Corona, CA - At the conclusion of an incredibly eventful race in St. Louis, MSR riders Kevin Windham and Nick Wey were able to land their MSR gear inside the top five of the Supercross class results. Windham was coming off a Monster Energy AMA Supercross season best second place, while Wey was looking to improve on his 11th place showing in Houston. Both riders put in a good heat race and transferred to the main event with fifth and seventh place gate picks.
Wey took the Spike Holeshot Award and led the pack for just under two laps in his MSR Rider Inspired “NYK” gear. Nick was eventually shuffled back a few positions, where he would find himself in a battle for the fourth spot with former Supercross champion Chad Reed. Wey put on an inspiring ride, withstood the pressure and never relinquishing the spot. This fourth place would mark Wey’s best Supercross finish this season.
Windham did not get the start that he was hoping for and completed the first lap of the main event in seventh position. It took Kevin a little while to get going in the early parts of the race, but by lap six he was on the move and inside the top five. Just passed the halfway point Villopoto went down and handed over second place to the charging Windham. K-Dub then made a late race charge at Dungey, closing the gap to just over two seconds with a few laps to go. Ultimately, lappers and minor mistakes forced him to settle in to the second position, for the second week in a row.
Throughout the day’s events, Windham was sporting the 2011 MSR NXT “Scan” gear. Look for a few more sneak peaks at the 2011 line as the Supercross series dwindles down.
