I miss hearing the color commentators say Akira Yanagawa's name.

Foggy proves racing is a contact sport (but it was really no one's fault) when he bumps Kraus and knocks him to the ground. No surprise that Kraus was the slowest qualifier that race, running 12 seconds behind Slight's pole time.

Colin was ticked mostly because he'd been on, or on top of, the box most of the races until this race, which was roughly the mid-point of the season. After this his results suffered a bit and Foggy ran off with the points.

Lame answer. We've had this talk before in other threads.

In the case of the video above, it's all about the shape of the corner and the conditions they are crashing in. It just so happens that the oil is where riders turn in for the corner, creating a low side condition. Put oil anywhere else on the track and who knows what would happen? Oil on the exit of the corner in this case might very well mean violent high sides.

dang... anyone count how many went down in that corner? It should have been called, fixed, flagged better... anything. Edwards was taking it easy and still - I would be just as as him I beleive.
