AMA Supermoto comes to Road America’s Briggs & Stratton Motorplex
PICKERINGTON, Ohio (May 30, 2006) -- Doug Henry surprised himself with a pair of victories in the AMA Supermoto Championship presented by Parts Unlimited season opener in Fontana, Calif., in April. The Graves Yamaha rider hopes to continue his remarkable comeback as the series gets back underway at Road America’s Briggs & Stratton Motorplex this Saturday, June 3 in Elkhart Lake, Wis.
Henry is no stranger to making comebacks from injury. In 1995 Henry broke his back in a terrifying motocross crash at Budd Creek, Md., while dueling with Jeremy McGrath for the lead. Doctors said Henry would never race again, but come back he did. He won the AMA Motocross Championship in 1998. A year ago at Road America Henry beat World Supermoto Champ Thierry Van den Bosch in one of the most exciting AMA Supermoto races yet. But two rounds later he suffered a bad crash at the Copper Mountain, Colo., race and injuries forced him to miss the rest of the season.
