Thor U.S. Open Race Report

The 2007 Rockstar U.S. Open of Supercross was held this past weekend in Las Vegas, NV. An all-star rider list set the stage for a preview of the ’08 Supercross season and for the first time at the Open the Lites and the SX class were combined to form a stacked Open class.

Night 1:
Thor’s Chad Reed started off the night with a win in the Superpole competition taking home the first cash prize of $10K. Chad also went on to win his heat.

With the qualifiers out of the way, it was on to the main event. Chad Reed jumped out to an impressive holeshot, adding to his winnings for the night. After the holeshot, Reed ran away with the race. Dodging lapped traffic he held on for the win with Grant Langston picking up the second spot. Andrew Short rounded out the podium.

Night 2’s main event went a bit differently for the win favorites. Chad Reed got caught in a first turn pile up leaving Jake Weimer to grab the holeshot. Chad tried to regain his composure and work his way through the pack but hit the dirt twice more leaving him with an 8th for the nights racing. Jake Weimer ended up holding on for the top spot with Josh Demuth and Mike Alessi filling the podium. With the disappointing end to a great start for the weekend, Chad still managed to take home the 2nd overall for the event. Grant Langston worked his way up to 5th in the final giving him enough points for the title of 2007 U.S. Open Champion and a $100K bonus check.
