Wow. Motoamerica is slim pickins. Not very compelling racing at all. The 600s is a joke. JD Beach then a bunch of no names. Superbike is a little better and has some potential with everyone trying to beat Elias. We will see.

Hayden Gillim is no joke and Nick McFadden has developed well in the 600 classes and is one of the next generation of riders. ValentinnDebise has been out with a concussion and fractured disc and Cory West is riding the Suzuki for Team Hammer. Ashton Yates is the first to podium in 2 different classes in a long time and Anthony Mazzioto are 2 of the KTM cup riders that have moved up and can be contenders. Braeden Ortt and Daytona Anderson will both podium this year as well. Lots of excitement in the 600 Supersport group.
See you at the races!

The Spaniards really seem to like this track when it's dry. That was some performance by Mathew Scholz on Saturday in the rain, though.

Hand bothering him so Max only qualified 15th. Trying to get him more comfortable with bike for the race. Electronics seem right, playing with suspension! Race at 3:30!

Just Moto America? Or will you be there Vintage Weekend too?

If you'll be there for Vintage Weekend, I hope to see you that Saturday!

I'm at the track and was sitting just outside Tim's pit watching. If you ain't rubbin', you ain't racin'!!

BTW: Tim's rider, Max apparently fried a clutch during race #1.

After the shenanigins at RA, I can't wait for Laguna Seca in three weeks time!

Time for Elias to get retribution on Camereon "I'm Mr. Innocent" Beaubier.

Herrin will be the wild card. He's got his Yamaha on rails and the lack of HP won't be a difference maker at Laguna. It's a riders track. I was very impressed with his riding at RA. Not sure he's ever been better.

MA Superbike got good real fast.

Very entertaining.

PS. I saw a "tweet" roll across the screen during the 2nd Superbike race claiming Jason Pridmore as the best color commentator in motorsports.

I agree. The guy is fantastic with his insight. Greg White doesn't bother me as much as he used too either.

Elias needs to watch ALL the tape from the RA races!! Turn one with Beaubier and Elias come to mind. I saw Suzuki's formal press release, so yeah, it ain't over, for sure!!

I will also be at RA this weekend with my buds that race those bikes from the countries whose language I don't understand! I'll find you Buell and EBR guys!

Jason and Greg seemed to be of the opinion it was just a racing incident...

They were sugar coating it big time IMHO. That wasn't MM bad, but still.

It was serious enough to call in ELias, Beubier and Herrin to discuss the matter.

I think they were covering their bases. Here is all three talking about the incident:


Naturally, Suzuki and Elias are pissed (I'd be surprised if they weren't). I'll take Herrin as the "Neutral Party" here.

Not as bad as I originally thought. Tony was backing it in and that contact probably wouldn't have caused the crash it he wasn't sliding into the corner. I will change my opinion to racing incident.

The Day After...The Day After...
Just got back from Laguna Seca for the WSB/MotoAmerica round there and had a great time.
Bumped into Rob Weaver and Stacy, and Steve Slaughter and Sunny by the Pirelli Tire center in the pits.
Wearing my Buell shirts while walking around met a few still very passionate Buellers. In Ducati Island someone walks by me and yells out "Now that's a proper motorcycle shirt"!

Talked with Bill ( I hope I got that right ) from down south, for a long time while a Uly owner interrupted us just to say HI.

Saw Smoke and crew, and kept trying to say hi to Cory West but he was duing time announcing and was never in the pits when I was there. I hope the crew told him some dumb guy with a Buell shirt was here and bought a shirt from us too. Dang it Cory, I was rootin for ya!

I think it was better than last year in the Market Place and even bought a couple Galfer rotors for $225 each for my bikes in the future.

Three laps on the fan laps with one real blitz down the front straight through turn one, and a couple of decent double apex turn two corners without screwing up like Tony. All good fun!!
