The Monster Energy AMA Supercross series visited Houston last evening. Following a pile-up in the first corner, several of the favorites had to pick themselves off the ground, including series points leader James Stewart (Yamaha) and former champ Chad Reed (Honda). In the end, Trey Canard (Honda) took his first Supercross class win after holding off a hard charging Ryan Dungey (Suzuki), who finished second. Ryan Villopoto (Kawasaki) narrowly avoided the first turn crash and was forced off the track. Nevertheless, Villopoto charged through the pack to finish third. Villopoto regains the championship series points lead due to a poor result for Stewart, who finished in 15th position.
The opening round of the East Coast Lites series saw Justin Barcia (Honda) take the win ahead to second place Dean Wilson (Kawasaki) and third place Blake Baggett (Kawasaki).
