He looked really, really good. It was pretty damn cool to see him out there railing.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

Agreed, there should be a 2 year or so gap between winning purse money and racing for a national am championship.

It's already just about 2 seasons (season before and current season). It only includes AMA Nationals, SX, and GPs, though.

It should be 5 years from last points scored, so you could technically qualify for a National but if you finish 35th it wouldn't count. 5 years for a "regular" National point scorer, 7-10 for former Champions.

It's been done before yes but the rules changed this year. If a B rider comes up to race a pro national he'll be force to move up to the A class no matter the result he achieves. Previously a B rider could come race a national and stay in the B class.

At Deschambault 2 weeks ago B rider Tanner Ward went 2-2 for 2nd overall. I can see him being moved up to A class but if a B rider doesn't score any points or doesn't achieve a top 20 result I don't see why he couldn't stay in the B class.

Either way the rule change has forced some B riders to delay their pro debut in order to keep their B class eligibility for Loretta's.

There's a big difference between Winning a National Pro title then going back and winning an Amateur title and then returning to race a Pro race.

Cooper is working his way up not "Working the System"

There are two classes those guys can't race in.

No need for a rule change.

Brown raced a class that is only limited by age, not skill.

Its a national championship for the fastest 40+ year old rider, pro or not. Don't want to race against pros, than go find a skill-based class.

pretty simple really.

That was 16 yrs ago...You make it sound like Brown did something wrong....Now if he would have raced in the 30+ or 45+ then you would be correct...If you don't want to race against those guys there are two classes for you to race in without them....but then again if you don't like Brown racing those classes then you should also work on getting John Grewe tossed out because nobody wants to get smoked by a 51yr old...
