FARMINGDALE, N.J. (April 24, 2013) -The 2013 Monster Energy Supercross Series continued this weekend in Seattle, Washington, with round 15 of the 17-round series. Bel-Ray racer Davi Millsaps scored his 10th podium of the season with a solid third place in the rainy conditions.

Millsaps' podium finish allowed him to jump back into second place in the series standings, just one point ahead of series rival Ryan Dungey. Millsaps night began well with a victory in his heat race, and he backed it up with a solid twenty lap main event for a strong third place finish. “It was a great night though and it was my 10th podium of the year so I’m pretty stoked on that, said Millsaps following the main event. “Also my 7th heat race win. It’s just been an awesome season. I know I lost the points lead, then dropped to 3rd, and now I’m back to 2nd, but it doesn’t matter. It’s been a great run and the best of the best are all in this class right now and we’re all near the front.”

In the 450-class racing, Bel-Ray sponsored RCH Racing duo Josh Hill and Broc Tickle rode excellent races, overcoming adversity throughout the day. Hill qualified directly from his heat race into the main event, but he went down in the first turn at the beginning of the main event. He quickly remounted and charged through the field for an eventual 12th place finish. His teammate, Broc Tickle, was forced to qualify into the main event through the last-chance qualifier after a crash in his heat race. Despite a starting position on the outside of the gate, Tickle came through the field for his seventh top-ten finish of the season.

Bel-Ray-sponsored Rockstar Energy Racing fielded two racers in the 250 class this weekend. The West Coast Series started up following the nine-week break for the East Coast Series. Jason Anderson struggled with the difficult track conditions to score a 10th-place finish. With two rounds remaining, Anderson is currently in 5th place in the series standings. Despite being fast all day, a poor start in the main event meant that he was buried in the pack during the main event. Anderson’s teammate, Ryan Sipes, made his return to racing following a hand injury suffered earlier this season. He ran up front early in the main event, but the time off forced him to tighten up, though he held on for a credible 7th-place finish at the checkered flag.
