Just curious but does anyone know if Stankdog is going to be
running the 125 at the nationals this year? I could totally
see him just doing the special 125 races but his Vurbmoto videos
from Tom Journet a few years ago were epic! cool

I sure hope he does! My wife is always complaining I wear my 2-Stankin T-shirt too often but it's one of my favorites!
I'll buy more if it helps him get to the races on a 125.

it's like asking a PGA tour Professional to show up and use equipment from the 80's

Entertaining yes, if you like watching someone beat their head against a wall.

I hope he shows up on a competitive four stroke, gets results, and potentially gets a better paying ride out of the deal.

And I also have my girl on me for wearing my Stankdog shirt too often.

I'd like to see him give it a go on the 250sx. He'd at least be a little more competitive compared to the 125.

Either way I'm a fan.

You obviously golf, is there really that big of a difference between the new clubs, balls, and the older stuff? I could see it in the balls and maybe the woods/drivers but isn't a nine iron a nine iron?

And stank dog should rip a 250, I would think there more of a horsepower gap between a 125 / 250 than a hopped up 250 / 450 maybe I'm wrong...

a 9 iron is as much of a 9 iron from 20 years ago... as a shock is the same as a shock from 20 years ago...

The message posted above is most likely my opinion and shouldn't be taken as fact....

Stankdog gets free bikes, doesn’t matter the stroke!

Better question: If Arenacross is actually folding, as seems to be public knowledge, will Stankdog try to pursue SX next season?? Wonder if the Babbitt's team has any intention of putting together a 250 effort for next year..

Reed pays, stankdog free. Lol. Makes sense. . If stankdog was paying, bet it would be a 4 stroke.

If I knew I was going to get beat pretty bad, it might as well be on a lesser machine. That way I'd have a better excuse.

How many people would know who "Stank Dog" was if it wasn't for his 125 exploits? I know some follow Arenacross where he's had success, but doubt he would have as much of a following if it wasn't for his 125 rides

People need to give up on the whole 2 stroke thing. For gods sake no one is going to race one unless it's for fun or a one off thing.

Cracks me up when the hushed announcer says

"... about 205 to the flag .... looks like a 6iron from here ..."

Shit my 6'll go 160 if I'm lucky 168 if I flush it!

Heard they (Babbitt's) will be going to GNCC instead.

Yeah, I don’t buy into Reed paying for bikes.... I know plenty of privateers getting free bikes (none on huskys though) and even a few junior riders that are fast as hell and will be pro in the future getting free bikes.

Look at all his Husky's.... Not a single Husqvarna logo anywhere. There's a reason for that...

Race bike officially ready to rip?? @thereal_goose crushed it

Well he outta just try and score an Alta and race in Canada's pro series this summer. Then he'll have a leg up on everyone here next year when the Japanese roll out their electric MX bikes and the sport drops the IC bikes.

Funny how some people on here get their panties in such a wad over others liking 2-strokes in pro racing. The cc limits are a joke and seeing a guy out there obviously down on power but still giving it a go and having a good time is awesome. It’s awesome because it displays how idiotic the cc rules are, it sounds awesome and he embodies the idea that there’s more to racing motocross than just race results. You can get 18th and nobody knows you’re there or you can get 24th and have thousands of people cheering you on each lap. Which would you choose and which would make you more marketable?

How many guys around Stankdog’s skill/speed are making a better living than him outdoors? How many guys have gotten top 20 outdoors yet still found themselves broke and without a ride next season?

The dude isn't making more than California minimum wage finishing 20th on a 125.

Okay and how many guys finishing 20-30th place outdoors are?

Well said Chance! I feel the same way! I must have watched his Motosport outdoor series videos a few times each. Cool dude and good for the sport.

Billy....haha , that really isn't how a business tax write off works. Sort of though. Bottom line is....a shop could have given him bikes , although I haven't seen any retailers listed any where on any of his stuff. But.....with what it takes to do the whole series , with what he has.....the bikes are a drop in the bucket. Sure a lot of those hop-up parts are given to him.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
