I just got home from the race and it was a pretty tense moment while the paramedics were loading him up in the bus. I saw him go down but my view from the nosebleeds didn't do it justice. I just watched the replay on my Tivo and it did look pretty painful but not too serious. Those ribs are going to hurt for a while. I was just concerned if he had a neck brace on because the way his bike tumbled it looked like he landed on his head from where I was sitting. I, too, wished he would have pulled off that heat win. With all the crap he has had to put up with over the last couple years, he deserves a comeback.

It looks like one of the riders jumped right over him, when he was on the ground, that looked pretty crazy!

Glad to hear he's ok... I told my dad in the first lites heat race that I felt like someone would go down hard in that section. The guys were FLYING through there and it seemed to be very sketchy for some guys. I thought I was going to be proved wrong until Langston's incident. He was looking great all night up until them.

That wasn't a JS7 type brutal crash but it was close. I was like, oh crap.. he's gonna seat bounce that thing unintentionally!!! And one of the riders DID jump right over him.

Glad he's okay as well. I was telling my buddy about Cool G's story right before that happened.

It's scary to see someone rag doll and it looks like that guy jumped over him. :banana:

I was just about to ask If there was any word on him. He was looking really good in the heat and at the start then when he went down I literally jumped up and clinched my fists. Hope everything is good!

Just watched the race Down-Under.

So bad to see him go down like that. I was looking forward to seing what he could come out with!!!!! That could have turned into an Alessi incident so easily..............

Good to hear he's doing ok!

Glad to hear he's going to be ok - even though he was charging pretty hard in practice - he just seemed a little off - went down a couple times (in practice) - nothing hard like Stroupe's little off over one of the turns with the bike landing on him...

Just a quick note to say thank you to the many friends and fans that have expressed their concern over my condition after crashing Saturday at the Daytona Supercross. I have been able to get some good rest and am now back in California where I anticipate making a full and speedy recovery. I would also like to give my personal thanks to the professional folks at the Asterisk Mobile Medical Unit and the staff at Daytona Motor Speedway.

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.

      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?
