AMP’D MOBILE AMA SUPERCROSS

2007 ST. LOUIS POST-RACE PODIUMS AND INTERVIEWS – 3/3/07

 

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  We got Ryan MoraisRyan Morais, finally!  Welcome to the podium!

 

RYAN MORAIS:  Yeah, finally.  Been working my butt off over here and I’m so happy it’s paying off.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  It’s been a long road for you.  I know the injuries have piled up over the years, but you don’t stop believing!

 

RYAN MORAIS:  Yeah, injuries have been definitely a big part of my career, unfortunately.

 

JIM HOLLEY:  Hey, Ryan, this is Jim Holley.  Do you know you’re actually leading the points?  You’re tied with your teammate right now, with 40, going into Daytona next week.

 

RYAN MORAIS:  I did not know that.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Points lead, buddy. 

 

JIM HOLLEY:  You’re tied.

 

RYAN MORAIS:  That’s really good to know.  Actually, I don’t know if that’s good to know.  Makes me a little more nervous now.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Somebody would have told you – Don’t worry.

 

JIM HOLLEY:  How tough is that sand section on the start when you come out of that first turn to do that double and you’re right into it?

 

RYAN MORAIS:  It’s difficult.  That was definitely the hardest spot of the whole track.  I thought the track was really easy tonight and the sand was definitely the technical part.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Well, Ryan, man, congratulations.  Great job on the podium.  And you got the points lead.  Did you expect to be doing this strong this early?

 

RYAN MORAIS:  Yeah, I’m ready for Daytona.  Got a little confidence now; I’m ready to come in.  I just want to give a shout out to all my friends at home, all my roommates, and thanks for all the support.

 

JASON WEIGANDT: Good job, Ryan. Alright, Ryan Morais, taking second place tonight.  He is of course now tied for the points lead with his teammate, Matt Goerke.  We got Matt?  Matt, you there?

 

JIM HOLLEY:  Hey, Matt, how you doing?

 

MATT GOERKE:  I’m doing good.

 

JIM HOLLEY:  Hey, I gotta ask you.  After that practice crash in turn #5 – where you went through the whoops there – you landed on the concrete.  After that, they put an Alpine Star tuff block in the turn there.  That had to make you feel a little bit better.

 

MATT GOERKE:  Yeah, a little bit.  I wish they would have had that there at first though, because that hurt when I hit that concrete.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Were you shaken up, going into the main event?

 

MATT GOERKE:  Yeah, I was a little worried.  I mean, my wrist was hurting, but I talked to Dr. Metzger and my trainer, Jim Delzer, and they just told me to block it out.  It’s only about 12, 13 minutes of my life to block it out, and I did.

 

JIM HOLLEY:  How do you block out when you’re coming into that turn #6 there and you see Darcy Lange flipped over and you see all the guys ahead of you that are crashing and you end up with that third place?

 

MATT GOERKE:  I was pumped.  I was just following my teammate, Ryan.  He was riding awesome; I was right on him.  Then I was just taking it nice and smooth, trying to get a good finish where I stay in the points and they ended up crashing, so now me and Ryan are up there.  That’s awesome.

 

JIM HOLLEY:  Hey, you mentioned the points.  Do you know you’re tied with your teammate right now going into Daytona?

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  For the points lead.

 

MATT GOERKE:  Yeah, that’s what they just said.  I’m pumped.  Especially after that crash in practice and the next two races are my two hometown races.  I can’t wait.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Yeah, you’re a Florida boy now.  I know this is a completely different year for you.  You have turned up big time.  What do you credit this to?

 

MATT GOERKE:  Oh, yeah, my bike is just awesome this year.  I’m on an awesome team.  Also, another person I’d like to thank for helping me out before the main event was Steve Navarro – he was working on my wrist and it held up good.

 

JIM HOLLEY:  Well, go get some more treatment on that wrist and we’re gonna call this next Supercross main event.  Thanks for coming on.

 

MATT GOERKE:  Alright, cool.  Thanks a lot.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  That’s Matt Goerke, third place tonight. That worked out beautifully as we transition now into our main event for our Supercross class.  We’ll have Ben Townley come up here and join us for it a little bit later on.  He’s got a lot of the line here too because, well, Ricky Carmichael. He lives at Carmichael’s house, he trains with Carmichael, he has Eldon Baker, Ricky Carmichael’s trainer, as his trainer.  Now, Camp Carmichael hopes they can deliver another one here in the main event in the Supercross class tonight.

