Anaheim 1 Supercross Results

Saturday, January 3, 2009
Dan Reardon - Anaheim 1
Dan Reardon holeshot the Lites main event but couldn't hold on to the win.
Anaheim 1 proved to be what might be the craziest race of the season. Both divisions saw crashes and upsets as well as blazing speed and determination. Jake Weimer took the Lites class on his Monster Pro Circuit Kawasaki while Josh Grant snagged the Supercross main event on his JGR Yamaha.

The Lites started out with Dan Reardon pulling the holeshot on his Honda, but Weimer was quick to move by in the opening minutes. Behind him, the two reigning champions Jason Lawrence (West) and Trey Canard (East) went down in a pileup. Weimer’s teammate, Ryan Morais, claimed second while Rockstar Makita Suzuki star Ryan Dungey worked into third from a 10th-place start.

Stewart   Reed Battle - Anaheim 1
Chad Reed (1) fought back from a crash to take third on his Suzuki. With James Stewart dropping out, Reed has a great advantage going into the remaining season.
The 450 main event was even crazier with James Stewart out front early after taking the lead from holeshotting Grant. Chad Reed was quick to run down and pass the Yamaha rider for first on his Rockstar Makita Suzuki. It looked as though he might run away before JS pulled out the stops and charged back by for a clean pass. However, almost immediately after, Stewart made a mistake entering the whoops and crossed into Reed’s line, taking out his front wheel. Reed flipped over the bars and landed safely in some soft dirt, but Stewart wasn’t so lucky. The YZ-F rider piled headfirst into the face of a whoop and was stunned, remaining motionless as Reed remounted and rode away. As JS attempted to push his Yammie off the track, it was right into the path of oncoming Kevin Windham and they both went down in a heap. JS was unable to restart his machine and gave up the race while Reed put his RM-Z into the final podium position.

Grant held on, despite wrapping a Tuff Block cover into his rear wheel for the last two laps which had his wheel locked over the jumps and smoking by the time he crossed the checkered flag. Andrew Short put his Red Bull Honda into second, but couldn’t take advantage of Grant’s ailing 450F.

