3 125 F.I.M Championships to 2 250 Championships.
Close.

I was referring to MX background.

Gaston had an MX backround if I am clear on what you are referring too.

Right.
As in you are correct.

He had three championships(125)to Kini's two(250)

I'm just saying I think Heinz was a better MXer IMHOP


Back to SX,Brayton felt he could have run RV after the whoops on the last lap.

Yeah, the last lap I felt like I could have ran it in after the whoops but I would have had to run it in pretty deep. He made a little mistake through them and I had a pretty good drive. But like I said earlier, it’s early in the season and I don’t want to start that.

Toyota has six vehicles that it's bringing to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show next week, all of which were developed by and for people who live active lifstyles. Four of them are the result of the Toyota Dream Build Challenge, which tasked a team of athletes and vehicle customization shops to build Toyota sedans, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles in seven weeks that would enhance performance in their respective sports.

We'll lead off with the CamRally Camry, developed by NASCAR driver Parker Kligerman, Kyle Busch Motorsports and Mooresville, NC shop Detroit Speed, Inc. for the Dream Build Challenge, because it appeals to us gearheads (sure, call us one-sided). It was totally transformed into a rally vehicle, and it has to be the most badass Camry we can remember seeing. The sedan is always a bit flaccid-looking in stock form, but the CamRally's wide body and other exterior upgrades and the turbocharger make us forget about that, as do its stripped, painted interior and Sparco race seat.
We're not going to judge a vehicle based on its name, because the 'Let's Go Moto' Tundra, a creation spurred by Joe Gibbs Racing Motocross (JGRMX) teammates Josh Grant and Justin Brayton for the Dream Build Challenge, is a great addition to any dirt biker's arsenal - and we could see ourselves towing a track car behind it with a set of tools, tires and other equipment stored in the bed. JGRMX's shop and N-Fab handled the build.

I'll bet it has a cool-ass gas tank.

It's not cool until you've got two pieces of duct tape over the cap and it says Husqvarna on the side. Coy Gibbs may have a lot of money but he'll never have enough to buy duct tape.

His contract probably has a small clause for DNFs. About 20 sections below the BIG clause for winning the championship.

His decision maximized his points and his chance at the title. That's what he's paid to do.

Stewart actually minimized his points and lowered his chance of winning the title. He only could have gotten more points if he finished the race and had fewer riders pass him. The fewer the points he has the less his chance of winning a championship.

In contrast to Stewart, here's a Dakar racer pushing on with bent bars - going for points, not quitting

Give it a rest.

That Dakar racer might be 100+ miles out and has to get to the pit so that they can work on that bike all night. Then he gets on a straight bike the next morning. If he parks the bike, he is done for the year, not just one race of a series.
Very little similar except that they are both motorcycles.
