Reed ignites AMA battle, Georgia next.

Meanwhile, veteran Mike LaRocco moved back into third in the standings over Amsoil Chaparral Honda team-mate Kevin Windham after taking third last weekend. LaRocco is a former Atlanta Supercross winner.

Georgia will also see the AMA 125 East Supercross Series resume with round two. Georgia's own Davi Millsaps leads the standings after winning the 125 East opener in Indianapolis on his factory Suzuki a few weeks ago.

Millsaps turned 17 last week and is one of the leading up-and-coming riders in the series, but if he is to hang on to his series lead he will have to hold off former AMA Motocross Champion Grant Langston, who comes into Atlanta ranked second, and Josh Hansen, a second generation pro racer who is third in the series.

Matt Walker is another home state hero in the 125 class and comes into Atlanta ranked fifth.
