Reed reasoned his poor performance during 2010 season was to being a new dad, besides his close friend Andrew McFarlane’s death. He withdrew from the Supercross competition after a collision with other racers which broke his hand. In Newcastle, Australia he won the first round of Super X, then went back to the USA to test many different types of bikes, planning for a powerful competition in AMA Supercross in 2011, which he started by forming his new team, this time getting support from Honda. The final race was in Las Vegas which Chad won, but lost the championship by just four points. These performances still helped add to his net worth.

On his return, Chad tweaked his arm when crashing in 2013, after undergoing a second knee operation. After several other crashes and collisions which lead to Chad having more surgery, he changed his sponsor to Kawasaki in 2014. By riding a new bike, he moved to third place in the season opener in California, but in the final lap he had another heavy crash which left him with a shoulder injury. However, he didn’t give up, so tried to race again in Texas, but his shoulder was getting worse and he missed the rest of the season.
Chad Reed has now decided to concentrate on riding, and to disband his “22′ Team – also his rider’s number. However, his sponsors such as: Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, Fox Racing, Kawasaki and Pro Circuit are still supportive; he is still in demand, and his net worth has now reached an impressive level.
