450 Supercross Class: James Stewart battled closely with Chad Reed early on, but eventually was able to put a little breathing room on Chad, and was tonight’s winner of the 20 lap main event. Chad was really giving James a run for his money in the beginning of the race, but did end up at the finish in second place. Third place tonight went to Torco Honda’s number 14, Kevin Windham. Notes; Grant Langston DNF due to what was reported to be a broken shock absorber.
250 Supercross Lites West Division: This class really put on the ‘race’ on the night, with multiple lead changes, lots of action, and lots of passing. Jake Weimer holeshot, but then Ryan Dungey and Broc Hepler got by him. Then Hepler passed Dungey … Dungey passed Hepler back …. Hepler passed Dungey back … Dungey passed Hepler back …. Hepler passed Dungey back … then Dungey passed Hepler right back …. it was great racing! Dungey bobbled, then Hepler took over the lead again. But then Hepler goes down! At the finish, it was Jake Weimer winning, Ryan Dungey second, Brett Metcalfe third, and Broc Hepler fourth.
