Langston wins 2nd straight, extends AMA Toyota Motocross lead

Cooper and Moss put in solid performances

Posted:

Yamaha‰Ûªs Grant Langston won for the second consecutive week and extended his points lead at the Monster Energy Freestone National, Round 11 of the AMA Toyota Motocross Championship Presented by FMF. Kawasaki‰Ûªs Ryan Villopoto picked up his fifth win of the season in AMA Motocross Lites at the inaugural race at Freestone County Raceway. Langston, who entered Texas with a two-point lead in the standings, posted a second in the opening moto and then followed it up with a convincing win in moto two to gain the overall victory. Honda‰Ûªs Andrew Short, of Smithville, Texas, finished third overall on the day with a 1-5 moto finish and now trails Langston by eight points in the AMA Motocross class standings. KTM‰Ûªs Mike Alessi was second on the day (3-2) but lost ground on Langston and now sits 15 points behind in fourth. Kawasaki‰Ûªs Timmy Ferry finished fourth overall (4-3) and is third in the championship chase with a 13-point deficit. New Zealand's Cody Cooper made an outstanding debut in the series with fifth overall. Cooper's ride was even more outstanding considering he got of to two bad starts and a series where bad starts are normally punished heavily by the depth and quality of the field. The championship is still up for grabs as 50 points are available at the final round next week in San Bernardino, Calif. ‰ÛÏThe points lead is so tight and I knew I needed to win to take control of the championship,‰Û
