It's three days away from the first National of the year and there's no news about the MoFoCo's racing team. I see that Brandon Robinson is going to be riding an Indian, but there's no mention about whether he's being replaced with another rider, or if Harley's even going to race. Looking at entries, Jarod Vanderkooi and Sammy Halbert are entered, but there's no third member of the team. I can't find any press releases about the team at all, and the H-D Racing website is still showing the same propaganda as last year. There's been no mention of any Contingency money, so I'm wondering if the factory is about to withdraw from Flat Track racing. That would just be another nail in the coffin, as far as I'm concerned.

Crusty I have been wondering about that also. I think it is a shame that Harley talk's about there long racing history but for years now have farmed out development to Vance and Hines (no knock on V&H) but one would think they would want to do that in house! But I guess the writing was on the wall when Then C.E.O. Wandell was with the company he was quoted as saying we don't want to be in the adrenaline market ,when he was asked about Buell and sport bikes in general.
