Just my story here...... I had a Grade 3 concussion that pretty much ended my racing career in Sept. 2004. I was out for 5-6 hours, got a helicopter ride that I don't remember until I was told later, my parents were approached by a chaplin / priest while ... more »
Being down by the riders when they take off for qualifying, that flagger does spark it up a bit. But the riders are collectively staring down a holeshot that doesn't count and the flagger just joins the party. It shouldn't be a free for all into the ... more »

Once you go to modern day stadiums like MetLife Stadium, AT&T Stadium, and the like, Sam Boyd is a farm show compared to those behemoths. As long as the parking area is large like Sam Boyd (to continue their major pit party trend), I'd say move to ... more »

Chances are he'll get more out of AX than in SX if he does win. Better paycheck in AX after a title than just winging it on his own in SX (unless a SX team grabs him up with a better deal).

Thanks for watching! Glad you enjoyed the first episode.
I released the first episode of my newest project I launched yesterday called FOCUS. FOCUS is a motorcycle documentary series putting attention directly on the sport's top athletes, individuals, or events themselves and to dive deeper into the back story ... more »

Chet Burks was the production team putting it all together for FS at Daytona. Check the credits. They haven't done any previous SX rounds this season. Its tough to do 9 rounds in a row with a solid crew and then throw a huge 1 round change up half way. ... more »

True. Plus it was a different production crew than past rounds and seemed pretty limited than usual. So everything was different for that show last week than what we've been used to.

Exposure is one thing but more importantly, guys in the booth should have give a heads up to the director live to focus on Bogle which would have put him on the spot to keep an eye out for the 19. Also, a top guy like Bogle going last to 6th is something ... more »
Andy is good people. Nice work on RDL and best of luck with the new gig!
The races you see on TV should be points paying of some sort (multiple mains / Head to Head / Fast Lap / etc) to give it more meaning and purpose. Simple as that. Having the Race Day Live show qualifying races instead of qualifying laps would be better ... more »

It's not too hard to show the riding action while someone gets interviewed. Helps fill any blank moments the person getting interviewed may have. If there is an awkward pause, they can talk about the footage being showed. The core fans (who mostly watch

I like the Bristol idea. Especially with the new Monster / NASCAR connection. Maybe an option as a new location for Monster Cup??? Close to me but the Linc in Philly would be cool to see there. Big media market.... FedEx Field outside D.C. would be a ... more »
PlayStation Vue with either Fire TV or Apple TV is what I have with no complaints. DVR and FS1/2 and NBCSN. Perfect setup for the SX / MX fan.
Pretty bad on my end. May I suggest live streaming through YouTube?
Does this mean mud races? I'm down with that!
3-3-3 is cleanest and most consistent IMO. I did go 4-5 one time on the far right side but that was after a ton of tries and on the opening lap.
I threw down a 59.3 I think one lap. 4-4-3 in rhythm after whoops helps.
