DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The intensity and drama on the AMA Supercross circuit is running high entering this Saturday’s Daytona Supercross By Honda at historic Daytona International Speedway.

In last weekend’s Supercross event at Atlanta’s Georgia Dome, longtime rivals James Stewart and TwoTwo Motorsports’ Chad Reed crashed on the final lap while battling for the lead, which opened the door for defending Daytona Supercross By Honda champion Ryan Villopoto to capture the victory and the points lead.

In what should have been an easy 1-2 finish for Reed and Stewart turned out to be disappointing third and fourth-place finish.
“Never saw it comin,’ otherwise I would’ve let him get those 3 points and took 2nd,” tweeted a disappointed Stewart a day after the race.

Entering Saturday’s Daytona Supercross, the halfway point in the 17-race AMA Supercross season, Villopoto owns a 10-point lead over Stewart in the championship standings with Reed sitting in third 21 points behind. Rounding out the top five are American Honda’s Trey Canard (25 points back) and Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey (26 points back).

The Daytona Supercross By Honda, which traditionally features on of the toughest and most challenging layouts of the season, will be designed for the fourth straight year by five-time Daytona Supercross By Honda champion and Supercross legend Ricky Carmichael.

New to the Ricky Carmichael Signature Design this year will be the placement of the starting gate, which will be located on pit road and provide fans with a great view of the first turn. The finish line will remain in the center of the track alongside the tri-oval near the fans.
