This is a big weekend across the board. RV Park can wrap up the title in the Lites, the race will mark the 10-year anniversary for One Industries, and there is also a little race going on somewhere over in Florida. My ass will be in Daytona, but my heart will be equally divided on both sides of the country. As I write this at 30,000 feet on US Airways flight 1791, it just dawned on me that there will be a supercross going on in San Diego, but Ricky Carmichael is going to be on pit road with me for the Duel 150’s this afternoon. It’s a crazy world, isn’t it? Crazy as it is, if you are reading this, you are a race fan. And I urge all race fans to try a little cross-sport action this weekend. Get Revved Up about the fact that one moment the SPEED channel is going to be broadcasting a race car with a motocross sponsor on it, then the next it will be showing the supercross race that will likely have Nascar30’s Jeff Dement in the main event. More on that later—let’s go over the two classes that will throw down Saturday night.
Chad Reed’s momentum was slowed last week in Houston by a mouthful of sand. He’ll need to keep his grill clean is he has any aspirations of keeping James in sight in San Diego. Chad put in an incredible ride here in 2005, as he overtook Ricky Carmichael on the last lap for the win. Other than those two cats, I think the biggest thing to get stoked on is Timmy Ferry’s performance. How about ol’ Red Dog? He has been digging for a long time, and it’s good to see him getting some love again.
Other than that, the folks that have to be the most pumped about the coming weekend is One Industries. A little over ten years ago, they began making some graphics, and since then the San Diego-based company has grown into one of the most unique and stylish logos in the sport. Marc, Ludo, Dobey, and the boys will all watch the action this weekend with a proud set of eyes.
Okay, guys, it’s going to be a big weekend. Let’s all keep out thoughts and prayers with everyone that will be racing on both coasts. Two wheels or four.
Thanks for reading, see you next week.
