I don't think anyone has mentioned this yet but examine the ticket for last weeks Steel City Nationals closely and you will see why Bubba was so fast. ;)

Bubba is fast cuz he twists his throttle all the way open

I think when the gate drops it is wide open until the checkered flag flies. Also please refer to my thread about making up time on a 250.

It would have nothing to do with him whipping it on a KX250, now would it? ;)

Langston was there throughout and won, bubba wasnt and lost the title because of it, hey i agree with you when you say bubba was the fastest everywhere but langston had more points and won, its that simple. Racer X put a list of other people that maybe shouldnt have won, but hey langston won and is the 125 champion.

Okay, I don't get where you guys are seeing a 250 in that picture. I see black number plates and what looks like 125 on the swing-arm. Hold your horses boys!

That's a picture out of one of the mags when he's testing a 250 (in the original picture it's written on his swingarm).

I don't think the AMA puts out the tickets (I could be wrong)... I think I saw that picture on the RacerX website... the way I tell is by the pipe, doesn't look like a 125 pipe! I remember RX saying that they wanted to have the number on in the photos, and all they had was the plastic from the 125...
