Supercross Series Jumps into St. Lous

Monster Energy SX

Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey brings a 12-point lead over Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto into Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis on Saturday. St. Louis is a tradition in the Supercross Series.

Last year, in front of 55,815 fans inside the Edward Jones Dome, last year, Chad Reed–then on a Suzuki RM-Z450, now on a Kawasaki KX450F–earned his third win of the 2009 season. In the AMA Supercross Lites class, Blake Wharton broke through with his first-career victory.

Chad Reed says: "Like I say every week, you got to be in it to win it and that’s what we’re doing. "I’m having a ball out here. The track was just awesome tonight. Travis (Pastrana) designed a great track. I just love this St. Louis dirt."

The first AMA Supercross race was held inside the Edward Jones Dome April 27, 1996, and Kawasaki’s Jeff Emig, a Missouri native who now announced Supercross for Speed TV, won the main event, snapping Jeremy McGrath’s 13-race win streak.

In front of his hometown crowd, Emig notched the first of 20 AMA Supercross class wins of his career. Reed has won in three of four starts in St. Louis, but Carmichael holds the all-time win record in the Gateway City with four. Windham, Carmichael, Reed and McGrath have all won in both classes at St. Louis.
