The eighth race of the 2012 AMA Supercross series, a part of the FIM World Championship, will be held at the famous Georgia Dome of Atlanta. It will also be the second race of the Eastern Regional Supercross Lites Class Series. The Georgia Dome is famous and unique for its red clayed race track. Though we will miss Chad Reed for the remaining series, we expect another thriller of a match at Atlanta too.
The Georgia Dome of Atlanta will play as the host to the eighth race of the 2012 season of the AMA Supercross Series, a part of the FIM World Championship. It will also be the second match of the Eastern Regional Supercross Lites Class Series. The Georgia Dome has the finest infrastructure and will provide great facilities in this tour. Every match at Atlanta turns out to be a full house event. All the 70,000+ seats of the Georgia Dome gets entirely sold out much before the match kicks off. Every match becomes a special event and an exceptional one.
The famous red clay of the Georgia stadium gives a unique surface for the racing track which makes it very interesting. The photos of the race come out to be very unusual which are highly distinguishable from the other racing tracks. In the recent years, it seemed that the soil of Georgia has been obtained from different other locations and isn’t exactly the same as it was in the previous years. Regardless of that, the soil of the race track will be slightly damp and possibly semi-hard pack in nature similar to the one we saw last Saturday at Dallas, Texas.
At Dallas, the points table of this series saw several changes after Chad Reed of team TwoTwo Motorsports suffered a catastrophic crash during the main event of the seventh race of the AMA Supercross series. When Chad Reed and the defending champion Ryan Villopoto were racing at a high pace in the 7th lap of the main event, it was at that time when Chad Reed came across an obstacle in the track and immediately pummeled onto the ground beside his bike. Following his accident, Villopoto quickly gained on it managed to acquire a healthy lead.
Reed's crash made him incur some serious injuries in his knee, ribs and vertebrae. He will have to undergo knee surgery and will be out from the remainder of the matches of this season of the AMA Supercross series. It was only Reed who had the potential to give Villopoto a tough fight and it was entirely visible in the races held so far in this season. At Dallas, Ryan Villopoto registered his third consecutive win of this season and by far his fourth win in the 2012 AMA Supercross series.
