However, if you are suggesting I mentioned the Amsoil-Stihl battle, which I covered (on my own time, thanks, for speedonthewater and offshoreonly) because Bob Teague is a colleague, you're wrong on at least two fronts.
First, heading into Sunday's race Amsoil and Sthil were tied in points and separated by seconds, which was the way Sunday's race ended. By several accounts, and I spoke to multiple sources, it was one of the best races of the event, as was the Mapei-Talbot battle.
Second, when Stihl won on Wednesday I went straight to owner J.R Noble, who was gracious, for his take and quote.
Regarding Cintron versus CMS: After Friday's results, Sunday was still anyone's race. Cintron went with the tactic of turning down the boost and making its engines last. CMS went out hard with full power and showed, at least in the first couple of laps, what that kind of power can do with an average 120 mph on its first lap. Despite that CMS dropped out of the final race with just five laps completed, it was engaging from the perspective of tactics, which really matter in a three-race format.
Paradise ... my commentary did, in fact, have a theme of unity—that being unity among the racers, who at the end of the day are all that really matter. You might disagree with my opinion based on my experience covering the sport and that I do respect. But do everyone a favor and save the insults and personal attacks. They serve no one and, more important, do nothing to advance the discussion.
