CORONA, Calif., (April 16, 2012) – The Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans was host to a memorable night of Monster Energy Supercross for the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki race team.
Darryn Durham has been searching for a Supercross Lites East main event win all season, and he finally found what he was looking for in New Orleans. He navigated his Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki machine into the early lead and held strong to take a career-first win in the Lites class! He is tied for second overall in the Supercross Lites East Championship. Congratulations Darryn!
Blake Baggett finished in the runner-up spot, giving the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team a 1-2 finish in New Orleans. He sits fifth overall in the Supercross Lites East Championship.
Broc Tickle suffered from an early-race incident that pushed him to the back of the pack. He remounted and started picking riders off one-by-one. He charged back into top-ten territory, and finished the race in tenth. He now sits tenth overall in the Supercross Class Championship.
The Supercross Lites East Region now takes a two-week hiatus as Supercross Lites West jumps back into the scene. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Dean Wilson will now make his way to Seattle's Century Link Field with the points lead in Supercross Lites East, while teammate, Tyla Rattray, will continue to recover from injuries sustained earlier in the season. Broc Tickle will head to Seattle to continue on in the Supercross Class.
