From my unofficial lap times Brad was cruising in the finale...I'm sure he didn't want to take Marquez out. Maybe we can get Marquez out on the Indy mile during MotoGP weekend?

he kept looking back for him, he definitely slowed up, the rest of the field closed right up. I don't think he meant to take him out either, I'm sure they both wanted a photo finish.

Great event! How often do you get to see the current MotoGP champion racing against an AMA flat track champion? Sorry Marquez went down. Just a "racing incident":) Baker seemed upset that Marquez went down. Probably worried Marquez might have gotten injured. Thanks to Cycle World for streaming for free!

Very cool event, looked like everybody had fun. Marquez was pretty impressive on dirt, but I think Baker was taking it easy! Hope to see it again! It would be great to see Brad on a road racer and the guy who built his singles bike was into local road racing here, Ben Schenk, so it might happen?

There was some sandbagging. When Baker kept looking back for Marquez I'll bet he was thinking, "They said they would only buy my plane ticket home if I keep it close."

Here is the main, pretty good action, Brad seems to adapt to 17s with rains pretty easily. nd it would be cool to see Marc come over the US and try a short track race.

That, to me, is ballet on 2 wheels. This Marquez kid looks like he may have a future racing bikes...

Ya think?

I like Baker's comment on getting Marc out on the half mile here...Honda might have a little hesitation in letting him out there.

I'm kind of surprised Honda let him do this race. I like this Marquez, he seems like a "hey, let's do it" kind of racer. Rare in todays $$$ world of racing.
