I'm pretty sure all of the oil pan drain plugs were plastic that year. At least the one on my 80 was.

Rumors aren’t signed contracts. Maybe Supercross Live was plan b, in case the NBC deal fell through.

Weege's thoughts from this weeks Racerhead: "I have to wonder if the timing of this deal might have impacted the TV time—it’s pretty darned late to put a 17-week schedule together, and NBCSN probably had stuff in the place of some of the supercross time ... more »

Or maybe, the SupercrossLive deal was already in place, and instead of screwing people out of their $119, Feld/NBC decided to go US only for the Gold app this year, and next year open it up world wide. But I guess that doesn't fit with the greedy corporate ... more »

Caught me by surprise, too. I was enjoying watching him rip, and forgot about the crash for a second. Glad to hear it was "only" a compressed vertebra and fractured wrist, and not something worse. He should have plenty of time to heal up and come out ... more »

I really like the solid black front number plate. That looks pretty smooth.

They don't come much smoother than Cinq. Dude could ride the hell out of a motorcycle.

There's a lot of ignorant posts in this thread by people who don't normally post like that.

This was shot with US government equipment (i.e. taxpayer funded), so it's considered public domain. Not the same thing as the photo the OP is based off of.

So if you don’t like Brand Ambassador, what would you call a guy who represents a brand in public?

It’s a job title for guys who do exactly what your second sentence says. Why does it bother you?

That was way too cool. I'd never even heard of this race, much less seen video of it. Thanks for posting. Was that Tripes on the Honda doing wheelies on the flat track behind Hannah?

This is how I see it as well. But, I also think Hyler is correct that on the right night, on the right track, and with a good start, he could podium (I'm not quite ready to call him for a win just yet).

They definitely didn't stop paying him. I seem to remember a video from Transworld or Racer X that showed the Rolls Royce they leased for him. I completely forgot about the towel over the Monster logo, though. That was pretty funny.

So does that mean they'll haul a lot of the sand out of Assen next year? Because the home team has a definite advantage there. My guess would be no, they won't.

"...but I'm curious to know who had the power to set up the Red Bud track this year." This is the part I'm curious about as well. Why was the decision made (and who made it) to make the track more "European" at des Nations, but they don't/didn't haul ... more »

So, you want them to promote Supercross as a professional motorsport by putting the inexperienced announcer on a bike to show how hard it is? That makes perfect sense (no it doesn't)...
