The much ballyhooed “penultimate” round of the Supercross series was setup for either max-drama or predictable deflation.As fate would have it, we got a little of both sides of the coins and that ain’t all bad if you ask me. I mean seriously, the RV we’ve seen for the majority of this series was just not going to be denied. He’s the same guy who secured the title in 2011 without qualifying for a main and also the guy who put the title on ice last year with what amounted to three rounds left on the schedule. SpeedTV did their best to build that last gasp of drama with the qualifying session crash-compilation of the repeat champion and even in the heat race, Millsaps made it look like he may have RV’s number for SLC. As soon as Millsaps put the move on RV in the heat race, the crowd cheered and I took a deep breath and said, “ohhhh, now RV is going to file away his lines for the main”. Not good for those of us wanting to see the title decided in Vegas.
