The List: Numbers Behind the SeasonThursday, February 2, 2012 | 11:35 AM
6: Red plates this year in SX Lites and SX Classes. Six different riders have held points leads in either the SX of Lites class after just four races. With the East Lites tour getting underway in two weeks, we could be looking at a lot of overtime work for graphics companies.
2: Supercross class points lead ties (not counting round one, where every single rider was tied with zero).
This marks the second time in this past year that Reed has shared the red plate with Dungey.

0: Points difference between the top two riders (Reed & Dungey) of the SX class going into A2.
2: Points lead deficit for Ryan Villopoto in a deep field of SX class talent.
15: Points lead for Eli Tomac in a comparably deep field of Lites West talent.
53.915: Eli Tomac's fastest lap time in L.A., faster than any other rider from both classes.
Is this a phase of an integral plot? Perhaps not, but it's good to speculate.

338: It's not J-Law, it's Z-Osb!
992: AMA number for Brazil’s Jean Carlos Ramos, the highest number rider to qualify for a main event this year.
10-10-7-10: Ultra consistent finishes for #100, Josh Hansen. Most expect Hanny to show flashes of speed but also some inconsistency—instead, he’s been the rock for team Dodge/H&H. Just about as consistent is the rider without a #3 for Jeff Ward Racing, Kyle Chisholm, who has 16-12-12-12 finishes.
200: All-time SX main event wins for Honda after Chad Reed’s L.A. SX triumph.
