Throwback Prices for Throwback Night at Angel Stadium

Posted:

Monster Energyå¨ Kawasaki‰Ûªs James Stewart scored his first win of the season at Phoenix‰Ûªs Chase Field last Saturday, knotting the score between arch rival Chad Reed, of Team San Manuel. Tied at 47 points, Stewart and Reed will square off once again at Round 3 of 17 this Saturday at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. This Saturday will pay tribute to the epic ‰Û÷80‰Ûªs era. The night will honor the ‰Û÷80‰Ûªs era with a nostalgic look back at the racing that helped launch supercross to one of the world‰Ûªs top motorsports. The Throwback night will feature a replica of the 1986 Anaheim track celebrating the epic battle between Honda riders David Bailey and Rick Johnson. In what is considered the greatest supercross race of all-time, Bailey went on to win the race and Johnson captured the championship that year. To show support for the race, many teams and riders will be outfitted with gear and bikes that have an ‰Û÷80‰Ûªs retro theme. Former AMA Supercross class champions Bailey and Johnson are working closely with Live Nation Motor Sports, Inc., to help capture the nostalgic ‰Û÷80‰Ûªs look and feel. The factory teams will display the ‰Û÷80‰Ûªs works bikes that helped pilot the era‰Ûªs top racers to championships. In addition, former legends Mike Kiedrowski, Scott Burnsworth, Mickey Dymond, Mike Bell, Marty Smith, Sebastien Tortelli, Jeff Stanton, Mike LaRocco, Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael, Ron Lechien, Donnie Hansen, Broc Glover, Rick Johnson, David Bailey, Erik Kehoe, Jim Holley, Johnny O‰ÛªMara, Jimmy Button, Bob Moore, Jeff Emig, Danny LaPorte, Greg Albertyn, Marty Tripes, Steve Stackable, Gary Jones, Dwayne Jones, Bryar Holocomb, Brad Lackey, Doug Dubach, Jeff Ward, Roger DeCoster, Tommy Croft, Eddie Cole and Bruce McDougal will be honored at the race and will be on-hand to sign autographs from 2:30-3:30 p.m. outside of the Toyota Zone in the pits. Also, a few ‰Û÷80‰Ûªs-themed surprises have been built into the night program. Fans have been encouraged to dress the part all day and to get behind this fun throwback night. From the variety of on-site, ‰Û÷80s-themed promotions to the ‰Ûª80‰Ûªs music and videos, Throwback night will capture the essence of that special era of supercross racing. At the opening round of Monster Energyå¨ Supercross at Angel Stadium, Team San Manuel‰Ûªs Chad Reed opened the 2008 championship with a huge win over Stewart in the AMA Supercross class. Rockstar Makita Suzuki‰Ûªs Ryan Dungey led the field of Western Regional AMA Supercross Lites riders, scoring the fifth win of his career. At last year‰Ûªs second Anaheim race, Stewart and Ryan Villopoto won their second-consecutive race at Angel Stadium. Stewart led all 20 laps of the main event while Villopoto led 3 of 15 laps.
