When Oldenburg went down there was 3/4 of a brick in that left hander before they crossed the start straight. Just need some lumber and a little rebar to build a house there. Nice dirt. Wonder what else was out there?

Yep, especially when it seems like most of the dirt used for SX had to have been dug up from a major metropolitan area at some point.

But damn, can you imagine that coming at you warp speed off the back of a 450!? F THAT !!

That was my thought. I've taken some rocks to various spots before that hurt. A brick to the chest could kill you. Or a piece of rebar through a goggle lens.

We raced an AMA Arenacross series race in New Haven Conn one year. They asked us to go out and remove all the rocks we could from the track. It looked more like gravel than dirt and many of the pit crew people were out there picking up rocks about 1" in diameter and throwing them off the track. I installed hand guards for that race for my rider.

I have a couple private tracks of my own, and picking rocks was often the price of entry. And me and my boy spent many fine sessions after our ride day walking the track, checking out our lines, and picking rocks. At my current track a piece of a farm implement will come up on occasion. I can usually hear them when I hit em with the tiller, so I stop and remove them right away. My dirt always has had something in it somewhere. But not bricks. wink

It's Indianapolis motorsports. Bricks are required.

Lol, that will make the courses more exciting.

That’s not a brick, that’s a “paver”. grin That’s the future of Supercross tracks!

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

Over the years, one of my favorite things to do in between motos and after my final moto of the day, is walk track & pick rocks...And look for better lines...

I wonder what Thomas Do (773) hit before pulling off the track with a flat.

|

2/3/2021 8:44 PM

Seriously, this shit show is why sx will never be as big as nascar.

Pavers, cutting races a lap short on accident, screwing privateers out of their chance in a main.. weak as hell..

|

2/3/2021 8:44 PM

Oh, let's not forget 40 second freakin lap times..

Not abnormal. I've seen rebar sticking out of a lip of a rhythm section at Daytona, car parts from monster jam shows in the regular stadiums, and bricks and concrete are pretty common. In Toronto 2016 a concrete block the size of a small cooler in the rollers the guys were jumping into off of the big single flated my riders rear tire and cost us 2nd place....

That poor guy, when he flipped over the tough block trying to get off the track. Talk about insult to injury. He was hauling that race, such a bummer.

Man, I'm a wuss. I gripe when my track isn't covered in rose petals and watered with champagne. I don't even like rocks in the dirt. Chocolate cake every time is my desire.

The last (and only) time I hit a concrete block on a track I broke my femur. So there's some history there....

And, as is tradition in Indianapolis Motorsports, Oldenburg looks like he is about to "kiss the brick!" after winning... oh, wait.

So there's someone trying to improve the challenges on the track.
