Maybe He has different plans for Tray.

damn. I guess my advice to spectate with caution at the first turn was well founded. damn...In a way I'm glad I missed it I can't think of any # I'd less rather see cartwheeling out of a scrum than 41.

The Jammer helps induct Pat Moroney into Legends and Hero's inner circle. Alex truly is the driving force for keeping the flame alive. I thought it was somewhat sad that 35 years ago when Pat was crossing this very spot leaping into and then crossed up out of Gravity Cavity, he owned that place. The fences were lined with every bleary eyed MX stoner from the tri state area and New England and they all latched onto Pat. It was nice he got his place among the Legends but the ceremony wasn't exactly greeted with roaring cheers from the hills. Once upon a time they were. I flet like I was the only one there from 1978 besides Pat and the Jammer and for all I know I was. Hard to feel too sorry for Pat though I mean who else has a mint Harley XR 750 in their bedroom and parks his current riders in the living room? HD been very good to Pat.

I couldn't make the national this year. That's only the 4th or 5th MX event I've missed there since 77. I'll be back for the VMX next year and we might go out on Fri to run the CC too.

They really started freaking out over the glass right around the MXDN in 87. I remember seeing rusty 55 gl drums full of beer/liquor bottles at the entrance where they were searching everybody's cars and taking them. Some of them were getting broke. I was feeling like Bluto from Animal House when they took the bar out of Delta house.

I cringe every time he does that... I would like to see Canard take credit for his own results for a change (just like he does for his failures).

I'm happy I'm not the only heathen who thinks this.

Just watching the races again....

So no footage of JS7 going down in moto 2? .... CRAP... Hate that for him.

Anybody notice 32 bringing it? after going down in the first turn he ran from the low 30s to 11th! Fucking kid is gonna be at the front soon.


And... ELI TOMAC!! incredible.

Indeed. It's an awkward moment that barely passes as a drinking game.

Keep politics and religion out of sports!

Even more interesting, I watched Lorettas and even most of those kids were doing the same. I almost feel like it is what the sponsors or managers are telling them to do so they have a good reputation with the fans or something.
