Supercross Stats To Date

Courtesy the mx think tank known as Motocross Illustrated, here's some very interesting information about the supercross season so far...

AMA Supercross Class Laps Led:

James Stewart 131

Ricky Carmichael 40

Chad Reed 39

Kevin Windham 5

Nick Wey 2

Eric Sorby 3

AMA Supercross Lites Class Laps Led:

Ryan Villopoto 84

Christophe Pourcel 17

Ryan Dungey 14

Jason Lawrence 3

Steve Boniface 1

Ben Towley 15

Darcy Lange 1

Two things dramatically stand out:

1) James Stewart, of course. The DIFFERENCE ALONE between his lap count and the second highest ranked racer equals more laps led than anyone who has led a lap this season, COMBINED. In other words... that's a lotta laps!

2) Ryan Villopoto had absolutely ZERO competition, that is, once Chris Pourcel injured himself.

On to Daytona!

For me, I'd rather see Carmichael on a motocross track anyway. Hopefully the Nascar thing won't take up ALL of his time.
