PHOENIX (AP) -- Chad Reed was ready to put up the kick stand on his dirt bike for good, coming off a disappointing, injury-filled season and unable to secure the kind of sponsorship money he expected.

The retirement thoughts didn't last long, though.

Realizing his passion for motocross was still strong, Reed decided to create his own racing team to continue a career that's piled up more wins than all but two riders.

A two-time motocross and Supercross champion, Reed won his first moto for TwoTwo Motorsports in Phoenix last weekend and is looking to add a main event win Saturday in Supercross' first-ever trip to Dodger Stadium.
