Sign of the (Lap) Times: Daytona

|
Obviously, the big news this past weekend involved Boost Mobile/ampm/Monster Yamaha’s Jason Lawrence and his incredible ride in his first-ever AMA Supercross main event, so let’s begin with that class. Prior to the main event, J-Law shocked the paddock when he went out and laid down the fastest time in practice, thus becoming the first rider besides Stewart or Reed to do so. That practice time of a 1:06.998 held up as the fastest time of the entire day, giving Lawrence the first gate pick in Heat 2.

In the main event, it was Chad Reed logging the fastest lap time, with his 1:08.732 coming on lap 14 as he hunted down the leader, Lawrence. James Stewart, sans helmet visor after the first-turn crash, had the second fastest time, his 1:08.850 coming on lap four. Lawrence rounded out the top three with a 1:09.313, followed by Honda Red Bull Racing’s Davi Millsaps and Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Mike Alessi. Check out the rest of the field’s fastest main-event lap times below.

AMA Supercross Lites

In the Lites class, it looked like Muscle Milk/MDK KTM’s Martin Davalos had his first major win in the bag, as he passed both Matt Lemoine and Christophe Pourcel and started to open up a gap. He recorded the fastest lap time of the main event (1:09.918) on the third lap, and even began to pull away. Unfortunately, Davalos tightened up on lap 12 and relinquished the lead to the second-fastest rider in the class, Pourcel.

The third- and fourth-fastest lap times of the main event came from the Division 7/Star Racing Yamaha’s pilots Lemoine (fourth) and Darryn Durham (seventh). Podium finisher Nico Izzi had the fifth-fastest time en route to a third-place. Check out the rest of the field below.
