JASON ANDERSON STRETCHES HIS AMA SUPERCROSS LEAD

The San Diego round of the AMA Supercross Championship will go down as one of the most chaotic of the 2018 season. 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.

After his first turn tip-over, Eli Tomac pulled off and recorded a DNF. Ken Roczen and Cooper Webb came together in spectacular style which has resulted in Roczen breaking a bone in his right hand. Rocen was lucky not to be seriously injured after his hand went between the swingarm and rear wheel
