MX: Carmichael Wins 2nd

11jun06.jpg

Moto 1: Oakley’s James Stewart wearing his signature CROWBAR™ MX goggle got the hole shot in the first moto. Ricky Carmichael was second, also wearing his signature MX O FRAME® goggle and Oakley’s young phenom Davi Millsaps was third. Half way through the first moto, RC pulled in front of Stewart and they went head to head for 1st place. With about 4 laps to go, RC went down giving Stewart the win in the first moto with RC getting 2nd and Davi holding his own for 4th.

Moto 2: With the unusual starting gate that went dirt to concrete and then back to dirt again, the Oakley riders came out of the first corner in exactly the same order as the first moto, Stewart, RC and Davi Millsaps. Stewart and RC battled it out for first and second while Davi was keeping both of them honest by being only 4 bike lengths away from them. Davi having the 2nd fastest lap time of Moto 2 was very impressive, while RC had the fastest and Stewart came in with the 3rd. As the moto continued RC pulled ahead of the group, followed by Stewart and Davi. With half a lap to go, Stewart’s bike started to smoke and then eventually locked up, putting Stewart on the ground extremely hard and having to DNF for the Moto. RC went on to win the race, with Chad Reed sneaking by Davi for second and Davi Millsaps finishing out in 3rd. This was Millsaps second podium finish of the year. Stewart being banged up says he will be at Buds Creek, Maryland next weekend.
