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.

Slaw’s Rankings:

Slaw Dog: 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.

  • World Mini is so back! What an epic time so far.
  • KP brought the fingers to Arenacross. Pew. Pew.
  • Eli Tomac, Paul Webb, Lawrence bros speak for themselves.
  • WE launched the Grom Report this week. Watch it!

Troy Dog’s Rankings:

Troy Dog: You people did it! For the first time this season you fans have used your voices to move a rider up in the rankings and it was for your guy Hunter Yoder. I had him at nine last week, which I admit was pretty low. I’m sorry for that. You guys told me how much of an idiot I was and now he’s numero uno, which means number one in Spanish. Good job PRMX and good job Yoder!

Kevin Moranz was completely left out of my list last week, but the homie has been CRUSHING IT! He’s getting his great starts and he even passed Chase Sexton back for the lead in Seattle. Props to Mr. Moranz Mafia.

I’m not ready for Alex Ray to call it a career and I told him that this week. Then I went on a trip down memory lane and found his first ever pro interview . It was with me when I worked at Racer X. I’ve been down with ARay for a long time and he’s being selfish and not thinking abot my needs. 

Grant Harlan should be the SMX Rookie of the Year, and if he’s not this sport is rigged. 

I watched Vurb Wes’ newest vlog on his way to the World Mini with my good old friend Chase Stallo, who I used to work with at Racer X. It’s a fun time and Wes is absolutely crushing it with the dad jokes. 

The Vurbmoto World Mini Grand Prix is happening this weekend! It should be higher on the list, but it’s been on my rankings for months now. You’re going to see a lot of great content coming out of this race!

Team Solitaire and I have something really cool in the works and they were the entire reason I started talking about Olive Garden. I hijacked their thread on Twitter and upset some people. We’ll be better about this in the future.

My friend Denny Stephenson ripped my ass this week about stealing the Olive Garden thunder and claiming it as my own. I’m sorry, but also not because that was awesome. I’m never allowed to mention Olive Garden again. 

Chris “I’m not racing” Blose is holding it down for Pro Circuit! I have a lot of respect for Chris and what he’s done in this sport. Good job sir. I’m not ready for this farewell tour either. 

Everyone golfed on the off-weekend and Dean Wilson said that was boring.
