AMA/EA Supercross results: LaRocco maintains third in series points
12 March 2000
2000 AMA/EA Supercross Series, Round 9: Daytona International Speedway, Daytona, Florida, March 11, 2000 Honda-supported Mike LaRocco put in one of the most impressive rides of the day at round nine of the AMA/EA Sports Supercross Series in Daytona International Speedway, coming from nearly last after a first-lap pileup to fifth on his Team Amsoil/Factory Connection/Jack in the Box Honda CR250R. The most astounding ride was that of Ricky Carmichael, who dominated the main event so thoroughly en route to his first 250cc supercross victory that he lapped all but runner-up Jeremy McGrath and third-place David Vuillemin. LaRocco maintains third in points behind McGrath and Vuillemin as the second half of the season gets underway. In 125s, Team FMF/Honda racer Brock Sellards maintained his AMA 125cc Eastern Region Supercross Series points lead with a runner-up finish behind Travis Pastrana, who won for the first time in his short professional career. Sunday, March 12 will feature 59th Daytona 200 by Arai Superbike Classic. The race will be televised later that day at 5:30pm (EST) on ESPN2.
