Reed Takes Home Fourth Win of the Season
Ramsey Wins, Breaking Tedesco's Streak

SAN FRANCISCO (February 7, 2004) - Yamaha's Chad Reed, of Dade City, Fla., won his fourth THQ World Supercross GP/THQ AMA Supercross Series race at SBC Park in front of 39,621 fans. Honda's Nathan Ramsey, of Menifee, Calif., won his first THQ AMA Supercross Series 125cc Eastern Regional race, breaking Kawasaki rider Ivan Tedesco's five-race win streak.

Kawasaki's Michael Byrne, of Temecula, Calif., earned the $1,500 Butterfinger Holeshot Award. Reed and rival Kevin Windham entered the first turn in the middle of the pack, while Byrne tangled with Langston on lap 2 and went down. Windham, of Centerville, Miss., crashed in the whoops and remounted in last place. Reed moved into the lead by lap four and held on for the remaining 16 laps. Reed's teammate, David Vuillemin, of Murrieta, Calif., passed Honda's Mike LaRocco late in the race to take over second place.

"It feels great to get back here in the number-one position," said Reed. "I had a bad start and had to be patient to get to the front."

Tedesco, who won his heat race earlier in the evening by a wheel, earned the $1,000 Butterfinger Holeshot Award with Nathan Ramsey, Brock Sellards and Travis Preston following. Preston, of Hesperia, Calif., passed Sellards on lap four and took over third place. On lap 12 of 15, Ramsey made his move around Tedesco after battling with him for most of lap 11.

"I have been trying all season and still have plenty of confidence, but tonight it paid off," said Ramsey. "I hope that I can continue to ride up front for the rest of the season."

"I had the flu last night, so I came into tonight's race a little tired," said Tedesco. "Around lap 10, I started to really winded."
