Monster AMA Supercross notes, Houston
By Rich Winkler

Track

The Houston Supercross track is horseshit! Seriously.

Rodeo dirt, straw, sand and manure - a combination which actually makes a great surface for racing dirt bikes. Tends to set up like a traditional motocross track with braking and accelerating bumps. The track changes over the course of the night, much like an Outdoor National track does during a 30-minute plus two lap moto.

Racing

(Christophe) Pourcel did what he had to do to win the title. The best racing all night was going on behind him. In the 450 class RV (Ryan Villopoto) had a bad wreck in the whoops during practice, then barely transferred to the main out of his heat. But he pulled a smokin' holeshot, when he needed it in the main and then his teammate (Chad) Reed was up in the mix with (Kevin) Windham and (Ivan) Tedesco, leaving points leader Dungey a frustrated 5th. Could be some interesting teamwork going on with Reed and RV against (Ryan) Dungey the last four rounds.

Upcoming

The Dirt Wurx and Feld crews are in St. Louis this weekend. Things'll be really similar to Houston - great dirt, which some of the riders list St. Louis as their favorite dirt. The Stadium Floor at the Edward Jones Dome is deceptively huge. Super wide lanes, max width. So we just go for it with the build.
