Reed Takes Sixth Win at Georgia Dome Before 59,651 Fans

Stewart Makes History, the All-Time 125cc Win Record

ATLANTA (February 28, 2004) – Yamaha’s Chad Reed, of Dade City, Fla., raced to his sixth THQ World Supercross GP/THQ AMA Supercross Series victory in front of 59,651 fans at the Georgia Dome. Kawasaki’s James Stewart earned his third consecutive 125cc Eastern Regional THQ AMA Supercross Series race, breaking the all-time 125cc win record (13) previously held by Jeremy McGrath.

Honda’s Damon Huffman, of Valencia, Calif., earned the $1,500 Butterfinger Holeshot Award, leading the field through turn one. Kawasaki’s Reed made his way into the lead on lap two and held on for the victory. Windham, who started mid-pack due to a block pass by Reed, moved into second place late in the race after passing Yamaha’s David Vuillemin. Vuillemin fell out of podium position when Honda rider Mike LaRocco charged through the field to pass him.

“I was riding for a win tonight, said Reed. “I need to get a streak going here. I know I have a decent points lead, but you can never have enough. I really liked the track here tonight and enjoyed the race.

In the 125cc main event, Stewart, who finished fourth in his heat race, passed the $1,000 Butterfinger Holeshot Award winner Steve Boniface on lap one to take the lead. Yamaha’s Josh Hansen, who finished second last weekend in Minneapolis, trailed close behind. Stewart pulled away from the field and Hansen held down second place until crashing on lap seven. Suzuki’s Broc Hepler, of Kittanning, Pa., secured second place late in the race and earned his second career podium finish. Yamaha’s Michael Blose, of Phoenix, Ariz., finished third, marking his first-career podium finish.

“In my heat race, I had a crash and was forced to play catch up, said Stewart. “I heard all of the fans cheering me on, and that was very inspirational. This is a special race for me because I broke Jeremy McGrath’s record and to be in the same level as him is an awesome feeling; that is why I have a McGrath jersey with me tonight.
