Not enough, you can do more.

Congrats, to Hahn for his first main win. - Stewart looked good. - Villopoto did not look comfortable in the whoops.

If Stewart's clutch didn't go on him last weekend he might be on a roll.
Good to see him not give up.

Did you see Tomac take out the top guys?

Me neither..

Good safe,smart ride.
He'll do better next week.
So will Canard.

since reading comprehension is not your strong point the whole premise of my argument was that bringing someone from one series to another when the series are joined at the hip could disrupt the points of the premier series which makes no sense in my opinion.

try to keep up.

The 450 race could have been called after 4 laps and I don't think the top 10 would have changed.

Maybe watching them replace a pole at Daytona would have been more exciting.

How could it be with such a deep field, everyone showed up to ride laps and not race?

I did that once during an Aprilia Cup practice at Pocono. There was a paraplegic rider sort of strapped to his custom equipped motorcycle. He got lots of attention by the media all weekend, but even I could see he was a hazard and foolish to be out there doing laps. Anyway, I was on the fence watching my son and working my watches when I see the paraplegic highside past an apex and lay motionless in the middle of the track, with traffic scattering to get around him. The corner worker was just up track of the apex and never saw the crash. I started hollering but she was clueless, so I hopped the fence ran onto a hot track and stood up track of the fallen rider and waved traffic wide. I got into a lot of trouble for that and I suppose it was foolish.

Flaggers are all volunteers and poorly trained. I was accepted to be a flagger at Austin MotoGP this year. They have no idea if I know anything or not... Fortunately, I had to decline because I'm driving a chase truck for the Mexican 1000, which will take up my vacation time.

From what I heard Wilson is just happy he could ride last night. His wreck during the week was pretty bad and from the looks of his face he still has the scratches. Don't worry next weekend he'll be at 90% and school everyone.

Not sure what's going on with Stewart knee except he did look good last night and maybe by him being hurt he'll ride smarter.

#1 and #18 were probably more than happy to finish 2-3. There was some dicing going on further back. Tomac being one of them. He said he can ride the 450 fast for a lap but riding it fast for a whole race is something he needs to get better at. Something tells me he will.

It's probably safe to say that everyone's high hopes for Chad Reed at the seasons start were based on him being %100, I seriously doubt he is. Too bad but he was busted up pretty good one year ago. Got to give him credit for being out there though he was still reeling off top 5's quietly until yesterday.

I was at atlanta last night, Stewart was flying and only made one small mistake all night, popo was flying and made no mistakes and could not catch him. Stewart just seemed faster than anybody in the long rythem section.
