1) this will not be a bashing session and there will be no name calling 2) i have been on both sides of the argument im going to make below, so i now understand why people used to make a big deal about it Here's my rant. As the season comes to an end, and points battles are getting closer and closer, I'd like to see the promoters take into consideration the classes they run together on the track. Without naming promoters and tracks (because that's not what this is about), there has been two weeks in a row of having issues with the second gated class catching up to the first gated class and causing riders to go down. The easy solution is to just split all classes into separate motos and everyone is happy, but lets be real, that cant/wont ever happen. Ive been on both sides of the argument. Back in my youthful days of running schoolboy and getting gated with older guys and hearing them complain about it, I always brushed it off as them being old and grumpy. And now that I am a bit older, and being gated with the younger riders, I now understand what they were saying back then. It's frustrating and annoying. I understand we aren't out there racing for AMA titles and million dollar championships, but for mos, if not all, of us, the weekend is spent at the track with our friends, riding and having fun, and maybe at the end of the year win a big dust collector to put on a shelf. Two weekends in a row I left the racetrack grumpy and mad because some younger, faster, kid who wasn't in my class can't make a pass without getting physical on the track. I know rubbing is racing, we've all been there, I get it. But when your actions are affecting my race that you aren't a part of, that's when I feel like I need to speak up. I don't have an 'answer all solution' and I'm not claiming to, I would just like to point out that as the end of the season grows closer, pushing multiple classes out at once so we can get the day done faster isn't the right answer. Feel free to offer suggestions below. Or just read and shrug it off.
