16.07.2007 AMA Motocross Championship in Unadilla/New Berlin (USA) - Results

Windham wins 1st AMA Toyota Motocross in two Years

Windham opened the day with a win in the first moto and followed it up with a strong ride to a third place finish, earning him the overall victory, the 28th of his career. Timmy Ferry (Kawasaki) earned second place overall (5-1) with a come-from-behind win in moto two to finish second ahead of Honda’s Andrew Short (6-2).
"I’ve been known through my career to have a lot of throttle control, which you need at this track," said Windham. "I come into some of these hard-packed tracks with added confidence. I was riding behind Andrew (Short) and we were kind of closing in, but toward the end I kind of broke out the calculator and started doing the math and knew I could get the win."
The day got off to a poor start for James Stewart (Kawasaki), who crashed in the morning’s first practice, and was forced to sit out the remainder of the day. Stewart will be evaluated by his doctor this week and his status is uncertain for next week’s race.

Townley was put to the test in the second moto as the likeable New Zealand transplant needed to fight back to moto earn the overall victory. After an early-race crash, Townley set his sights on the Suzuki of Ryan Dungey, who was in second and in position for his first-ever overall win.
Townley worked his way through the field and pushed up to finish third, and combined with his first moto win, walked away with his third overall win of the season. Dungey was third with a 2-2 moto finish, while Jason Lawrence (Yamaha) was third (4-4).
