Monster AMA Supercross notes, Seattle
By Rich Winkler

Seattle Track

That had to be the softest, most Jelloey SX track we’ve ever built in the history of Dirt Wurx. The dirt was mostly sand and it was saturated before we even trucked it into the stadium. Miserable to work with. We covered it after it was built and it just kept raining. The ruts were case-deep in every corner.

We did manage to pump most of the water out from between lanes one and two, where it was standing for two days. At the start of the main Chad Reed ended up getting pushed up and over the berm and right into the pond we’d pumped out from between the lanes. He was laying there in the water, soaking wet, and in last place. Bit of poetic justice all the Dirt Wurx guys were thinking (laughter) due to Reed’s recent online comments.

Racing

Kevin Windham was amazing. Guys were foot paddling all over the track and Windham was riding like it wasn’t even wet, tripling and railing corners. The poor conditions had absolutely no effect on K-Dub and the crowd really appreciated it. One of the most impressive main event rides I’ve seen in 30 years of supercross.

Upcoming

It’s supposed to start raining on Tuesday afternoon in Salt Lake City and not let up through Saturday’s race.
