FARMINGDALE, N.J. (February 2, 2016) – Bel-Ray sponsored rider, Ken
Roczen of RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing secured
second place during the 450SX main event at the fourth round of AMA
Supercross in Oakland, Calif., January 30.
Earning his second podium finish with just four races into the
season, Roczen showed one of his strongest performances in Oakland.
Roczen began the race as the fastest rider in the day’s first practice,
and second-quickest in the second, which set him up well for the night
show. His third place in the heat race moved him into the main event.
Roczen received a great jump out of the gate, which helped him work his
way up to third position by the first lap. By lap five he managed to
secure the runner-up position and held it all the way to the finish
“We’re making steps in the right direction” commented Roczen. “I’ve
been working really hard on my starts. We made an adjustment to the
clutch, which seemed to work a lot better for me on the starts. I didn’t
get the holeshot but I was still somewhere up front and it felt really
good not to get blasted (by dirt) the whole time.”
Fellow Bel-Ray sponsored rider Jason Anderson of Rockstar Energy
Husqvarna Factory Racing also placed in the top five, earning fourth
place in the 450SX main event to solidify his current position as second
in overall points for the season.
