RM-Z rider and two-time Supercross Champion, Chad Reed, was the talk of the evening as he finished third overall, adding to his impressive hall of fame record with a total of podium finishes. He used great starts on his Suzuki RM-Z and excellent line choices to remain steady throughout the remaining three main events in the unique Triple Crown format which rewards speed and consistency. My top priority is to continue improving in those areas, so I can have a shot at winning one of these things! Still recovering from a rib injury sustained in San Diego, the year-old showed comfort on the RM-Z in Detroit but dealt with tightness during the night program which left him 13th overall. I feel that Chad getting on the podium should help all of us keep working hard to get the results that our team deserves. In the East, Alex Martin once again showed his pace by placing third-fastest in combined qualifying.

Who is closest to him? Nick Wey? Ryan Sipes, still on a little bike too. Just kidding. Cheers, Crush
He is a multi-time supercross and motocross champion and the record holder for most main event starts in AMA Supercross history, with starts as of , with his career spanning almost 20 years, he was taught from a young age as being capable of competing at the sports most elite level. As a small child, Chad owned a horse named Fern. After his cousin Craig Anderson started riding a bike, Chad instantly discovered his love for motorcycles and made the decision to trade in his much-loved horse in place for his first ever bike - a Yamaha PW50; the family soon purchased a small property located just outside of Kurri Kurri in NSW. The 25 acre property was overgrown with thick bushland, and was yet to even have a house or electricity on the land; the family went to the property to clear the tea tree shrubs by hand at any spare chance they could find, which resulted in the family home being built along with several tracks for Chad to practice on.
