CARMICHAEL WINS AND PASTRANA CLINCHES–APRIL 7

CARMICHAEL WINS AND PASTRANA CLINCHES–APRIL 7


Ricky Carmichael’s tenth consecutive Supercross victory was business as usual for the young Team Chevy Trucks Kawasaki star. It was one of his most dominant performances of the year, leading every lap and winning by over 10 seconds. In the past weeks, Carmichael has been dogged by a cold, but this time he was completely healthy. Kevin Windham made some brief challenges early in the race, but in the end, Carmichael was flawless, with Ezra Lusk cutting his way forward to finish second. Jeremy McGrath was a half lap behind in fourth.


The real news was in the 125 class where Nate Ramsey battled with a slightly injured Travis Pastrana. Ramsey won the battle, Pastrana the war. In fact Pastrana only had to finish seventh to clinch the 125 east title, so his second-place finish was overkill. Earlier in the month, Pastrana was hot to ride in the 250 class as well, and last week he gave it a try. But a mid-air collision with Mike LaRocco and the harsh words that followed gave him a reality check; take care of business first in the 125 class. Travis did just that despite twisting his knee in practice.
