Yep. And it's even better now that the Moto GP champ has been decided. He won't have to worrry about getting ion the way of the battle between championship contenders. He can just let it all hang out...

Happy for Ben ... sad for Haga ... at least now I can back Haga 100% next year.

Yeah, I really wish it could have been Ben/Haga #1/#2 in both races but the result was what I was hoping for. Next year is going to be a blast...... WSBK is packed with great riders 4 or 5 different riders could be contending for the title, and MotoGP has 3 or 4 who could potentially win it. Not too often you get to see this many great racers on 1 track. I really want to see Ben take it to Rossi on a race or 2 next year.

That'll be good to see. I seriously doubt he'll be a front-runner, but it'll be nice to see how he fairs.

At least NASBIKE won't be the Mladin hour anymore. There might be some interesting racing going on. Even if the rules are still retarded.

I watched my Tennessee Volunteers almost beat #1 Alabama this weekend. Watching them lose by a blocked field goal was a heart breaker.........






But Ben Spies sure as made up for it!!!!!!!!!! FVCK YEA!!!!!!!

Now....it's time to see what he can do in MotoGP.

Happy Hunting Ben.......we're all behind you over here in the Lone Star State.

I'll second the motion to cheer for Haga next year. This guy deserves a title like no other. Let's just hope that Fabby doesn't spoil it for him.

Sucks for Haga, but I'm HAPPY for Spies! He kicked *ss as a rookie, and truly deserves his seat on team TEXAS next year in GP.

As far a Fabby goes, did anyone else notice in the last 3 three rounds that he deliberately finished ahead of his teammate TWICE and costing him 10 points in the championship. Especially if you consider the fact that he had no chance of of winning or even finishing above 3rd place in the series, which he was already locked into. As well as the fact, that Spies won by 6 points.

That being said, Spies DESERVES this champion, Haga needs to win it next season. Fabby is a jack*ss and needs to slapped so he knows his place!

That's racing Sir, and I fully endorse it. The problem was not Fabrizio, the problem was that Haga didn't finish ahead of him IMHO.

I don't like all those "team orders" BS; besides, Fabreeze has a new ride next year anyway on another team since Ducati didn't give him a ride- no surprise that he'd try to beat Haga.
