Windham wins first AMA Supercross race since ’05

Torco Fuels Honda’s Kevin Windham won his first Monster Energy® AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, race at Reliant Stadium since 2005 in front of 49,986 fans. Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Austin Stroupe won the first Western Regional AMA Supercross Lites race of his career.

Red Bull Honda’s Davi Millsaps won the US$ 1,500 Progressive Holeshot Award with Monster Energy® Kawasaki’s Tim Ferry in tow through turn one. Points leader Chad Reed went through turn one near the middle of the pack. While leading, Millsaps crashed and Windham moved into the lead and never looked back. Reed, who rides for Team San Manuel, moved into second place on lap 11 and couldn’t catch Windham. Reed finished second and Ferry finished third.
"I have been working hard this year, and tonight it paid off," said Windham. "I could not have won in front of a better crowd. I put my head down tonight and used the crowd to my advantage. The crowd was on their feet for the entire race."
"This is a tough pill to swallow," said Reed. "I gave it everything I had tonight, but Kevin (Windham) rode a great race. We have had a good season, and we will have to put it together in Atlanta next weekend."

Rockstar Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey won the US$ 1,000 Progressive Holeshot Award as he led Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Brett Metcalfe and Lawrence through turn one. Metcalfe passed Dungey for the lead but was re-passed on the opening lap. Moments after moving into the number-one position, Dungey crashed and fell back several positions and allowed Lawrence to assume the lead. Two laps later Dungey suffered another crash.

On lap five Stroupe, who is a rookie this season, moved past Lawrence for the lead and held on for the next 10 laps.
"I finally had a decent start, and that helped me in the beginning of the race," said Stroupe. "I put myself in position to stay up front and that’s what I did."
