Indy Supercross – Lucas Oil Stadium

The 450 Supercross Main Event? Once again, the top two riders in the world going at it! Chad Reed and James Stewart! Chad is the defending AMA/FIM Supercross Champion, and James has recently taken over the points lead with his seventh win in a row last weekend in Atlanta. Tonight – Chad comes out on top of the 20 laps main event, with James second. They are now tied on points with 199 each as they head to the Daytona Supercross by Honda next Saturday! Tonight was Chad’s first win of the season as well. Third place and final spot on the podium? Mike Alessi! His best finish of the season too! He was super-pumped to get his first podium in 450 Supercross ever!

Chad Reed said after his first Supercross race win of the season “I just needed to put myself in a good position and battle for it. James made a little mistake and I was able to sneak through. I might move to Indy … you guys (here) are awesome … I felt like I was in my hometown in Australia! And it felt good to get a holeshot. The holeshot was sweet.”

James Stewart said “I felt good. I made a few mistakes. Chad rode awesome and he deserves to win. That was the funnest, and hardest race I’ve had all year!”

The 250 East Supercross class 15 lap main event win went to Austin Stroupe. Team-mate and points leader Christophe Pourcel finished second, and maintains his points lead. Third place went to Suzuki’s Nico Izzi.

Notes: First Supercross race in the new Lucas Oils Stadium. Jason Lawrence, Thomas Hahn, Ryan Sipes, and Justin Sipes are all supposed to be racing in the 450 Supercross class, although Jason Lawrence ended up not racing because of the flu – very ill. This track was designed by Mike LaRocco. Fastest guys were running lap times just under 50 seconds. The crowd was just over 61,000.
