Starts in Anaheim tonight. I'm curious how Eli Tomac is going to do. He should be fast if he can stay on the bike. Anyway, I hope I'm not the only one watching.

Can't wait! Go Stew, go Reed, go Dunge, and the rest! Will be interesting to see how guys like Millsaps, Hahn, Pourcel, etc. do this season. Good luck to all!

Great race, though when Stew went down it deflated my anticipation for the race. Anderson did bring the excitement back for me. Glad to see Reed looking in shape and on point this early. Looks like Anderson and Dungey are the fastest of the class at this point.

Good for Eli for keeping it on the wheels and not riding the wheels off to get to the front. If he can maintain that patience he'll be one of the greats. Kroc, he'll come around. Rough day for him but a good finish IMO.

I don't particularly care for Canard, never have. Said to myself when he was catching Dungey that Dungey would be going down. And it played out. Reed didn't call Canard a dumbA$$ last season for nothing.

Peick... that was so ignorant. Understandable, but man he had to know it was the dumbest thing he could do. Friese has deserved it for years though! So it was funny as hell! lol

Everybody ready for round #2 ? It's gotta be one of my top five favorites types of racing. Anybody old enough to remember Hannah on the Yamaha?

I'm from the Rick Johnson/Jeff Ward era. Never saw it on TV or live though, only read about them in magazines.

They racing now? I've got it paused on the monster [email protected] lol

Does Stewart have a chance at the championship after missing tonight?

Good to see the younger riders getting some wins too.

I'm a big Stew fan. Racing isn't the same without him IMO, period. He brings the excitment of the unknown. That said, no. I do hope he gets at least a couple, if not a handful of wins this season. Hope Reed gets a couple too.

It was a pretty interesting race, but only b/c Reed was running in second and made you wonder if he could close the gap. I did wonder about Anderson jumping on that flag, and apparently he's getting docked and won't keep his finishing position. So that means Dunge has a good command of the championship at this point. His consistency, and these days his intensity, are his best assets, as well as his "race smarts." Here's to hoping lady luck falls his way and avoids any stupid injuries, and see if anybody can make a run at the champ. A handful of guys who can do it, just a matter of if they can race smart enough as Dungey does, and get him at his own game (consistency). This is all my opinion only. Bring on a handful of wins for the #7. I'd love to see that!

Really wish these darn races were on two hours earlier! jbrow too old to be staying up past 1 am anymore!! lol

I was pumped to see JS7 lineup this year. Huge bummer what happened in A1. I hope he gets back ASAP. Stewart has a way of changing the game in a rhythm section. Toronto 2014 still gives me goosebumps to watch. Maybe he can get back and do it again this year in Toronto, eh?

Crazy how fast Reed was this weekend! He's redefining the retirement age in Supercross. Be twistin' grips and breakin' hips before too long!

I'm going Roczen in A2. He's due and he's freaky fast in Anaheim.
