Stewart Wins First-Ever Amp'd Mobile World Supercross Win
Millsaps Picks Up First Win on a Honda in Supercross Lites Class

TORONTO (December 3, 2005) -- Kawasaki's James Stewart, of Haines City, Fla., won the first Amp'd Mobile World Supercross GP race of the season at Rogers Centre. Honda's Davi Millsaps, of Cairo, Ga., won the Supercross Lites main event.

Stewart, racing in his inaugural Amp'd Mobile World Supercross GP, won the Holeshot and lead the first three laps in the Supercross class, but crashed in turn one. Carmichael, who started fourth, worked his way into second place on lap two and moved into the lead after Stewart crashed. Stewart moved into second and swapped positions with Carmichael for the lead.

Carmichael led until lap 17 when Stewart moved into the lead and held on for his first-ever Amp'd Mobile World Supercross GP win. Carmichael finished second, while Yamaha's Chad Reed, of Menifee, Calif., finished third.

"Every time I ride I learn something new," said Carmichael. "It's always motivating to get beat when you win a lot. It makes it fun to get your butt whipped. There's only one way to go and that's to get better. I will learn from James (Stewart) and get better."

"I felt really comfortable tonight," said Stewart. "I felt really strong this year and feel like I can get this. I knew the fans really wanted a race. If you have your butt kicked last year by this guy (Carmichael), you'd come ready to race too. I have been a winner my whole life and have a lot of work to do."

Honda's Andrew Short, of Colorado Springs, Colo., jumped out to an early lead in the Supercross Lites class with KTM riders Josh Hansen, Elbert, Colo., and Nathan Ramsey, of Menifee, Calif., in second and third respectively. Short led the first six laps before pulling off the track due to a rough landing on the triple jump. Hansen led the next two laps but Millsaps made the pass on lap 9 and won his first race on a Honda.

"I felt bad that Short crashed out because I wanted to race him," said Millsaps. "I am really happy to get my first win on a Honda. This is big for me and our team." <pre> Amp'd Mobile World Supercross GP Event Results 1. James Stewart, Haines City, Fla., Kawasaki 2. Ricky Carmichael, Havana, Fla., Suzuki 3.
