Wilson Wins First 250SX Class Race of the Season

ANAHEIM , Calif. (February 1, 2014) – Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Tournament, hosted its third and final 2014 stop inside Angel Arena on Saturday night in front of forty two, 139 fans. Discount Tire Racing/TwoTwo Motorsports’ Chad Reed led almost all 20 laps of the 450SX Class Main Event to capture his second win of the season and his second straight in Anaheim. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson won their first race of the year in the Western Regional 250SX Class.

Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart grabbed the Nuclear Cowboyz ® Holeshot Award to begin the 450SX Class Main Event, trimming out Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Thomas Villopoto with Reed close behind in third. Villopoto made a quick move to take over the lead in the second turn, bringing Reed along with him. About halfway through the opening lap, Reed made his give Villopoto to begin a closely contested battle that spanned the entire Top level.

Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen asserted himself into third place, but pressured Villopoto on Lap 3 to take more than second. He would maintain the position through the race, often pressuring Reed however, not able to gain enough ground to make a pass. Villopoto lurked in 3rd place for the bulk of the Main Event, awaiting the opportunity to make a move if it offered itself, but ultimately settled to the final podium spot in the shutting laps.

Reed fended off a last-lap charge by Roczen when a lapped rider obtained between the duo to secure his 43rd career victory and tie the all-time record at Angel Arena with eight wins.

“It was a tough racetrack this evening, ” said Reed. “It was about making smart choices and placing yourself in a good position to ride 20 solid laps. This particular win means more to me than the last one [on January 18] where I came from behind because it’s tougher to go out there and lead all 20 laps. We had our bike dialed in this evening and it was one of those nights where it felt one with me. ”

“I tried to create one last push on the final lap but a lapper obtained in the way. I don’t know if it could have mattered because Reed was traveling well, ” said Roczen. “It was a fun race and I am glad to come out in second. The track was really hard in the end, but it made for great racing. ”

Reed moved to within 2 points of Villopoto in the 450SX Class standings. Villopoto’s third-place complete was his third podium result of the season.

“The monitor was super tough, ” stated Villopoto. “I got a great start but Chad was able to get by myself. Ken was running similar panel times and was able to get by too, but to end up on the podium is always a good thing. ”

Fellow title contenders Ryan Dungey and James Stewart experienced bad luck in the Main Event. While battling with Dungey for the fourth position, Stewart took place in a turn and lost various positions. Just a lap later, Dungey lost control in the whoops and crashed out of the race. Stewart battled back to finish seventh, while Dungey finished in 20th.

Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil Honda’s Cole Seely led the field associated with 22 riders through turn one with the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot Honor in the Western Regional 250SX Class Main Event. Wilson quickly moved into second place with 51Fifty Honda’s Jake Canada in third place.

Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson, who came into tonight’s competition with a six-point lead in the time of year standings, was working his way through the field when he collided with Troy Lee Designs/MAVTV Honda’s Malcolm Stewart, who won their Heat Race earlier in the night, on Lap 2 . Anderson decreased several positions and by Lap 6, had moved into eighth place.

On Lap 12, Seely ran into lapped traffic in the corner and crashed. This allowed Wilson to move into the lead and ride to victory. It was Wilson’s seventh win of his career and his first since last year’s season opening race of the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Championship within Arlington, Texas.

“This win really means a lot in my opinion, ” said Wilson. “The competition was shaping up to be thrilling during those last few laps, but I received a break. This is really emotional for me. I obtained some good points and we still have a few races left. I am going to come out and do my best at those competitions. ”
