So now that he rides for Suzuki you don't like him. Just proves that riders like Reed and Bubba can win on any brand and all the brands have great bikes.

Good point, I hate people that are so judgmental when it comes to things like that. I can understand if your a Kawasaki fan, or something like that but come on. I would say in motocross it comes down to 85% rider, and 15% bike. Because no matter what bike you get on (85cc and above) it should have the capability speed wise to hit any jump on whatever track your at, or that jump should'nt be there. I know there are exceptions were say you were at Red Bud, were Larocco's Leap is like 145 feet long. haha, but honestly. It all comes down to rider talent.. That's why most of these ameuture riders are coming off 85cc, right on too 125cc's, and racing pro's a month later.

I think the big difference since Reed has gone to Suzuki is he rides to win instead of settling for 2nd or 3rd like he did on the Yamaha. He has always had tons of talent and showed many of times being as fast as RC or Bubba but always would just settle for 2nds and 3rds. This year no matter where he is in the field he is pushing for the win.

After the start he had last week he could of just bagged it in on that super hard track but pushed hard and was rewarded with a hard fought 2nd place. It is great to see.

I think RC will do fairly well. He took all the right steps by slowly moving up through local late model series. I watched him in the ARCA RE/MAX 250 at Talladega on Speed and he ran top 5 all day. Sure, he had some of the best equipment (KHI funded), but to run with Frank Kimmel, Scott Speed, and Colin Braun for first time on a superspeedway is saying something. Unfortunately, tire problems cause him and a lot of other teams to wreck before the end.

So anyone headed to Houston for this weekend's race? I'm curious to see who will stand out in the East division. I think Izzi will be a surprise.

I'm a little late but if anybody was at Anaheim 2 Saturday tell me Chad Reed's performance was not !

I'm a Bubba guy myself and I'll admit after the gate dropped and hearing "Chad Reed IS DEAD LAST!!!" brought a smile to my face, but daaaang his lines were flawless sub 30 second laptimes while everybody was runnin' 30s and higher. He was on a mission. But yet my boy pulls off the W haha go Bubba GO!

Hit up Youtube! haha i'm not sure exactly what they have on there from Anaheim 2 but I'm sure you'll find Reed passing riders left and right and catch 2nd place with 3-4 laps to go. If it was a 25 lap main (exhausting i'm sure...) Reed would've caught Bubba for another battle.
