Was very unnecessary of Anderson. Wasn't that far into the race or anything, but since it's Anderson, Roczen should've expected a douche move. Just look at Baggett's amazing pass on Anderson. It was far from the worst Anderson has done, but he seems to take people down for no reason/doing hail mary's on people when they aren't expecting it. Hampshire/AC last week was better, AC dished it to RJ, he returned the favor.

yeah, i heard him say Dylan Hayes or something during his heat race... then he was announcing enzo lopes lcq like it was the last lap but there was another lap to go... RC/Emig would've been a good combo.

That’s not how it works. You need a play by play and an analyst. 2 analysts won’t work. Weege and Blair would be ideal

Ralph not only called the LCQ short but then when Blake won he called "the orange number 4, a number and color you used to use". He gets better with age.

Huge bummer for Mookie, looked like a hip/head injury. The pass I don't think was as bad as what happened with AC because Anderson left Roczen space but he cut down and was stuck in a rut so it was worse than it really had to be. I agree that Anderson was going in to make contact but the amount of contact was just Ken's racing line being tight. I found it funny he apologized, probably remembered he was hurt and didn't need people dishing that back to him.

My fantasy team I think jinxed anyone and everyone on it but I can't remember 100% who I picked. Hoping it turns out better than I think it will.

You high? How was the expected result of what Anderson, who followed Ken's line though that corner before and after that lap, any different than what RJ did to AC? That RJ's was at least retaliation and not 100% unprovoked. How is that not as bad?

Ralph is our connection to the rest of the world. He's never going to be as knowledgeable as we want him to be, but the dude that ends up on NBCSN because his football game is over can take to Ralph easily with his dumbed down explanations. I don't mind the dude, and can pretty easily ignore him. The grammatical errors Richard makes are what I find funny. Either way, I'm just there to see the racing.

This.

Sucks for Malcom, was pumped for him...

RC vs Emig? Personally thik RC seems a bit more alert to what's going on and not stuck in a "it's mental" rut as Emig was..

Anderson left him plenty of room on the outside roczen shouldn't have cut down. That's just imo.

The biggest difference being Anderson would have made the corner without hitting Roczen. RJ would have blown the berm if he didn't hit AC and still almost put both of them over even with it. I also don't think Roczen saw it coming which is why he cut down into the rut like before. AC knew it was coming and took a defensive line through the corner only to still be blown out.

He said in the press conference that he didn't even heard him coming so he went to the inside rut, Anderson saw the spot and went for it. Not even close to the pass that RJ put over AC imo.
Bummed for Mookie but i don't think i was the only one that tought he would crash that day, seemed like he was pushing too hard.

Even in the press conference Ken was talking about how he cut down onto Jason, due to the ruts, but still.. Ken ran into Jason.
