Jason Anderson second at Glendale Supercross | News
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing's Jason Anderson earned his first 450 Main Event podium of the season on Saturday at the Glendale Supercross.
Jason Anderson was looking to redeem himself after finishing outside the top-10 at last week’s Anaheim season opener. He was mid-pack at the start of his 450 heat race and came out of the first lap in eighth. He gained two spots and finished sixth to transfer to the 450 Main Event.
He was top-five at the start of the Main and quickly navigated into the top-three before charging into the second-place spot. He was riding strong but was forced to restart the race in a staggered start after the red flag came out due to an injured rider on the track. He came back with a vengeance after the restart and made an impressive charge for the lead. He was patient and observed the leader for a few laps before making a quick inside corner pass to take over the lead. He maintained control but went back to second after getting passed with one minute remaining in the race. He held strong to finish second. He is currently seventh in 450 rider point standings.
“This was a good weekend,” said Anderson. “I was able to ride the Main better than last week. I had a section that I didn’t think I was great in, so I didn’t want to put myself in a position to go down and lose points. I took the second and I’ll go from there.”
