Chad Johnson returns to his winning ways in Guthrie, OK

Chad Johnson returns to his winning ways in Guthrie, OK Shawn Clark receives gift from Travis Hodges for the AMA Arenacross Lites win

 AURORA, Ill., (Jan. 20, 2006) Yamaha rider Chad Johnson beat Honda rider Brock Sellards for the AMA Arenacross win at the Lazy E Arena.  Sellards got off to a good start with the Holeshot but before lap one was complete Chad's Junior Jackson Yamaha passed him and never looked back.  Sellards stayed with him for several laps but got caught in traffic and later went down in the toughest woops section of the year.  Sellards went on to finish second and team mate Jeff Northrop finished third.   The Guthrie crowd went crazy when local Kawasaki rider, Chad Cook took the Holeshot in the AMA Arenacross Lites class.  He would eventually give way to Shawn Clark and Travis Hodges and Dennis Jonon.  Hodges passed Clark near the halfway mark and started to check out before getting consumed in the woops section handing the Unbound Energy Kawasaki another win.
