Sign Of The  Lap Times: Seattle

Sign of the Lap Times: Seattle

Advertisement | Advertise with Us
The Emerald City once again proved to be host to one of the most brutal tracks in Monster Energy Supercross. Aside from maybe Daytona, Qwest Field in Seattle provides some of the deepest, gnarliest ruts in the series. The change proved beneficial to riders like Kevin Windham (2nd) who had his best finish of the year, and outdoor specialists like Mike Alessi and Kyle Regal. But enough about the terrain, let's get to the lap charts brought to you by Motion Pro.

For the third consecutive week James Stewart laid down the fastest lap of the night with a 52.361 on lap four aboard his San Manuel Yamaha. After having some off-track issues before Dallas, Stewart has been on an absolute tear. After finishing fourth in Dallas Stewart has gone back-to-back in St. Louis and Seattle to close the point’s gap on Monster Energy Kawasaki's Ryan Villopoto to nine with two rounds remaining.

The ruts in Seattle tend to grow deeper and deeper as the laps tick away, meaning you need to lay the wood early and often if you plan on jumping to the top of the lap chart leaderboard. Well, in Seattle, things got nasty in a hurry. A remarkable 18 out of 19 riders (Austin Stroupe did not complete a lap) set their fastest lap within laps two through five. Only one rider (Ryan Dungey) managed to dig their way through the deep Seattle soil to set a fast lap later in the race. Dungey set his fast lap on lap eight with a 54.132.

After what seems like a year layoff the West coast boys were back in action in Seattle and did they have a tough track to come back to or what? Lucas Oil/Troy Lee Designs/Honda's Cole Seely made Seattle look like his practice track and absolutely dismantled the field en route to his second career victory. He also managed to set the fastest lap of the night (51.187) in the process.

Honda privateer and Washington native Tommy Weeck had one of his best finishes on the year in front of his home-state crowd. The Carnation, Washington, native set the tenth fastest lap of the night with a 55.210. Weeck would run inside the top 10 for the majority of the night before he found trouble late and finished the night 14th.
