13.06.2006 AMA Motocross Championship - Results from Southwick (USA)

Carmichael takes win at Southwick

Although his 2 – 1 moto finishes may not truly tell the story, Ricky Carmichael (Suzuki) pretty much dominated Southwick. Following James Stewart (Kawasaki) for almost ten laps in moto one, RC made his move and began to pull out some distance on James. Four laps and one crash later he was back in second – where he would finish out the moto.
"On the old, old finish line I got a good drive and my shock just blew through and g’d out - and I high sided. It took me a while to get going; my bike was lying on the wrong side, so I had to pick it up, get it up the hill, and get it cranked. I pretty much just took my time (to get going); I lost all my steam at that point – I was pretty upset" recalled RC.

In the second moto RC worked his way past leader Stewart just after lap six and checked out for the win.
"I wanted to be more aggressive; needed to make a pass a little earlier than I did in moto one. I felt I was getting caught up in his pace; and felt that if I could get a clear track, I could kind of do my thing" said Ricky about moto two.
Andrew Short (Honda) took his first overall win of the 2006 AMA Toyota Motocross Championships with a moto score of 1 - 4. Short was flat out flying in both motos. A somewhat decent start in moto one helped his cause; as he was able to pass Mike Alessi (KTM) for the lead around the midway point.
Moto two began a little harder for Short as he was outside the top ten in the opening laps. At mid point he began catching Mike Alessi in third, but Alessi seemed to wick it up enough to keep his distance.
"The second moto didn’t really go the way I wanted it to go, but I’m really excited to take the overall – it’s a good way to turn my season around. I’m looking forward to the remaining rounds" said Short.
