Airoh Race Report – AMA Championship Arlington 2017

Marvin Musquin and Jason Anderson on the podium conquer the first and third place at Arlington Supercross!

The Airoh team had a great day at the Arlington Supercross on Saturday, held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas - the sixth round of the AMA Supercross Series. Our riders Marvin Musquin and Jason Anderson had amazing rides and finished first and third, respectively, in the 450 class.
 

The 450SX Main Event was red flagged shortly after the gate drop due to a downed rider on the track. Upon the restart, Musquin shot out of the gate to capture the early lead.Musquin maintained his focus out front as he rode a near perfect Main Event, leading all 20 laps en route to his first-career 450SX victory.

Musquin: “I was super calm, trying to stay relaxed and not put any pressure on myself. I had a great start and worked on pacing myself and I was just doing my laps out there and it happened. The biggest thing was that I didn’t make any big mistakes and I stayed on my bike. Today I was more relaxed and I’m really happy.”

Jason Anderson was fifth at the start of his heat and was holding strong until he collided with a crashing Malcolm Stewart causing his bike to fly off the track. This took him out of the race and forced him to line up for the 450 semi. He started eighth in the semi and put his focus on chasing down riders to put him in a transfer position. He was all over Jimmy Albertson in the fourth lap before making the pass stick and nabbing the final transfer spot. He then set his sights on Vince Friese and made a close pass high on the berm for fourth where he finished. Anderson had a decent start in the 450 main before the red flag came out, forcing a restart. He got a mid-pack start and was in 7th by the end of the first lap. He made the pass for sixth and continued to charge. He made his way into podium territory after multiple riders had issues and held his ground to the finish, eventually finishing third. He is currently fifth overall in 450 rider point standings.

Anderson:“I qualified well all day,” said Anderson. “It was a good day. I felt good and it was definitely a step in the right direction. I feel like I need to be on the podium every week. I had a rough few weeks, but I’m 100% healthy now with my arm. I just put in some good laps in the main. I had an incident in the heat race when I got hit by another bike and my bike ended up doing a 1080 - so I had to take it back to get repaired. I was able to come back and make it in the semi. Then I got a decent start in the main, put head down and moved forward and got into third. I was all by myself out there, and just rode it home for a podium. I’m really looking for that win - I know I can win - and that’s the goal for next week."

Musquin and Anderson will now make their way to the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota for the seventh round of the series, to be held next Saturday, February 18.
