Just wondering if anyone else thinks this is a "trend" that should be looked at by Race Officials.
I saw the chute deal too, weird. The PS motorcycle, I think they are marking the track (at the bar wheel) when the bike is staged and they do it rather quickly, it does look like they're grabbing something. I noticed it too.
