Great race, its sad to see Vale deliberatly riding into Casey, dirty riding, dirty tactics, I thought he was better than that, I guess not. Looks like the gloves are off now thanks to Vale, I just hope knowone gets hurt.

Imagen if Casey did that to Vale, the physco's here would go nuclear.....most of you have gone apesh1t allready.

If Casey gets payback just remember where it started: Vale riding into Casey @ Laguna Seca.
