Bryan Smith kinda got screwed on the last race . . . but, I guess those are the rules - and if it went in his favor it would be a different story. But, it didn't. In the old days, motors puked oil, tracks were rougher, conditions and safety were less a subject. The motorcycles are faster now - and we don't want anybody to die or get seriously hurt doing something they make a living at . . . If the cards fall in favor of Smith at the last race of this season in Pomona, California - he'll be the champion on his Kawasaki and the rest, my friends, will be history.
