Supercross I was at Indy!

Recommended Posts

Well, i just got back from a good weekend for sx. Guess who won, Chad Reed. I know its crazy Bubba crashed twice. It was an awesome race while J-Law sat out from a "sick" stomach (or a hangover:smirk: ). Austin stroupe rounded out the 250f's with the win. Overall, awesome race:thumbsup:

man i was there too! i cant beleive a supercross race made a highest record for attendance in the new stadium! bu anyways back to sx, when js went down the second time i was one of the 61,000+ people on my feet jumping and yelling "go reed". if i would have paid a hundred bucks a ticket i still would have been happy after that show! what a night that race was the best of all this year, did you notice how that dragon back was just a bit much for the lites guys at first?

Chad Reed for President

I was there too. I think that was the best race of the season. Stewart was a lot faster then Reed while he was chasing him down but Reed stayed with him after JS got in front. That was a battle!!!! You might want to throw SPOILER in your title MXkid 12. So everyone knows that it tells the race ourcome.

Why don't you stay out of the Supercross/Motocross/Arenacross forum until after the race? Do you not think people are going to discuss the Indy SX with a thread title 'I was at Indy'?.... :lol:

Look at the title of this posting...."I was at Indy". Did you think that maybe the posting might have a result listed? If I did not know who won and was all set to watch it later today...I would stay away from this thread. It's not like he announced the winner in the thread title, ya know.

Anyway...I was there, too. Great race. Awesome facility. Great and enthusiastic crowd. A great night of racing all the way around.

No shit. What do they think is going to be talked about in the SX forum on a thread labeled "I was at Indy" on the day of the race? How much the programs were? A food review?

People need to whine and bitch about something and will find it. Drama Queens!

I am a RV fan and noticed that he was off the pace more than usual last night. Did he crash or have an off night?

RV finished a strong 3rd to Alessi in his heat race, but was way back around 16th a few laps into the main. There was so much happening up front, however, that I rarely looked back thru the field to see where guys were if they were out of the top5.

Leave the computer alone if you don't want the results. Find something worthy to do.

Great race!

I was there too and wonder if anyone seen the FMX crash.

Kinda creepy the way that thing was handled.

Yeah they finished off the exhibition with a 2 backflip trains. They did the first one perfect and did one more for the crowd to end the night. The last rider wiped out pretty bad. He was evidently in alot of pain due to his movements lying in the dirt. The stadium camera then panned over to Bartram as he took off his helmet and proceeded to give an interview with the announcer and acted like it was no big deal. While Cowboy Kenny gave the interview the FMX crew scraped up the rider and dragged the ramps away to get ready for the main events. I didn't have the greatest view seeing that I was sitting in the lower bowl in front of the finish line jump, But I still have the image of that rider burned in my head and I'm thinking it was not good.

      Hi Guys ,
      I'm in Australia and i am going to stream RBSR online , Red Bull site says start is 11:30 AEST ( Australian eastern standard time ) on the 20th Saturday
      which i don't think is correct . if it is on the 20th of Oct in the U.S at 1:30pm (racing must be about 4-5 pm) start on Saturday and Australia being 17 hours ahead wouldn't that make it a Sunday the 21st broadcast ?

      Growing up, seeing motovans at the track was possibly one of the coolest things.. while I was sleeping in my singlecab pickup. But hey, at the time, in highschool, my truck was cooler than some van. Now at this "age" 24... a van is quite a dang good idea, so I started looking. After a few facebook pots, a buddy of mine knew someone who had a 2001 E350 Passenger van sitting, and would get me a price. he told me it needed a radiator, and the spark plug blew out of cylinder 4 (common 5.4 triton issue). A few days go by, and he calls saying I can have it for FREE! they just needed it gone! So, I go out there with a friend of mine who has a 30ft gooseneck, and some starting fluid to make sure I don't get in too deep... we cant get it to fire without starting fluid, and ruled it out to a fuel pump. We pull the van on the trailer, stop by the parts store, and are headed home.


      The van was sitting stationary for 4 years... and smelled like it. but we'll get back there.. We dropped the tank, having to cut one of the tank straps and emptied the 4 year old fuel, put a new fuel pump in it, about 5 gallons of premium race fuel (fast and furious), and she fired up.  Next was the spark plug issue, I tapped the threads, and installed a helicoil along with new plug and coil pack, and we were good. Later I replaced the radiator after flushing the coolant system.

      The next day, we pulled out everything behind the first row bench seats, to include the headliner, rear AC duct, and side panels. Had to cut out the old seat belt mounts, and reinstalled the last bench where the first bench originally resided, since it was longer, but a few inches back to have optimal leg room. Then came the wall install... after lots of measuring once and cutting twice... I got it all figured out, and had the wall installed, then yellow stuffed "expanding foam" around all sides to ensure I wouldn't have fuel fumes in the cab. Finally I installed some flooring, just to give the bare metal some protection.
       
      After that, I was king of burned out on the van, before I even used it. She sat in my driveway for months before I was ticketed for having an unregistered vehicle parked outside.. gotta love florida.. I posted it forsale for a few days, then decided I would getRdone.

      So, off to the DMV, registered, and custom plates reading "MOTOVAN". Picked up a heavy duty cargo lock, fuel treatment, tons of black ice "little trees", and some R-134 to recharge the AC. She was making her first trip to the track that weekend!

      We changed the oil, 1,000 miles and 3 years overdue... only 2qts came out.. and sea foamed the green monster. After driving all over town, I parked in the driveway for a second, only to try to move it, and nothing on start up... not even after a jump.. so back to the parts store for a starter. After one of the worst starter jobs ever, she was cranking again. I figured we were problem free... but not before a brake line failed, and had to replace that guy, in order to take her to the track in 2 days!

      Finally! we were all clear, and we loaded three bikes into the van, and we were off! Two bikes is preferred.. but three worked, juts had to put most of the gear in the cab. Was a great day of riding, before a buddy crashed and ended the day with a concussion and a few compressed vertebrae..

      The van made another trip out this past weekend, and developed a new misfire, that ill be taking care of this week, and rechargeing the whole AC system since ill be sleeping in it this weekend for my first race in years!

      I will add some photos off my phone in a bit, until then, here is my youtube channel I created for the motovan!

      2019 Supercross season is near. Your "flavor fave" just took the MEC after being waved bye for the win.
      Same bet as last year..... $100 max customized jersey of your choice. First come first serve, but your ass BETTER pay up as others have to Mongo.
      I'm only taking the first "real" bet that approves my wager.... Tomac vs. the field 2019 SUPERCROSS. . He wins, you win. He looses, I win...... Who is the first taker? Anybody have the testicular fortitude? 
    • By Mongo134
      A friend of mine, BAHA, you know him, had a very good point I never thought of. All of these big $$ race purses are insured. Monster pays on insurance a percentage and should someone win the MEC as they did last night, the insurance company pays it out. 
      Now.... Had Savatgy just FUBAR'd in the sand like he should have to make the pass convincing that would be one thing. But since he was seen looking back several times to see where Tomac was at, caught slowing on camera on the backside of the track AND caught waving Tomac by to take the win.... I'm interested to see if insurance pays out or calls it a form of Insurance Fraud? 
    • By 150dirtcomber
      I could be late but in the post race interview Tomac strongly hinted he will race the GPs at some point in his career. Maybe the incentive will pass but he sounded serious about it.
