Minneapolis, Minnesota – March 18, 2008 – Factory Yamaha’s Josh Hill wins his first ever Supercross race and permanently cements his name among the sport’s elites.
It was a momentous and eventful night as Yamaha’s Josh Hill finally made his way to the top spot on the podium, scoring his first ever AMA Supercross win. It was an emotional victory for the Oregon native whose Grandfather made the long trek to Minneapolis to see his grandson take his first ever checkered flag. After battling with fellow WMG Athlete’s Chad Reed and Davi Millsaps all night long, Josh proved to be the best rider that night as he rode away from the pack and on to victory. “I couldn’t be more excited” said an ecstatic Hill afterwards, adding: “my Grandpa always said he’d be there for my first Supercross victory so having him here makes it all the more special. It feels so good to get that first win out of the way.” The 2008 AMA Supercross season now takes a week off before returning to Toronto on March 29th for the next round.
Josh would like tto thank his sponsors: Yamaha, Thor, Parts Unlimited, Monster Energy, Dragon, Boost Mobile, DC Shoes and Alpinestars.
