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
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.
