11.02.2008 AMA Supercross Series in San Diego (USA) - Results
Team San Manuel’s Chad Reed (Yamaha) won his fourth consecutive Monster Energy® AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, race of the season at Qualcomm Stadium before 64,251 fans. Yamaha of Troy’s Jason Lawrence won his third consecutive Western Regional AMA Supercross Lites class race and advanced into the championship points lead.
Red Bull Honda’s Davi Millsaps jumped out to an early lead as he won the US$ 1,500 Progressive Holeshot Award. Reed followed Millsaps through turn one in second place and moved into the lead a few turns later. Millsaps struck back and held the lead until lap three when Reed secured the number-one position.

On lap 12, Reed crashed in turn one and Millsaps once again held the number-one position. Reed remounted and chased down Millsaps until lap 16 when he made the pass for the lead and rode off to his fifth win of the season and his fifth win at Qualcomm Stadium.
"I am so happy to get this win," said Reed. "I knew I needed to catch Davi after I fell. I have never won all of the races in California, and with this win tonight, I accomplished a new goal. I get to leave the west coast with a big points lead."
Monster Energy® Kawasaki’s Tim Ferry staged a late-race comeback and passed Millsaps on lap 13. It was Ferry’s first second-place finish of the season. Millsaps finished third.
