Vurbmoto Power Rankings Heading into Detroit

Welcome to the 2023 Slaw/VurbWes/Troy Dog Combined 250/450 Top Ten Power Rankings! Slaw, Wes, and Troy each have created their own list of who they believe carry the most power in the sport. They each have created their own categories and have weighted these people accordingly, whether its speed, following, SX skills, you name it. 

Each week these rankings will be updated so that you guys can argue about how wrong they are in the comment section! Feel free to tell us if we’re right/wrong/or completely dumb.

VurbWes’ Rankings

VurbWes: It’s time to head to KID ROCK’S house, baby. He owns Detroit, hands down. Slaw knows it and he loves 40’s and chicks with beepers. So I think he might be on board with having TRL’s #6 ALL-TIME toping the VurbWes list.

World Mini, the next HUGE amateur race coming up April 6-9th at Mesquite Moto in Mesquite, NV takes a clear second. Did we mention it’s our race?

SO SO CLOSE to winning my power rankings (but barely being edged out) this week is Ken Sauce. This might sound gross, but I covered my Chili Dogs in that stuff all this week. They should probably start stocking it in Walmart. Whether or not he keeps the streak going, he deserves my top rider spot after that amazing and emotional win in Indy.

Sorry TroyDogCEO, Slaw held a rubber band gun to my head and made me put Ginger fourth after she wrote a fire blog this week on Vurb. He was saying she should take your job.

Tyger Bereman sneaks into the top 5 after an insanely impressive outfit + bike combo at Day in the Dirt Down South. He’s also responsible for giving Ken Sauce the magical powers last week after towing him over at massive 153ft gap at Sandbox AND he hosted four episodes of our latest YouTube series. WINNING.

Cooper… red plate. Enough said.

Sipes… RIDES AGAIN. That’s big. That’s emotional. And we love to see it. Can’t wait until it’s full-time shred season for you again. We’ve missed you.

DITD Down South. I’ve gotta go in person next year. It’s time. No choice.

H-Dog cranking out the 250 wins faster than Slaw can put down his 4,000 monthly beers. While both are very impressive feats, Hunter Lawrence undoubtedly deserves this coveted spot in the charts.

Eminem is a badass for sure, but Kid Rock don’t get nervous on 8 Mile.

Troy Dog’s Rankings

Troy: I wrote blogs on HEP this week. Go read those. Not much more I can add. Oh, and I have a fire vlog coming.

Slaw’s Rankings

Slaw: I will bullet point my thoughts so it is easier to read. Troy Dog has a hard time reading, so I’m making it easy for him to see how much better my rankings are.

  • What a great win for Dustin, the team, Ken, Suzuki. As I proud member of RM Army, WE did this together.
  • To see the emotions coming from Ken after that win almost made Slaw tear up.
  • Ginger Dog with the fire this week. And she made sure Troy got to the track. Team Ginger!
  • Paul Webb… red plate… amazing!
  • Hunter is SO HOT RN.
  • Bad night for Tomac, but he’ll bounce back in MoTown.
  • Tough night for Chase, but he’ll bounce back in MoTown.
  • World Mini IN THREE WEEKS! Let’s go!
  • Nate Trasher is just a dude now. Cool to see.
  • Justin Barcia is gonna win this weekend. Slaw it!
  • I hate writing this, but Troy did a decent job in Indy. He makes my rankings… in 11th. I even added a spot just for him.
