450 Supercross Main Event: Yamaha’s Josh Hill scored his first ever 450 Supercross Main Event win tonight!
Second place went to ‘hometown’ rider Ryan Dungey, riding for Suzuki. Both riders are considered ‘youngsters’ in the 450 class, because previous years they raced in the “Lites” class. Plus, both riders are not even old enough to drink legally in most states!
Kevin Windham finished third, and he moves just a little bit closer to Chad Reed in the championship point standings.
Chad, who turned 26 today, was running in second position until the halfway point, but fell at the end of a whoop section heading into a right hand corner, but eventually recovered for a seventh place finish. He leads Windham in the series point standings, 237 to 220.
250 Supercross Lites Main Event: Ryan Villopoto scored his first victory of the season in 15 lap 250cc Eastern Division Supercross Lites Main event. It was an exciting race, as Ryan made his first place position stick on the final lap, after battling with Josh Grant. The win moves Ryan into second in the point standings for the East as well.
Second place finisher in tonight’s main event was Josh Grant, third went to Martin Davalos. Series points leader Trey Canard finished fourth.
