[motorcycle.com] - Jason Anderson Secures Second-Straight Monster Energy Supercross W


Once again, Monster Energy Supercross in San Diego provided intense racing with completely unpredictable results. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson captured his second-straight win and continues to build momentum while the rest of the 450SX pack saw mixed results that continued to jumble up the overall points standings. Marvin Musquin and Blake Baggett rounded out the podium. Barcia finished 8th but moved up to second in the points and Ken Roczen suffered a gnarly crash in a mix up with Cooper Webb.

Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing’s Justin Hill, last year’s 250SX West champion, finally won a race and seems to be catching his groove again. Accompanying Hill on the podium was Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo and GEICO Honda’s rookie, Chase Sexton.

Begin Press Release:

SAN DIEGO, CA – February 11, 2018 – Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM World Championship, hosted Round 6 of the 2018 season in front of 41,237 fans inside Petco Park.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson captured his second-straight 450SX Class win after leading 12 of the 24-Lap Main Event. A first-turn pileup included Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac, Monster Energy/Knich/Yamaha Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb and Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen while Roczen’s teammate Cole Seely grabbed the holeshot and lead 12 laps before Anderson’s come-from-behind win.

“I’ve just been putting myself in good positions, and I’ve just been fighting,” Anderson said on the podium. “I really had to keep my head down but, man, I’m excited to keep getting these wins and podiums, and I’m just grateful for the opportunities.”

Team Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin started fourth and battled his way into second. For the second consecutive week, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC/KTM/WPS Team’s Blake Baggett rounded out the podium after a seventh-place start.

In the 250SX Class Main Event, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Joey Savatgy earned his third holeshot of the year ahead of teammate Adam Cianciarulo and Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing’s Justin Hill. Cianciarulo lead for 11 laps before Hill found the lead for six laps to score his first Main Event win of 2018. GEICO Honda’s Chase Sexton picked up his second career podium behind Cianciarulo in second.

“It was tough, I’m not gonna lie,” Hill said on the podium. “But this track lends itself to me because it was technical … I’m beyond psyched, and to put the bike on the top step and kind of shut up all the haters in a way, I feel really good about it, and I feel back to my true form.”
