Ryan Dungey officially has won the 2010 AMA Supercross Series Championship. If you look at the links below featuring Ryan, you’ll learn all about that.
In the first 250 West Qualifying Heat, it’s one of the top two contenders going for the West Supercross title – Trey Canard (38) winning the six lap race. Second goes to Josh Hansen (100), with Wil Hahn (49) third.
Next is the 250 West Heat 2 – and this race is won by Max Anstie (48)! Second Blake Wharton (21) and third Sean Borkenhagen (63). Series points leader for the 250 West, Jake Weimer (12) crashed in the first corner, but came back to qualify for the main with ninth place.
450 Supercross – Heat 1 – the premiere 450 Supercross class does eight laps for their Qualifying heats. The winner, by a large margin – number 14, Kevin Windham! Second goes to the new Supercross Champion, Ryan Dungey (5), and third place in this race is Kyle Chisholm (55). Number 22 Chad Reed finishes eighth.
The dirt on this Seattle Supercross track is soft. Which ultimately means rutted. Very difficult, especially as the races go on. There has been a lot of track maintenance to make sure it’s as good as can be under the conditions.
250 West Supercross Main Event – 15 laps. The track certainly is an issue. It’s just so soft and as the racing goes on, gets really rutted. The start of this race – Trey Canard looked to have the early lead … but he goes down … same for Max Anstie. Right now, you’ve got a bunch of guys not normally up front – up front! At the five lap mark, it’s Broc Tickle (20) leading, followed by Wil Hahn (49), Josh Hansen (100), Blake Wharton (21) and Ryan Morais (116).
Series points leader Jake Weimer (12) has moved into sixth, and his closest competitor in the West Regional Supercross Championship, Trey Canard (38), is tenth. Max Anstie (48) winner of heat 2, is in 15th position.
At the ten lap mark, Broc Tickle could be heading towards his first ever Lites 250cc Supercross win! Wil Hahn is second, … and Jake Weimer has moved all the way up to third! Canard is eighth.
At the end of this 15 lap Main Event race, Broc Tickle has won his first ever Lites 250 Supercross event! Wil Hahn finishes second! Jake Weimer puts in a strong ride to just about secure his first ever supercross title by finishing third! Max Anstie moved up nicely to get a ninth place, and Trey Canard finishes 11th.
Wil Hahn has moved past Trey Canard in the point standings. Jake Weimer only needs to finish 15th or better next weekend to clinch that 250 West Supercross title, even if Wil Hahn wins the race.
Broc Tickle said after his victory: The track was very technical tonight. The ruts are really gnarly, and I knew the race was just about being smart and putting 15 good laps together. I’m excited to get my first win, and I can’t thank the Seattle crowd enough.
Time for the ‘race’, the 450 Supercross 20 lap Main Event. Even though the Supercross Series Championship belongs to Ryan Dungey, there are still three big Main Events to go. And the guy that looked the best tonight, every time he was on the track, is looking the best in this Main Event – Kevin Windham!
Windham seems like he’s riding on a different track. He got the holeshot, his lap times are better than anyone’s, and, he’s pulling quite a big lead already.
At the end of 20 laps, the ‘veteran’ Kevin Windham has won the Seattle Supercross. He dominated all 20 laps! And he won by over an almost unheard of 20 seconds! Second place, and his best finish of the season, goes to Thomas Hahn. Third is Justin Brayton, fourth champ Ryan Dungey. Chad Reed finishes eighth.
Kevin Windham said: That was the gnarliest race I’ve ever ridden. The streak is over and it happened here in Seattle. It feels so good. I closed it out here in 2008 strong and I’m glad to do it again. I’ll tell you, as I get older, things like this are much harder to come by. Tonight was just about survival. I was glad I could keep it up on two wheels.
Attendance tonight was just under 52,000 persons. Next weekend the series moves to Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City!
