doing that the way I was doing it was going to be consistent for 20 laps. It wasn’t the dragon’s back, it was that next turn after tripling in there. I just struggled in that turn all day.

From here:
http://www.racerxonline.com/2013/02/...s-from-atlanta

* Flug,I read this real slow because comprehending is one of my weak points.

So, what is the lowdown on the Chaparell team? Why did it end up folding? I never heard the ways only that it folded, which seem like took about 10 minutes

If Stewart was faster than you, just say so!!

I have never seen so many guys pontificate on how sweet second place is!

A lot of the comments you guys are making is why I enjoy the outdoors series more than Supercross. They is a lot less holding back outdoors. If your faster, you can pass everywhere. Watching riders hang it out outdoors is pure speed vs terrain. Just so many more line options.
To go quick on a Supercross track you need to go faster than the next guy in short bursts. The course is limiting when this can happen. Its so much about timing and precision.

They let the girls ride outdoors, but not in SX.

Why is that?

I think the quote is "little bit different than James and it was slower", you think it should have been " little bit different than James and he was faster"?

Either way, he just doesn't sound hungry.

so did anyone see at Atlanta post race when they returned from a commercial and had a seating section view of the podium area? you could see Stewart chugging a bottle of water, hands it to someone, they they hand him the Red Bull can with the big straw on it.

The Muscle Milk guys are even worse. Dude. That thing i empty.

Danica dont ride bikes!Seriously the outdoors is where its at for me,room to PASS,holeshots dont mean EVERYTHING,conditioning is more IMPORTANT.Girls are too SMART to ride indoors!They have enough trouble finding rides for the MEN.