 

[MAIN EVENT]

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Joined by our Lites winner here, Ben Townley.  Ben, that was a wild race, but this one, just as wild right now.

 

BEN TOWNLEY:  Yeah, definitely.  My race was out of control at the end there. I’m still running through it in my head. I got the holeshot and I wasn’t setting the world on fire out there. I was just riding pretty consistent and doing good lap times and probably holding the others up a little bit.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  You made it work.

 

BEN TOWNLEY:  Yeah, I mean, I stayed on.

 

JIM HOLLEY:  Hey, Ben, I gotta ask you.  In turn 7, right down here, you made that inside line work for you.

 

BEN TOWNLEY:  Yeah, I did.  I just came in there and I knew the rut was pretty deep and I just forced my way through there.  And Darcy was riding good. We had a good battle going there at the end.  I felt sorry for him.  But I just gotta say hi to everyone in New Zealand.  There is a lot of people listening in right now and they know that this has been my dream for a long time and it’s just awesome.  I can’t explain it.

 

JIM HOLLEY:  Yeah, we actually gave a shout out to your mom.  We know she was supposed to come over with your dad, but your sister had an illness and she stayed back.  But hey, he did it, Mom!

 

BEN TOWNLEY:  I’ve gotta say, this one’s for you, little sis, and I hope you get better.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  In just a moment, we’ll have Ricky Carmichael up on the podium.  Now you might have heard a spattering of jeers, cheers, the whole nine yards, if they interviewed James Stewart and Chad Reed.  But now we’re gonna go down to the podium and hear from Ricky Carmichael.

 

TERRY BOYD:  Even early on today, I could tell you were in the groove; you were in your zone.

 

RICKY CARMICHAEL:  I was in my zone, but I got a gift, and I guess I’ll take it any way I can get it.  You guys were awesome.  When I went into the lead the crowd was so loud. I don’t know if I could have caught him, spotting him that much with a bad start, but when they fell down and Chad got up right behind me, he had his chance to get me and I kept laying the wood down and putting in some good laps. I felt really, really good.  Hate to take it that way, but I will.

 

TERRY BOYD:  What about next week?  You go to Daytona.  You certainly love that track.  It’s gnarly; it’s more of like an outdoor racetrack.  It’s gonna be a different set of circumstances.

 

RICKY CARMICHAEL:  Yeah, it is.  It’s gonna be a lot different, and I’m looking forward to it.  I love that place.  I love this place too.  I love the crowd here and I love this dirt. I wish we could have all three battled it out, but I don’t know what those guys were doing. I was enjoying it and enjoying you guys so much.  Thank you very much.  I gotta give it up for Makita Suzuki.  Those guys in the shop work so hard and Bridgestone Tires, Fox, Oakley, all my fans, Live Nation, Monster Energy – Thank you very much.

 

TERRY BOYD:  You got the record now for St. Louis – four wins here.  You’ve surpassed Jeremy McGrath.  You’re the winningest rider in the St. Louis Edward Jones Dome history.  Then the following week after Daytona, we go to Orlando – your final race.  I know you want to invite these guys to come on down and see you in all your glory.

 

RICKY CARMICHAEL:  Oh, absolutely.  I’m loving it.  This has just been a phenomenal career and I never thought it would be this good. I wouldn’t be out here without you guys.  You guys are what’s sailing this ship.  We need the crowd to be here and pack all these things.

 

TERRY BOYD:  I gotta ask you a question.  Joe Nemechek is over there.  Was that a Nascar style donut that he burned over here?  Because I think that’s what you were trying to show ‘em.

 

RICKY CARMICHAEL:  Yeah, you know what?  I tried.  It’s a little harder on two wheels, and standing up.  It’s a great opportunity.  If it happens, great.  I’m gonna do it all, giving it my all.

 

TERRY BOYD:  Hey, man, great Ricky as always.  The greatest of all time.  The greatest ambassador.  St. Louis, say goodbye to Ricky Carmichael!

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Well, that’s our winner, Ricky Carmichael.  And, like you said, Jim, he had to have a smile on his face.  He got a terrible start, but Reed and Stewart knocking each other down on the first lap – and what I was saying was a smattering of tears and jeers for both Reed and Stewart.  We’ll figure out exactly what went down when we get to talk to those guys in a second.  We’ll have the exclusive interviews with Reed, Stewart, Carmichael, right here on Supercross Live.  So stay with us here.

