Damn, I must have something in my eye..... The days before litpro and gopro, racers RACED to qualify, and having announcers tell us so and so turned a 41.0002 lap compared to yahoo's 41.0004.

Isn't this stadium a concrete base? Don't think they normally use plywood on concrete.

Um..... do you believe a lawyer made the decision to spread lime on top of the ground before a monsoon? Sorry, any legal advice on lime gate was reactive, not proactive.

Got one almost identical to that one I think I am going to sell. Also have an older one with the fold down handlebars, but not a hard tail like some of the ones pictured above.

What about what they spend on press hospitality. Caviar and champagne are not cheap. Free massages and all the swag that goes into their packets. Hell, I could probably live good off their limo allowance.
