Brock Sellards cuts Chad Johnson’s points lead in half at Hampton

Jim Chester makes it two in a row for AMA Arenacross Lites victory

AURORA, Ill., (Jan. 28, 2006) Brock Sellards took his Honda wire to wire for the second night in a row in the AMA National Arenacross main event.  The Tuff Honda rider received a lot of help along the way as various riders held off points leader Chad Johnson.  Team Faith’s Kevin Johnson finished second with Jeff Northrop third.  Chad Johnson was mid-pack off the gate and had to play catch up all night.  When they locked the building at the end of the night Sellards cut the lead to just seven points.

Jim Chester took his frustration out on the track winning the AMA Arenacross Lites main after being unable to make the main in the AMA Arenacross class.  Roy Horton and Joshua Schmitt completed the podium.
