Reed delivers Discount Tire Racing first victory of 2014
For immediate release: 19 January 2014
Discount Tire Racing/TwoTwo Motorsports Chad Reed has raced to an
emotional victory at the third round of the 2014 AMA Supercross at
Anaheim’s Angel Stadium.
The win, which was Reed’s 42nd in the premier class and his first in
22 starts, sees him match Jeremy McGrath and James Stewart with eight
wins at Angel Stadium.
Reed, who was sixth on the opening lap of the race, proved he was
back to his best, moving to fourth on Lap 7 of the 20-lap final. The
Australian got around Round 1 winner Ken Roczen on Lap 14 and then
sailed past race career long rival James Stewart to take the race lead
with three laps remaining.
“This win was a long-time coming and I worked way too hard to get it. My other race wins came a lot easier,” Reed said.
“Last year was just so gnarly, in the fact that I was just emotional
week in, week out. We just made so many changes and when you’re 31
you’re the old guy out there and start to second guess yourself a bit.
“That was when I just knuckled down, made the choices that I felt
were right and I’m very, very thankful to Discount Tire for sponsoring
the program and allowing me to do what I love to do.
“I am so proud of my team and I really want to thank everyone for sticking with me,” Reed added.
Earlier in the night Reed was honoured in champions parade to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Supercross.
Reeds win sees him move to third in the Monster Energy AMA
Supercross, an FIM World Championship standings with 57 points, just
three points shy of series leader Ken Roczen.
