Honda Red Riders Crowd the Podium in Indianapolis

AMA Supercross - Indianapolis, IN

Torrance, CA: The Honda Red Riders enjoyed the limelight at round nine of the AMA Supercross Championship in Indianapolis, IN, over the weekend, filling three podium spots in the 450SX and 250SX East classes. Nearly 60,000 race fans filled Lucas Oil Stadium to witness Muscle Milk-backed GEICO Honda rider Eli Tomac and Team Honda Muscle Milk fill-in rider Cole Seely take on one of the most grueling tracks of the season to finish an impressive two-three respectively on the podium. In the 250SX battle, GEICO Honda's Justin Bogle landed his CRF250R on the podium for a second straight weekend with a third-place effort.

450 Race

During his first showing of the season in the 450SX class, Seely impressed everyone, turning some of the fastest laps of the main event on a brutally tough track. After a third in his heat race, Seely got away to a good start on his CRF450R in the main and was among the lead group early on. Pounding out a series of successful passes, he moved into third on lap 12, where he remained until the race's end.

For the second consecutive week, Team Honda Muscle Milk's Justin Barcia did not line up on the gate due to injuries he suffered in a crash in Atlanta. Barcia is expected to return to action at the Daytona Supercross by Honda for round 10 of the series.

Cole Seely

"I had a good feeling about tonight, so to be on the podium is great. The main went well, I got off to a pretty good start and got around a couple guys pretty quickly. I battled with Brayton for a couple laps, then got around him and set my sights on Alessi and Tomac. Alessi made a mistake and I was able to get around him but never managed to get close to Tomac, so I just managed my gap on fourth for the last few laps. You really had to ride consistent and smart every lap because the track was really tough and deteriorating so fast. I can't thank Honda enough for giving me this opportunity and my team for letting me take it."
