Honda’s Davi Millsaps just needed to stay out of trouble to clinch the
Amp'd Mobile Supercross Eastern Regional title, and that's what he did,
from the front. With his closest rival, Josh Grant, out due to a
first-lap mishap, Millsaps just needed to cruise to clinch what he says
he worked his whole life for.

What is it like to just get something you have
dreamed about and worked for as long as you can remember? For the
easygoing Millsaps, he was his usual comical self at the press
conference and for this interview afterward, where he doesn't make any
Racer X: Hey, champ, how does it feel?
Davi Millsaps: Good, you know? It's definitely a dream come true. I've
worked my whole life for this. I don’t think it's hit me yet. I think
I'm kind of in shock still, so.…
What are you going to do to celebrate?
Go to bed!
How was the race day?
It was actually good. I just relaxed. My mom was almost going to throw
up. When she got nervous, it made me nervous. She was freaking out!
When I got on the track, I was really tight, then I loosened up, then I
tightened up and did that again and again about six times in that race.
You just didn’t seem tense at all, not like your first supercross at Minneapolis that time.
|The very happy Honda crew at Houston|
[Laughs] I had the world on my shoulders since last weekend, and it's good for it to roll off.
This 450 thing: Dallas and Seattle, yes?
I'll take that as a 450 this summer.
It’s a surprise.
Do you get a big bonus for winning this title?
Big enough to buy a what?
|The young champion is just about over the Lites class, but he has not confirmed if he will switch to the 450 class this summer|
Do they give you a Honda car?
No. I wish!
Okay, happy sleeping. Enjoy the celebration.
