So it's OK to deliberately ride the wrong way down a track to advance your position?

Just wondering since Reed was clearly traveling in the opposite direction when he crossed the center point of that turn.

James pass was clean...and it was actually a pass. Chads move was a block. Chad didn't have a chance in hell of passing James... he could only hope James would shut 'er down. Total BS move... Shades of Matiasevich. Any time someone pulls that stupid ... more »

PJ went down on the first lap of the main. In heat races he turned the 3rd fastest lap behind Barcia and, believe it or not, Stewart. He was closing on Dean Wilson at the end too.

Interesting theory! I got to do that one year and it was great. One of the best deals Racer X has ever done.

Malcolm surprised me at Houston. He was going good. PJ Larsen really surprised me. He was flat haulin ass but had some bad breaks. If he keeps the rubber side down and doesn't podium it'll surprise me. Hell, the way he looked he can win. D. Durham can ... more »

Don't like 'em but won't ride without one and a Leatt now. I have that same fear of taking a peg to the abdomen or even in the back. BTW- The Thor Sentinel works fine with a Leatt

Added reply in a thread Any chance of a Stewart-Stewart win? 2/14/2011 6:51 PM

I was there and Malcolm surprised the heck out of me. Way faster than anything I had heard about him. BUT... there's a few names in the East that suprised me too, mainly Durham and Larson. They were both very fast but had bad luck in the main.

Exactly true. Saw it from a short distance away.

Added reply in a thread Stewart has changed...really????? 2/13/2011 10:25 AM

Not so true. Only a few riders took that outside line and jumped to the first table. Everyone that took that line went all the way to that table. JT$ did not. I'd bet JS fully expected JT$ to go for the table. He only singled which caused JS to hit him. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Cost of dirt? 1/22/2011 6:36 PM

I believe they use the same dirt every year at each venue. They store it somewhere close to the stadiums. Houston SX dirt is great every year, probably from all of the horse and cow shit in it from the rodeo that's usually right after the SX!!
