Monday Kickstart Presented by One Industries – Jacksonville

Just when we thought the 2011 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series was tapped out of drama and suspense, the Jacksonville Supercross set a new precedent, throwing a gigantic monkey wrench into the points chase in both classes. Villopoto and Brayton fail to make the 450 main, Baggett and Anderson fail to make the Lites main, both Stewart brothers fail to finish a full lap of their respective main events, the carnage on the track was overwhelming…

Jacksonville's stadium is huge, to say the least. It seats around 80,000, so the fan fare that showed up to take in the racing action didn't exactly pack the house. Despite the somewhat small crowd, however, the racing action was unrivaled.

Blake Baggett has dreamed of racing a Pro Circuit bike as long as he can remember, and now that he has the great opportunity, he has taken full advantage of the guidance coming from owner/manager Mitch Payton.

Just when we thought we’d seen all the drama Jacksonville had to offer, James Stewart and Matt Goerke wadded exiting the first turn of the main event. Stewart hobbled, then crawled off of the track before collapsing in pain. He was carted off the track by the Asterisk Medical Unit, but according to the JS7 camp, he will be racing next weekend in Toronto despite being incredibly sore and banged up.

Austin Stroupe was back in action this weekend, and the young Valli Yamaha rider looked pretty fast, although he did have a few miscues in practice while trying to throw down a fast lap. In spite of that, he finished the night in eighth place.

We’ve seen tuff block covers get stuck in wheels, rotors, chains, etc., but it is rare that the block itself gets stuck. Tye Simmonds found out that they can, indeed, find their way into the inner workings of the bike. The entire block got lodged in between his forks and frame.
