Hi Mr. Info, sorry, I was busy being a dad. Hope you are well. Good luck with the 2-Stroke event this weekend. DC Racer X

I wish I could snap my fingers and make this better, Jordan, but it doesn't actually work that way. There are a lot of variables to put into place. Over the course of four months we need to fit in 12 races. As you know, almost all of the race teams are ... more »

I agree with you, I don't get to listen often, let alone to all of them, but this week's debate between DV12 and Rutledge was both hilarious and painful, and the DV12 and RC "GOAT" conversation was hilarious, and how can you not like Hunter Lawrence? ... more »

All of the social media on that event looked absolutely epic. Going to try to stick around next year after Daytona and participate in the fun! DC Racer X

Not mine, but he died for his own I'm sure... That and his hubris and relentless ambition. Like I said, our patron saint of lost causes and very bad ideas... I think that's why I was fascinated by his ultimate demise. DC Racer X

We had some discussions with them after they announced the NASCAR dirt track was going to be on for 2021. The building would be more appropriate though for a supercross race, as it's just like a NFL field, only bigger. It will be cool to see how the ... more »

Haha, this hangs in my house--a "Custer's Last Stand" print that Anheuser-Busch gave out to bars that they supplied beer to. Every time I see The Royal Tenenbaums I think of Eli Cash's book! When I was a kid I was fascinated by General Custer, America's

It wasn't just you, I think they had a lot of issues out of the gate and with the remote location of Big Buck, and I promise you they are already working on making fixes and changes for the next show. DC Racer X

Added reply in a thread What do you think about awarding Overall points via qualifiers? 2/20/2021 9:36 AM

Good points. And I went back and looked and they were rewarding three points for a heat win from at least 1980 to 1985 when they went to a two-10-lap mains format. That didn't work out either and it was scrapped after one year. The first race of 1986--the ... more »

Tried that at the 1985 Rodil Cup at the Los Angeles Coliseum. It led to many top riders sand-bagging the heat races to start in the front row. It infuriated Ricky Johnson, who went to the microphone and berated the other riders over the PA system! Watch ... more »

Tim, they tried this in 1985 and ended up scrapping it after four rounds, then they had to completely redo the points! Here's Cycle News from that February, following the third and fourth rounds at Seattle.

I think cutting down the costs of moving dirt in and out of 17 different stadiums, down to five or six, and also not having to move the whole production 17 different times helps, and also probably helps limit COVID exposure. But the severe limits in ... more »

Good one Reese! And I got your email about when the change happened that riders no longer had to re-enter the course where they went off and I am researching it for you. I think it happened due to track configurations in SX that make it almost impossible ... more »

Yes, I agree, and I didn't realize that Lawrence technically was still in the race, he just didn't start it, so he is credited with dead last, but still earned that single point. No one was displaced after all... Also, Matthes did a "Privateer Island" ... more »

Turns out every other rider in the race except for Colt Nichols got the white flag--the flagman made a mistake and missed giving it to Nichols (he was apparently looking at his stopwatch and Colt came by with maybe four seconds before the 15-minute mark) ... more »
