Any thoughts on Christian Craig's plans for the future? I'm a fan of his and he's got the speed but the guy has just had struggle after struggle the past few years... Will he stay in the 250 class or move up to 450's anytime soon? He filled in on HRC but now that ride is Sexton's, and I can't see Craig getting another 450 factory ride. 450 privateer maybe?

As long as his father-in-law has a decent share of the team and Craig is motivated with decent results, heat wins etc, he'll stay put and if at any time HRC (hopefully not) needs a fill-in he gets the call.

None of my biz but it's a shame, I think in his case his entourage doesn't help him. Too many vidz and that non-ideal family/team relationship dented his 2016 sharpen edge. In other words "a most situation" would've shown the best of him.

Man, I wish he would stay healthy. He's one of those that is just poetic to watch ride.
Sweet skills.

Yes I would agree he needs to focus on racing, work it as a job 100% all in head down ready to win. It's Awesome he has a Great family but work is work how many people bring there family to work or make provisions to bring them to work.

Put him on a good 450 Race day is just that race day and you will see results, all advice from my couch with nothing to back it up of course.

They hinted on a change on the pulp show. Didn’t say exactly what, but it “sounds” like he will probably be moving up.

I agree with this for the most part but lately I'm questioning if he has the speed. yeah, he is amazing to watch and great style but can he blister the track? His smooth style with a dash of his pop's zero effs given send it'ness and he may be unstoppable.

I'm not sure about this but maybe the age and experience holds him back a litlle. Like if you want to be at the front in the 250 class you have to go balls out to compensate with the power of the bike to go to that next level. I'm not saying he is not trying but his style tends to work best not going balls out add that up with age. Its just age and time in the class he has to move up to the 450's he did great when he rode the HRC bike.

I think having him in the spotlight is more important than his results. He still is winning heats etc..... does he have a slight advantage with who he’s married to? Maybe but that’s life. Good for him.

Also. With all the young blood in that race team they need someone mature and seasoned to balance the atmosphere in that truck.

Sounds like he will be out of a Geico 250 ride next year. He needs to be on a 450. It's time and he fits it better.
