Bob Hannah wins a snow-battered Trans-AMA Series at RedBud. Hannah went 1-1 on a miserable day that went back and forth between snow, sleet, and rain. The day got started on a rough note when Husqvarna rider Kent Howerton, blinded off the start by mud and roost, ran into the head flagman, Carroll Chandler, who had just started the race. A restart was called and Howerton got back up and on the starting gate, but Chandler was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital for broken ribs and a bruised hip. On the restart the gate malfunctioned, bringing on another red flag. The race was finally started a third time by green flag.
Behind Hannah came four factory Honda riders: Jim Pomeroy (2-2), Tommy Croft (4-4), Marty Smith (6-3), and Brad Lackey (3-9). Sixth-place went to Marty Tripes on a Harley-Davidson, with Suzuki's Roger DeCoster seventh on the day.
Kawasaki rider Ricky Carmichael dominates the second day of racing at the 2000 U.S. Open of Supercross in Las Vegas, just like he did the night before. Carmichael holeshot and won both his heat race and the main event, giving him a perfect weekend and the $100,000 first prize for the win inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Said Motocrossactionmag.com of RC's dominant weekend, "Turn out the lights, the party’s over. And if the U.S. Open in Las Vegas is any example of how Ricky Carmichael plans to ride in the 2001 Supercross series, the season is over." They were right. Carmichael would win 14 of 16 races the following year, including the last 13 in a row, on his way to his first of five AMA Supercross Championships.
Also that night, KTM rider Kelly Smith win the 4-Stroke class and Kawasaki Team Green's Kyle Chisholm was the top minicycle racer.
