Toyota/Racer X Power Rankings

March 7, 2007 8:00am | by:
This week's Toyota/Racer X Power Rankings are out, and there was lots of activity in the Top 25, especially from the Lites' East Region of Amp'd Mobile AMA Supercross in St. Louis.

Despite his last lap crash, Darcy Lange moved up five spots in the poll.

Ben Townley took a huge leap forward, catapulting 12 spots (from 19th to 7th) after only the second supercross race of his career. Next comes his teammate Darcy Lange, who moved up five spots even after his last-lap crash in St. Louis. Lange finished sixth on Saturday night. And even Ryan Dungey moved up after his bid for the win left him on the side of the track trying to restart his bike. All three East Region contenders moved past West runner-up Jason Lawrence, who fell three spots to #11.

Further down, East Region co-leader Ryan Morais has jumped into the Top 25 on the basis of his steady second-place finish at St. Louis, and Matt Goerke--his Yamaha of Troy teammate and the man he's tied with--moves up six spots this week. Goerke sits 16th and Morais is 18th. And at the top of the Toyota/Racer X Power Rankings, James Stewart is still #1, but only by three points and three first-place votes. St. Louis winner Ricky Carmichael tightened things up, and a win this week at Daytona would surely move him into the top spot going into the final Amp'd Mobile Supercross of his career at Daytona International Speedway. All told, 29 members of our panel voted.
