David Millsaps of Murrieta passed Trey Canard on the final lap to win the season opener of the supercross series Saturday night at Angel Stadium.
It was Millsaps' first victory in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series since the Suzuki rider won in San Diego in 2010. Supercross is the stadium version of off-road motorcycle racing, or motocross.
Canard finished second, a notable achievement after the Oklahoman suffered a back fracture nearly a year ago in the race at Dodger Stadium that prematurely ended his season.
Former champions Ryan Dungey and Chad Reed finished third and fourth, respectively, in front of a sold-out crowd of 45,050. Two-time champion James Stewart was eighth.
