VIR Daytona Sportbike Race #1 Finish!!!!!

Did anyone see the first daytona sportbike race with Fong and Cardenes finishing dead even at the line 0.000? Cardenes won and they ended up being seperated by a pixel from a still pic the computer snapped when they crossed the line to determine who's wheel actually crossed the plane first. it was the closest finish in any race......ever, i think Greg White had said..it was kinda nuts!! they were saying it has something to do with where the trasponders were on the bike and the fact that cardenes crew had raked the front out a few mm to aid in handling. i don't catch to many of those races but that was a pretty good one.

I gotta say that was a great race for sure. Ive been banging on the AMA as of lately but that was a good race. Fong is due for that top spot soon.

I was confused on that as well but from what i understood...the transponders crossed at the exact same time BUT Cardene's bikes front wheel was a few mm ahead of Fongs in one of the pixels they looked at from the pic of the finish when they actually crossed the line. that dude swung around in the last corner and gave a new definition to the word "draft" in the last couple hundred feet to the line!!!!!!! Greg White was saying something about how Cardene's bike was setup in front that put his front wheel out just a few mm's more than Fongs or something like that? kinda strange i know BUT damn that was a good race!!
