David Millsaps scores first Supercross win of his career

Red Bull Honda’s Davi Millsaps won the first Monster Energy® AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, race at the Georgia Dome in front of 67,429 fans. In the first professional Eastern Regional AMA Supercross Lites race of his career, Torco Fuels Honda’s Trey Cannard led all 15 laps of the main event en route to the victory.

Team San Manuel’s Chad Reed jumped out of the gate and won the US$ 1,500 Progressive Holeshot Award with Millsaps and Team San Manuel’s Nathan Ramsey following in second and third respectively. While leading, Reed crashed before the finish line on lap six and re-mounted in 11th place. Millsaps assumed the lead while last week’s winner, Kevin Windham, moved into second place on lap six but was unable to reel in Millsaps. Red Bull Honda’s Andrew Short moved into third in the race and finished on the podium.
"I don’t like to take a win like this, but a win is a win," said Millsaps. "I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, so winning in front of them is huge, especially my first win in this class."

On lap six, Villopoto, while working his way through traffic, crashed once again and could not finish the race. On lap seven, KTM’s Martin Davalos passed Sipes for second place.
"I do not know what to say right now," said Cannard. "I have waited my whole life for this, and to get the win means so much to me. I had a great heat race and was ready for the main."
