Round 14 of the 2013 Monster Energy Supercross kicks off at 7PM at the Minneapolis Mall of America's Field. Chad Reed took the track for early practice and will likely make the starting gate when it drops for Supercross round fourteen. After 450SX Group B Qualifying it appears that the officials have made some changes to the track. The track features a split lane section with two lines, early on in practice though, riders were not choosing the outside line and officials have attempted to even out the timing between both options.
Reed currently holds fifth in the points race with 196 points behind Barcia, Dungey, Millsaps and Villopoto. Ryan Vilopoto has eight wins on the season, coming off a win at Houston and currently leads the points race with 277 points.
The 250SX East class is led by Wil Hahn who is being chased Marvin Musquin and Blake Wharton. Blake took the number 13 across the finish line for the first time last week and is just 21 points back from the leader of the series and could potentially upset the field heading into Vegas. Can Wharton have a repeat performance in round fourteen?
Fans attending tonights racing action can get in on the round 14 Supercross Pit Party starting at 12:30 PM to 6 PM.
Although, the 450 SX race will be aired on CBS Sports today at noon today, April 14th, 2013 and the 250SX class is set to air on Speed TV on Sunday evening at 4:30PM, the results are already in.
