Is Supercross Over? Don't be ridiculous...

Sure, the Big Title is wrapped up with two rounds remaining, but that doesn't mean this series is finished with putting on an exciting show of indoor motocross racing by some of the fastest motorcycle riders on the planet.

One of those guys, beyond any question, is Nick Wey, national number 27. Nick was a Team Green amateur champion back in the day, so it's really cool to see him get a chance back on Team Kawasaki.

Kevin Windham is also, without a doubt, one of the best motorcycle riders in the world. His ability to precisely control his bike and his savvy race craft are well-established and on top of that he's just fun to watch. 2010 has been a great year for Windham, and there are two more chances to see how he finishes this season.

Though still recovering from his injury, the outgoing Supercross champion showed up to sign autographs at Seattle. Two more rounds means two more opportunities for fans to meet James Stewart and share some kind words.

So even though the 2010 Monster Energy Supercross Series was remarkable in that on-track injuries sidelined the defending champion, the past champion AND one of the two-most-likely-to-become champions, resulting in the National Championship being suddenly decided by default with three races to go, when these guys hit the track next Saturday night there will be fast times to set, heat races to run and main events to win. Those that can race will be there. I think supercross fans will be there too.
