It just finished without a trace of rally!
However, I was on Venice Beach last Tuesday when they were filming the fillers (the talkie bits between the video clips) and heard them say "That rally racing looks like exciting stuff!" It may be on tomorrow instead.

And Leann Tweeden is even hotter in the flesh!!!!!!

It was the third segment on the 54321 episode that aired here in Tulsa. I got it recorded ... Good stuff.

If somebody with some bandwidth to burn can get the segment up on a server, I'd like to see it after I get back from Maine.

I see it is on 3 times today (Thursday). Set to record them all in case one of them is a repeat of that episode, which I would expect is the case.

Those motorcycles ?dudes? included Travis Pastrana?..arguably the best Free Style Motorcycle rider. Two years ago Travis expressed an interest in Rally after hanging out with Tommi Makinen. I think Travis got to drive one of the WRC cars. In the 2000 Anaheim Super Cross race program, Travis had a quote regarding rally where he said it was the best sport on earth and how crazy it was! Travis recently retired from racing Super Cross (at age 19 or 20!!?.forgot how old he is) and has mentioned on numerous occasions in major motorcross magazines, that he will be pursuing a career in ?driving?. I wouldn?t be surprised if we see him in a car next year and if he can drive like he rides??.oh man, spectators better be ?light? on their feet!

I bet he even hangs out on this Forum?..Travis you here?

edit - taken from a recent Racer X interview -

(Int)- Will you race in a car or a bike?
(Travis) - "Race in a car."

(Int) - I know you have a rally jones, so to speak, and even go to go to England and drive a little bit.
(Travis) - "Yeah, for sure, I would really like to do that now, so maybe I?ll just get it out of my system and come back for the supercross season next year."
