Jason Anderson came back with a vengeance after his Thunder Valley DNF, qualifying with the fastest time at High Point and claiming second overall for the day. Marvin Musquin also put a good foot forward and rounded out the podium in third.
Jason Anderson kicked off his weekend at High Point with authority, starting off with the quickest lap times in practice and then qualifying first out of the pack. He launched off the gate in Moto 1 and worked his way to third place by the end of lap 1, and quickly passed for second position by lap 2. A small tip over in the race cost him a few positions, but Anderson rallied and fought his way back to a third by the end of the race. In Moto 2 Anderson started off in the top ten and diligently worked his way back to another third place finish, going 3-3 for the day resulting in a second place overall.
Marvin Musquin also had a great start, jumping off the gate to fourth place and eventually picking off Anderson and Tomac to run in second. Musquin stalked race leader Roczen, but never quite reeled him in, settling for second place in Moto 1. In Moto 2, Musquin got off to another top-five start as he rounded the opening lap in 4th place once again. Tomac made a pass on Musquin to drop him back to 5th place momentarily but the Frenchman upped the pace on lap six to make a pass on Justin Barcia to reclaim the 4th place position.
