    Ever since Reed's mishap with his front wheel (causing a DNF), there's been an influx of pit carts toting down wheels to trackside. We saw Monster/PC do it, along with several others, but we gotta ask - is it really feasible? How many times has this happened in recent memory? Sure, it's always smart to be prepared but... where does it end? Do you bring chains, bars, radiators down too? It's a 15-20 lap sprint, how is changing a wheel going to help, not to mention that if somebody breaks a wheel there's a good chance the rider will be broken too (although that wasn't the case with Reed).
    Skippy, out. This other guy here, Chad Reed, he was also a favorite to win the title that he’s owned twice before in his career. After a miserable start last weekend in Anaheim where he DNF due to a mechanical, Reedy needed to put-up or shut-up in Phoenix and... he did neither. Instead, he came together with Stewart in dramatic fashion during the main event and ended up breaking his hand in the process. Whether or not that crash was Reed’s fault or Stewart’s fault, and whether or not it was pre-meditated (there were theories that Reed was following Stewart in the main waiting for a chance to take him out) really doesn’t matter now - neither of these guys are going to be the 2010 Supercross Champion, and that’s all that really matters. So now, we’ve gone from a Perfect Storm of great competition in the premier class to an unexpected mix of rookies and a few veterans mixed in up at the front. This is good and bad, we’ll talk about the ups and downs further into our report...
    These are the guys who make up the pack just behind the leaders. Andrew Short, Justin Brayton, Kevin Windham (not shown here) and Davi Millsaps. Ignore that #1 guy behind them. This, however, may change, as so many top guys are now out of the mix in the Supercross class already in this young season. Reed: Out, Stewart: Questionable, Grant: Out. Hell, there's the podium right there. At this point it looks like the kids are taking over and, with the exception of an occasional flash of brilliance by Millsaps, it looks like Hill, Dungey and Villo will own the podiu for a while.
    I love when they do the fireworks behind the start at Daytona, but it’s surprisingly hard to capture. In fact, ever since this shot, I’ve never been able to do it again. 2006. Canon 1D Mark 2, 300mm. (Jeff Kardas Photo)
    Shorty hopes to put in a good showing this weekend to anchor his 2nd place in the standings.
    That's right, John Dowd is 44 years old and yes, you're hearing this right: He finished 3rd overall at the 2009 Southwick National. Dowdy used his decades of experience at the sandy track to come from way back in moto one to finish up 10th, then spent the entire 2nd moto picking off young factory rider after young factory rider until there was only one left - Goerke. While the Junkyard Dog couldn't quite reel in the new Yamaha factory rider (who's about 20 years younger), he kept him honest to come across the line in 2nd. The 10-2 was good enough for 3rd overall.
    Chad Reed is all smiles on the podium!
