Maybe get security posted up at each rig?

In all seriousness though, I hope he can do something with it and move forward. Don't want to see any of the guys caught up in the bad stuff

Is there really nobody else out there deserving of this ride?

Is this team ran by family or something also like Geico? If so, then I get it.

I'm pretty sure that KTM is just pitting with them. 3D Racing is a Yamaha team. The 144 KTM is Nicolas Rolando and it looks like he's originally/from Uruguay .

The team is a family run operation. The main guy behind it is Bill Dill and he raced back in the day. The team is based out east from Massachusetts.

I'm not sure if many people know this but 3D Racing has been racing since the early 2000's. Now I don't know if they've been racing consistently over all these years or not but they've definitely been a team for close to 20 years. To my knowledge they've always been on Yamaha's and as far as the graphics goes they've always had the eagle and that color scheme. Sure the graphics and bikes are not appealing but concerning the eagle on the bike its been there since the teams inception so I'm assuming that it has to have some personal meaning to them. If not why not switch things up?

They might not be the best looking bikes in the pits but they stand out and they got you talking about them.

Back in 2002 Jason Thomas/JT$ rode for the team. In fact here's a couple pictures.

LOL I get what you're saying. Technically yes there's another bike under the tent but I don't think he's part of the team. I know that Jason Brooks rode for them last year and it doesn't appear like he's riding for them this year. I saw that he plans to be at select rounds of the Canadian nationals once the series heads east. He could very well still be part of the team I don't know but I doubt that once our series heads east he'll want to race the US nationals on Saturday followed by a long drive after the races to race in Canada on Sunday morning. It's been done but not many people do it. I think Chisholm, Kiniry and Goerke have done it before.

Be sure to lock your quad to the back of your subaru. Just in case.

Kinda cool they have stuck to their colors all these years. Also, that's the same rig with an extra stripe on it now.

When I saw the rig in the first pic I assumed it was the same one I posted. If it's the same rig after all those year it's in great shape and perhaps doesn't have all that many miles on it but my guess is that it's a newer one with the same paint/graphic schemes.

After all the bikes have look the same for 15+ years might as well keep the theme going with the rig.

New or old their pit setup isn't all that bad for a privateer team.

So did anyone find out if it's a 1 rider team? Personally I hope they have at least 1 other rider. I wouldn't drive my rig cross country and put all my eggs in one basket with Nico as the only rider. It's hard to justify any investment but that one is pretty easy to figure out.

Does he finish either/both motos? And if he does, can he crack the top 20?

He has the talent but does he have the will to do it at 100% only he knows. No disrespect but I just hope he's not out there simply to feed his habits because "That's all he knows". If that's the case step away from the sport, get your shit together once and for all and focus on being a dad. There's plenty of other guys that would love to have an opportunity like he's been given once again.

He's got a following and a Name so is it a marketing ploy for the team? Maybe, maybe not.

Either way here's to a great season.
