Recap

450 Supercross Main Event: Chad Reed showed why he has been the dominant rider this season, winning his sixth event of the year, and extending his series points lead over Kevin Windham, 209 to 175. Chad dominated all 20 laps of the main, making it look easy.

Second place went to Yamaha’s Josh Hill. A ‘Lites’ rider until just a few months ago, Josh really seems to have found his groove on the bigger 450cc bikes.

Third place – Team Honda Red Bull’s Andrew Short, with Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey, riding in his first ever 450 event, finishing fourth. Kevin Windham finished fifth.

250 East Main Event: Trey Canard was the early leader. One third of the race in, Ryan Villopoto, running in second, fell while making a pass against Canard. Branden Jesseman, riding for Pro Circuit Kawasaki, went into the lead for a very brief time – until he stalled, putting Canard back into the lead. Meanwhile, Villopoto got going again around ninth position.

Canard, a rookie riding on the Torco Honda team, maintained his lead all the way to the checkered flag at the end of the 15 lap main. Canard has won both of the supercross races of the East series so far – and they are the first two AMA supercross events of his professional career!

Ryan Villopoto worked all the way back to second at the finish, with Suzuki supercross rookie Nico Izzi finishing third.

Notes: Tim Ferry out because of injury due to a practice fall earlier in the week. Last week’s 450 winner Davi Millsaps was running up near the front, but a crash relegated him to a 17th place finish. Attendance was announced at just over 57,000 fans. This was the last supercross to be held in the RCA Dome, as next year the Indianapolis Colts (and supercross) will move into a brand new stadium.
