Last weekend at Budds Creek MX Park in Mechanicsville, Md., Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki’s Chad Reed stood atop the podium for the fifth time this season and was able to add the number one plate to his resume after clinching the 2009 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship 450 Class title. It is the first outdoor championship for the Australian rider and the third AMA title of his career.
As threatening skies moved into Budds Creek MX Park and rain began to fall at the Monster Energy Motocross National, Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki’s Chad Reed, of Australia, endured the conditions to take his fifth overall victory of the season as well as capture his first AMA Pro Motocross championship with two rounds remaining. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer, of Rupert, Idaho, grabbed the 250 Class win for his third victory of the season.
Reed’s return to the outdoor nationals has been one of the most successful seasons of his career.
