Atherton Wins Motorcycle Race

Kevin Atherton led the entire race and held off Scott Parker to win the 20-lap American Motorcyclist Assn./Camel Pro series dirt-track event Saturday at the Los Angeles Fairgrounds at Pomona.

Parker's second-place finish gives him a four-point lead in the points race over Harley-Davidson teammate Chris Carr, with only next Saturday's race at Cal-Expo at Sacramento to ride.

The points winner will get a $100,000 bonus.

Carr, who had started the race with a one-point lead over Parker, overcame mechanical problems and finished fourth Saturday, behind Steve More.
