I enjoyed KDub too...

This stadium is bigger so I'm hoping the track won't be so one line. Dungey's been super consistent & now that he's settled on a conventional shock he's getting better starts. Reed's getting close to putting it together. Funny that Milsaps is the points leader but still feels like "the sleeper." My picks Reed, Dungey, Milsaps. Lites Baggett, Musqin, & Geico Honda's new youngster Zach Bell.

He shook if off though.

It used to be that when Stewart crashed early he went on to win the main...time will tell if he's the same as he used to be!

Good race for the top three guys last night! Thought Dungey was going to get Milsaps, might have if there was more laps...but that doesn't count. Stewart...bummer, thought he really had a chance to get on the podium. Reed's going to hurt himself again trying to keep up with those guys!


Can't believe Bell walked away from that first crash. My first reaction was that his season was done Then he crashed heavy again...he'll learn, or he'll die trying! Wilson ran fairly good, made a few mistakes...be better next week if Musquin can get a good start and run with him. Hann ran good but his tactics of taking everyone out on every pass will come back and haunt him.


Can't wait until next week!

When I saw Bell laying on the track, out cold, head cocked to the side I thought he'd broken his neck! Was pretty shocked to see him standing & shuffling to the medic truck! Much less winning the LCQ! He's got skills, just hope he figures out sometimes you go faster by slowing down.

Stewart...what can you say? Just not his season & has to be frustrating knowing MX careers are fairly short lived. He showed some class immediately saying it's not his mechanic/support crew's fault. James has way more class than his loud mouth Dad!

450s so much parity & next week Eli rides too! Good stuff!

They folded operations and I never heard any real details. They were in financial distress for a while and rumors were that they would not even start the season. I guess there is a big deal to be announced this week or at the races this weekend regarding his future....read Honda noticed they were shafting a guy who placed in the top ten while riding a showroom fixer upper

Can't wait to see Eli on a 450

Who cares. He will be on a KTM the rest of the season.

Sounds interesting - a direct comparison of the honda and ktm with the same rider, about half way through the series, results will tell a story

Agree, I would have thought powerhouse Honda would have at least slipped Shorty a massaged cylinder head or two, pistons/rings and works suspension - they had nothing to lose, everything to gain

I was hoping Short would get a ride with a Honda team (maybe Two Two Motorsports). He seems to do really well riding red. We'll see if he can do good on orange again. RV2 is my favorite rider but I am really pulling for Milsaps to win the championship. Something about underdogs.

Looking for a good race tomorrow! Villipoto's gotta get his shit together and podium tomorrow or his bid for the title will be in a hole. Milsaps will podium again and I'm hoping for dungey to be there also but I don't think he'll have a good night. Stewart will be back with a vengance and Reed has to make something happen. So what does this all mean for saturday...one hell of a race


450's
Villipoto
Stewart
Milsaps
Tomac
Dungey


250's
Musquin
Wilson
Wharton
