AMA Supercross - Round 8 - Orlando, FL
In the 450 class, Marvin Musquin claimed his second podium of the season coming in 2nd place.
Jason Anderson had to come from a 13th place start to 5th by the checker flag.
Musquin: “It feels really good to be running up front. The whoops started to be very tough so I was trying to be careful but at the same time I wanted to gain time on Cooper. I felt like I was a little bit quicker at one point but I didn’t want the track to bite me and go down. At least I had a great feeling out there. I want to thank the team for their hard work, I felt better today.”
“My night was a lot better,” Anderson said. “I had a good practice and ended up P1, had a good battle in the heat race and got first in that. In the Main Event, I kind of had a bad start and worked my way up to fifth. I’m getting better and feeling better, so hopefully we’ll have an even better weekend in Daytona.”
The 250 West kicked off tonight and Husqvarna Team rider Jalek Swoll started the season off strong with 4th place in the main event.
Team-mate Stilez Robertson had a hard night going down in the 250 main finishing 18th for the night.
“It was a pretty decent night,” Swoll said. “The heat race was a little hectic and I got shuffled back a bit and finished sixth. That didn’t set me up for a very good gate pick in the Main Event but I made the best of it. I felt like toward the end of the moto I started coming around but by that point it was kind of too late. I’m a little disappointed but we’ll be back next weekend.”
