Chad Reed wins Dallas Supercross …. Ryan Villopoto gets first Supercross Lites victory





Supercross: After two weekends off from racing, the 2006 AMA Supercross Series returned to action tonight. And Yamaha’s Chad Reed, riding the YZ 450 four-stroke, won the 20 lap main event. It’s Chad’s second victory of the year, and he’s only two behind RC in the championship chase.



James Stewart, riding for Team Kawasaki, finished in the runner-up position, even though he fell & had to restart his motor. James was in the lead when he fell.



Nick Wey, top privateer in this year’s series, had another great race, finishing in third.



Defending Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael had the holeshot, and led the race early on. After he was passed by Stewart for the lead, RC bobbled and fell. He eventually got back into action, finishing in sixth position, and garnering a very important 15 points toward the championship.



There are only two races left in the season: Seattle & Vegas. Ricky Carmichael leads the championship chase with 296, Chad Reed is second with 294, and James Stewart is third with 286!



Reed said “It was a tough track tonight. You had to be on your game. I figured out my line in the whoops before these (Carmichael and Stewart) guys did. The whoops were really tough. I’ve been working hard … if I put myself in a good position the next two weeks, the title is possible.”



Supercross Lites: The West series got going again after being off since mid-February. Ryan Villopoto, riding for Team Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki, won the first supercross of his career tonight. Ryan led all 15 laps. Second place went to Team Honda’s Andrew Short, and Grant Langston, team-mate of Villopoto, finished in third place. Short and Langston are the two main contenders for the championship series. Andrew leads Grant by four points heading into their final round in Seattle next weekend.
