I watch the races on YouTube,usually by Monday night they're up.

Wharton did a couple feints at Bowers then did a full on bermshot wide open into Bower's back wheel,they show it from the back and side and its a huge impact and highsides Bowers into the next whoop.

Racing is racing..but,you dont see Dungey/Villapoto or any other top rider doing the tricks Wharton has become famous for,its obvious when he enters a corner and gets on the inside,hes aiming for impact on the way out of the corner many times.

Rollerball.

Fresh sharp Metzelers on a 440 Maico! Or my old 495KTM twin shocker..........that bike could throw some roost! No brakes, but that's a detail.

Super Hunky did a story of dong that in the 80's to a course in Brownsville PA

I raced a GNCC there later in the 90's

Good stuff

Wharton likely cost Bowers some cash, folding travel money.

Might be enough to have Bowers punt his ass, but Bowers just collected his bonus money for his full time job.

Up where the big boys are, that's some serious coin for those positions.

Yeah money gets involved,costs a lot for a team to put a rider out there week after week. Then to have a rider wantonly knock riders down who are faster then him just doesnt seem right.
Maybe Im just old school.

Hahn wicked it up and got away from Wharton as quick as he could once Wharton started playing dive bomb with him,Hahn was clearly faster but Wharton was willing to knock him off the track if possible.

What goes around comes around,these guys race each other regularly and reputations build.

Funny deal though,Wharton looked fast in heat and practice,he was right in there,then he comes out in the main and cant hang,starts riding defensive and taking guys to the wall. Head case?

Sounds like a great complement to me!

And Wharton is from redneck country.

That mop must be good for another few degrees of heat in the Texas sun at the outdoors.

Could have only been better if he was on a big 2 stroke and used the greens heavily.
