In the infamous words of Yogi Berra, "This is like deja vu all over again." The fuel crisis that nearly crippled the best supercross season ever is not even a year old and we are dealing with the next installment already. Steve Burns is VP Fuel’s President and CEO, and he will be joining us tonight to directly answer questions related to the latest fuel controversy. Even with independent test results pending, he said that no topic is off limits and looks forward to addressing the claims and accusations against his company.
We have watched Factory Yamaha’s Josh Hill race since he was on tiny little dirt bikes and we knew his results thus far did not reflect his talent and speed. In fact, Josh raced the first few rounds pretty banged up, but gutted it out to salvage some points in his rookie SX season. We will track down the loveable Northwesterner tonight for an update as he is finally feeling his groove and showing why Yamaha moved this kid up into the Factory rig.
Sobe NoFear / Samsung / Honda’s Jake Weimer joined his teammate on the box at San Francisco for his first podium this year. Jake sits third in points and has done a great job carrying the team’s colors after Josh Grant was injured at the opening round. Jake will be calling in from somewhere in California tonight as he prepares for the final round at Anaheim this week.
We cover and announce Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National Championship each year and the women’s class is consistently some of the week’s best racing. The established riders show up each year, but a depth of new talent comes out to challenge and push the limits. Sarah Whitmore is synonymous with women’s racing and has helped to elevate the sport’s exposure over the last several years. The Girlyz / Motoworld Yamaha top rider hopes to contend for the WMA top spot as well as the coveted LL Championship in 2007. The lovely and fast Sarah will help bring some class to the show tonight. Her new teammate, Katie McGuire will join us too. Katie has been doing well on her own, but hopes to learn a lot from one of her mentors this year.
Jason Weigandt will say words tonight over his phone to us.
WWR and Scott Kandel will welcome Adam Chatfield, Vernon McKiddie, and Chris Blose on the program tonight. Also, O’Neal’s Rider Support Director, Chris Honnold will round out the segment dedicated to our beloved privateers.
Every Wednesday Night
