Loving the live timing!


edit to add:
Semi 1 is lining up!
Turn four is a high sider! It looks to chuck the racers as they get in the middle of the turn. Semi winner #20 about got thrown off bike and track on last lap at that corner. :scary

There is nothing like watching those bikes kick it up and flop around in the cushion and groove, while fighting for lines.

Flat Track Live reports the AMA may shut off the stream for the main events due to agreement with SPEED who is showing the races on Sunday. Only upside is that there may be live streaming from other races this year. One can hope.

I'd complain but it was pretty damn cool to see the heats.

I think he needs to be more aggressive racing though, he's TOO nice!
+1 He is a good kid. I went to high school with Kevin and our parents grew up together. Still get to hang out sometimes when he is back in town. The Athertons wrenched for Brad last year and he stayed with them here in Michigan during the season. I met Brad the first time a few years ago when he was in town with Kevin. What a super laid back kid. Hope he does well this season.

Brad led a lot of laps last night but came home second... Maybe he can seal the deal tonight.

Well that sucks. So will there be any place online to view recordings of the races?

The rulebook is quite specific. No coatings can be added...no backdated or updated parts may be swapped...AND..................................... .........
The AMA is not running the races, DMG (Daytona Motorsports Group doing business as AMA Pro) is running the show and applying the rules. The AMA sold Pro racing to DMG 5 years ago.
The Kawasaki forks are legal because the coating comes stock on the Kaw forks from the factory.
All that said....THERE ARE TOO MANY RULES!!! If it doesn't give a rider an unfair advantage let them race!
The Daytona short track will be shown on SPEED Sunday (March 17) at 6 PM eastern, 5 PM central. Probably the last flat track race ever on that channel!
