2010 AMA Pro Supercross in Seattle, WA

Supercross in Seattle! The first race here was held on February 18th, 1978 and Jimmy Ellis won on a Honda. It was his first and only win on a Honda. But that was 32 years ago and on Saturday the gate will drop for the 39th time in Seattle. Proving that Seattle is no joke for these 2010 Supercross riders.

It will be the sixth time an AMA Supercross class race has been held at Qwest Field. From 1978-1999, AMA Supercross races were held in the Seattle King dome.

First time winners in Seattle include: Darrel Shultz (1981), Rick Johnson (1984), Jeff Ward(1984), Larry Ward (1990), Ryan Villopoto (2009)

Jake Anstett of Port Angeles is hoping to add his name to the list of first time winners of the Seattle AMA Supercross. Jake  currently sits #1 in the class AMA / Pro division for Washington state.

If rising GEICO Powersprts Honda star Trey Canard could combine his regular Lites West results with the points he earned while filling in for Andrew Short on the AMA Supercross tour, he’d have one of the top average finishes in the sport.

Canard has two victories and an astonishing nine podium finishes in 12 starts this season to lead GEICO Powersports Honda teammates Kevin Windham and Blake Wharton into this weekend’s AMA Monster Energy Supercross event at Qwest Field.Seattle:

The Oklahoman rode a 250cc bike for the first six races of the Lites West schedule then switched to a 450cc bike for another six events.

Dungey, of Belle Plaine, Minn., extended his points lead of Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto last weekend in St. Louis, extending his points lead to 36. As a rookie in the premier class, Dungey joined Jeremy McGrath, Kevin Windham, and Ryan Villopoto as riders to win St. Louis in both classes.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki has already earned one AMA Supercross Lites title in 2010 and Jake Weimer while looking to bring home the second starting this week in Seattle. Weimer holds a 14-point lead in the series with two races remaining and he is ready to add another No. 1 plate to the door of Mitch Payton’s transporter.
