Stewart Tops Houston Practice Session
James Stewart was quickest in practice at round 13 of the Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series, held in Houston’s Reliant Stadium. The Team Kawasaki rider was over a second faster than Makita Suzuki’s Ricky Carmichael, posting a 42.814-second lap, compared to Carmichael’s 44.352. Team Honda’s Travis Preston was impressive as well, logging the third fastest time with a 45.620.
Team Yamaha’s Chad Reed turned the fourth quickest time, with a 45.661, but later fell on his shoulder coming out of a tight turn and remained on the ground for a few seconds before his mechanic helped him to his feet. After sitting on the side of the track for a while, Reed returned to the track and finished the session.
In the Lites division, Team Honda’s Davi Millsaps led the field with a 45.427-second lap, while Sobe/Samsung/Mobile/Honda’s Josh Grant was next with a 46.417. Grant’s teammate Tommy Hahn was third fastest with a 46.499.
Tonight is the final round of the East Region Lites Series and Millsaps only needs to finish 17th to clench his first-ever Supercross title.
