What. No props to Jason Lawrence?
He rode an amazing race. 1st time on the 450's on the toughest track of the year.
I don't know if it was the track he was comfortable with or was it the bigger bike.
My Tivo cut off when Reed crossed the stripe so I missed the post race interview.
Was he his normal "I'm the best rider in the world" attitude or did he finally show some humility?
I gotta credit Reed as well. He's been practically flawless this year. That dude does not make a mistake. Way to reel in Lawrence who had all but checked out.
I'm not sure if you can pin Stewarts crash on a mistake by him. That was a narrow start/finish stretch. It looked like too many bikes vying for the same space. I wouldn't say he beat himself
again. The only thing I can say is he should have gotten a better start so he wouldn't been inside the pack.

You know, I have it Tvod too, but I stopped recording after the race winner crossed the line. So I would be interested to know what Lookatmelawrence said too.

Congrats to Reed, again, he can't help but say good to him for not making any mistakes. He understand that he is the second fastest guy in the series, so it looks like he has reluctantly accepted this and approached the season on consistency. And he's accomplishing it. Its not like read is slow; he's just not as fast as James. I still think Bubba will win, but its his to lose, and if he keeps making mistakes, well he will lose it. The last two times Reed has won the title, I one that said, well it was by default, no Ricky then no Bubba. But this time is different. Reed knows that if James does NOT make a mistake he will win. So Reeds game plan is be 2nd all the time, and win when James makes a mistake. Well so far itís working. One more mistake by James and it may be too much. If Reed accomplishes this, then he will have won the title fair and square. We all know James is the fastest, but you gotta keep it on two wheels.

Ok, Lawrence, he's a jerk off. But he is fast. I was impressed with him, though I find myself rooting for Reed (who I usually do NOT root for) because having a win by Lawrence was unthinkable to me. That all this bastard needs, a win at Daytona to make his head larger than the Pacific Rim.

Other notables: Villapoto will win a race some day. Also, sucks for Josh Grant. I think he is the 4th fastest guy out there. Oh, and Brock, stop crashing already. Alessi, he starts off fast then fades, is it conditioning or his head is still screwed up?

Villopoto will make some noise in the outdoor series I think. I'm really looking foward to the outdoor season to kick off.
I think Alessi's problem is all in his head. He will be looking foward to the outdoor season as well, and should battle with Villopoto. Those two always have some good racing battles.

On JLaw, if I remember correctly I watched his post race interview and thought he was a little smug at first, but backed it down a notch to say he was just glad to finish as well as he did. Like you Jumkie I was rooting for Reed to catch him, I didn't want to see a Lites guy with a huge ego win at Daytona.

yes as L8 sez larwrence actually showed a little humility. as a confessed reed fan he seemed to have no issue with giving props to reed... but you could see the wanker in him bubbling to the top. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

Not much to say about the New Orleans race other than Kevin Windham had a really cool helmet.

Yea after the first two laps it was a snoozer. Bubba is just too fast, even when the dude made a mistake he still cleared the triple, just awesome to watch. As we say in BMX "East Coast Pull!" There must be something in the Florida water.

Stewart is too fast for his own good. I have been a detractor of Reed, stooping to say his titles were gifted because James and Ricky were hurt, but now I'm seeing the error of my ways. Reed's post race interview from St. Louis went a long way for gaining my respect (besides his great victory). Reed said you have to ride your race and he conceded that "the fastest guy doesn't always win." Wow, now that takes guts to concede. He admits James is faster, but also makes the point that finishing in first is more important. Kudos to him.

Congrats to Reed for a great victory. If he wins this championship, he will have BEAT James fair and square and straight up!


Bummer about Pastrana. (I don't want to talk about it, but did you see his face, is he aging twice as fast as the rest of the human specie?)

Yea, Bubba rubber side down is impossible to beat, when he's crashing, it's anybody's game. If Reed takes the title this year, I agree that he's earned it.
Jumkie, Pastrana looked a lot hevier than I've seen him in the past, I'm thinking that has a lot to do with his look. Dude hasn't excactly lived the quiet life either.

That's because his flame is burning so much brighter than the rest of us..
Guys like him are a wonder of mankind. I just hope he's able to grow old with the rest of us.

Your right about Reed. He's learned that RC never really had to beat Stewart 1 on 1. You just have to outlast him. If Reed wins the championship this year I will be very happy for him. He's riding a virtually flawless season.I've been laughing at him in the past when he comes in 2nd and is pissed off.
Why should he be pissed off when he knows that he is 2nd best.
Now I see it's that will and determination that he still believes that he can beat Stewart that might just bring home a championship.

They didn't say shit about Villopoto so I found online that he didn't race because of a viral infection.
He was sick a few weeks ago as well so I wonder if somethings wrong with him or he's just gotten sick twice.
