New era in flat-track?

Most of what I know about flat-track comes from On Any Sunday, but this stuff looks interesting:

It is definitely interesting and there is a LOT more going on in that realm, but I am not at liberty currently to discuss is publicly. Awesome stuff happening in flat track racing though! You happen to see that Kawi tearing it up this last season?

I haven't seen any coverage - it's off the radar of even satellite broadcasters for us.

As far as dirt-track goes, we get the FIM Speedway GP series - Greg Hancock still representing Fast Old Guys!! - but not much more...

Looks as though a real resurgence of 750 pro dirt tracking with updated machinery might be upon us.
While I hate circle track anything paved, I love motorcycle dirt tracking.
I was also able to appreciate the "Wrecking Crew", just recently have seen The Harley & The Davidsons TV mini series.
(Speaking of which, I want to read up on the Indian sneak attack by use of patent filing based on copying HD's unpatented parts)
Anyway, let's see how HD responds to all this.
