Reed back to second in the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship

Posted:

Defending AMA Motocross Champion, Chad Reed has bounced back from the disappointment of last weekends High Point National to finish on the podium at Budds Creek and move to second in the 2010 Lucas Oil Pro AMA Motocross Championship standings.

The Australian got a reasonable start in the first 450 moto, settling into fifth behind championship leader Ryan Dungey on the opening lap. He maintained fifth for the majority of the race before passing Ben Townley to take fourth with four laps remaining.

Reed got another good start in the second moto and was third into the first turn. The Monster Energy Kawasaki rider passed Andrew Short for second on Lap 5 and held his position for the duration of the race.

Taking 40 points from today's event Reed was third overall and jumped from fourth to second in the championship order.

"This was definitely a much better result than last week," Reed admitted. "But I still feel like I am a little bit off on a few things.

"I guess the hard thing is that I do the majority of my testing in California and the bike was awesome at the first race which was in California. Since then, I have been struggling a bit and I have also been struggling at my home test track.

"Our challenge now it to iron out a few of these little issues that are holding us back but on a positive note, pretty much every race from here will be on tracks that are more like my track.

"I know we can do better, and there are a few things that we will do to make that happen," Reed continued.

The fifth round of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship will be held at Thunder Valley Motocross Park in Colorado on Saturday June 26.
