"The Confrontation"

Last edited:

I guess there was a section that Laracco had been tripling all night. On lap 5 LaRocco doubled and Travis landed on him. Larocco broke his wrist in the crash. A lap later Travis crashed again and this time he was out of the race. Well, the Rock was not happy and tracked Travis down and gave him a piece of his mind... :eek:

Sounds like (from what I've read on some SX sites), it wasn't TP's fault, but LaRocco lost his temper with him anyhow.

Anybody see this who can offer a more informed opinion, though?

The way I see it, last week it wasn't RC's fault, but a bunch of morron's in Indy booed him for a racin incident. I wonder if the poeple booed Travis for the racin incident with Mike?

In LaRaccos defense, he got taken out in his heat, had to run the qaulifier, Not a great night for the LaRock! I did not see the incident that actualy was right below me, but I hear from the peo[ple around me that larock hit the melt point:ugg: To bad because he is a class act, I think that the way his night was going, I guess I am not going to condem him for it right or wrong. Guess I will wait for the Rest of the Story,...........good day

I was just sitting here with mini127 discusing the TP-Rock get together. He says what he saw was travis do the double at the end of the woops and go wide left, then rails the berm and shoot back across the corner. Rocky rolled the double to take the inside line. They played chicken as many other riders did this same thing all night long. Since neither was chicken, they hit. I saw Boniface hit and almost take down Langston in this same manner. Langston backed off for a bunch of laps, then passed Boniface some where else
I didnt see it happen either, so I'm interested in seeing this on TV.:silly:

Walt That is real close to what the kid described. Unfortunately I had moved down to get some shots of MC running up front and was watching him thru the viewfinder when I look over 30 feet to my right and Larocco is sitting on the tuffblock and TP is riding away.

It really was a great night of racing- watching MC running down and passing 2 riders for the lead then actually holding the lead til he did the 360 turn in a 90 degree corner:confused: .
The 125 main was also great watching Dowd fight all the up to 4th(?) only to get taken out. Almost thought Patman was going to have kittens if KTM could have pulled off 2nd, 3rd, and 4th for the night. Reed is fast and I can't wait to see the Reed/Stewart matchup in Vegas.

I really expected to see Travis win a 250 main this year, but as the weeks go by I'm noticing a trend, he just can't stay off the ground and out of trouble. Look at last years Nationals, you could almost guarantee he was gonna eat it, it was just a matter of when. When(if?) Travis figures out how to gain some control he'll be a title threat, but not now. If based on what I've read on the incident with Larocco is accurate, I think Mike had a right to be steamed. Travis is more than a bit out of control at times and this time instead of taking just himself out he took out Mike too. A wrist injury can be really serious, look at Rick Johnson, hopefully Mike is able to make a full recovery, hasn't Mike had wrist troubles in the past as well? I really wouldn't want to be Travis in this situation, he has to feel a bit like crap, plus Mike is the type of guy who might just slam you down when he gets the chance. I'll wait to watch the race before I totally pass judgement on Travis, but I think everyone can agree he needs to calm it down a bit.

From what I've read about it (waiting to see it), my first impression is it's another "That's Racing" without all the boos.
If you remember, this isn't the first time that TP and Rock have had contact that left Mike furious about it. Last year at StL SX, when TP was trying to Iron Man it, they bumped in the air over the triple in the first lap of the 250 heat. When that race was over, Mike didn't look real happy then either.:eek:

I think Travis "looks wild" because he crashes every weekend. It is so funny how people just over look the fact that he may have ended Larocco's long career. Travis is a hazard week after week but he is a nice guy so thats OK.

Thats what i am begining to think. he should have stayed on the 125's another year.

A lot of guys crash a lot, but you don't notice 'cause they're not at the front of the pack. Lusk comes to mind. :)
