Two-time AMA 450 Supercross Champion Chad Reed scored his 132nd top-three position at Saturday’s Detroit Supercross aboard his JGRMX/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing RM-Z450.
Reed finished third overall in the Triple Crown Event and moved into eighth place in the series after eight rounds as he continues to deliver strong results at the mid-point of the season. In the first race of the evening, “Speedy” raced with the leaders before finishing third. He used great starts on his Suzuki RM-Z450 and excellent line choices to remain steady throughout the remaining main events in the unique format which rewards speed and consistency.
“Finishing third in the first main was a great step,” said Reed. “I was super excited to get back on the podium, which was my 132nd top-three finish. I’ll take the small wins from the weekend. My top priority is to continue improving in those areas, so I can have a shot at winning one of these things!”
450 teammate Justin Hill was fast in qualifying, logging a strong top-10 time. Still recovering from a rib injury sustained in San Diego, the 23-year-old showed comfort on the RM-Z450 in Detroit but dealt with tightness during the night program which left him 13th overall.
