    Every race I've been to has been packed, but if they continue to make it hard to follow on TV, that may drop off. With all the reality crap on TV, you can't tell me that they can't find enough people willing to buy add spots to make the races more viewer friendly.

    You're right. I think tv viewers helps bring the crowds to the races though.

    Nascar on the other hand, I think they're killing track attendance with ridiculous ticket prices. Last time I went to the Daytona 500 they forced you to buy tickets to races you don't want to watch. I did it for 10 years straight and had good luck selling the tickets I didn't want, but it was a pain in the ass and if I didn't sell the extra tickets I was out hundreds of dollars per person. That adds up quick when you're going with other people. They're also jumping from channel to channel now too though, just not as bad as motorcross. If the tickets to the races are affordable, more people will stay interested in the races they can't see in person.

    Took some effort to see all the races, but I seen them..lol

    Pretty good racing, some bad luck for moosecan. I thought Roczen was gonna get the over all, but Eli made a pass for second place with just a few laps to go and got the over all and tied for the points lead.

    A lot of action in the 250's too.

    They finally had a decent highlight reel for High Point. Race 2 and 3 had piss poor coverage.

    I did see Webb pull off a legit superman right before his crash...

    That was a scary ride for sure..lol

    There was another memorable moment for me, although I forget who it was lol. I think it might have been Cianciarulo that did a version of the Bubba Scrub?

    Instead of coming in and laying the bike over, he kind of drifted into it. He was spinning the rear tire and drifting sideways going up the face of a big jump in order to keep the bike low.

    Imagine the millions of things that could go wrong using that technique..lol Kids got some skills and some balls.

    It reminded me of the first time they showed Bubba almost dragging a grip going up the face of a huge jump.

    Slow mo Bubba Scrub is pretty amazing.

    I only caught the second 450.

    You know what is really cool, when they go to commercial and Moosecan passes Anderson then they go to another commercial and Osborne passes Anderson, Then they don't say anything about it or show how it happened! I love that!

    Good race though.

    Kid said a few riders went to the hospital after for heat exhaustion.

    I found myself hitting the fast forward button a lot. I wasn't impressed with the track...too flat. Didn't look like it was viewer friendly.
