Qwest Field





Stewart inches closer by winning, Reed & Carmichael tied! Langston West Division champ!





Supercross Main Event: James Stewart did what he had to do, and what everyone else wanted to do: win. James won the 15 lap main event.



Chad Reed did just as well, getting second place, and moving into a tie with Ricky Carmichael for the championship points chase lead.



Ricky Carmichael had a poor start, but collected himself well enough to finish third.



The 2006 AMA Supercross Series Championship all comes down to the final race next weekend in Las Vegas. Ricky Carmichael and Chad Reed are tied with 316 points, and James Stewart is only five off the pace with 311 points!



Stewart said “I was a little nervous after practice because we didn’t get to ride again (because of the rain and wet conditions). If I win next week in Vegas, and these other guys have problems, I have a chance. I’m not giving up. I’m going to do my best.”



Reed said “You make a pact with yourself (before the season starts when training) to do your best and see what happens in Vegas. I’m looking forward to Las Vegas … it should be fun. I’m going to do everything within my power to win that thing (title).”



Rain played an important part on the day, shortening practice and creating havoc with the track. The Supercross main event was shortened to 15 laps instead of the normal 20 laps, and the Lites main was shorted to 12 laps instead of the normal 15. Lap times were over 1 minute on the muddy track.



Supercross Lites West: Grant Langston won the main event, and with it, Grant becomes the 2006 AMA Supercross Lites Western Division Champion! He won last year’s Eastern Division championship as well. Grant also won the AMA 125 National Championship in 2003, and the FIM 125 World Motocross Championship in 2000.



Ryan Villopoto finished second tonight, and Jason Lawrence was third. Andrew Short, who led the West series championship coming into tonight’s race, had an evening of heart break – he bobbled in the main event, going off the track, eventually finishing in eighth place.




Special event next Friday night in Las Vegas as well – the third annual Mini Moto Supercross at the Orleans arena in Las Vegas. We’ll have more info on that Monday morning.
