I heard from a less than reliable source that 2011 was the last year for the XR. Is it true?

The series is a great idea, especially since it appears to get entry-level racing riders out there at a reasonable cost.

Its.......A FACT!

Nice little read, I watched you from the comfort of my friends Motorhome. Too freaking cold that day to hit the stands.

Now my question is how was that bump right at the braking zone for Black Rock? Seemed you guys lucked out that the flow (of the blackrock stream) was greatly reduced by the time you took to the track. I think it was "Sportbike" that had about a 6 ft wide stream at the time that looked at least an inch deep.

Still a fun series to watch.
