Round 11 of the AMA National Motocross Championships at Steel City. It’s down to the finale next weekend for the MX Championship between series points leader and Supercross Champion Ryan Villopoto v. defending MX Champion and 2010 Supercross Champion Ryan Dungey. Ryan Villopoto won both motos today, Dungey second in both motos. Villopoto has 14 point lead as they head to Pala for final round. Dean Wilson sweeps both motos, and is crowned 2011 AMA National Motocross Champion in the 250 MX Lites class!
The facility here at Steel City reminds us a little bit of the facility last week in Southwick, in that the promoter continually makes improvements to an already nice facility. The weather this morning has been perfect – sunny and warm, and somewhat humid.
In timed practice for Motocross Class the top two competitors in the series have the top two quickest lap times! Ryan Villopoto on top with 2 minutes 25 seconds, and Ryan Dungey next at 2 minutes 28 seconds. Last week’s winner, Brett Metcalfe was third with 2 minutes 29 seconds. Fourth thru tenth out of the 82 racers attempting to race – Nico Izzi (yes, riding a 450 Yamaha), Justin Barcia, Chad Reed, Mike Alessi, Les Smith, Jake Weimer, and Justin Brayton.
