I'm glad someone posted up about this.

That had to be the best AMA road race I have seen in a long time.

It should be good tomorrow as well. I'm looking forward to it. Race 1 was great!!!

Truly amazing. The AMA races from mid season last year till now are really starting to shape up and become quite entertaining in my option. It looks like it's going to be quite a battle between Josh and Blake this year. I think race 2 is on at 11:00pm tonight on Speed

Was there, awesome racing and awesome show. I also really enjoyed looking at all the old GP bikes on display. I was smelling premix all weekend. It was great:D

How did tommy Hayden not get a ride this year? He's relegated to riding in supersport as a back up rider for someone injured? Seems nuts to me.

At least he's been showing the other teams the mistake they made passing him over. Hopefully graves Yamaha give him a ride for the rest of the year.

It was nice to see Zemke on the Ducshop Ducati 848 take 2 4th place finishes this weekend and dam near got a podium in race #2!!! It's only the 2nd race of the season and Jake seems to get along well with his 848.
I just didn't like that both super and sport bike became a two bike race for the win....but all in all very exciting.
Good to see the HMC KTM and the Buell running well. Hopefully Pegram or Ferracci will be running the 1199 next year.

I was hoping to see the 1199 at the track but i guess next year. the second race for the supersports class was very good for the ducati. I saw when the 848 got passed in turn 10b and that was a bummer. I thought the duc was gonna get the podium and was very excited but well it was a good try nonetheless.

As I understand it, he was replaced by a rider willing to pay for the seat due to team budget cuts. Had there been no one willing to pay, Yosh/Suz would have fielded one bike. If Graves/YES wants to finish the season with any points standing at all, they will have to find a place for Tommy.
