Stewart Clinches First Ever Amp’d Mobile Supercross Championship; Poulsbo Native Villopoto Takes Hometown Win

SEATTLE (April 28, 2007) – Kawasaki’s James Stewart, of Haines City, Fla., clinched his first-ever Amp’d Mobile Supercross Series championship as well as his second Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP title when he captured his 12th win of the season tonight at Qwest Field in front of 47,445 fans. After clinching the Amp’d Mobile Western Regional AMA Supercross Lites championship prior to tonight’s race, Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto, of Poulsbo, Wash., closed out the series with his seventh win.

In the AMA Supercross class main event Suzuki’s Ivan Tedesco earned the $1,500 Progressive Direct Holeshot Award and subsequently crashed, causing Yamaha’s Chad Reed, of Dade City, Fla., to crash into the back of Tedesco’s bike, giving up his second-place position. Reed restarted in last place. Kawasaki’s Jeff Gibson, of Blacklick, Ohio, moved into the lead briefly before Stewart passed him.

Tim Ferry, of Dade City, Fla., stalled his Kawasaki, which allowed Honda’s Kevin Windham, of Centerville, Miss., and Honda’s Davi Millsap, of Cairo, Ga., to move past him. Millsaps passed Windham and rode to his first second place finish of the season. Windham finished third.

“It has been a long season,” said Stewart. “To have this championship is a dream come true. I have waited for this my entire life. I was nervous all day. I want to thank my team and family for all of their support this year.”

Kawasaki’s Chris Gosselaar, of Victorville, Calif., won the $1,000 Progressive Direct Holeshot Award in the AMA Supercross Lites class main event with Yamaha’s Jason Lawrence on his back wheel through turn one. Josh Hill, of Yoncalla, Ore., who started in third place, pushed his Yamaha into the lead on lap two. Villopoto started in fifth place and made his way into second on lap three.

On lap six Villopoto moved past Hill after the whoop-de-doo section and rode to victory in front of his hometown crowd. Lawrence, who was riding in fourth place, moved past Honda’s Josh Grant, of Riverside, Calif., and Hill, to secure second place. Lawrence held onto second and Hill finished third.

“It was great to ride in front of this great crowd,” said Villopoto. “I have a lot of family and friends in the stands tonight, and I want to thank them and everyone that has been behind me this year. I am looking forward to Las Vegas next weekend for the East/West shootout.”

Next Saturday at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium, the Dave Coombs Sr. East/West Shootout will stage the top Amp’d Mobile Supercross Lites riders from the East and West Regions.

The AMA Supercross class will air on CBS Sports Sunday, April 29, at Noon (EST). SPEED will broadcast the AMA Supercross Lites class Saturday, May 5, at 4:00 p.m. (EST). Amp’d Mobile Supercross heads to Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium next Saturday for the final race of the season.
