The eleventh match of the 2012 AMA Supercross Series, a part of the FIM World Championship, was held last Saturday evening at the famous Lucas Oil Stadium of Indianapolis. The match was witnessed by a completely sold out crowd of about 59,900 fans. Ryan Villopoto made it a joyous night for his Kawasaki racing team as he once again walked away with the victory for the sixth time in this entire season so far. The rider from Poulsbo, Washington, showed some great skills and produced some thrilling moments on the race. Justin Brayton of team Honda came at the second spot while Davi Millsaps of team Yamaha secured the third spot.
The race track at Indianapolis was one of the finest race tracks encountered in this entire season of the AMA Supercross Series. The track had amazing dirt and was equipped with a technical layout. The main event of the match kicked off when Mike Alessi of Motoconcepts Suzuki racing team won the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot reward along with Justin Brayton of team Motoconcepts Suzuki and Marvin Musquin of team Red Bull KTM who followed Alessi in the second and third positions respectively.
Alessi made a small mistake in the fifth lap which allowed Justin Brayton to overtake him by making a quick pass to gain the lead. In the tenth lap, Ryan Villopoto showed great skills and rode beautifully to work his way out through the entire pack to go pass Brett Metcalfe of Yoshimura Suzuki to acquire the second spot. He then gave a tough fight to Brayton who was riding at the first position. Just after five laps, Ryan Villopoto skillfully overtook Brayton to gain the lead in the match which he managed to maintain till the end and finally won the race. Brayton kept on chasing him but could only finish at the second spot and for second consecutive time in this season, Davi Millsaps of the JGRMX/Toyota/Yamaha racing team acquired a third position appearance on the race podium by finishing third in the match.
The match turned out to be a game changer as many top rated title contenders could not qualify for the main event. James Stewart crashed out during his heat race and could not race in the main event. As a result, now there is hardly any contender within sight in the points table after Villopoto. Moreover, Stewart had to suffer a full 25 points decline on the points table giving Villopoto a gigantic lead in the points tally.
