The legendary Daytona International Speedway played host to round number nine of the 2010 AMA Supercross series on Saturday night, and for the second week in a row, Honda Red Bull Racing newcomer Trey Canard scored a very impressive podium finish!
Daytona is widely regarded as the most physically grueling Supercross of them all, proving that Trey’s second-place finish in Atlanta last weekend was anything but a fluke.
Canard kicked off his Daytona campaign by finishing second in Supercross Heat 2, easily qualifying for the night’s main event. When the gates dropped for the final, Canard rocketed down the long start straight and into a top-five position through turn number one.
From there, Trey methodically picked off two more riders, moving into the third spot by lap number five. Putting distance on the riders behind him, Canard looked like a seasoned veteran as he motored in with his second-straight podium.
“This is like a dream come true,” Trey commented after the race. “To be on the podium in Daytona is a tough thing to do, so I’m really stoked right now. All the guys at Honda Red Bull Racing have been really supportive, so I can’t thank them all enough!”
Davi Millsaps pulled another top-five finish in Daytona, holding his overall position at fourth in the series points standings.
Canard and the rest of the Honda squad look to extend their podium streak as the series heads north of the border to Toronto, Canada next weekend for round number 10.
