2005 AMA Lockhart Phillips Formula Xtreme Championship
Round 9: Road Atlanta, Braselton, GA
September 3, 2005
Call him The Man. And now, for the eighth time in his storied career, call him The Champ: Miguel DuHamel, 2005 AMA Formula Xtreme Champion, to be precise.
And boy what a finish it was, with the entire season נand the FX crown נ riding on todayӳ final round at Road Atlanta as Team Hondaӳ Jake Zemke and DuHamel rolled into Braselton, GA, separated by just five points. More than just the checkered flag was on the line, as the ultimate title decision would also be determined by which racer could come away with the most laps led.
Simply put, Hollywood couldnӴ have dreamt up a better, more dramatic storyline. The fact that the two stars were both Red Riders merely made this blockbuster all the more watchable.
DuHamel entered the race trailing Zemke and needing not only the win but also the point that comes with most laps led to successfully defend his FX crown. Needless to say, both the famously relentless DuHamel and Zemke, whoӤ be going for his first career AMA title, were going to leave everything out on the track. And if their almost two straight seasons of lead-swapping, bar-banging dogfights were any indication, this final 15-lap showdown promised to be epic.

Thereӳ something about making the most of second chances. Just ask SoBe/Samsung Mobile/Hondaӳ Josh Grant, who capitalized on a red flag and the restart, then went on to grab the lead and secure the win at round two of the AmpӤ Mobile SX Lites Eastern Regional Series in Atlanta. Team Hondaӳ Davi Millsaps, the previous weekendӳ round one victor, took second to stay atop the championship standings and pad his points lead to nine.
Grant grabbed the holeshot in the Lites main and held the lead for five laps until Millsaps got by. Grant was able to keep the Red Rider close, however, and when Davi spun in a corner, that was all Josh needed to retake the lead. From there he and his #24 Honda CRF250R cruised to take the checkers by more than 12 seconds. Millsaps, meantime, had to battle his way back from fourth after his bobble, and the factory Honda ace managed to climb back to capture second. In the remaining top 10 action, GPS Racing/Hondaӳ Michael Blose finished sixth, and Motosport/MDK/Hondaӳ Robert Kiniry eighth.
Team Hondaӳ Ernesto Fonseca was the highest-finishing Honda rider in the premier Supercross main, crossing the line in fifth. The Fonz was then followed home by a quartet of Honda CRF450R-mounted pilots, starting with Nick Wey in seventh, Mike LaRocco eighth, Ryan Clark ninth and Travis Preston 10th

Confederate Motorcycles, Inc. was formed on April 2, 1991
with the goal to create handcrafted street motorcycles of unsurpassed structure and quality, utilizing American industrial and mechanical design in its purest and most organic form. Headquartered in Abita Springs, Louisiana, Confederate has become the premier manufacturer of high-end, high-performance, American motorcycles for the connoisseur who will have only the best and the fastest.
The Formative Years
The first few years were invested in due diligence researching the top engineering and fabrication talent to assist our design team in creating the new line of Confederate machines. The company moved to the
San Francisco Bay area to refine the chassis and power train mounting system that would become the foundation for the new line of Confederate machines. From a clean sheet of paper, the new motorcycle was designed over an eighteen-month period.
Birth of a New Machine
During March of 1994, operations were relocated to a 6,000 square foot prototype shop in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. On November 11, 1994, Veteran's Day, our first motorcycle was fired up. The ride proved everything we had hoped for. It possessed world class chassis dynamics. But there was something more. Something hard to define, yet easily felt. The bike had All-American character.
Refining The Dream
In the summer and fall of 1996, as a small batch craft oriented builder, tooling for 500 machines was committed and manufactured. Beginning production in model year 1997 with but 15 machines, sales grew at an annualized 75% rate. Each of our 1st generation machines has been sold.
Theres No Place Like Home
On July 4, 1998, Confederate Motorcycles, Inc. moved into its own climate-controlled 38,000 square foot manufacturing facility, located in a rural community 30 miles north of New Orleans. The Company has in place all equipment, including mills, lathes, frame jigs, part jigs, welders, tool and dye equipment, a power bender and assembly stations.
Perfecting The Process
For our second generation Confederate Hellcatά all new proprietary tooling has been manufactured to assure the highest handmade quality possible.
On January 12, 1999, H. Matthew Chambers was issued US patent number 5,857,538 covering 20 claims. The Companys products incorporate this patented technology to create traditional high-end American motorcycles of unsurpassed performance, styling and quality. Aside from uniquely classic aesthetic qualities, what sets our motorcycles apart from the competition is absolute power --train and chassis stiffness, huge street power, accurate and precise steering and handling, powerful braking, and world-class ride control.
