2010 San Diego Supercross Results

Saturday, February 6, 2010
Davi Millsaps took a surprising win at the fifth round of 2010 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series in San Diego tonight. The Red Bull Honda-backed CRF450R rider moved around Monster Energy Kawasaki's Nick Wey on the third lap of the 20-lap final and then pulled away to a relatively easy victory – his first win in nearly two years. According to the Millsaps, it was the longest race of his life.

Davi Millsaps claimed his first win in almost two years in San Diego.
“This is amazing,” said Millsaps. “Especially to have my whole crew here for this race. They’ve been behind me through all the hard times and they just kept telling me I could win and I was glad to finally get it for them.”

Track conditions played a major role in tonight’s race after off-and-on showers left the Qualcomm Stadium track in less than desirable condition. As usual, the Dirt Wurx crew did an unbelievable job of salvaging the situation, but deep ruts still developed in a few of the corners and the course was treacherously slippery. 

Josh Hill claimed his third-straight runner-up finish, taking advantage of a nasty crash by Red Bull Honda’s Andrew Short to move into third and then passing Valli Motorsports Yamaha’s Ivan Tedesco with two laps to go. Hill felt he might have been able to catch Millsaps if he had started his charge a little earlier.

“I was just too tentative at the beginning,” said Hill. “If I could have got going just five laps sooner I might have been able to win it. I’m learning every single weekend and I’m getting faster each time I go out. It’s going to end up being an exciting year.”

Tedesco held on for third, his first podium of the year.

“To get up on the box you gotta push the envelope and I got squirrelly a few times out there,” said Tedesco. “Luckily I didn’t go down and I ended up on the podium. I’m stoked to be up here; it’s definitely better than the last few weeks. Hopefully I can get some momentum off this.”
Josh Hill got his third-straight runner-up finish.
Josh Hill was second for the third consecutive time on his San Manuel Yamaha.

After three-straight podiums to start the season, series points leader Ryan Dungey finished off the box for the second race in a row. After sliding out in the first turn and then crashing again before the end of the opening lap, the Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider still managed to work his way up into sixth by the end of the race, but saw his 16-point lead in the series standings shrink to just four points over Hill.

Last week’s winner, Ryan Villopoto, also got a bad start, but was able to salvage fourth on his Monster Energy Kawasaki and sits in third overall, 10 points down from Dungey.

Lites
In the AMA Supercross Lites class, Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer claimed his fourth win in five starts, passing GEICO Powersports Honda’s Trey Canard on the first lap of the race to take the lead and then holding on to the finish. Canard went down during the pass, allowing teammate Blake Wharton to inherit the runner-up position. Wharton went down a little later, leaving second to Star Racing’s Max Anstie. Anstie actually challenged Weimer for the lead at the midway point of the race, but was held up by a lapper and dropped off the pace. On the final lap, Anstie went down, leaving Troy Lee Designs Honda teammates Cole Seeley and Wil Hahn with second and third.

Jake Weimer made it four wins in five races at San Diego.

Hurt -No KTM's  February 7, 2010 07:22 AM
I'm dissappointed no KTM's were on the podium
Chris -Absent  February 7, 2010 05:23 AM
You know, as much as I am a fan of Chad, I think that his and Bubba's sudden injures this year was the best thing that has happened to the sport in a long time! By now we would have already figured out who the points winner was going to be. This has given all the "2nd fiddle" guys a chance to show really how talented they are. It has also made for some really good races where we don't know who the winner is going to be before the gate even drops.
