Torque TV is showing that the races will be broadcast live, but no schedule is posted. Fanschoice.tv doesn't have it on their live links page.

I admit I am pretty excited for the next MA race. Sure would be nice for them to get a dry weekend, but who knows what will happen.

Cycleworld just put up a really good article about Team Westby and Josh Day, I think it really puts into perspective what these guys are all about.

Here is the link for the full MotoAmerica schedule. They have a very busy weekend planned.

If it's anything like Road Atlanta, Torque.tv will be broadcasting the races as they happen.

Good article... The grieving is so palpable. I hope Josh Day can make something of this. I think he will.

I think he will to. He seems to have really bonded with his bike, and certainly has a good team around him. I know I'm rooting for him.

Josh Herrin stalks JD Beach nearly the entire race then makes his move with a half-lap to go to take Supersport race 1.

Watched the Superstock 600 race. Pretty neat they had 35 bikes on the grid. If the weather holds out for tomorrow the superbike races ought to be pretty good.

Only a rabid fan would tolerate the techno-bufoonery of that live-streamed-drivel. Johnathan Green must be kept away from razor blades and other sharp objects until they get this cake fully baked. I know they will. Hang in there JG.

The principals of the series have the pedigree to produce the best racing we've yet seen on this continent. I just think the throttle locked WTFO right before the flag dropped on the race season and caught them ill prepared with the television thing. Terrible CBS coverage!

I was seduced by the promise of live streaming but went limp when confronted with the home made porn quality of the product. I'm willing to cut them some slack while they gather it up and get it aimed straight.

Helpful suggestion? Call Nick Inatch to commentate and find someone that can properly operate the camera selection switches on the panel. Nick and Johnathan could work.

Were all rooting for you...aren't we?
