So Christian Craig gets injured, Brandon Leith DNF’s in the 1st moto, but yet they decided to let 2 other riders race the 2nd moto ?? How long has this been going on ?

This is a thing that the series organizers have played with before. If those who qualified in the fast 40 don't line up for one of the motos there is a ranked list of "alternates" for any open spots. It hasn't been used for quite a while, but they used to do it a lot back around 2007-ish.

For example:

Interesting ! This is the first time I’ve ever heard of it, and I’ve been following this sport since ‘77. Thanks for the link...
I guess I was kinda bummed that I picked Leith for my fantasy team. Lol
