Sign of the (Lap) Times: San Francisco

|
There were a total of five riders out of both classes that were able to dip into the 49-second range at this past weekend’s San Francisco supercross, with San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart topping them all with a 49.420. However, the big surprise was who was second-fastest in the AMA Supercross class. All season it’s been James Stewart or Chad Reed flip-flopping for one and two, but at San Fran it was Anaheim 1 winner Josh Grant scoring the second-best time aboard his JGRMX/Toyota Yamaha. His 49.815 came on lap seven on his way to a fourth-place finish, helping him to maintain third in the series standings. Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Chad Reed rounded out the top three in the AMA Supercross class, following by Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto and Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Mike Alessi. Check out fourth through tenth, as they were all within .7 seconds of each other. Check out the rest of the top 20 below:

AMA Supercross Lites

Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey continues his impressive run toward the Western Regional Lites Supercross Championship, and again he was the fastest rider on a 250cc machine, recording a 49.592 to top the field. San Francisco winner Jake Weimer was only a few clicks behind, and he was followed by a pair of Hondas; GEICO Powersports Honda’s Trey Canard and Troy Lee Designs Honda’s Chris Blose. A big surprise was Justin Brayton’s lackluster lap times on his Muscle Milk/MDK KTM. Brayton, who came into the season a true title contender, could only muster the eighth-fastest time in SF on his way to a fourth-place finish. Brayton also sits fourth in the standings.
