Chad Reed’s Career Supercross Stats Are Out of this World

Chad Reed wrapped up (we think? Maybe?) his legendary career on Sunday in Salt Lake City with a tenth place finish—his best of the season. The two-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion has hinted that he may return in 2021 in some compacity, but we’ll have to wait and see. Either way, Reed, 38, leaves (we think? Maybe?) the sport as one of the greatest of all time.

Just look at these stats! My goodness. (Credit to sxresearchdept for putting this together. Give him a follow on Instagram.)
