Stewart is a dirty, dangerous rider. He caused both accidents and the had the nerve to push Reeds bike over post race.. he needs to be fined at the very least.

You are both wrong, I was at the race and with Reed stuck behind Stewart in the Main, Reed continued to try to hit Stewarts rear tire in every corner. Reed said after the race that "everything happens for a reason". He broke his hand and is out of the championship because Reed, not Stewart, is the dirtiest rider in that paddock.

@ GonzCrazy. In my recording of that race, the camera is on Stewart and Reed from lap 2 to just before they crash and at no time is Reed close enough to hit Stewart's rear wheel. At the end of lap 2, Stewart bumps Windham in the final turn exactly the same as Reed bumps him later but no-one goes down in that incident. I still think it was a racing accident when Millsaps slows and Stewart cuts down tight to try and get a jump on him out of the bend.

I've watched the replay many times and it appears Reed came in hot and late for a block pass. Stewart didn't ram Windoms front wheel at almost a 90degree angle like Reed did to James.

The only one in "bad form" was Reed taking a shot at Stewarts head while he was laying on the ground. It's obvious that first "bad form" comment came from an Australian.

By the way I realy don't like Stewart but I just disaprove of Reeds behavior as of late.

To be fair Stewart was on top of Reed's broken hand when Reed pushed his head. Bubba caused the Moto 2 wreck with Partridge too. Bubba hasn't taken any responsibility for that. He can find the time to complain about Reed but he can't check to see if Partridge is alright. He is a dangerous rider. One of these days he is going to serioulsy hurt someone. Just ask Windham or Preston or the GOAT, RC about Bubba's costly mistakes. The Kawasaki team should have filed charges with the police for the damage done to the team's motorhome and Chad's bike.

I used to like Bubba when he was a 125 rider but he does too many stupid moves now.

I've watched the clips and to me, both crashes just seemed like racing incidents. In the first, well, maybe James did move into Partridge a bit, but he wasn't trying to be dirty, stuff just happens out there when you're going that hard.
In the second, whoever was in front of Bubba (Vilopoto?) cut across really sharply off the berm, so Bubba had to go even tighter. Reed wasn't expecting those guys to be in the middle of the track in that corner and he was already committed to that inside-to-outside line... nowhere to go but into James. It's racing, crashes happen.
Bubba is still the class of the field but I'd like to see Dungey and a few others give him a good battle this year.
