23.04.2006 AMA Supercross Series - Results from Dallas (USA)

Chad Reed and Ryan Villopoto wins in Dallas

Yamaha’s Chad Reed picked up a pivotal win tonight before a crowd of 45,445 at Texas Stadium, tightening the point standings with two rounds remaining in the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP/Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series. Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto won the AMA Supercross Lites main event.
In the AMA Supercross main event Ricky Carmichael (Suzuki) won the Progressive Direct Holeshot Award to start the 20-lap feature. Stewart advanced into the lead on lap four before trouble hit Carmichael, who went down in the whoops on lap five, eliminating any chance he had for a win. Stewart was starting to pull away from Reed when he too hit the dirt on lap eight, handing the lead to Reed. Once out front, Reed cruised to the easy win. Stewart charged back to finish second. Nick Wey (Honda) was third and Carmichael finished sixth.
"It was a tough track tonight; you really had to be on your game," said Reed, who registered his second win on the season. "I figured my line out in the whoops before these guys, and I was just sticking to it. Something was telling me it was going to get ugly. At this point I don’t even care about the title. I know if I put myself in good positions weekends then a title is possible."
Stewart leaves Dallas with a seven point lead over Carmichael in the standings of the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP. In the standings for the Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series, Carmichael now holds a two-point lead over Reed, with Stewart trailing by 10 points in third.
Ryan Villopoto (Kawasaki) won the Progressive Direct Holeshot Award to start the 15-lap AMA Supercross Lites main event. He shot to the front and began to build a sizable lead as series front runners Grant Langston (Kawasaki) and Andrew Short (Honda) were stuck in the back after poor starts. Villopoto built an eight-second advantage and held off the late race charge of Short to take the first win of his career. Honda’s Short finished second and Langston was third aboard a Kawasaki.
