At the beginning of the season James Stewart, Ricky Carmichael and Jeremy McGrath were all tied for the most wins in Anaheim with eight each. There was some discussion on whether or not Stewart would serve The King and The Goat their club eviction notices by winning a race in Anaheim, but that didn’t happen. Instead of the club getting smaller, it expanded when Chad Reed was issued his official, Anaheim Badass credentials by winning A2 and A3, putting his Anaheim win tally at eight. That creates a four-way tie in all-time Anaheim race wins.
But Reed just accomplished something bigger. With his A3 win, Reed also became the Golden State’s winningest supercross racer with seventeen supercross wins in California, one more than Jeremy McGrath. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of riders who have won premier supercross races in California for this week’s The List. And if you’re wondering if any of this matters, well, we’ll dig a little deeper into how this portends to a championship in 450 Words later today.
