Once everyone is past the first turn that is the running order. Line them up don’t drop another gate

Staggered start if one lap is complete.

depends, if the rider(s) you support had average or bad result because of the restarts then that should not be the reason for change....conversely, rider(s) you dont like had great results should not be a reason for change.

Why are they not good rules?

I agree if a lap is completed you have a set running order that has went through timing and scoring. I don't see the reason for a full restart at that point.

Nope just an observation about the OPs comment that it sucks for him having a restart, never mind the injured rider.

I like it changes things up. What happens at your local track? Drop gate restart. I think the rules are pretty good the way they are throws something different in there to see from time to time.

That last restart changed a lot. On a positive note. Good to see the AMA following the rules that are inside the rule book.

Staggered start is only way after first lap. Now it just ruined races.

Pretty hard to say it wouldn't have affected the results tonight quite drastically.

Like anything in racing it can go either way but I wouldn't be surprised if it's a rule that gets changed to 1-lap down equals a formation start sooner or later.

Cheers, Crush

By restarting an entire race you're turning one guys bad luck into another guys good luck. Sucks that Blose went down but we were robbed of a potentially awesome race with Ken and ET buddies in the pack!

If talk is cheap, silence must be expensive because nobody can afford it!

I really would like to see the logic behind three laps. It doesn’t make sense. The first restart absolutely you rerack them. It was a crash off the start and they hadn’t even went through every section yet. But the second one I don’t understand why that would be a case where it makes any sense at all to do a complete rerack.

Not sure why they red flagged for Bogle. With where he was at there was no reason they couldnt have the flag for them to just slow down in that part of the track.

That one was more frustrating to me than Blose in the whoops. I think two things need to happen, they need to be more selective about putting out the red flag (bogle incident), and if it is after 1 lap I would go to single file restart like mentioned above.

I am a Tomac fan but he really got the short end of the stick on the restarts and Anderson got screwed too.

I think the Bogle red flag was warranted. You couldn't see the medical team and downed rider from the turn before the little double/step off. You can wave the wheels on the ground flag all you want but history has shown some people don't see it. Gotta keep the downed rider and medics safe.

It seems like the officials are erring on the side of caution this year when it comes downed riders and throwing the red flag...which is a good thing in my opinion.

I don't see anything wrong with what they did last night for several reason:

1. Rider, Medical, and Track crew safety was the priority
2. The rules are clear and they followed the rules

I’d guess a red flag and restart is better than riding around an injured rider for 11 laps. Or just leaving the injured rider laying beside the track (Ask Marty Smith, Houston 1978, about that).

True enough the second start does not duplicate the order of the first start, but it is part of the game we play.

It was interesting how on both of the races that got red flagged Tomac was ahead of roczen (and in first in the first one) and when they restarted roczen was out front again both times. Always helps to have a little luck on ur side even though he was riding great 😎
