Thats about how old King Jeremey was when he was run out of supercross.


I think that alot of guys are thinking that NASCAR is an easy way to keep making some money. And its not.

I've been in a Nascar simulater,if it's anything like the real deal,I give mad props to those guys that can drive one for 3 to 4 hours at those speeds.

Those of you that know what it's like to control a bike at 150 plus know how hard it can be..........X that by 10 and you have a Nascar for 3 hours.

Why do the vendors want us to buy there stuff when they never have it in stock?
:book1: One thing leads to another and the next thing you know,your bike is a piece of neglected junk. :book1:

I still think Rossi is going to F1 with Ferarri in 2008. He wants a win on the 800s first.

I believe a Pro motocrosser would be able to handle the conditions of Nascar way easier than a Nascar driver could handle Pro Motocross conditions...
