Chad Reed Wins AMA Supercross At Dodger Stadium

LOS ANGELES, CA, JAN. 21 - TwoTwo Motorsports' Chad Reed won tonight's AMA Monster Energy Supercross final at Dodger Stadium, the Australian taking the lead from fast-starter Jake Weimer on the fifth lap and pulling away to a 2.98-second win over Red Bull KTM's Ryan Dungey

Chad Reed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It took two starts to get this one in the books as Muscle Milk's Trey Canard and Ryan Morias crashed hard on the opening lap of the first go. The crash was a bad one with both riders needing medical attention on the track - thus a red flag brought a stoppage to the race. After a delay of some 15 minutes while Canard and Morais were being attended to, the race was restarted. Initial reports after the race were that Canard was shaken up but not badly injured. No word yet on Morais. Updated reports on Sunday morning, however, say that Canard suffered a back injury and underwent surgery on Saturday night while Morais suffered a broken jaw.

 

On the restart, Reed rebounded from his heat-race tip-over to get a third-place start, moving past JGR Yamaha's James Stewart to take over second on the third lap. A lap later and he was on Weimer, making the pass for the lead on the fifth lap. There was no denying the Honda rider from that point on as he pulled a gap that he maintained to the finish -taking his first win of the 2012 season.

"I've been bashing my head against the wall trying to figure out what the hell I've been doing wrong this year," Reed said. "I switched to a tire that I used last year and it worked. I am going to keep trying to get better each week. I will take the good with the bad and keep moving forward. First and foremost I want to give a huge shout out to those two guys that crashed out. It was a tough night for everyone. It was a tough night for big red. I'm glad that we could put the Bel-Ray Honda out front and I hope those two guys recover pretty good."

 

Dungey, meanwhile, was fourth when Reed took over at the front and he was in the catbird seat when Stewart made an aggressive pass on Weimer that knocked the Monster Energy Kawasaki to the ground. Dungey was hounding Stewart when the Yamaha man crashed on the 11th lap. From there, Dungey was able to cruise unmolested to second.

 

Stewart found himself with his hands full in the final laps. Monster Energy's defending series champion Ryan Villopoto was dead last for the second week in a row after a first-turn crash - and for a second race in a row he again showed that he's currently the fastest rider in the field. Villopoto motored through the field and had Stewart in his sights, challenging him for third on the final lap. Despite setting the fastest lap of the race on the last lap, Villopoto came up short and had to settle for fourth.

 

Fifth place went to Yoshimura Suzuki's Brett Metcalfe, the Australian 1.6 seconds ahead of JGR Yamaha's Davi Millsaps. Hart & Huntington's Josh Hansen ended up seventh with Monster Energy Pro Circuit's Broc Tickle eighth, Geico Honda's Kevin Windham ninth and MotoConcepts Mike Alessi 10th.

 

The top five in the final were all on different makes of motorcycle - Honda, KTM, Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki.

 

With three rounds in the books, Dungey leads the title chase by four points over Reed and Villopoto, 67-63. Stewart is fourth in the series standings, 19 points behind Dungey. Weimer, who recovered to finish 11th after his run-in with Stewart, drops into a tie with Stewart for fourth. Windham is sixth with 43 points.

 

The Lites final was all about Eli Tomac, the Geico Honda rider storming to a 15.4-second win over Monster Energy Pro Circuit's Dean Wilson. Tomac led out of the first corner and was never headed, pulling away to his first victory of the season. The win also put him in the championship points lead by a single point over Wilson, 63-62.

The points leader coming into Dodger Stadium, Tyla Rattray, ended up fourth in the final and drops to third in the title chase - though just three points behind Tomac.

 

"That was crazy. I stuck around in that first corner," Tomac said. "I rode a solid 15 laps like I should have the rest of the season. You can't compare when you get a good start - it's like night and day."

 

Wilson battled with Zach Osborne, finally getting the better of the GP rider on the 13th of 15 laps. Osborne held on to finish third - the first podium of his Supercross career - with Wilson second.

 

"Slipperiest track I've ridden this season," Wilson said. "Eli [Tomac] is going to be a tough competitor the whole season. He's really going fast."

 

With Rattray fourth, fifth went to LCQ winner Jason Anderson.

 

It was a tough night for defending race champion Cole Seely, the Troy Lee Designs Honda rider going down in the first corner with Nico Izzi and Matt Moss. Seely, who won round one in Angel Stadium, remounted to finish 15th.

 

Red Bull KTM's Marvin Musquin also had a tough main event. The Frenchman was catching the Wilson/Osborne battle when he crashed hard into a tough block. He pulled out, though he didn't suffer injury.

Supercross Race Results From Phoenix: Ryan Dungey Wins First Race Of 2012

By FTR on January 16, 2012 6:53 PM

by Jeff Gluck

So far, the 2012 AMA Monster Energy Supercross season has been good for dudes named Ryan. For that matter, so have the previous two seasons.

After defending series champion Ryan Villopoto opened his title defense with a win in Anaheim last week, Ryan Dungey captured Saturday night's main event at Chase Field in Phoenix.

