The aftermath of that was a bit weird....guess he just had a stinger as he looked to be walking fine once he finally got up.

Was there any report of injury afterwards? (I went to bed after the checkered)

Even though Canard's my guy, it looked like equal blame for that. It was scary for a minute, Canard with a history of broken back laying in the middle of the track and not able to get up. Sure was good to see him walking without any apparent limp pretty quick.

Wonder what team Honda is going to say to those two?

Wharton is so used to taking people out.........he took himself out.

Had to be a long quiet drive back to the hotel after that one.

Once again sorry coverage from the speed team. Dungey was all over Villipoto for most of the race and then all of a sudden about halfway through the last lap he was no longer in the picture, something must have happened but not a clue from the booth.

Did Dungey try a desperation move that didn't work? Seems like it but perhaps we'll never know.

.........................So just how many stock motors/bikes do you think are running in the top 15 or even 20 at a 250 class Supercross race?
Privateer teams are spending serious coin these days,they dont have slow bikes.

Tomac is staying out of trouble and getting some experience for next year.

Kinda like Stewart out there taking points from the championship contenders?
Maybe everyone not in the top 5 in points should start on a second gate behind everyone else?

Again,write your own rulebook and give it to the Supercross promoters,as is, if you qualify you can race.

After coming together a few times already this season you would think the Muscle Milk boss would tell those two to relax a little around each other. Better to have two bikes finish than one.

drunk already for St. Pattys? that's a stupid position Stewart started the season in the 450 class Roczen and Tomac rode all of the west lites races and in my opinion should not be able to ride the 450 class as they have no vested interest in it and it dilutes the integrity of the 450 title run.

they never did another replay I was waiting camera in hand but the first replay looked like Canard was really whipping it and may have crossed into Barcia's airspace. I'm a big fan of Canard but it seemed like a racing incident. having said that you would think same team riders would give each other a little more room than Barcia gave Canard.

If their integrity is so high cant they beat some lowly 250 racers?

You've got lots of goofy opinions,duly noted. The AMA may be calling you at home for advice.

I know you're intoxicated but it is the integrity of the promotion of the series it has nothing to do with the riders. maybe you should lay down for awhile and sleep it off.

There are only so many rides available in the 450 class,otherwise half the 250 field would be in the running for pos. 5-20 in the 450's.Its not that the 250 riders cant compete.One of our local kids qualified for some 450 nationals a few years back on a relatively stock bike.250s are expensive to build/maintain.

I don't have a problem with it.

Every August, promising new talent from Loretta Lynn's signs a pro contract and starts riding the outdoors. Should that be banned??? What about guys that ride just enough to keep their 2 digit pro number?

If someone qualifies, let them race. If it spoils it for another rider, tough, should have ridden faster.
