Recap

Kevin Windham wins 450cc supercross in Texas … his first win in three years! Austin Stroupe wins his first ever 250cc Western Lites Main.

450 Supercross class: Davi Millsaps was the early leader, but he crashed. Kevin Windham was then the leader, and he rode strongly all the way to the win in the 20 lap main event – no contest! It’s Kevin’s first victory in three years!

Second on the night went to series points leader Chad Reed, riding smartly to maintain his championship points lead, after not-so-great start. Third place went to Tim Ferry. Millsaps eventually worked his way back up to 8th place. Reed leads Windham in the series point standings, 169 – 137.

250 Western Division Lites class: There were three story-lines – Austin Stroupe, Jason Lawrence, and Ryan Dungey.

Austin Stroupe, a rookie riding for Team Pro Circuit Kawasaki, won his first ever supercross main event!

Jason Lawrence, who is battling with Ryan Dungey for the points lead, finished in second place, and has a six point lead over Dungey, as the Western Division has one round left to decide the championship between those two riders – the Seattle event in April. The West series takes a break until then, as the Eastern Division series gets going next Saturday night in Atlanta.

Dungey was an early leader in the race, but fell two times, eventually working his way back to fourth place.
