    When you do the 200 I am 100% on your pit crew.

    No skin in this game - just curious.... is that because of his leadership/managerial/promotional skills or dwindling interest?

    Pretty sure it was how much loudon charges. They have a pretty steep payout for the pro open, too. Think they payed to have the dirt brought in, too.

    This, of course is mostly speculation.

    Yeah interesting situation after a hell of a last lap. Cory West is an instructor at Texas Tornado Boot Camp where I have been lucky enough to spend an awesome 4 days on a couple occasions now. Had a few late nights over a few too many beers/bottles and he always came across to me as a class act and a very genuine and humble dude. I have a hard time believing him or his team did anything knowingly to try and skirt the rules. The dude can fucking ride. He was still with EBR back then and crushing it last I saw him, sucked to see him out of it for a bit when they went under but I'm glad he's back in the saddle and doing well. I'm pretty sure he holds the lap record at Daytona on an S1Krr.

    I always thought the snorkel rule was weird. You aren't altering the air box, but the thinking is the snorkel is a stock item on oem.

    I know in jersey you had to go to tech with tools if you podiumed in ss.

    Re: Daytona 200 & CCS 2017

    From Cory on FB:
    There's a lot of talk and speculation going on about what happened yesterday in the Daytona 200. I rode my tail off and tried everything I could to win the race in a last lap battle with Danny Eslick. Everyone has their own opinion as to how I should've ridden that last lap but nobody truly knows my situation better than myself. I did what I thought was best and came up just a little bit short at the line. Tough break but I'm proud of the way I rode because I left everything out on the racetrack.
    As far as the DQ goes, myself and my team were under the impression that our bike was 100% legal. If people want to believe that we would try to create an unfair advantage by using a "cheater" air filter, then they are wrong. The truth will come out and the results will reflect the true decision of yesterday's race.
    But I am most happy with the way I rode and the fact that I got to share the podium with two of my best buddies in the racing paddock. Maybe we'll win it next year...

    Re: Daytona 200 & CCS 2017

    The reason the rules are a PITA is to keep Supersport from turning into Superbike lite. On the R6, the snorkel and airfilter are sold as a single part number, so... because the 'airfilter' includes that restriction, despite the fact that physically it's a separate piece, if you want to run SS you've got to maintain the restrictor either via a comparable aftermarket replacement ala BMC's SS legal airfilter kit, or by putting the OEM plate over your schwank looking but most likely flowing worse or filtering worse, maybe both K&N.

    There there are the year to year updates. The R6 in theory is the same bike since 2008 (Ignoring the Bold New Plastics 2016) but there have been year to year variations. I get the impression that West's machine had a OEM style restrictor plate but possibly from a different year machine, so it looks like it fits the letter of the rules but technically there isn't an allowance for updating or backdating most parts in SS... so if the VIN says 2012, you'd better have something that dimensionally is the same as what shipped on the 2012. This is why Moto America actually has a list of OEM part numbers that you MUST use if you want to run an R6 in MA, it brings all the intake/airbox bits up to the same spec matching current so machines from 2008 to 2015 behave the same. It'll be interesting to see how this all ends up playing out.

    And this whole time I thought the 200 was SB rules until all this went down.

    Cole had to strip his machine down a few years back. They have machined plugs for different years. if it goes thru too big = FAIL if they fit =O.K.

    Pics weren't that bad. Definitely a gruesome injury but with it all cleaned up wasn't terrible to see.

    Any word on how he crashed? I assume he was going at a good clip when he went down.
