The Monster Energy Supercross series picked up in our hometown, San Diego, for round two and the non-stop action kept us on the edge of our seats. Cooper Webb exerted his dominance again with a confident win in the 250SX class.
Cooper Webb had a little bit of excitement in his heat race, first getting caught up at the start, and then having a tangle with another rider as he charged through the pack. He started the race in 12th and moved quickly to fourth place for an easy transfer to the main event. In the main, Webb started off in seventh position and methodically worked his way up to third by lap 5. Certainly not content with a podium finish, Webb continued to charge forward and on lap 11 claimed the top spot from race leader Zach Osborne. Webb lead comfortably for the remainder of the race and also ran the fastest lap of the main event, a 49.360.
Alex Martin had a rough night, crashing in heat 1 and being forced to race the LCQ to qualify for the main. Martin battled through the LCQ where he finished third and transferred to the main event. Martin had a mid-pack start in the main, and struggled to break free during the race where he finished 11th.
Mitchell Harrison had a rough crash in the main event and finished the night in 22nd.
Jason Anderson finished in third at the checkers, but unfortunately an after-race penalty relegated him to a fifth finish overall for the night. Anderson started the night with an exciting battle against Justin Barcia in heat 2, edging out his competition for the final transfer spot for the race. In the main event, Anderson was mired in a slow start, but battled his way to fourth position by lap 8. Late in the race he staged his charge and fought Cole Seely turn-for -turn before finally overtaking his competitor for third place. Following the race, Anderson was penalized two positions for jumping a section that had flashing warning lights and an ambulance flag in use.
Marvin Musquin continues to learn the ropes in his rookie 450 season. He found himself in semi 2 where he finished second to move on to the main. In the main event Musquin had a mid-pack start and picked his way to finish the race in 9th place, his first top ten result in the 450 class.
