    Yes, Brian, I was watching during the interview when Erin (Master) Bates (just kidding ;) ) asked Stewart about the wheel sensor.
    I immediately thought that Stewart’s team wouldn’t blatantly put an illegal sensor there for the whole world to see, and that there was probably some other legal reason for it.
    I assumed that Erin was just being a “newspaper reporter”, looking to dig-up some dirt in order to get some good TV ratings via hype. :)

    John, funny is I remember the 91 battle. I went to the detriot race that year, Stanton vs Bradshaw, still have the T-shirt. Awesome indeed. This race was really good I agree, Villipoto came up from 9th and caught Stewart. Put a wheel in on him and Bubba washed, then Dungey and Cenard were battling. Very clean racing, good passes and no cheap shots. I was on the edge of my seat the whole race. Dungey finally turned it up, there was a fire burnin under that boy! Just need to get Andrew Short in the mix. I really want to see KTM on the podium this year.

    Did you notice the apology given to Stewart, SanManuel and Yamaha Motors in the beginning? It was Erin Bates I beleive last weekend that asked how his,Stewarts, traction control sensor helped him win the race in the slippery conditions. There was speculation as to what is was on his back wheel. A mechanic spotted a sensor on his back wheel during practice. Traction control is illegal in supercross though, which implies Stewart was cheating. Data acquisition, i.e. wheel speed sensors are not. Erin merely chose the wrong words I beleive and didn’t realize the implications. Seemed to be innocent enough. Interesting though they gave a full apology on prime time.

    Definitely the most exciting race of the young season, so far.
    Wish they were all that good.
    Reminds me of Atlanta, 1990 or 1991, where all the top guys were at it up front for practically the whole race. :)
