Stewart wins Houston Supercross, … Millsaps wins East Lites main & regional supercross championship …





Supercross Class: James Stewart is hot. He won his third supercross main event in a row, dominating the 20 lap main event (again) tonight. Ricky Carmichael is smart, and good enough. He raced to second place in the main, and that’s good enough to pull out an even larger lead over second place in the series championship. Chad Reed is consistent. Even with an injured shoulder, he put the Yamaha YZ 450 on the podium with a third place finish in the main.



The points battle between those top three remains close: Ricky Carmichael now has 281 points, Chad Reed is second with 269 points, and James Stewart third with 264 points. There are three rounds remaining in this 2006 AMA Supercross Series!



Supercross Lites East: Not only did Team Honda’s 18 year old phenom Davi Millsaps win the 15 lap main event, he also clinched the 2006 AMA East Regional Supercross Series. It’s Davi’s first professional championship. Second place tonight went to Thomas Hahn, who also rides a Honda. Third place went to Monster Energy Kawasaki Pro Circuit rider Chris Gosselaar.



Millsaps finishes the series with 166 points. Second goes to Chris Gosselaar with 134 points. Millsaps top competitor, Josh Grant, also riding a Honda, DNF (Did Not Finish) the main event in Houston, due to a fall. He ends up 3rd in the points championship.



Notes: Lap times were around 45 seconds for the fast guys. The series now takes it’s first break of the season, with action starting up again April 22 in Dallas, Texas. The West series regional division gets going again at that time. That championship has Andrew Short with 118, Grant Langston with 116, and then Nate Ramsey with 107. News on Ernesto Fonseca’s condition are now in the NEWS section, and will be on tomorrow evening’s THIS WEEK IN SUPERCROSS Podcast. Photos courtesy of Frank Hoppen.




This Week in Supercross audio podcasts come out Sunday evenings.
