Reed Takes Home 10th THQ World Supercross GP/THQ AMA Supercross Series Win

Kawasaki¿s Tedesco Clinches First Career 125cc Western Regional Championship

DALLAS (April 17, 2004) – Yamaha¿s Chad Reed, of Dade City, Fla., won his 10th THQ World Supercross GP/THQ AMA Supercross Series race at Texas Stadium in front of 41,276 fans. Kawasaki¿s Ivan Tedesco, of Murrieta, Calif., clinched the 125cc THQ AMA Western Regional Supercross Series championship.

In the 250cc class, Kevin Windham, of Centerville, Miss., placed his Honda in front of the pack through turn one, earning the $1,500 Butterfinger Holeshot Award in front of Reed and Honda¿s Mike LaRocco. Reed passed Windham on lap three and held on for his 10th win of the season. On lap four, Yamaha¿s David Vuillemin, of Murrieta, Calif., passed LaRocco, of Murrieta, Calif., but was re-passed by LaRocco late in the race. Windham was second and LaRocco was third.

¿The lappers were tough tonight,¿ said Reed. ¿It takes 20 solid laps to win these races, and that is what I did tonight. I raced hard every lap and came away with another win. This has been a great season for me.¿

Honda¿s Nathan Ramsey won the $1,000 Butterfinger Holeshot Award in the 125cc class with Tedesco in second through turn one. On lap two, Tedesco and Ramsey swapped positions three times before Tedesco pulled away with the lead. The next lap, Tedesco¿s teammate, Stephane Roncada, traded places with Ramsey, allowing Tedesco to extend his lead. The win marked Tedesco¿s sixth win of the season. Ramsey finished second and Honda¿s Greg Schnell finished third.

¿This season I worked hard on winning races and not the championship,¿ said Tedesco. ¿I have been waiting my whole life for this championship, and it feels so great to finally accomplish this goal.¿
