Oakland Supercross: Round 4 SX Results

AMA SX Results

The 2011 AMA Supercross series made its debut at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Saturday evening before 44,394 SX fans.

San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart took his second Monster Energy AMA Supercross win, dominating round 4.

The Haines City, Fla., SX rider was joined on the podium by Two-Two Motorsports Honda’s Chad Reed of Tampa, Fla., and the reigning Supercross Champion, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey of Belle Plaine, Minn.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Broc Tickle, of Holly, Mich., won the Western Regional Supercross Lites class race.

During the main Supecross event at Oakland, previous points’ leader Ryan Villopoto was the holeshot winner aboard his Monster Energy Kawasaki KX450F. Villopoto edged out Reed on the CRF450, with Dungey and Stewart in tow.

On lap two, Stewart was already into second. On the same lap, Villopoto suffered a crash, giving the lead to Stewart. The Haines City, Fla., native remained in the lead for the remaining 18 laps, taking his second win of the year besides Round 2 in Phoenix.

Dungey maintained second place for most of the race, but Reed passed him on the last corner, robbing the position.

James Stewart (San Manuel Yamaha Supercross) says: "This is a great win for me and the team. It’s a long season and it’s all about winning a championship. The rain tonight made it a little difficult, but I am glad I came out on top."

In the Western Regional Supercross Lites class, heavy rain fell before Geico Honda’s Eli Tomac, Cortez, Colo., won the holeshot with Red Bull/KTM’s Ken Roczen, of Mattstedt, Germany, and Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Hansen in tow.

By lap 3, Roczen moved into the lead due to a spin out by Tomac. Then on the following two laps, Roczen and Hansen swapped the lead until Hansen secured the first position.

Tickle then passed Roczen on lap five and moved into the lead on lap eight. Roczen went down on lap nine, dropping several positions while Tomac moved into third. Hansen finished second and Tomac held on for third, marking the second podium of his career.

Broc Tickle (Monster Energy Kawasaki Supercross) says: "I was so focused out there tonight. I knew it was going to be really slick out there, so I tried to ride smooth and take it lap by lap."

Hansen now leads Tickle by one point.
