There is like a month between Arlington 3 and Atlanta 1, so instead of sitting on my Slaw and not doing anything, I will be reviewing my bold predictions TODAY from Arlington 3. Thank me later, doggies.
If you forgot, this blazing column is brought to you by the fine people at FLY Racing, who have stepped in to support Slaw and #slawnation couldn’t be happier. Visit www.flyracing.com and support those who support Slaw.
Barcia wins, if… He gets a start. BamBam “Bigelow” has been super good this year. A whole new rider. He hasn’t won since the opener, but if he holeshots tomorrow, I’m calling a win.
Did Barcia get the start? No, I don’t think so. Did he look great? Yes he did. Would he have won with a holeshot? Probably.
See above. Slaw ain’t got a clue what was going on with Mr. Fried earlier this year (Mr. Fried don’t talk with media much), but he’s a whole new rider these last few weeks. Podium this weekend, boys.
I didn’t really see much of Mr. Fried, but he got another top five, which is solid. Not what Slaw predicted, so I’ll take an L here.
Slawdiction: 0 out of 10.
Talk about a rider that has gone through a lot the last few years, but Deano is quietly putting a solid season together. That continues this weekend with a second top in a row.
Slawdiction: 14 out of 10.
Jett’s bro (hat tip to Ralph) has been killing it. There were serious questions about if he could rider supercross. Not anymore. He’s on fire and he keeps the points lead after A3.
Hunter went all Peter Parker on the damn Steve Matthes Memorial Nets and was lucky to survive. He still got a top 5, though. Damn tough bloke right there.
Slawdiction: 3 out of 10.
Call me crazy, but I like the A Ray this weekend.
Hot damn, what I tell ya, doggies. A Ray got his revenge on his mate Cade Clason and now we have a showdown in ATL coming up. Beef, it’s whats for dinner.
