AMA sportbike racing

That was an incredible season.

The last four races at NJ and Barber were phenomenal. The best racing I've ever seen.

Personally, I lost a little respect for Eslick on the last race. IMO, we was NOT riding clean the entire race eventually taking Herrin out.

Barber is an exciting place. Last year 2009 was the impossible save by Hacking...

I saw this post after I mentioned the AMA races in your MotoGP thread. I was wondering if anyone else felt Elsick pushed it too hard at Barber. Then I watched Lorenzo and Rossi, there is such a fine line between superb racing and going too far...

I didn't get to watch the race until this weekend (4 AMA races and 1 MotoGP races this weekend) so I havent looked up to see if the AMA took issue with Eslick.

The AMA site didn't have anything either. Maybe he got away with it or maybe they aren't in a hurry since they have time. Either way I'm sure Scott Russel will bring it up next season.
