Carmichael Takes the Win at Amp’d Mobile Supercross in St. Louis; Townley Picks Up First-Ever Victory in AMA Supercross Lites

ST. LOUIS (March 3, 2007) – Suzuki’s Ricky Carmichael made a victorious return to the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP/Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series with an impressive win before a crowd of 58,131 at the Edwards Jones Dome. Kawasaki’s Ben Townley picked up the first-ever AMA Supercross Lites victory.

Yamaha’s Chad Reed, of Tampa Fla., grabbed the $1,500 Progressive Direct Holeshot Award to start the 20-lap main event. On the opening lap, Reed tangled with Kawasaki’s James Stewart, dropping the riders from the top two positions. Carmichael was the benefactor and took the lead on lap four, overcoming his poor start.

Carmichael’s lead would quickly grow as Stewart, who fell to the back of the pack after getting together with Reed, was making his move through the field. Stewart, of Haines City, Fla., eventually tracked down Reed and passed him on lap 12, giving him second on the night. Reed finished third.

“I don’t know if I would have caught them after spotting them all those positions,” said Carmichael, referring to his poor start. “I saw Chad and James go down, so that helped, but I saw Chad get back up right behind me. I got into the lead but I was looking forward to racing them. I was in my zone tonight but I got a gift.”

In reference to Stewart and Reeds collision, Reed said, “Every week I’m getting pushed around. It’s racing but he thinks he can walk all over me and I’m gonna put an end to that.”

Townley, of Tallahassee, won the $1,000 Progressive Direct Holeshot Award to start the Eastern Regional AMA Supercross Lites main event. He was followed by Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey, of Belle Plaine, Minn., and his Kawasaki teammate Darcy Lange, of Hemet, Calif.

The trio put on quite a battle up front, exchanging the lead a couple of times while pulling from away from the field. On lap 12, Dungey crashed while trying to make a pass on Townley for the lead and dropped out of contention.

Lange made a pass to the lead at the end of lap 14, but was quickly re-passed by Townley with one lap remaining. Lange closed to within a bike length of his teammate before a spectacular crash, ironically in the same spot as Dungey’s earlier crash, ended his chance at a win.

Townley went on to take the win, followed by Yamaha’s Ryan Morais, of Temecula, Calif., and Matt Goerke, of Lake Helen, Fla.

This weekend’s AMA Supercross race will air on SPEED, Sunday, March 4, at 6:00 p.m. EST. The AMA Supercross Lites class race will air on SPEED, Friday, March 16, at 4:30 p.m. EST. The next round of Amp’d Mobile Supercross takes place on Friday, March 9, at the Daytona Motor Speedway.
