Amp’d Mobile Supercross Returns to Legendary Angel Stadium

January 2, 2007 11:02am

Since 1999, Nearly all 22 Amp’d Mobile Races Have Sold-Out in Anaheim

AURORA, Ill. (January 2, 2006) – Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP/Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series returns to Anaheim’s Angel Stadium for three races in 2007: January 6; January 20; February 3. Since 1999, nearly all 22 races have sold out in Angel Stadium, solidifying the southern California stadium is the epicenter of Amp’d Mobile Supercross. 

Following two dramatic races in Toronto and Vancouver, which provided two different winners in the AMA Supercross class, Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP competition is off to its greatest start ever. In Toronto Yamaha’s Chad Reed outlasted Kawasaki’s James Stewart to start the season as Suzuki’s Ricky Carmichael stole the show in Vancouver with a late-race pass on Stewart, winning the race and taking over the points lead.

The annual Anaheim 1 pre-race press, where the entire industry and media assemble to preview the Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series, will be held at Angel Stadium Thursday, January 4 Noon-2:00, featuring Stewart, Carmichael, Reed, Kevin Windham as well as last year’s AMA Supercross Lites champions Davi Millsaps and Grant Langston, who are moving up to the AMA Supercross class. Carmichael and Stewart will be presented their respective championship rings. The riders will be available for interviews and photo opportunities as they ride the track for the media. Fans can listen to the press conference live at at Noon PST.

Last year Suzuki’s Carmichael, of Tallahassee, Fla., won two of the three races at Angel Stadium en route to his fifth AMA Supercross Series championship. Anaheim 1 is the only race that Carmichael has not won during his stellar career. Carmichael, who is the all-time winningest AMA National motocross/supercross racer, will race a select schedule in 2007. Kawasaki’s Stewart, of Haines City, Fla., captured last year’s win at  Anaheim 1 on his way to winning the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP title.

In the AMA Supercross Lites class, Kawasaki’s Grant Langston, the class’ reigning eastern regional champion, won two of the three races at Angel Stadium. Honda’s Andrew Short, of Colorado Springs, Colo., won the opening Western Regional AMA Supercross Lites race, marking the fourth race win of his career. Langston and Short’s race to the championship was settled at the final race of the season, where Langston picked up his second consecutive AMA Supercross Lites championship.

This year’s AMA Supercross class features its deepest field of competition ever. Last year’s AMA Supercross Lites champions Langston and Millsaps will race the premier AMA Supercross class this year along with Ivan Tedesco, Tim Ferry, David Vuillemin, Travis Preston, Nick Wey and Kevin Windham.

Amp’d Mobile Supercross, which made its racing début in Anaheim on December 4, 1976, brings a multi-million dollar economic impact to the city for each race, where fans from around the world converge to watch the world’s top racers compete in the storied city. Carmichael is tied at eight with seven-time supercross champion Jeremy McGrath for the all-time win record in Anaheim.
