Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda rider Cole Seely has had one heck of a season thus far. In addition to winning Anaheim 2 and battling tooth-in-nail with Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson for the Western Regional 250 Supercross Championship, Seely was recruited to fill in for the injured Trey Canard on the Muscle Milk Honda team, starting with last weekend’s Indy Supercross. Seely shocked many by finishing a solid third aboard the factory Honda CRF450R, and hopes to enjot similar success at this weekend’s Daytona Supercross and also at the following event in Detroit.

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.
