Reed Holds off Windham for Third Race Win

Once Again, Tedesco Wins 125cc Main

SAN DIEGO (January 24, 2004) – Yamaha’s Chad Reed, of Dade City, Fla., raced to his third THQ World Supercross GP/THQ AMA Supercross Series victory at Qualcomm Stadium in front of 61,062 fans. For the fourth-consecutive weekend, Kawasaki’s Ivan Tedesco, of Murrieta, Calif., won the THQ AMA Supercross Series 125cc Western Regional main event.

Series points leader Reed won the $1,500 Butterfinger Holeshot Award with Honda rider Kevin Windham close behind as they exited turn one. Throughout the race the two passed one another several times, but on lap 14 Reed made the final move and held on for the win.

“I saw the halfway mark of the race and had to start making my move,” said Reed. “I knew I had to make my move, but needed to be patient. I followed Kevin around and learned a lot from his lines.”

Honda’s Greg Schnell, of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., earned the $1,000 Butterfinger Holeshot Award in the 125cc main as Kawasaki’s Stephane Roncada, Lake Elsinore, Calif., followed in second early on. By the completion of lap one, Roncada moved into the field. His teammate, Tedesco, who has won the first three races of the series, started mid-pack and moved into second place on lap six. Tedesco passed Roncada for the lead on lap eight and held on for the win. On the same lap, Honda’s Nathan Ramsey passed Roncada for second and Travis Preston moved into third.
