So let’s hear your predictions for this Saturday. Top three, order doesn’t matter. I’m going with Muscan, Anderson, and Tomac for top three.

Tomac, of course.

The Frenchman, muscan is an artist when he's on. Just glad it's back. Some of those rounds were absolute nail biters

As usual, Eli Tomac's biggest threat to a championship is Eli Tomac.
Roczen looked really good....especially for a guy that almost had his left arm amputated last year. He will notch some wins this year....I'd put mmoney on it. Barcia and Anderson looked like they could be potential winners this season as well. Musquin ended up building on the momentum he was carrying from the off-season.

I honestly think that Musquin may be running the number 1 plate this time next year, although, these other 4 gents are gonna make it tough. I haven't been this unsure of how a supercross season might go in a very long time and I can't wait to see how it all plays out.

The ruts looked treacherous! I hope Musquin heals up. Roczen looked amazing.

You notice the new format is not only a shorter number of races, the whole thing seems to be much more rushed.

I thought the 250 main was the best racing last night.

I think Ken Roczen is one of the most gifted riders to ever line up at the gate, but I really think last years crash is still messing with his head, and I completely see why it would.

If the pass Anderson made on him last night would have been attempted last season, it would have been "Game On", but last night he just let him go. Maybe he took a look at Dungey's play book and realized podium points are a whole lot better than the risk of crashing out.

It's still very early in the season, but I'm not sure what to make of Barcia. He's riding like I had expected to see him do his rookie season in the 450 class. I hope he continues at this pace the remainder of the season, that'll keep it fun.

Same thing with Cooper Webb. Not sure what's going on with him either, as I was really expecting great things from him in the 450 class.

Hopefully Tomac and Muscan are going to be okay and back at the gate sooner rather than later. The deeper the talent the better...

It's starting to look like this season is going to come down to the last person to smash themselves into the dirt. Hopefully, Tomac, Musquin, and Wilson all get healthy soon and back in the mix. Strange that they all went out with shoulder injuries.

Plessinger was on FIRE!! Glad to see him up on the top box.

450's are a crap shoot, don't know who will be on the line from week to week. I'm pulling for Anderson this year.

I'm with you on Webb, was really expecting him to come a running this year, kid's fast and stable on the 250, just seems it hasn't followed him to the 450. I think he is too concentrated on other riders instead of his own ride.

Anderson seemed to pass Roczen at will. Roczen is still fast but I agree the physical may be playing into his ride, especially the limitations if any with the hand.

I would like to see Tomac and Muscan back out there. I think there are 5 - 6 guys this year with legitimate shots if they can stay in the race and get their head on straight.

And yeah 250's was some pretty good racing. Plessinger Looked good last year and better this year.

I remember riding a couple hare scrambles back in the day with Aaron's dad. He comes from good stock.

He's an impressive rider. I hope he continues to do well in the 250's and then carries it over to the 450's.





Back to California tonight. I'm going with two easy picks, Anderson and Roczen. For the anybody's guess, I'm going to stick with Baggett...

Tomac 1st in timed practice today, Marvin and Dean are back racing tonight
as well

Should be an interesting night with the 3 main event format

18 riders qualify in timed practice then the final four from the LCQs that will run during the day so the night show will be 6 main events 3 for 250s 3 for 450s

Race day live will have the LCQs as well as timed practice online

It will be interesting to see Barcia and Anderson go at it ... maybe Bacia will take Anderson out like Anderson has taken so many others out.

I saw Plessingers dad race in the Shnf back in the ..... very impressive. He has great style and can ride in the mud.

Well it wasn’t Kawasaki’s night but I’m glad to see a Yamaha win the 250 anyway. Hope Plessinger can keep beating those KTM’s even if they do have the field stacked with them. I counted 9 out of 22. Rob I think they do that just Incase five of them break down there still four racing. :lol2:

Glad too see Hill back in form. So what's going on with Barcia? Equipment problem, or just out of sync on the track? Some really good battles in both 250 and 450.

Arlington this weekend, hope some of you get to go. I bet that's a great venue.
Headed that way later this morning with number 3 and 4 in tow. Been to a couple HS FB championships there and it is a great venue. Not a bad seat in the house. Have to concentrate on watching the on field action and not the big screen. Last time I will use ticketmaster though.

Kawasaki take’s it in Texas. D— those Kawasaki’s are fast.
Yep. Well done to Tomac and team Green. Only 70 points out of getting to run a red plate. All he’ll need is a small miracle or a couple of orange fenders put on that green bike...

Yes sir, Team Green had another good night.

That was some fun racing to watch. I can't believe how well Justin Hill did, and I hope it wasn't a onetime flash in the pan. I really like that kid.

They need to include a sand section like that one in every race...
