Championship picture changing coming into Thunder Valley Motocross Park

Posted:

A dramatic turn of events last weekend in New Berlin, New York, gave the 2007 AMA Toyota Motocross Championship presented by FMF an entirely new outlook as the series kicks off the second half of the season. The series now moves to Lakewood, Colo., and the Thunder Valley Motocross Park on July 21-22, for the Toyota Trucks Pro Motocross Nationals Presented by Division 7. James Stewart, the rider most expected to take control of the championship in the absence of Ricky Carmichael, suffered a hard crash last weekend, and was forced to sit out both motos on Sunday. That left the door wide open for the other riders in the series and it was veteran Kevin Windham who took the victory on his Sobe/No Fear/Samsung Honda. It marked the first AMA Motocross win for Windham in nearly four years. With Stewart out it also gave the rest of the field a chance to close the gap in the championship. As the series comes to round seven at Thunder Valley, Ricky Carmichael, who won the first five rounds, but is only riding part time as he moves into stock-car racing, still leads the championship with 241 points. Stewart is second with 225. Monster Energy Kawasaki‰Ûªs Tim Ferry, who finished second last week at Unadilla, is now third in the series with 204 points. With Carmichael not attending and Stewart questionable for this weekend, there‰Ûªs a possibility that the AMA Motocross Championship could see a new series leader at Thunder Valley. However, on Tuesday Kawasaki announced that Stewart will attempt to race this weekend. ‰ÛÏEach day I feel better and better,‰Û
