Villopoto Extends Monster Energy Supercross Points Lead with Win in Indianapolis

Posted: Monday, 18th March, 2013 : 9:45 AM - - 27,539 Reads

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto won his sixth 450SX Class Main Event of the season in front of 60,312 fans at the eleventh round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Rockstar Energy Racing’s Davi Millsaps won the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot Award but was soon passed by Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart.

Villopoto moved into third place on the opening lap. Villopoto passed Millsaps on Lap 3 but Millsaps answered back and moved into second place. Three laps later Villopoto moved around Millsaps and held the position.

On the same lap, Stewart stalled his bike and Villopoto took over the lead.

Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey passed Millsaps for second place on Lap 7. On the final lap of the race, Millsaps crashed after the finish line jump and gave the number-three position to Stewart. Dungey held on for second and Stewart finished third.

Villopoto, who earned the 30th win of his career, became the first rider to win four races in Indianapolis and extended his points lead to nine.

“James was riding great tonight,” said Villopoto. “Lucas Oil Stadium has been great to me; it’s an amazing stadium and I love coming here.

"Ryan was able to make up some time on me here and there, but I just kept pushing hard until the end.” Villopoto added.

Australia's Chad Reed finished the nights main event in 6th place and holds down fourth place in the championship standings with six rounds of the championship remaining.

Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin won his second consecutive Eastern Regional 250SX Class Main Event.

Rockstar Energy Racing’s Blake Wharton won the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot Award and was quickly passed by AG Motorsports’ Kyle Peters to start the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Main Event.

GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn started near the back of the pack and began to play catch up immediately.

After five laps, AJ Catanzero held down the number-five position but was passed by Musquin on Lap 11. Hahn worked his way past Catanzero on Lap 13 for fourth place.

On Lap 14 of 15, Wharton crashed, allowing Musquin to take over the lead and Hahn to move into third place. Peters finished a career-best second place and Hahn finished third.

“We have been talking about confidence, and tonight I had it,” said Musquin. “I fought really hard, and I believed in myself. Anything can happen out there, and tonight was kind of lucky but I got the win.”

Hahn continues to lead the championship but was left feeling as though he gave the win away at Indy.

“I gave it away here tonight,” said Hahn. “I have to go home and do my homework to get back on top of the box. I am happy that I was able to work my way back to third, but need to win races.”

Early championship leader and favorite coming in to the West 250SX Championship, Dean Wilson crashed in his heat race, damaging his shoulder and was forced to miss the remainer of the night.

Australia's Jackson Richardson had another solid night, qualifying directly for the main event with a fifth place finish in his heat before going on to finish 18th in the final.

Taylor Potter raced his second AMA SX race, missing the main event after a trip to the LCQ.

Racing resumes next weekend at Toronto’s Rogers Centre.
