Results, points and more coming ….

Rain, Sand, & Mud at Southwick

250 Moto 1 – It was a battle in the first race of the day, with the main guys up front being Justin Barcia, Ryan Dungey, and Blake Wharton. Series points leader Chris Pourcel was initially back outside of the top ten.

At the end of the moto, it would be ‘rookie’ Justin Barcia capturing the win. Ryan Dungey in second, Blake Wharton third …. and Christophe Pourcel walking away from his bike in the mud, officially scoring 27th position. BIG change of events in the point standings with only three motos left in the season! Dungey goes from 13 points down to nine points ahead of Pourcel!

250 Moto 2 – a lot of ‘top’ guys crash on the first lap, some of which included Ryan Dungey, Christophe Pourcel, Blake Wharton, and Justin Barcia. At the end of the first lap it’s Tyla Rattry leading, followed by Brett Metcalfe and Jake Weimer. Dungey is 14th, Barcia 17th, B Wharton 30th, and Christophe Pourcel 32nd.

At the halfway point of the 30 minute plus two lap moto, it’s Tyla Rattray leading, Brett Metcalfe is second, Taylor Futrell, number 977 on a Honda third, then Ryan Sipes in fourth. Dungey is in fifth, Barcia right behind in sixth. Pourcel is 13th.

As they near the end of the race, Dungey and Barcia keep making progress …. at the end of the 16 lap race, it’s Tyla Rattray with his first moto win in America! (And combine that with a sixth in the first moto – Tyla makes a strong comeback statement today – 2nd overall!) Brett Metcalfe is second, Barcia passes Dungey on the last lap to get third. Dungey finishes fourth, then followed by Ryan Sipes, Tommy Searle, Tyler Futrell, Blake Baggett, and Jake Weimer. Pourcel finishes in 11th postion.

The overall winnner on the day, and it’s his first ever AMA National Motocross overall victory, with a 1/3 finish – Justin Barcia!

And dramatically changing the points standings today by coming in with a deficit but leaving with the championship points lead – Ryan Dungey!

It’s Round 7 of the WMA (Women’s Motocross) today at Southwick too! Check the women’s mx results here!

450 Motocross moto 1 – After things settle, it’s 450 Motocross National Champion Chad Reed out front. And he made this race just like a lot of the previous races – he won : ) Second in this moto goes to Jake Moss, third place is Michael Byrne. Three guys from Australia on top!

450 Motocross heat 2 – early leader is Andrew Short, but Chad Reed is able to make a move and positions himself in first. At the five lap mark, it’s Reedy in first, Matt Goerke, is now in second place, Short is third, then Michael Byrne, Ivan Tedesco, and John Dowd!

At the start of lap ten, Chad Reed crashes. It’s now Matt Goerke in first! John Dowd is second! Michael Byrne is third, followed by Jake Moss.

As they complete the final lap, it’s Matt Goerke, riding for the Yamaha team, winning his first ever AMA National moto! John Dowd, riding a Kawasaki, finishes second! Michael Byrne is third. And the overall winner in the 450 Motocross class today? Matt Goerke! It’s Matt’s first ever overall victory in AMA Motocross as well! Second overall, with 3/3 finishes – Michael Byrne. And third overall, with 10/2 finishes – John Dowd! 44 year old, only races one national a year – John Dowd!

An unlikely day at Southwick. Pourcel loses 250 points lead. Dungey takes a nice 250 points lead now. Justin Barcia wins his first ever AMA 250 Motocross. Chad Reed crashes hard enough in second moto to not get back into the race. Matt Goerke, riding for Factory Yamaha, wins his first ever AMA 450 National Motocross, and John Dowd schools a bunch of riders half his age!

Notes: The next and final round of the 2009 AMA National Motocross Series is next Saturday in Steel City / Delmont PA.

Fans Encouraged to Join Riders in a Show of Support by Wearing PINK

After a successful first event in 2008, the Steel City breast cancer fundraiser returns to the season finale for 2009, highlighted by The

Mystery Rider Auction. With top name riders like Ryan Dungey, Andrew Short, Ryan Villopoto and Ashley Fiolek all donating their exclusive mystery items, the auction is sure to be a hit with the fans. These charitable riders will not only be donating an item but will also match the sale price of their item up to $1000.00 in support for the cure. The auction is scheduled to take place during the intermission between the first and second set of motos.

In addition to the auction, a variety of other activities are scheduled for the Labor Day fund-raising event. A raffle will be held throughout race day on September 5th at the Breast Cancer booth. Fans will have the opportunity to win exclusive autographed memorabilia donated by athletes and supporters of the industry. Raffle winners will be announced prior to the final moto of the day. Those who attend the event wearing an item of Pink clothing will be awarded one free raffle ticket. Additionally, fans can show their support by wearing a limited edition Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship Bracelet, available for pickup at the Breast Cancer and Lucas Oil booths.

All proceeds from the fundraiser support the Philadelphia Breast Cancer 3-day Walk, a 60-mile walk to raise money in the fight against the disease. The net proceeds will support the combined efforts of the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust (NPT) Breast Cancer Fund in their mission to fund access to care and a cure for breast cancer.

Stop by the Breast Cancer booth in the sponsor village for more info and to show your support!

Info courtesy MXSports-SPEED TV will present three hours of Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship coverage tonight!

Beginning at 8 p.m. ET, the super competitive 250 Class race from Budds Creek will kick-off an evening of the world’s premier motocross racing. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Christophe Pourcel and Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey are in the midst of a major battle for the series championship, but a determined Jake Weimer had plans of his own.

Immediately following the Budds Creek 250 race at 9 p.m. ET, SPEED will present the first of two same-day coverage broadcasts from Saturday’s Moto-X 338 Motocross National in Southwick, Mass. The 250 Class and its aforementioned title fight take center stage for the first time in 2009.

At 10 p.m. ET, newly-crowned 450 Class Champion Chad Reed looks for his sixth overall victory of the season and a continued dominance of the premier class aboard his Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki. However, Honda Red Bull Racing teammates Andrew Short and Ivan Tedesco are in the midst of a tight battle for the runner-up position in the standings and know a win would help solidify their efforts. Throw in Southwick legend John Dowd as a special guest competitor and the stage is set for a possible upset victory.

Same-day coverage of the race will feature each class for the first time in 2009. SPEED will present the 250 Class beginning at 9 p.m. ET immediately followed by the 450 Class at 10 p.m.
