30.07.2007 AMA Motocross Championship in Washougal (USA) - Results

Tim Ferry wins first in six years at AMA Toyota Motocross in Washougal

Timmy Ferry (Kawasaki) picked up his first win in six years before a crowd of 26,342 at the Unbound Energy National, round eight of the AMA Toyota Motocross Championship. New Zealander Ben Townley (Kawasaki) claimed his fourth AMA Motocross Lites overall victory of the season.

Ferry used two second-place finishes and some fortunate happenings in the close of the second moto to capture his first overall victory since a 2001 win at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino (California). With Grant Langston (Yamaha) safely out front in moto two, Ferry’s teammate James Stewart (Kawasaki) was in position to capture the overall win before a late-race crash ended his day and handed the win to Ferry.
Langston, who finished fourth in the first moto, wound up finishing second overall while Andrew Short (Honda) was third with a 3-4 moto finish. Stewart was carted off the track by the medical crew with an apparent injured knee. His status was unknown at the time of this release.
"I was doing the math (on who was going to win the overall) as we were getting close to the end but still didn’t realize that I had won when we came off the track," said Ferry, who now trails Stewart by just seven points in the AMA Motocross class standings. "(The point’s race) is definitely something to think about now. I’ve never been in this position before but I’m confident and looking forward to the final four races of the season."

After wining the first moto, Villopoto was in position for the overall win before a terrible start in moto two placed him at the back of the pack while Townley sprinted to the lead.
