Jason Anderson Retains Points Lead with Podium Finish

FARMINGDALE, N.J. (February 10, 2014)- The 2014 Monster Energy Supercross Series made its last stop in California on Saturday night. The San Diego Supercross, held at Qualcomm Stadium, marked the first-ever Military Appreciation Night for the series, with special opening ceremonies and one-off gear and graphics showing military support. Bel-Ray racer Jason Anderson continued to be the top Bel-Ray racer at the event, with a second place in the 250 class. This result gave him sole possession of the series points lead.
Anderson was once again the fastest rider in timed qualifying and set himself up for a positive heat race and evening of racing. This all ended abruptly as Anderson came in contact with another rider and was on the ground just feet from the starting gate. But Anderson regrouped. He picked himself up off the ground, dusted himself off and set out to gain a qualifying position. He was able to finish 6th place and qualify for the main event. A top 5 start lead put Anderson in a good position for the 15-lap main event. He was second by the second lap and into second place by the mid-way point; but the leader was too far out of reach, and Anderson would earn a second place for his efforts. He now sits on top of the points standings as the sole leader.
In 450 class racing action, Bel-Ray-backed RCH Suzuki racer Broc Tickle scored the top Bel-Ray results. Tickle’s 8th place finish matches his season-best results. A holeshot in the main event put Bel-Ray racer Andrew Short at the front of the field. Aggressive passes by other riders slowed Short down a bit, but he persevered and scored another top-10 finish for the 6th time this season. Following Short with an 11th place finish was Bel-Ray RCH racer Josh Hill. After suffering a broken collarbone in Oakland on January 25th, many assumed Hill would be off the bike for an extended period of time. But Hill showed the industry that they should never underestimate him and lined up for the main event this weekend less than two weeks after surgery. Even a crash during afternoon practice, where he landed on his damaged collarbone, couldn’t stop the determined Hill. He was rewarded for his perseverance with an 11th place finish.  Bel-Ray-supported Rockstar Energy KTM racer Ivan Tedesco finished 13th, and BTO Sports-KTM-WPS racer Matt Goerke finished 15th.
