Saw it on ESPN2. This kid is on fire. Hate to see the V-Rod loose but it was a well earned win.

it would be cool if tonglet won the whole ball of wax.. now that they have a little money to work with they will be tough.. his dad has been a racer for a long time and has run a lot of laps down the 1/4 himself and tuned a lot more.. i know andrew is on a "v-rod" but i gotta pull for the underdog..

I couldn't agree more. It's not like V&H are losing out, initially giving the Tonglets a helping hand.

They win and obtain sponsorship along the way and can now afford to buy more motors from them.

IMO, LE also takes out some of Andrew Hines other competitors with these wins, and more importantly, they all win because this draws attention to the V&H Suzuki motor program which isn't a bad thing for the business either. :deal:
