AMA Supercross Round 2 - Houston, TX.
Just three days after an exciting season opener in Houston Marvin Musquin finished 6th over all and Jason Anderson finished 8th overall in the 450 main event.
Musquin: “I got a great start in the Main Event, which was once again the key. I was right there and felt like I was going to have a good race but unfortunately, I crashed in the sand, it was really tricky. I got up and lost so many positions but I tried to fight back and make up the most points possible but there’s not much to say about sixth place. It’s tough but you have to stay on two wheels and stay up front.”
“Practice probably didn’t look so good on paper but it went better and my heat race went better than last week, so those are definitely positives,” Anderson said. “In the Main Event, I kind of rode into eighth place and that’s what I ended up with tonight. It’s not the way we wanted to start but hopefully we’ll keep progressing and we’ll just keep going.”
In the 250 class RJ Hampshire while running 2nd, he went high in a corner and another rider came into contact with him, sending both riders to the ground. He dropping back to 20th, worked hard to charge his way back through the field, ultimately finishing 17th.
“It was another rough night, I started off with a pretty big practice crash and then did what I could to salvage the heat,” Hampshire said. “I got a good start in the main, the bike is awesome out of the gate, it was just an unfortunate situation with Forkner because I had the speed and was just clicking off my laps. I’ll give it a couple of days to recover and knock off a win here soon.”
