Just watched the Volusia replay.  Shayna is married and winning.  JD Beach got a 2nd on the Yamaha MT07 to Brandon Robinson. 

Pretty neat too see the Yamaha run with the Indians.  I didn't expect to see a competitive new engine.

Shana show'd em, announcer was saying social media was telling her she had no talent. She put that to rest. Robinson was on key. They are working on the ATL Nascar track, I don't know where the TT will be there. Hasn't seen anyone racing since 2019, what local news said.

 AFT has kinda lost the plot . The Honda Talon experience is complete nonsense , there are only 6 entries in the production class so far at the OKC mile coming up soon , the singles were on the Springfield program only to be now TBD .

 I'll be there tomorrow.   I think John from Springfield will be there.    I doubt if Dusty will be.

There is a big hole on the track, Got a red flag cause of it. Track looks like crap.

That's cool John, I'm stuck here watching dogs Fri-Sun. I can go for 2hrs at a time. Not enough time to get to Bob"s meet & greet.

Track was bad the first year, better the 2nd year.  At best it's a Mile Short Track, at worse its bad.  Dusty didn't want to go back after the first year.  I'm sorry to hear that it's a crap track with deadly hot heat.  The only place I've been to a race and watched it indoors.   I'll be indoors tomorrow too, unless it gets cancelled.

Anybody out at the races-- Wondering how Trevor Brunner(singles) that crashed is doing?  He was in 1st and got sucked into the rough on the inside then hit hills made by track maintenance, went airborne & hit hard. They hauled him off to hospital. The kid was doing real good too.

Yeah, was watching from home. Soon as I saw Trevor get kicked inside off the racing line I said "he's f****d". Really a hard crash.

Surprising little, nothing, came up on his condition after a quick interweb search this morning. Really surprising, barely a mention of his crash.

I don't do the usual social media stuff so am probably missing out, maybe, on some things.

I am hopeful Trevor makes a full recovery.

Does your schedule indicate the races start at 6:30 local time?   If so, I'll need to leave in an hour

Mees won it again in the supertwins and Shayna Texter was at the back of the pack in the singles.  Pretty good racing overall but I do miss the gnarly old XR 750 Harleys and the smell of burning  castor oil,  it just doesn't smell like a race anymore.

I'm not a huge fan of sitting behind a glass wall with a blaring PA that drowned out the bikes.  The track wasn't half bad but the feature was a runaway with only 11 bikes.  Perhaps the future is Production Twins?

I heard one of the participants say that this was the first race with full fan attendance this season.

The track was in better shape than I expected. The AC seating area was comfortable, but it didn't seem right. Not hearing the bikes was odd to me. I did miss the steak sammiches and Stag beer you get at Springfield  :thumb:
