THOR RIDERS MUSQUIN AND MARTIN PODIUM IN TORONTO

The East Coast Supercross Championship headed north of the border to Canada this past weekend. Both Musquin and Martin claimed second place finishes at the Toronto round.

TOR-JMARTIN

250 CLASS

Jeremy Martin started his night right with an easy second place in heat race 1, but soon found trouble in the 250 main event. A chain reaction pile up heading into turn 1 collected nearly half the field, including Jeremy Martin. Martin scrambled to remount and rejoined the race well behind the field. For the remainder of the race, Martin would heroically battle his way to a second place at the checkered flag. His outstanding performance of the evening also earned him the red plate and points lead going into the next round.

TOR-PLESSINGER

Aaron Plessinger had a rough night, on the dash for the hole shot in heat race two, his front wheel got clipped and he went down hard. Plessinger headed to the LCQ and won handily. The massive pile up in the main event, also collected Plessinger, sending him to the back of the field to work his way through.  Plessinger ended up finishing 12th for the night.

TRO-MUSQUIN

450 CLASS

Marvin Musquin charged off the gate in heat race two and finished third, for an easy transfer to the main event. In the 450 main event Musquin avoided some first lap drama and began plotting moves from his fifth place position. He diligently tailed Dungey for most of the race, and with six laps to go Dungey had a bobble and Musquin shot ahead to claim second place. Musquin raced hard and consistent to the finish, holding off Dungey to finish second for the evening.

TOR-ANDERSON

Jason Anderson had a roller coaster of a night. Anderson had some tense racing and tight passes in his heat race, transferring to the main. He then pulled a top-10 start before getting caught up in a big pileup in the first rhythm section. Jason remounted in the back of the pack and immediately started putting in a charge. He advanced from 16th to 10th by the halfway mark and eventually finished the race in ninth.
