House Town: Houston Supercross

You wanna know what's going down in House Town?  GuyB has the pre-race pics up at VitalMX.

At 71,000 seats, Houston's Reliant is the biggest stadium the MESS has visited so far this year.  There are definitely enough motocross fans in the area to fill the house; hope they turn out because it's looking to be one hot show!
Chad Reed qualified in 9th, turning a 49.831. 
James Stewart "won" qualifying again, after laying down a 48.568 in second practice.  Look at all those empty seats.  Where is everybody?  Partying in the pits?

This 6th round of the series marks the beginning of the East region championship for 250cc motorcycles, featuring a new cast of characters, er, racers contesting the title.

Monster Pro Circuit's Dean Wilson sits in 3rd place in the 250 class, with a lap of 49.996.
Ryan Sipes put his DNA Shred Stix Yamaha on top of the little bike leaderboard by setting a fast lap of 49.583.
