    If Voodoo was flying at 480mph, and Czech Mate was flying at 450mph, how long in time and how many laps would it take for Voodoo to pass Czech Mate.

    Geez man, doesn't matter how it happened but it did and there's no taking that away from Smoot and the team. Those guys were in front of Dreadnaught all week which was an awesome achievement. Add taking on and passing the Bear (who has always been a favorite of mine) is just icing on the cake. Give some credit where credit due. No need to rain on anyone's parade. Go Team Czech Mate!

    No doubt. I was cheering and hooting along with everyone else on the fence when the pass happened right in front of us. It was a big deal. Even for us Bear fans!
