Joey Savatgy celebrated a second place finish at this past weekend’s Ironman MX Pro Motocross season finale, and also earned himself a third place finish in the championship standings. Savatgy started the day with a solid and consistent run in moto 1, swiftly edging his way up to a fifth place finish with teammate Chris Alldredge close behind him. In moto 2 Savatgy really opened things up with a banger start right into second place, on the rear tire of Nelson. Nelson went down a few laps in and Savatgy capitalized on the opportunity, although eventually conceded the lead to Plessigner after many dueling laps passed between the two riders. Joey Savatgy’s stamina and consistent efforts throughout the entire season were rewarded as he earned 3rd place overall in the 2015, 250cc MX National Championship standings.
Jason Anderson wrapped up his rookie 450 outdoor season with a solid third place overall at the Ironman MX, in Indiana. Anderson had an exciting first moto as he slotted into third place in the first few opening laps. He then hunted Pourcel for the remainder of the race and then made the pass for second place with only a few laps remaining. In moto 2 Anderson played it safe and steady for a sixth place finish which added up to a third place overall for the weekend. Jason Anderson finishes his rookie season in 6th place for the 2015, 450cc MX National Championship standings.
Joey Savatgy battled courageously and was victorious at this past weekend’s MX National at Unadilla. Savatgy opened each moto with strong starts out in the front of the pack, where he dueled closely with his competitors for most of the race. He finished with a 2-2 record which allowed him to claim the overall win for the weekend. This was Savatgy’s first win in his professional motocross career and the first victory of the year for the Monster Energy Kawasaki Pro Circuit team. The MX National outdoor series heads to Utah next on August 15th.
