Over the last few weeks, our shows have been so packed with guests that we haven’t had time to cover the bench racing and editorial side of 2011 SX the way we normally like to. So, right out of the gate tonight we’re going to handle a few sweet spots from both Phoenix and Dodger Stadium. The plan is to cover some hot button topics like the apology from Ralph Sheheen to L&M Racing, Pastrana’s blurred Red Bull logo and the article by Daily News Knucklehead Tom Hoffarth hammering Supercross on the “Hallowed Ground” of Dodger Stadium. In addition to that, we’ll do some industry news, bench racing and we’ll give you some hints about what we saw during our visit to Rainbow Studios and the new MXvsATV Alive game.
At roughly 7:30, we’ll be calling Rockstar Suzuki’s Ryan Morais and giving him his proper respect for a well earned podium finish this weekend. Morais was a contender in 2010 SX until his season was cut short when he was landed on at one of the early season races. He sat out the balance of 2010 SX but it obviously didn’t hurt his speed as he proved on Saturday night in front of the historical crowd that filled Dodger Stadium.
We’ve wanted to talk with our next guest for a long time, and finally we’re making it happen. Moto Concepts rider Vince Friese has often been a topic of conversation on our show as well as off, now we’ll get the straight scoop from the man himself. Vince had a rough go at Dodger Stadium this weekend finishing third in the LCQ, which was as close as you can get, but not quite enough to put him and his Yamaha into the main event. We’ll talk to Vince about his aggressive riding style, his switch to 450’s for 2011 and whether it’s good or bad to go home with the Asterisk LCQ Bonus money.
Nick Paluzzi is a newcomer on the Supercross scene this year but hasn’t exactly been flying under the radar in the first three races. With two Top 10 finishes under his belt, the young rookie finds himself in a tie with his DNA Shred Stix Yamaha teammate Kyle Cunningham for 10th OA in the West Coast Lites Series. We’ll get some of the #72’s background as well as dig into what motivates him these days.
If there’s any time left, we’ll finish off the show with some MotoXDream Fantasy Supercross bench racing. If we get our way, we will be crank calling our weekly high points winner from the MXTalkRadio Division.
