Thats one of the worse ones ive seen

If I'm healthy enough to complain. I shouldn't be complaining.

How convenient...

Why did Sexton not jump the double after the finish. He would have still been right on ET. He gave up

Looks like he OJed the finish and landed right into some ruts

He’s had a tough year, bet he was thinking seconds sounds better than another injury

His line on the double he didn’t hit looked smooth on the face and he barely got any head shake from the landing. After not jumping that and then the camera switched and I coulda swore he had a mechanical he was going so slow. It was weird

Fucken infuriating to have an epic final lap ruined by squids once again.

It shouldn’t matter who it is or what his intentions were, if you affect the lead riders, a punishment should be handed out. Something has to happen to encourage lapped riders to at least fucken pay attention to the lead riders. If anything, for the mental well being of the lapped rider, I’m sure Cade is copping it immensely in all forms of social media.

You don’t see this causing issues in other Motorsports.

One way, limited pit-to-rider communications have got to happen sooner than later. Either a light on the handlebars with a LED indicating a flag color, or one way comms from the managers tower so we can atleast try to get rid of these blue flag issues.

The flaggers on track obviously arent doing their jobs. In the same frame of Cade clason slowing down chase, you can see a flagger standing there, with his arms crossed like he’s ready to go home already.

Just some suggestions,

I don't see it being directly the fault of the lapper, there were two other participants that contributed to the issue. The flagger and Sexton himself.

|

I think this was on Sexton more than some of the other incidents, he closed really fast on Clason and just ran into him after following him into the same line, Cade got out of the way at the first opportunity,

|

4/10/2021 10:56 PM

I saw a Sexton meltdown more than a lapped rider getting in the way

|

4/10/2021 10:56 PM

I loved that Sexton said nothing about lapped traffic in his podium interview. Maybe Kenny can learn something from Chase.

Do you guys think there’s a possibility he thought it was the last lap? Im trying to be the devils advocate here because I can’t understand how you go inside, not jump that important double etc... If he thought it was the last lap, itwould explain his inside, his non jump of the double before the finish and his non jump on the double after the finish... Maybe I’m digging too much into a simple brain & a very costly inside line...

If the LED was orange and it was Cristian Craig getting lapped it could send the fucker into hyperventilation

I read on a different thread that Sexton says, in the post race press conference, he thought the race was over. I didn’t hear it myself, but maybe that is exactly why he dropped off so much.

Those squids as you call them are making main events and could ride circles around you. No one is perfect.

Agree. Sexton closed fast, not in control, and damn near jumped into Clason. Then he panicked cause he knew Tomac was closing and squidded out for a bit till Clason could get out of the way. Clason didn't know which way to move to make room.

Hammer

Yup

And as Len and a few others were comenting on...Sexton COMPLETELY F'd up the Finish Line Jump and "flat-landed" the landing so F'n bad that he had to regroup as he hit the next jump...that's what I saw.

About Classon: When he realized what was going on...? He got the hell out of the way. In-fact, he got out of the way "TOO MUCH"! If Chase and Eli are closing in on lapped trafiic so damn fast...well, then HOW THE HELL DO THEY GET CAUGHT FOLLOLWING THAT TRAFFIC?!?!

Oh, wait, Eli...the Veteran...DIDN'T. grin

That is -EXACTLY- what happened.

I dig Chase. He'll learn to not let these things happen as he goins more experience in "The Bigs". This is just a hiccup.

Out here in the fields, I fight for my meals. I get my back into my living. I don't need to fight, to prove I'm right. I don't need to be forgiven.

I was thinking the same thing. Ultimately, Chase learned a lot in yesterday's race and will come back all the better because of it.

Sexton took responsibility....it does sux to watch 3 hrs of racing, anticipating that last lap bar banger...and have that happen.

|

4/11/2021 9:30 AM

IDK if Chase would be able to hold Eli off for another lap regardless of lappers, BUT... just wtf. Its so annoying as a fan of the sport to have so many races ruined by lappers. I know many here just blames Chase or says Clason just held his line or whatever, but I dont understand why the lappers themselves want to risk being in the way. If youre already in last place, is it really smart to risk ruin the ACTUAL race in front for a second here and there? Lets be real here, how many fans did Cade Clason make by doing this? not that many. How many did he potentially loose? Lots, if you ask me.

Agreed, and to be honest I don't think Cade did anything intentional at all - certainly nothing like Wilson did. Sexton just came up on him so fast, it took him by surprise. Hell, once Cade realized what was going on, he B-lined it off the track to get out of the damn way. Like it or not, lappers are part of the race. If a lapper is intentionally trying to hold up a leader that's a different issue.

Ya you told him. Because he really thought he could beat those "squids." It's called hyperbole. Literally the worst response to any discussion on racing is "he's faster than you!"

Cade didn’t do anything to cause the change that happened, Sexton himself didn’t bring it up because he’s a real racer and learned from what happened in those two corners. Chase has a long career ahead of himself and he knows that and won’t get hung up on this because in the grand scheme of the championship he didn’t lose anything. It was a learning situation for when he will be in that position and I would assume he gained more knowledge last night then he lost in value.

I’ve since learned he indeed thought the race was over. Still a huge mistake on his part. Makes sense as to why he basically came to a stop.
