Chad Reed picked up a pivotal win this weekend before 45,445 fans at Texas Stadium. With that win he tightened the point standings with two rounds remaining in the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP/Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series.

In the main event Oakley’s Ricky Carmichael grabbed the Hole shot Award to start the 20-lap feature. Oakley’s James Stewart then passed RC for the lead on lap four. Trouble then hit Carmichael first as he exited stage left in the whoops and took out two photographers and himself. Bubba started to pull out a lead over Reed, then he misjudged a timing section and jumped completely off the side of the track, handing the lead to Reed. Once out front, Reed cruised to the easy win. Stewart charged back to finish second, as RC climbed back up to sixth.

Bubba leaves Dallas with a seven point lead over Carmichael in the standings for the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP. In the standings for the Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series, Carmichael now holds a two-point lead over Reed, with Stewart trailing by 10 points in third with only two rounds remaining.
