It was an all-out battle at San Diego SX 2 as Cooper Webb fought tooth and nail to hang on to the red plate but was ultimately mired by setbacks.
Cooper Webb came in to the evening tied in points with rival Joey Savatgy. Webb won his heat race without any troubles and moved onto the main event. In the main event Webb claimed fifth position in the opening lap and quickly started to work his way to the front. By lap six he was hunting down the race leader Savatgy when a small mishap put him on the ground. Webb lost two positions as he remounted for the race and had to work hard again to regain lost ground. After several attempts Webb finally made his move stick and on lap 13 claimed second place from Craig. There was not enough time left in the race to chase down Savatgy however and Webb had to settle with second place for the night.
Mitchell Harrison was having a good evening, with a solid transfer from heat race 2 and looking confident for the main event. In the first lap of the main event however Harrison clipped someone’s rear tire and went down hard. He remounted and fought his way to a 14th place finish for the night.
It was a tough night for Alex Martin. Although he had an easy transfer from his heat race in the start of the main event a big pile up in turn one caused Martin to crash. Starting from way back in the pack Martin eventually worked his way to a 15th place finish.
Jason Anderson put on a show all night with daring moves and close passes that had the crowd on their feet. The sparks flew in Anderson’s heat race as he battled with Friese several laps as the two riders made close passes, bumped, and Anderson eventually edged him out to take over for a second place finish in the race. In the main event Anderson had a slow start, starting from 8th place in lap 1. Anderson had an exciting few laps as he pushed past Canard and Tomac to claim fourth place for the night.
Marvin Musquin started his night with a bang as he claimed the holeshot in heat race 1 and claimed third in the race. Musquin’s start in the main event was a bit trickier however, as the frenchman was literally unsaddled from the bike in the mayhem but miraculously kept upright and remounted with only minor damage. That opening lap bobble pushed Musquin back to sixth place, and he ultimately finished 7th in the main event.