 

[RADIO SHOW]

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Who have we got down there?

 

JIM HOLLEY:  James Stewart.  James, you’re on, buddy.  How you doing?

 

JAMES STEWART:  I’m alright.

 

JIM HOLLEY:  Hey, let’s get physical tonight.  That was nice out there.

 

JAMES STEWART:  Yeah, I guess it’s gonna be like that the rest of the season.  But, I’m out here racing for a championship.  I knew what I had to do when I got back and I felt like I rode good.  I had a good pace going tonight, but just a mistake on my part, I guess.

 

JIM HOLLEY:  I noticed when you came out of that sand section, you got hung up with Ryan Clark and then after the race, Ryan Clark came over to you.  What was he saying?

 

JAMES STEWART:  Well, we were just talking about it. I didn’t mean to go in and I was just trying to make up some time and I saw him hold the guy up and I thought he would just be up there a little bit, kind of blocking the guy, and he cut down and we tangled up, but no hard feelings.  We shook hands and I told him, my bad – I didn’t mean to take him out.  He said he’d move over if I asked him to, but I was like it’s kind of hard to ask you on the racetrack.

 

JIM HOLLEY:  Well, here’s the next one that’s gonna be a little bit hard.  I’ve been in that position before.  When you’re battling, you come after the race, you get the finish line, you give Chad Reed the thumbs up – He comes over to you.  What did he say?

 

JAMES STEWART:  Oh, he just started calling me some names and he ended up pushing me. I just told him, dude, there’s no reason for that.  We’re both out here racing for one goal and you don’t have to be like that.  We had twenty laps to handle it and, oh well.  I just gotta expect that but I just gotta give it up for the guys from Kawasaki.  We worked really hard tonight.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  How did it work out, James, that the same corner that you and Reed came together earlier in the main was the same one that you were able to pass him back later?  That’s pretty wild how that worked out.

 

JAMES STEWART:  Yeah, I got him.  Oh, I just had to make a move.  I thought maybe – I didn’t know what he was gonna do; try to jump on me or just run me off the track.  I just know what to expect but no hard feelings on my part.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Alright, James, we’re proud of that.  Did you think at any point you were gonna go after the win or was it all second place tonight?

 

JAMES STEWART:  No, I knew what I had to do.  Beating Chad Reed is like a win to me right now.  I’m super stoked for Ricky to go out in his last race in St. Louis and win it.  I think it actually worked out really good.  I have no hard feelings and congratulations to him.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Well done, James.  Congrats.  We’ll see you in Daytona and then in Orlando, right?

 

JAMES STEWART:  Yep, thank you.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Alright, that’s James Stewart, our runner up tonight.  Some harsh words being exchanged with Chad Reed.  We have the binoculars on; I’m not sure what’s going on with Reed right now.  Is that him taking the discussion down there, Jim?

 

JIM HOLLEY:  Yeah, he’s actually talking to Allen Brown, Larry Brooks and our man, Dixon, is making his way over to Chad Reed and getting ready to throw that headset on him and we’ll get a question from Chad Reed.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Well, we’ve heard the one side of the story from James Stewart.  We’ll hear from Chad as well.  And it was just a wild race tonight, in both the Lites and in the Supercross class.  We saw several crashes determine the race in the Lites division and then crashes determined here in the Supercross class as well, with Reed and Stewart coming together early in the race and opening up the door for Carmichael and whatever’s going on between those two, Carmichael’s not asking any questions. 

 

Let’s go down to Chad Reed.  Chad, what’s up?

 

CHAD REED:  What’s up?

 

JIM HOLLEY:  Hey, Chad, that was quite an understatement to say about physical.  You and Stewart were getting physical out there tonight.

 

CHAD REED:  A little bit.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  It was pretty wild.  You know, for announcers like us, we enjoy the battles like that.  Just take us through what happened in that corner.  Is that incidental contact?  What happened down there?

 

CHAD REED:  Yeah, every time he passes me, he has to bump me, and I bumped back tonight.

 

JASON WEIGANDT:  Yeah, you certainly did.  Now did you stall the engine – did you kill the bike when you guys went down there?

 

CHAD REED:  My bike didn’t stall.  It was just kind of upside down and I had to pick it up.  It was kind o
