Should be a great night of racing, I'm gonna have to miss it. My predictions:
450s - Villo, Dungy, Millsap
250s - Musquin, Wilburn, Wharton

Well, he's out there in practice given'r...good for him! I would've never thought he'd bother to come back this race.

Looks to be a good race tonight

msx

at this point, i don't think anyone can outride villopoto. the guy's just a monster. seems to get good starts, and his pace is grueling. the other guys nip at him, then he grinds it out.....

Great ride by Ryan Dungey!!

I like Villipoto's comment..."I had to let him by"...they were banging pretty good and Dungey got by fair and square. I don't think Villipoto wanted to push the issue after Dungey was by though...but Dungey got by on his own, not by Villipoto "letting him by".

Villipoto is going to be in back off mode now for the last 3 races. As long as he's out front, anyone that aggressively wants to get my him for the lead will be "let by". I think Villipoto will take Seatle though. 22 points is a lot to make up on a guy that's running in out front all the time...but ya never know

I chuckled when RV made that comment! Dungey rode his "usual" smooth, make it look easy style 'til the last few laps. Then he got aggressive. He ain't no dummy! Didn't want to give RV time to retaliate. That was some great racing for sure!

Wharton's aggressiveness in the 250s surprised me. Not really his style & I think it hurt him. Musqin ran away but I continue to be impressed with Hahn's passing. Sometimes he looks like he's right on the edge but pulls it out! Very Fun night of racing.

#7 was up to his usual tricks. What is the deal with Alessi this year. I know his #2 finish last year was helped by about 5 fast guys being out but now he gets his hole shot and finishes 18th or some such thing. At least he's consistent. Dunget was great, Wharton not so much.

Well, Dungey with a poor start again. Lost 3rd in the points, this one's all but over. Villipoto will cruise to the end now, probably wrap it all up at Sault Lake next Saturday. Fortunately the race in on speed again!

Tomac handed the win over to Roczen...that serious is pretty much getting set in stone also. 250's were entertaining anyway

Villipoto wins his 3rd championship in style! Can't believe he went for it, thought he'd settle for a third. Dungey and Milsaps pushed him all the way start to finish!! Great race!!

The 250's were pretty entertaining again. Roczen's lack of effort almost cost him big time but Tomac's loss of concentration made the point gain much less. He had a great opportunity to come out of this one and go into Vegas with the points lead but it kinda fell apart for him and is 5 points down.

Vegas should be a good one!!
