From Reed: @CRtwotwo: A deal is a deal! U guys got 10k Likes so its official
I'm comin home to race the last 3 rounds of Aus SX

From Stewart: @js7: Doesn't look like I'll be at MC. Not going to rush it. Have a goal & a plan & we're sticking to it. A goal without a plan is just a wish!

I don't think Stewart dropping out of the MEC surprised anyone.

I don't reed twitter but I'm not surprised on either account. I'm glad to see reed is doing something, not surprised to see James is not racing. Flame suit on.

Reed is still in for the MEC. He hasn't said otherwise. I'm pretty sure the aus sx is the next week or 2 weeks after MEC.

James is calling TD's bluff to see if he'd really stop caressing and start to squeeze. :lol:

spending a few laps on your head isn't exactly racing anyway

and since its RV's first race back, sounds like Dungey has another BIG payday coming up

That sucks. I was really looking forward to it, but now it looks like it will be just like the outdoor season...

Reed is still in. He and mrs22 said it on twitter last night. They fly to Aus after the MEC.

I think I know his source ........... the problem is he and Tdoshi forget that JS likes to change his mind at crunch time .................... it's almost like he want's to do the MEC , but then is scared to loose so he backs out :excuseme: JS said in a interview that if he thinks he can't win he doesnt want to race

I'm glad Reed is still in, should make it that much better. He's a smart racer, and I don't think he's going to push it too hard, and risk not being ready for Anaheim. RV will probably be in the same boat, although both will probably be ready by the opener. I think both will ride well, and will approach it like Dungey did last year, feeling it out.

Stewart has the capability to win any time he suits up, and it's too bad he won't be there. There isn't enough time between now and Anaheim I, and with his history of going down, I don't think either he nor the team wants him injured before then.

Too bad, that would have made it that much more interesting.

I'm a Dungey fan, but don't think he'll win the million. Last year Townley beat him in one, and it took him all 10 laps to get around Metcalf for second in another. He may win the overall though, we'll see. All of the fast 250 guys will likely be riding 450's and will mix it up also.

It should be a good race.

RV has em running for the hills...........If they show up and get smoked they will just give RV momentum and confidence he doesnt even need going into SX....Looks like a game of chess to me..which sux cuz I wanted to watch racing.
