Terex Australian Supercross Series
Round Three – Toowoomba

The third round of the Terex Australian Supercross Series took place in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia, Saturday night, with Chad Reed and Ryan Marmont taking the wins in the Open and Lites classes, respectively. Marmont’s win closes the point gap between he and American Gavin Faith, who leads the Lites by nine markers and Reed is now within 15 points of Jay Marmont in the Open ranks.

For Reed, this season is his first time back racing in his homeland since 2010, as he and the promoters did not see eye-to-eye on a handful of issues last year. His return comes to the delight of the Aussie’s, who pulled for Reed to come through a Facebook promotion. Despite missing the first round, there is still a chance for a title, as he won both rounds two and three. Rains hit throughout the night and turned the 15-lap Open race into a muddy affair. Reed took control of the race in the early going and stretched a nine-second lead over second place, Ben Townley. Todd Waters rounded off the podium, while series point leader Jay Marmont finished fourth.

The skies opened again during the Pro Lites Main, but this did not damper the battle between Kade Mosig and Ryan Marmont. The two went at in the red muck and at the flag, it was Marmont taking the win. American Gavin Faith took the final spot on the podium, which was his first loss of the series.
