Stewie has the 450 points lead, but it Is slim.

From what the MXA wrecking crew can discern, half of the AMA Pro riders are below average in speed. That may be hard to believe and we can’t blame you for thinking that half of the licensed AMA riders were above the average in speed.

Obviously, to make Supercross racing better the AMA needs to make sure that all the riders in the field are above the average speed. Of course, the AMA is incapable of doing this because, as we all know, every person at the AMA was born illiterate.

Here are the statistic from the Anaheim II Supercross?read them fast because you have a 100 percent chance of dying.


Ryan Dungey lost 24 points to Stewart this weekend…it can happen to anyone at any time.

WHO DIDN’T QUALIFY FOR THE NIGHT PROGRAM IN AT ANAHEIM II?
To make the night program a rider must set one of the top 40 fast times. Anyone outside the top 40 is eliminated (unless the 41st rider is needed to fill a spot)

450 CLASS NON-QUALIFIERS:
This week 46 riders showed up to race the 450 class, so six riders had to watch from the stands:
1. Tye Hames
2. Jeremy O’Driscoll
3. Alberto Heredia
4. Tom Parsons
5. Jared Hicks
6. Nicholas Schmidt


Aussie Ryan Marmont is 11th in 250 West points, but if he loses ten points at the next 250 West race in San Diego he will be three full races behind the points leader. Photo:Hoppenworld

250 CLASS NON-QUALIFIERS:
There were 53 riders vying for 40 spots in the 250 West. The 13 who didn’t make the night program were:
1. Austin Howell
2. Ty Keenom
3. Erik Meusling
4. Dylan McKee
5. Joshua Jackson
6. Mike Henderson
7. Ricky Yorks
8. Martin Garcia
9. Nathan Malyszek
10. Parker Anthony
11. Lee Witt
12. Walt Van Olden
13. Damon Smith

450 POINTS STANDINGS (AND SOME VERY SIMPLE MATH)
The difference between 1st and 2nd is 3 points. The difference between 2nd and 3rd is 2 points. The difference between 5th and sixth is 1 point. The most points a rider can lose over a weekend is 25 points. Thus, once you fall 25 points behind you are a full race behind (essentially shortening your season compared to the points leaders).

450 POINTS STANDINGS
1. James Stewart…117
2. Ryan Villopoto…5 points back
ONE FULL RACE BEHIND
3. Chad Reed…27 points back
4. Trey Canard…30 points back
5. Ryan Dungey…38 points back
TWO FULL RACES BEHIND
6. Brett Metcalfe…50 points back
7. Andrew Short…53 points back
8. Kevin Windham…58 points back
9. Justin Brayton…59 points back
10. Ivan Tedesco…69 points back
11. Kyle Chisholm…71 points back
12. Davi Millsaps…73 points back
THREE FULL RACES BEHIND
13. Kyle Regal…79 points back
14. Nick Wey…82 points back
15. Chris Blose…86 points back


DeCotis (66), Davalos (23), Hansen (100) and Rutherford (795) are all in the top 15 in points, but only one of the four is on the same race.
 
250 WEST POINTS STANDINGS (AND SOME MATH)
With only nine races in the 250 West, instead of the 17 that the 450 class races, the 250 West riders can’t afford to fall a race behind because there are only four races left in the 250 West which means that only the top 13 still have a mathematical chance on winning the crown. Here are the 250 West points and what they mean:

250 POINTS STANDINGS
1. Josh Hansen…113  
2. Broc Tickle…8 point behind
3. Eli Tomac…22 points behind
ONE FULL RACE BEHIND
4. Ryan Morais…29 points behind
5. Cole Seely…43 points back
6. Ken Roczen…44 points back
TWO FULL RACES BEHIND
7. Martin Davalos…53 points back
8. Kyle Cunningham…53 points back
9. Tyla Rattray…55 points back
10. James Decotis…62 points back
11. Ryan Marmont…65 points back
12. Antonio Balbi…73 points back
13. Nick Paluzzi…74 points back
THREE FULL RACES BEHIND
