Yoshimura powers Supercross Podiums

SX Race Report

Jacksonville was host to an exciting night of racing over the weekend, and the Yoshimura race team was able to claim several podiums in Jacksonville. With a second and third place in the 450 main by Ryan Dungey and Trey Canard, and another second in the Lites main by Austin Stroupe, Yoshimura had a great night.

Dungey spent the race proving his ability to maintain his cool, and with help from Yoshimura, he pulled his way up from fifth to third on his Suzuki RM-Z450. Spending much of the race battling it out for second, he was finally able to overtake second place through the finish. Dungey maintains his lead in the AMA Supercross series by twenty-one points.

Further back, it was a true showdown between teammates Trey Canard and Davi Millsaps as they fought over the fourth-place SX position on their Yoshimura-powered Honda CRF450R bikes. After a fierce battle from seventh place, Canard triumphed over Millsaps and moved into fourth.

Determined to get to the Supercross podium for his last 450 race of the season, Trey kept his momentum going and made his pass for third in the last turn; the podium his for the taking, and his fifth in a row. Millsaps finished the race in sixth place, despite winning his heat race.

In the Eastern Regional SX Lites race, Austin Stroupe grabbed second place on his Yoshimura boosted Suzuki RM-Z250 right out of the gates. In lap four, while attempting to pass into first the leader fumbled, causing both Austin and the leader to be passed.

Austin quickly gained back his second-place position and was able to close the gap between first to within a second but had to settle for a second-place finish. Stroupe is still a good prospect in the point standings, only eight points behind the lead.

Next for Yoshimura’s SX race team in the AMA Supercross series is Houston, Texas, at Reliant Stadium on April 10, 2010.