mack10moto -CR vs JS  January 8, 2009 12:24 PM
you guys are all idiots..
brian hearl -bubba  January 8, 2009 10:59 AM
piece of crap yamaha !!!,
Quad 45 -JLaw  January 6, 2009 06:16 PM
Why in the hell is j. Lawerance placed 5th has the AMA just given up on this guy. He cut the track and should be docked a lap it's only fair.
bubbafan259 -bubbas, bike wouldn,t restart  January 6, 2009 11:34 AM
Has anyone heard why bubbas bike wouldn,t restart? I wonder if something broke when windhams bike hit him?
Steve M -Reed/Stewart  January 6, 2009 10:49 AM
This is racing. As JS stated "It was nobody's fault". There are no faults in racing. The collision happened because they were racing & that is the only reason. CR came around the corner sliding & JS was there it's that simple. It happens in racing every time they get on the track. If someone wants to take someone out to get the leader spot then so be it. That isn't what happened though. As for JS taking out KW that was accidental. Slam your head on the ground next to a highway & see if you don't walk into traffic.
gas_pig -Chad vs. James  January 5, 2009 11:47 PM
As much as I can't stand the sight of Chad Reed this was purely a racing incident. Go Vilapoto!
Levi -perception  January 5, 2009 05:00 PM
This is a classic example of how a group of people can look at the same thing and all see something different. The only person who really knows what happened is the person responsible, and that's STEWART!!
Too Tall Gardner San Jo -Come Come Now People  January 5, 2009 02:59 PM
Those of you who think Reed took out James are really missing some good racing? As noted from other comments, James's bike must have either missed a gear, bogged or his hand came off the throttle cause he just rolled out of that corner...He was not focused on the first 3 laps but started settling down until that happened, none the less great seasoned opener, and Great Job Ryan Villapoto...watch this kid kick some ass !!!
Lucas Bulach -Lawrence Dungey cheating  January 5, 2009 12:37 PM
did anyone see lawerence dungey cut the track? he could have easily and safely got back where he was!!!! the announcer said it was 5 or 6 seconds he cut off! who knows what could have happened if he did that part of the track he could have wreaked or found a battle with another racer. i dont think its right that AMA only dropped him back 1 position, he should have been disqualified:
bob -stewarts a pussy  January 5, 2009 11:07 AM
stewart is such a puss
SteveO -Frady CATS  January 5, 2009 09:33 AM
LOL!!! It's fair to say that everyone loves Stewart, but c'mon...you gotta be able to admit when he makes a mistake!! No one's used to seeing Reed on Stewarts A** like that...how was Reed to know that Stewart would come to a near stop like that? Reed was racing...aggressively and was on JS's rear tire...he didn't do anything wrong...Stewart even admits that he made a mistake.
chris -chad is the man  January 5, 2009 09:14 AM
i am not a stewart fan and watching stewart leave was great
bug -Chad and James  January 4, 2009 09:29 PM
I was there,chad clearly ran up on james!James was infront Chad being behind was only rider who coulda prevented the wreck.But as most of us know Chad is a dick!
262-flybye -stewart-reed  January 4, 2009 06:55 PM
i guess i'm not sure what race was being watched but when stewart missed the gear or whatever happened he clearly swerved to the left right into the path of reed and i am not a reed fan but i don't think it was a cheap shot
Sam -Jason Lawrence  January 4, 2009 06:32 PM
Did Lawrence only get docked 1 position for that bs he pulled? He should be given no points, I mean how many chances will this kid get? He is a punk and a terrible representative to our sport, I wouldn't have lost any sleep at night if the AMA never let him ride again..
old guy -stewart  January 4, 2009 05:56 PM
reedy is a dirty rider let em race outdoors if he is so tuff
Steve -Tara  January 4, 2009 04:09 PM
Very mature response!
dynoman -Stewart & Reed  January 4, 2009 01:50 PM
I looks like stewarts bike made a bobble or hesitation causing the ever so slight pause which in turn caused reed to run into him. I think that is also why reed got around him the first time, becuase JS was having some problems with hesitation out of the corners. This looks like the same issue reed had with the carburated yamaha bike. Yes the Fuel injected bikes(suzuki, kawi, honda)are easier to start when hot too and seem to have better throttle response. soo this may play a factor in the long run which may be a mistake for stewart going to yamaha. I still think reed is a dirty rider and hope JS kicks his tail.
thewall -Great battle...almost  January 4, 2009 12:51 PM
To bad Reed and Stewart collided. It looked like they would be in a head to head battle the entire race. Does Reed have the speed this year? One thing is for sure. Yamaha and KTM better get FI on their bikes next year. It's the difference between getting the bike started in five seconds compared to 10, 15, 20 seconds or not at all. Guaranteed they will lose races this year because of it. As far as the wreck, JS said he made a mistake. I don't know that he crossed Chad's line but when racing wheel to wheel if the guy upfront and a quick unanticipated drop in speed the guy behind him is nearly certain to collide into him. And it's not his fault if he does. James was pissed but at himself and probably as much as anything not being able to get the bike restarted. He knows he can pull a podium even from 20-30 seconds back. But the bike has to be at least running to get a chance to do it.
Tara -Stewart and Reed  January 4, 2009 12:31 PM
Thank you Steve for not being a total idiot about the Stewart/Reed crash. Stewart even admitted on camera HE made the mistake not Chad Reed.
Mark -Bubba Crash  January 4, 2009 12:22 PM
Bubba admitted he messed up, twice. Once slowing down and crossing Reeds path and then pushing his bike in front of Windham without looking. Seams like some things never change. Charlie and Steve, get some glasses.
charlie -wrong, wrong, wrong  January 4, 2009 11:56 AM
Reed took out Stewart, not the other way around. I was there, saw it on the jumbo screen. Odd that the author came to that conclusion. Nobody saw it that way. Could it be a little Reed favoritism or dislike for James Stewart?
elka450r32 -J. Law  January 4, 2009 07:33 AM
Looks like Lawrence was riding alright last night.
hondachick -Josh Hill  January 4, 2009 06:55 AM
To tomraider P.S he broke his collarbone
Hondachick. -James Stewart  January 4, 2009 06:54 AM
I missed thge race and being a huge JS fan it sucked to hear the results. Thank you to Steve because his senario does make more since. Reed is always out for the cheap shots. Also I'm sorry to say this but maybe if JS would have stayed on a Kawi or went to a Honda maybe his bike would have started!
Steve -Stewart and Reed  January 4, 2009 06:31 AM
I'm not sure what race you were watching but your description of what happened between Stewart and Reed is a little off. When Stewart passed Reed he did make a mistake in the whoops but he didn't cross in front of Reed and take out his front wheel. Stewart was clearly in front of him when he lost momentum (probably from a missed shift) resulting in Reed ran into him.
tomraider -where is josh hill in Anaheim-1  January 4, 2009 02:20 AM
where is josh hill in Anaheim-1?
