This photo of Grant Langston and James “Bubba” Stewart was shot by Garth’s brother, Brett Milan, and was destined for yesterday’s Monday’s Kickstart column. But in an amazingly twisted and tragic tale of airport travel, broken laptops (both Brett’s and Skip Norfolk’s), a missing memory card, and various missed voice mails, it didn’t get to us until today.
The good news is, it’s finally here. The first turn contact at Binghamton caused Grant (who’s leading the 125cc title chase) to crash, and has generated plenty of bench racing chatter. After soil sampling, Grant put in a great ride to finish 10th in the moto, while James won his 11th straight moto since returning from injury. The good news is, it looks like the title chase between Grant, his teammate Ryan Hughes, and Bubba is going down to the last moto of the year, and that’s the way it should be.
