I'm in Maine so this is VERY exciting, but I sure hope the weather next year is better than what we've had this year. "Bundle up campers, it's coooold outside..."

Thats great news! Even though New England isn't seen as a "hot bed" for moto, there's enough hardcore fans up here that would easily fill Gillete stadium in my opinion.

Great, another open air stadium. Hope the weathers not lousy.

I agree...I often wonder why any team in the northeast doesn't take a look at the Skydome in Toronto and say "shit, that's a great idea"......

Maybe it will rain and we can get a mud race. Something different then the same thing every weekend.

I was at the foxboro round in 1983 and it was a rainy New England you never know the weather up here.

I originally posted my guess at the schedule here, but when I'm proven wrong I don't want my ego to be deflated.

Get it? It's a Pats joke. I'll be here all week.

Just checked the weather: 4/24/15 in Foxboro right now at 8:58 pm EST it 41 degrees. Not exactly cold but not exactly springlike either.

THERE IS NO SECOND MOTO IN LIFE!

ellis is so under rated..... fyi for anyone in the area...book the hotel now if you want to stay the night and not deal with the log jam after, its pricey but the rooms are nice....I go to most of the pats games and the place sells out every event

Ellis was a great for sure. I'll tell u as a new englander and pats fan - MetLife knows how to get u in and out easily. Just an easier location I think and very friendly helpful staff. True today and true at games.

Yea, but if you try to get home after the race you have to deal with all the NYC traffic and tolls. It took me 2 hours to get from the parking lot through NYC last year.

Yeah I hear that. Luckliy staying at our daughters outside of nyc tonight and hit the big apple tomoorw. And I never had to detour thru Bronx and Harlem before to go to a race. But in and out of stadium just works well. Hopefully next year I get to Nj and Gillette.

Well, this will help ease the loss of the Southwick National for us New Englanders a little bit.

And that is the definition of being ripped off.

We will take something awesome from you and replace with something which is shiny and new and.... Not quite as good as what you used to have.

actually a couple decades ago Northeast was one of the strongest markets in the country and had as much talent as the infamous el cajon zone

|

4/27/2015 12:40 PM

^^^ true

|

4/27/2015 12:41 PM

While maybe not the El Cajon zone, what part of the US had 2 factory riders in a Yamaha ad, dressed as Cowboys?

This decision just let the air out of me as I liked the race being in Jersey.
Does anyone know.........If someone from Boston maybe secretly video taped the race from Jersey so they know what to expect, and how to put on a good show.
Hopefully the weather holds as it can be cold up there that time of year, and the tires could get a little deflated. Keep an eye on the tire guy.
If there is snow, maybe in clutch time on the last lap a snowblower can come out and clean off the finish line so we know who wins.
