Windham wins first AMA Toyota Motocross in two years

COLUMBUS – Honda's Kevin Windham, of Centreville, Ms., picked up his first win in over two years at the Monster Energy Nice N Easy Pro Nationals Presented by Renegade Haulers, round six of the AMA Toyota Motocross Championship Presented by FMF. Kawasaki's Ben Townley, of Tallahassee, Fla., was the winner in AMA Motocross Lites action at the Unadilla Valley Sports Center.

Windham opened the day with a win in the first moto and followed it up with a strong ride to a third place finish, earning him the overall victory, the 28th of his career. Kawasaki's Timmy Ferry, of Largo, Fla., earned second place overall (5-1) with a come-from-behind win in moto two to finish second ahead of Honda's Andrew Short (6-2), of Smithville, Texas.

"I've been known through my career to have a lot of throttle control, which you need at this track," said Windham. "I come into some of these hard-packed tracks with added confidence. I was riding behind Andrew (Short) and we were kind of closing in, but toward the end I kind of broke out the calculator and started doing the math and knew I could get the win.”
