This is the 8th and final round of the 2009 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Lites East Championship from Jacksonville Municipal Stadium in Jacksonville, FL.
Returning Supercross Lites East contenders like Christophe Pourcel, Brett Metcalfe, Lites Sophomores Austin Stroupe and Nico Izzi, Wil Hahn, Lites rookie Blake Wharton, 2003 champ Branden Jesseman, Martin Davalos and others battle it out for the 2009 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Lites East Championship. This is Christophe Pourcel’s first full season in the U.S. after a very painful spinal injury that almost cost him his career (and mobility) in 2008. Privateer Daniel Blair #125 earns a Factory ride with the GEICO Honda team after Brett Metcalfe went down with an injury after finishing 2nd in the opener at Houston. This is the first Supercross race held in Jacksonville. Nico Izzi bails off his Suzuki RMZ-250 after doubling a triple jump, which results in a broken ankle and skipping the Motocross season.
