Texas Supercross Results

Defending champ Ryan Villopoto (Kawasaki) won his fourth race of the year last night at Cowboy Stadium to pad his points lead in the series.  Ryan Dungey (KTM) finished second and Jake Weimer (Kawasaki) finished third.  Chad Reed (Honda) was in a close battle with Villopoto early in the race when a heavy crash took Reed out of the action.  Reed is being checked out by a doctor in California today, but was seen in the pits with a brace on his right leg following the incident.

    That was the best we’ve see Reed, stalking Villapoto for the kill then fate would have it, nose dive into the sand. Reed is out for the season, Fractured Fib/Tib, torn ACL, cracked ribs,and fractured vertibre…ouch! We are hoping for a full recovery and back next year! At this point unless Dungey steps it up it’s all Villapoto.

    Looked like it was going to be a good race til Reed crashed after that there was no drama. I hope Reed is ok.

    We had a race till Reed’s crash. And Stewart caught some more bad luck. Hopefully we’ll see Villopto/Dungey/Stewart actually racing for the win on the last lap. I got a feeling Reed will be out for a while. Too bad, he was flying

    Looks like Reed may have bashed his knee on the triples. To me, I all I saw was him land on the back of his neck. Was looking to be an exciting race. Seems being out of control runs in the Stewart family. When they’re not taking themselves out, they take out others. The lites class had a lot more than bar bashing…more like bike/rider bashing.

    Hope Reed recovers quickly.that looked painful.
    On another note, I sure like seeing KTM on the podium. After 35 years of Japanese bikes dominating AMA, it is refreshing to see something else able to win.
    Now we need some Husky’s in there.Or better yet an American bike. Come on Polaris, HD, Victory.
    Could a smaller outfit like S&S build a competitive dirt bike engine? Rotax? Other than the frame & engine the aftermarket has got the pro level suspension, brakes, wheels, exhaust, sprockets, etc……covered. Put it in a package that could be detuned & dual sported to make a sellable product. Just thinking out loud here.Come on USA

    Hope Chad Reed isn’t too hurt after his get off. He looked really confident just biding his time.
