Local hero Bobby Fitch wins Lites Main

AURORA, Ill., (February 11, 2006) Zach Ames shot off the gate to win the $500 Weekend Warrior hole shot award but would soon yield to Rockstar Suzuki rider Greg Schnell. Sellards tucked in behind Schnell and followed for several laps. Sellards passed Schnell near the halfway mark thus doing everything in his power to win the championship. It was then up to Yamaha’s Chad Johnson to finish third or better to secure the title. Chad was running sixth on lap 12 and put a championship pass on Zach Ames, Jeff Northrop and Kevin Johnson in the same turn to put him in third and clinch the title. By winning the title Chad Johnson was awarded a 2006 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck and $25,000.

In the AMA Arenacross Lites class, local rider Bobby Fitch, led from wire to wire to win the main event. Kawasaki rider Shawn Clark fell in the first turn on the start and started last but the Unbound Energy rider made an amazing charge to finish third.
