Harry, next time I'm down (week after Loretta Lynn's) let's definitely get together for a couple beverages and some bench racing. And I was really impressed with the place, as well as Junior as his family. It's going to be a heck of a race! DC Racer ... more »

edgo897 I really don't see that happening and it sucks for motocross in general to see a track that old and that has hosted so many big races possibly done forever... The two sides were extremely far apart and it will take a lot of time and work to fix ... more »

Gang, this is not on Youthstream, or Wyn, or MX Sports or anyone directly involved in moto. This was a real estate lease problem and an unreasonable rise in terms that came as a direct result of the scheduling on this race. The terms went through the ... more »

The day before the crash I was standing at the fence along one of the long straights and Bruce Bunch came flying off it on his 105cc R&D Racing Suzuki super-mini, wide open in the air, and the bike was popping like a .22 bap-bap-bap! It was maybe ... more »

Auntie May, I never said Thad cheated and I feel bad for both him and Chris. They were pointed to a shortcut that was out of bounds by whoever that fan was and they took it. The AMA had to make a decision and they decided to dock each one spot, which ... more »

Reply to Why are There Towel Waving People Right by the Track? 7/9/2017 11:23 AM

We are asking the team member with track passes to stop waving towels. It's confusing, especially when the towels are yellow like a team gave out yesterday. It was a small thing a couple seasons back but it's turned into a spectacle and we're trying ... more »

Reply to Track prep...no excuses 7/2/2017 12:48 PM

We have about ten minutes between the motos to work on the track most of the time. There's not a lot you can do, so you do it before the bike get out on the track. "Given the number of riders complaining almost each week, I'd like to know if anyone is ... more »
