2011 Jacksonville AMA Supercross: Results

2011 AMA Supercross

For the second time of his premier-class career, Trey Canard was victorious, taking the AMA Supercross win Saturday evening at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. He was joined on the podium by Two-Two Motorsports Honda rider Chad Reed and the reigning Supercross Champion, Ryan Dungey aboard the Rockstar Makita Suzuki.

The series' leader, Monster Energy Kawasaki's Ryan Villopoto, did not participate in the main event due to crash in LCQ. And his biggest rival all season, San Manuel Yamaha's James Stewart, crashed on the first lap in Jacksonville, his home race, and was taken off the track on a stretcher.

When the 20-lap main Supercross race began in Jacksonville for the third time in history, KTM rider Mike Alessi got the holeshot, followed by Stewart. But Stewart would crash after the first jump, wrecking with TiLube Kawasaki rider Matt Goerke.

Officials at Jacksonville Supercross placed Stewart on a stretcher, and he was rushed to a nearby hospital. Initial reports say Stewart injured his pelvis, but nothing has been confirmed as of Sunday morning.

By the end of the middle of the first lap, Canard got into the lead, followed by Alessi and Reed. But Reed would soon pass Alessi, and take second place. Then it was Dungey who would be chasing down Reed.

Reed caught up to Canard on Lap 18, and passed the Honda rider. But Canard fought back, taking the lead back. The rookie would hold the position, taking the checkered flag, followed by Reed and Dungey.

Trey Canard says: "I really needed this win," said Canard. "I can't tell you enough how much this means to me. I got nervous at one point and looked at the board and realized how close it really was. I put on a fight and it really paid off tonight.

"The track was tough and slick in some sections. I played it smart out there, and like I say, anything can happen at any given time. We've come a long way and it isn't over yet."

Due to his second-place finish, and Villopoto not garnering any points, Reed moved into the second spot in the points race. Villopoto now leads by seven points over Reed.

Dungey moved into third, 11 points behind Reed. Stewart is in fourth, five points behind Dungey.

In the Eastern Regional Supercross Lites class, GEICO Honda's Justin Barcia became only the second rider this year to win twice after taking Saturday evening's race. He was followed to the checkered flag by Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki's Dean Wilson and DNA Shred Stix/Star Yamaha's Ryan Sipes, respectively.

Justin Barcia (GEICO Honda CRF250R) says: "I had a really tough day out there today and really had to push it. The whoops were gnarly. I plan on going home and building some big whoops at home to get more practice on them. I'm just pumped to win tonight."

SPEED TV will broadcast the Eastern Regional Supercross Lites class at 5 p.m. (EST) Sunday, followed by the Supercross class at 6 p.m.

The 2011 Monster Energy Supercross Championship continues next Saturday in Canada, as the field will compete at Rogers Centre in Toronto.
