Carmichael (250) and Sellards (125) Taste Victory at Anaheim 3

Round 5 of the AMA Supercross series visited Anaheim, California last evening (the third Anaheim race of the year) where the riders negotiated a very slippery track. Coming out on top in the 250 class, for the second week in a row, was Honda’s Ricky Carmichael. Carmichael was followed home by Kawasaki’s Stephane Roncada — just 3.6 seconds behind. Roncada recorded the fastest lap time of the evening in the 250 main. Third, and still the series points leader, was Yamaha’s David Vuillemin.

In the 125 class, KTM’s Brock Sellards took victory by three seconds over Honda’s Chris Gosselar. Kawasaki’s young phenom James Stewart had a rough evening and, despite the quickest lap time in his class by quite a margin, was held to 11th place as a result of crashes. Stewart is still the points leader in the 125 West series, however.
