Jeff Stanton, a three-time national Supercross champion and twice winner of the Superbowl of Motocross in the Coliseum, has announced his retirement at 26. "Racing just isn't as much fun as it used to be," Stanton said. "I know I'm not putting as much into it as I did a few years ago, and I decided it was time to get out because the spark just isn't there." Stanton, who lives in Sherwood, Mich.

Only one rider, Bob Hannah, has won consecutive Supercross championships since Mike Goodwin introduced stadium motocross to the world 19 years ago, but Jeff Stanton is on the verge of becoming the second. Stanton, 22, a Honda factory team rider from Sherwood, Mich., needs only to finish ninth or higher tonight in the season-ending Coors Super Challenge at the Coliseum to win his second title and the $50,000 bonus that goes with it.

In the end, nine victories--more than anyone had ever won in Supercross--were not enough for Damon Bradshaw. As two-time champion Jeff Stanton rode to victory in wire-to-wire fashion Saturday in the Coors Light Challenge at the Coliseum, Bradshaw found himself racing fourth or worse when he needed to finish third or better to take home his first Camel Supercross championship.

Supercross champion Jeff Stanton made an impressive move toward a third consecutive title when he rode away from a strong field to win the Coors Light Challenge Saturday night before 56,029 at Anaheim Stadium. Stanton, a Honda factory team rider from Sherwood, Mich., fought off a challenge from two-time Supercross champion Jeff Ward of Capistrano Beach for the first eight laps and then pulled away.

New Supercross champion Jeff Stanton closed the stadium motocross season Saturday night by winning the Coors Super Challenge of Motocross before 40,173 fans at the Coliseum. It took Stanton eight laps to catch George Holland, but once he got the lead, there was no stopping the Honda rider from Sherwood, Mich. Two Kawasaki riders, Jeff Ward of Mission Viejo and Ron Lechien of El Cajon, finished second and third, respectively, as Holland faded to fourth. In prerace ceremonies, Stanton received a check for $50,000 for winning the Supercross championship and also received the traditional No. 1 plates from 1988 champion Rick Johnson of El Cajon.

Before the 1989 motocross season started, Jeff Stanton was a little-known rider from Sherwood, Mich., and a house guest of Supercross champion Rick Johnson in the San Diego suburb of El Cajon, where he rode, trained and talked shop with his Honda riding partner for two months. Johnson, as expected, won the first five Supercross races of the season, passing Bob (Hurricane) Hannah and becoming the sport's all-time leader in victories with 28. Stanton, in the meantime, was learning what it takes to become a champion.

Rick Johnson, who leads the Camel Supercross Series in rider points, will be looking for his fourth straight motocross victory this season tonight in the Coors Extra Gold Super Challenge at Jack Murphy Stadium. Johnson's toughest competition will likely come from his Honda teammate and roommate, Jeff Stanton, who is currently second in points. Other contenders are Johnny O'Mara and Erik Kehoe, of Suzuki, and Yamaha's Micky Dymond and Damon Bradshaw.
