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.
