    It would be cool if Brian Kraget (sp) came out of retirement. He goes blistering fast around VIR on a lightweight bike

    Holy moly, 2 hour virtual chat? Sorry, cannot hold attention that long. Dudes, shorten that right up to 15-30 minutes...

    Maybe a few years ago but doubtful he could keep up now unless I've missed something (which is quite possible). Kraget was indeed blistering fast. But the twins class in MA has pushed those bikes and riders to a completely new territory. They have absolutely smashed the lightweight records at every track since that class came around, by as much as 3-4 seconds at many places if I remember correctly. Parrish is probably one of the easiest riders to track this with. He was right there with Kraget as one of the fastest guys in the country on a lightweight bike pre-MA twins. And he still is now. But he's had to get significantly faster in recent years to maintain that status. Having not competed at that level for a few years when so much advancement has happened in such a short time, I suspect it would be quite a tall order to expect Kraget would be competitive.

    I bet he could in very short time. When you're fast, you're fast. I don't think you really ever lose it. Rob Fisher was fast in MA twins and I don't know what kind of time he took off, but it had to be a good bit. Same with Kris Turner.

    They should be there. They had to buy another bike to get a motor to make it. Parts for the original motor were on the far reaches of the earth..literally.

    Not sure why Jody isn't on the list. Pretty sure he and the team are down at VIR.

    The '"LIVE TIMING" link is on the grey menu bar above the "LATEST NEWS" and below the picture of the bikes. The schedule, entry list, results, etc. links are also on that same bar.

    Great to see they all closed the gap on Gagne. I was afraid this was going to be another Gagne runaway. Nothing against him, I'd just like to see some close racing.

    Is the KTM 390 Tyler Scott is on not one of the typical Cup Bikes? or is he just that quick? or both?
