Did you see the wheel after the crash? Wonder if wheel failed when he hit the rut and locked -up? He was loopy for sure. Bet they ignore the obvious concussion and he races next week. Hated seeing Mookie fall too.Terrible break for Chase Sexton tonight. The track was definitely breaking down, but I'm not sure how that happens at that point in the race when Anderson wasn't able to apply serious pressure. Pretty good recovery for Tomac after his had start. Much better race from Webb. Anderson regains some of the points he lost due to misfortune early in the year.
Yeah, I was glad to see Jett own it, but that doesn't help Austin Forkner, who is done for the season with a broken collar bone. RC praised Jett Lawrence for the respect he has for his competitors... a comment that didn't age well IMO. The kid is loaded with natural talent, but is perpetually out of control. He has a lot of growing up to do.Good on Lawrence for owning the mistake fully in the interview.

In the 450's, if anyone wants to challenge Tomac and Anderson, they better get their ass in gear pronto. There's still nine rounds to go and nothing is decided yet, but those two are a clear step ahead so far.
I've seen a lot of talk about the problems KTM/Husqvarna are having with their totally redesigned bike for this year. I don't know if that's correct or just an excuse, but it's what some insiders are saying.
He's morphing into Barcia II. I hated that stuff when Reed used to do it to Bubba every chance he got.Boring 250 race, great 450 race with Tomac chasing down Webb. It's a shame that McElrath got in Webb's way, but Tomac clearly had the pace to make the pass.
While there may have been smarter ways for Mookie to deal with Anderson without taking himself out of contention, I can't blame him for having had enough. I've enjoyed Anderson's riding this year except for all of the contact. For a guy who says he wants to ride clean, he sure has run into a lot of guys. Eventually that is going to catch up to you, and it did tonight in a big way.
I missed it all. Good thing about Peafowl is they save the shows. I'll watch it tomorrow or whenever they fix my stuff.That was an incredible 450 race until all of the carnage. Very unfortunate about the injuries to Anderson, Webb, Sexton, Ferrandis, and whoever else I'm forgetting. Awful to see all that, definite instance of Stupidcross. Tomac was far away the class of the field. Glad to see Malcolm survive and finish a strong second.
The championship is now over unless Tomac gets hurt.
