Indianapolis, IN - February 23, 2010 - The AMA/FIM Supercross Series moved east for the first time over the weekend to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, marking the beginning of the Eastern Regional Lites Division championship. The domed stadium provided perfect racing conditions, and shielded the riders and the crowd from the cold outside. The track proved to be a difficult one, with tricky obstacles and a slick surface that required very precise throttle control, but it made for some fantastic racing action.

The beginning of the Eastern Regional championship also meant the debut of Rockstar Energy Suzuki riders Blake Baggett and Jake Moss. Indy was Baggett's first professional Supercross, which would be enough to rattle anyone's nerves, but Blake raced like a pro and finished just outside the top ten. Jake Moss recently suffered a broken wrist, and as a result had to spend some time away from riding, but he was looking fast as he finished just behind Baggett and took 12th place in the main.

Supercross class rider Tommy Hahn was back to racing at Indy, after battling a severe case of the flu that prevented him from racing at Anaheim 3. "I was struggling at Indy," said Hahn. "It was a tough track, and I caught a really nasty bug over the weekend, and was just feeling exhausted all of last week. I'm just trying to focus on getting to 100 percent for Atlanta now." Tommy finished 7th in his heat race, and16th in the Supercross main event. He is currently 10th in the championship points standings.

With the first race of the Eastern Regional Lites championship over, and the next race in Atlanta looming ahead, the riders will be hitting the practice track hard this week, hoping to improve their chances at the podium. The next race will be at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta on Saturday, February 27.
