04.09.2006 AMA Motocross Championship - Results from Delmont (USA)

Ricky Carmichael flies to 9th win of the season at Steel City

Ricky Carmichael (Suzuki) put on another riding clinic last Sunday in capturing his ninth win of the season at the Monster Energy/Kawasaki Steel City National, round 11 of the 12-race Toyota AMA Motocross Championship. Broc Hepler (Suzuki) picked up his third straight AMA Motocross Lites overall win.
Carmichael, who clinched his 10th AMA Motocross Championship last round, made it look easy on a track that had been soaked the previous day by a local rain storm, cruising to a sweep of both motos. He continues to rewrite the record book as the 26-year old from Tallahassee, Fla. registered a record 70th AMA Motocross overall win.

James Stewart (Kawasaki), of Haines City, Fla., turned in a solid 2-2 performance, good for second overall. Kevin Windham (Honda), of Centreville, Miss., was third (3-4).
"It’s been amazing and I appreciate everything that’s happened in my career," said Carmichael, who made his professional debut at Steel City Raceway in 1996. "I’ve been so busy (throughout out my career) and pulled at all angles, so I can look back and really enjoy what I’ve accomplished."
In addition to the race win, Carmichael also clinched the Monster Energy/Kawasaki Triple Crown of Motocross top prize of ,000 and a Kawasaki KLX110, which is awarded to the Motocross class rider who takes home the overall win at the following Toyota AMA Motocross Championship rounds: High Point; Red Bud; and Steel City.
Hepler, from nearby Kittanning, Pa., continued his winning ways with a crowd-pleasing moto sweep. Ryan Villopoto (Kawasaki), of Poulsbo, Wash., finished second with a 3-2 moto finish and extended his lead to 29 points over Mike Alessi (KTM), of Victorville, Calif., who finished fifth (6-4). Josh Grant (Honda), of Riverside, Calif., was third (2-3).