Dungey moved to a new team this year (KTM) after winning the 2010 championship with Suzuki, and Saturday's victory was the first Supercross win for the organization. The Ryans – Dungey and Villopoto – are now tied atop the Supercross point standings after two rounds.

Jake Weimer – who finished fifth last week – earned a surprising runner-up finish while Villopoto was third. Villopoto's run was impressive, as he started in the back and came through the field.

Kevin Windham and Chad Reed rounded out the top five. James Stewart was eighth, marking his second consecutive disappointing result since joining Joe Gibbs Racing's SX team.

Trey Canard made his return to the circuit after a broken collarbone (he missed last week's opener) and finished eighth.

The series moves to Dodger Stadium next Saturday night.

Here are the full results from Saturday night's Supercross race in Phoenix:

  1. Ryan Dungey
  2. Jake Weimer
  3. Ryan Villopoto
  4. Kevin Windham
  5. Chad Reed
  6. Andrew Short
  7. Trey Canard
  8. James Stewart

http://www.amasupercross.com/

AURORA, Ill. (May 6, 2011) – Feld Motor Sports® announced today the 2012 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, schedule, featuring the tour’s newest stop on April 14 at Louisiana’s Superdome in New Orleans.

Fresh off the heels of the greatest season ever, the 2012 Monster Energy Supercross schedule is the foundation for next season’s highly touted racing championship. Once again the championship will begin at supercross’ home plate, Angel Stadium, on January 7 and conclude at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on May 5, where the champion will be crowned.

Cross Club members will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase tickets on May 9-10. Following the Cross Club opportunity an Online-only offer will be available on May 11-12. Tickets will be on-sale nationally May 13. Due to the renovations at the Louisiana Superdome, tickets will not be available until July 18. Joining the Cross Club is free and can be done by clicking here: http://www.supercrossonline.com/crossclub/

Monster Energy Supercross’ last stop in New Orleans was in 2009 when Team San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart won the main event en route to his second Supercross class championship.

“The 2012 Monster Energy Supercross schedule is the map to the coveted championship trophy,” said Todd Jendro, senior director of two-wheel operations, Feld Motor Sports. “While 2011 is the greatest season ever, it is a primer for 2012. The returning veterans and the youthful challengers are the perfect blend for a parity-driven championship.”

“The 2011 season once again proved that the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, is a real thriller,” said FIM President Vito Ippolito. “Who would have thought that heading into Las Vegas, the championship would be so close? Supercross remains the excellent showcase for FIM motor sports that it always was and keeps the fans on their toes throughout the entire Championship. It is still the FIM’s wish to take Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship global. Still, we are pleased to see that there are once again 17 events on the 2012 calendar and we can start to count down the days separating us from the first race in Anaheim on January 7, 2012."

"As 2011 proved, the Monster Energy Supercross championship has always been about combining the best racers on the planet and one of the most accessible and fan-friendly stadium-based events you'll see anywhere" said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. "For 2012, we're proud to work with our promotional partner, Feld Motor Sports, to deliver the exciting racing, compelling stories and intense thrills of supercross to fans and new audiences worldwide."

Anaheim Supercross 2012

Anaheim Supercross Results: 2012 Season Opener Goes To Ryan Villopoto

by Jeff Gluck

Defending AMA Monster Energy Supercross champion Ryan Villopoto got off to a fast start and never looked back in winning the first round of the 2012 season in Anaheim on Saturday night.

Villopoto, who also won last year's season opener, pulled away to a 12.2-second victory as his championship rivals battled behind him.

"This race doesn't mean everything, but I was just glad to get out of the gate clean in that race," the Kawasaki rider told Speed's broadcast. "I got through the first turn safe, and then I just tried to put in smooth, clean laps and just pull away."

The real fight for most of the race was for second and third place. Chad Reed crashed while running second and opened the door for Ryan Dungey and James Stewart, but Reed ultimately kept his composure for a runner-up result.

"I'm so happy to get out of here with a second," he said. "I was fighting myself all day today to try and get motivation to come out here and ride this track."

The same couldn't be said for Stewart, who was riding in his first race with Joe Gibbs Racing.

With five laps to go, Stewart was battling with Dungey for third place but made a tremendous mistake and misjudged his landing. Stewart crashed into the barrier and damaged his bike, letting Dungey and several other competitors get by.

Dungey was third, followed by Justin Brayton – who made the main event via the last chance qualifier – and Jake Weimer.

Stewart ended up finishing sixth when he could have had a podium result.

"The track was just tough," Stewart said. "I'm not really that frustrated. ... We've got 16 more races. I know a lot of things can happen."

Villopoto leads the Monster Energy Supercross standings by three points over Reed and five over Dungey.

Here are the full AMA Supercross results from Saturday night's main event in Anaheim:

 

  1. Ryan Villopoto
  2. Chad Reed
  3. Ryan Dungey
  4. Justin Brayton
  5. Jake Weimer
  6. James Stewart
  7. Andrew Short
  8. Kevin Windham
  9. Mike Alessi
  10. Josh Hansen
