Reed & Wey Lead Unbound Energy Backed Racers At Indianapolis SX

CARLSBAD, Calif., (March 6, 2006) – Unbound Energy-backed Chad Reed (Yamaha) put on a patient, yet ultra-fast charge towards the end of the AMA Supercross class main event on Saturday at Indianapolis’ RCA Dome, eventually reeling in and catching another Unbound ‘energize’ racer, Nick Wey, to put himself on the podium and preserve his points lead in the premier class of the 2006 Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series.

 

Reed, who started out in sixth place after the first lap, caught Wey – who was running in third place – on lap 13. Reed then settled into third place, behind Ricky Carmichael and James Stewart to make the podium and maintain his points lead over Carmichael, which stands at 191-190 just past the midway point of the season.

 

“I thought I raced pretty well tonight,” said Reed. “I’d have like to have gotten a better start, but was able to make up a number of spots towards the end there. Nick (Wey) was riding real well. Good to see another Unbound-backed rider up there near the podium.”

 

Both Wey and Reed got out of their heat races with relative ease – Reed finishing second in the first heat race with Wey a couple spots behind in fourth. In the main event Wey pulled an excellent start – one of his best of the year – and was in third place for the majority of the race before yielding to two factory bikes late in the contest. Still, Wey was able to top no less than three factory-backed riders on the night, including Honda’s Ernesto Fonseca and Travis Preston, along with Kawasaki’s Michael Byrne.

 

“The start was definitely key,” said Wey. “And I tried my best to hold off Ivan (Tedesco) there at the end, but he was able to get by me with a couple laps to go. Had nothing to do with my conditioning, though. My trainer, RL (Randy Lawrence), has me in about as good of shape as I’ve been in. Just made a couple minor mistakes and Ivan was able to get by. I look forward to getting right back after it this weekend in Daytona.”

 

For the Unbound Energy-backed Moto XXX squad it was Tim “Red Dog” Ferry that provided the highlights at Indy. Ferry rallied from a poor showing in the first heat race (18th) to grab a podium (2nd) in his semi and raced to a solid 9th place finish in the main. Teammate Kyle Lewis didn’t have that great of a night, finishing 21st in the first heat race, 17th in the first semi and recorded a DNS in the LCQ.

 

The Unbound-backed racers return to action this weekend when Round Ten of the 2006 Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series heads back south to the Daytona International Speedway. Note: This is the only Friday (March 10th) race of the season. Action gets underway at 7:30 p.m.

 

Unbound Energy is available in 16 oz. cans at BP and am/pm retail locations, with more locations and a Sugar-Free Unbound coming soon!
