2018 Monster Energy Supercross Race Recap - San Diego

The year of “El Hombre”  continues as Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson raced to another main event win in San Diego Saturday night.

After a sub par performance to his standards in the qualifiers and opening main event heats, Anderson showed why he is the points leader after he chased down Marvin Musquin and passed him for the lead. For Anderson this is his second straight main event win after beating Ken Roczen on the last lap in Oakland in the previous race.

“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. Savatgy crashed allowing Cianciarulo to pass and 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.”
