Sign of the (Lap) Times: San Diego

|
Intermittent rain and a technical track made for a tough night of racing in San Diego. For this week's Racer X Sign of the (Lap) Times presented by Motion Pro, we check out the lap times from another wild night in Monster Energy Supercross.

  • Ryan Villopoto put in the fastest lap of the night while mounting a comeback.
This week's lap time chart points out several unique factors. The most important: Ryan Villopoto turned in the fastest lap of the night for the second week in a row. Of course he didn't win this one, since he was down in the first turn in a crash that also involved Ryan Dungey and Tommy Hahn. But RV is going fast these days, no doubt.

Dungey had to overcome a few other problems along the way, including a second crash. He also had a hole in the radiator of his bike, but he didn't know it during the race. In traffic, he could only muster the eighth-best time.

Race winner Davi Millsaps rode smart and steady up front. Josh Hill actually edged him for a faster lap, but Hill admitted he waited a little too long to charge. Credit Millsaps for managing the race well, going only as fast as he needed to, and of course getting that first win of the season!

This chart does have some bad news for Honda fans, though, as Kevin Windham and Andrew Short were fast, only to run into trouble and finish deep in the field (mechanical problem for Windham, crash for Short).

  • Jake Weimer held off a strong charge by Max Anstie to win in San Diego
Jake Weimer had the fastest lap and won the race, not a huge surprise. But rookie Max Anstie was there pressuring him most of the way, and you can see that in the lap times. Max's best was just hundreths of a second off of Jake's! Unfortunately, Anstie fell on the last lap and dropped to fourth.

That left the Lucas Oil/Troy Lee Honda boys battling for the podium spots. Wil Hahn had a faster lap, but Cole Seely edged him for second.

The rest of the list looks consistent, but they're far from it. Blake Wharton's seventh-best lap and ninth-place finish came courtesy of an off-track excursion and a crash while he was battling Anstie. And his teammate Trey Canard grabbed the holeshot, crashed when challenged by Weimer, and came all the way back from nearly last to sixth. His lap time was the sixth fastest, too.
