Shocker in St. Louis





The three main players in supercross 2006, Ricky Carmichael, James Stewart, and Chad Reed, all had a significant role in tonight’s action from St. Louis.



Let’s start with defending supercross champion Ricky Carmichael. He fell hard in his heat race, pulled off the track, and had to transfer to the main event by winning a semi. In the main, RC fell, and eventually pulled off the track – DNF – something broken in the rear suspension. Carmichael does score one point for 20th position. He goes from first to second now in the point standings.



Next, James Stewart. With Carmichael out of the 20 lap main event, Stewart had the opportunity to make up ground, and possibly take the lead in the points chase. Halfway thru the race, James was in third position – then he crashed. He stalled it, and couldn’t get it started, eventually finishing in 17th position. James goes from second to third position in the points chase.



And Chad Reed, riding the Yamaha YZ 450 machine, wins his first main event of the year! He passed Ivan Tedesco at the halfway point of the race, and held the lead until the end. Chad’s ‘never give up’ attitude has served him well – he leads the point standings now with 149 points!



Ivan Tedesco had his best finish of the year as well, with second place. Ernesto Fonseca finished third for his best finish of the season too.



The Eastern division of the Lites began their series tonight. As expected, Team Honda newcomer Davi Millsaps was up front, and he took the win in the 15 lap main event. A very happy Chris Gosselaar, riding for Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki, finished second. And 2003 125 East Supercross Champion Branden Jesseman, riding for Yamaha of Troy, finished in third place.



Notes: Suzuki’s Broc Hepler did not race tonight. He suffered a foot injury in practice a few weeks ago, and was not fit enough to compete. Fastest lap times were just over 50 seconds. Crowd attendance was over 52,000.
