I think Michael Schumacher had the best plan- he picked Barrichelo for a teammate because he felt Rubens was his biggest threat.
I wish somebody would tell him that.LOL

You know what's funny when WSBK come to the us to race at salt lake.They run a shorter course than the AMA superbike guys. Infact who was it i believe Neil Hodges.A WSBK ex champion came over to AMA superbike scene and got his rearend KICKED BAD in his first year.Even the back markers was getting a piece of him and Neil was on a factory Ducati.LOL They interviewed him, The first words out of his mouth was i didn't know it was gonna be this hard. He said those guys didn't take the ama superbike series very seriously.In his second year never made to the podium but i do believe he had 1 or 2 top 10 finishes.Long story short i think 09 but i know for a fact this year he just won his first AMA superbike race.
I will some it up to this,different series,tracks breeds different riders,talent and bikes plus setups.
It breaks my heart that the guys who run nascar is running the american race bike scene now.LOL
Don't know if you guys caught this but i found it extremely interesting.Please BELIEVE!!!!! LOL
go BEN SPIES!!!!!
