One of the most intense battles of the season went down this past weekend at A2, when Cooper Webb and Christian Craig fought lap for lap to gain the top 250SX podium spot.
Cooper Webb scored a threepeat win at the A2 round and remains undefeated. It was no walk in the park however, as rival Christian Craig challenged the number 1 plate throughout the entire evening. It started in heat race one, where Webb scored the holeshot, but was passed by Craig on lap one. Unable to return the favor, Webb settled for a second place finish in the heat. In the main event Webb had some work cut out for him as he started in sixth position, but quickly cut through the field to third place by lap five. Webb pushed by Savatgy for second and began his assault on race leader Craig. The crowd was on their feet as Webb and Craig swapped the lead for multiple laps with close, but clean passes. In the late laps of the race, Webb finally put some distance between himself and Craig and claimed the checkered with ease.
Alex Martin held on for an early transfer spot in heat race two, but had a rough time in the main and finished 19th.
Jason Anderson fell one spot short of the transfer from his heat, but won his semi race for an easy transfer. Anderson had a slow start in the main and was mired in mid-pack battles most of the race, but charged forward for a fifth place finish.
Marvin Musquin also found himself in semi one and transferred from the two spot. In the main event Musquin had a crash early on and remounted to finish ninth.
