This round @ RA

Both Mike Hale and Kevin Schwantz will be riding on F. Extreme. Is that cool or what?

i did the Schwantz school at Road Atlanta and can tell you that both those guys can ride. it will be fun to watch. Kevin is basically on Suzuki's payroll as a hired gun, mentoring young riders like Ben Spies. i would never have believed it but Schwantz is in great shape and can still ride.. can't wait.

Wow, Saturday's shaping up to be THE day to be up there! Formula Extreme, first AMA round of Supermoto, Superbike race.

What a bonus that Schwantz will be riding- it's not everyday that 500cc World Champion comes out of retirement to do a one-off ride in your backyard.

I just hope Caylor's Suzuki is competitive and set up well for Kevin. Sure will be cool to see him dicing with Zempke and Duhamel. Formula Extremely Lame needs this excitement for sure

I'm looking forward to the headlines already. "Local fast guy and aspiring AMA badboy Dan Ortega serves up some humility for legendary Kevin S. when he stuffs him hard into T1 over the weekend... "
