It has been forty-seven races without a win for 2018 champion Jason Anderson. That is until Saturday night in Oakland. Anderson topped the podium aboard his Monster Energy Kawasaki. Adam Cianciarulo had the holeshot and early lead. Anderson moved past his teammate to take over without a challenge. Behind Anderson, Aaron Plessinger and Justin Barcia were battling for the second and third spots as Cianciarulo continued to drop back in the field. Also deeper in the field, Ken Roczen made a mistake and crashed into a berm in the whoops section. Roczen got back up but was only able to secure a thirteenth-place finish.
In the 250 Regional West class, Christian Craig scored his second consecutive win of the season. Jo Shimoda had the holeshot but Craig was able to make his move to the lead when Shimoda stalled the bike. A couple of minutes later, Shimoda crashed in the whoops. Hunter Lawrence and Seth Hammaker rounded out the final two spots on the podium.
Supercross heads to San Diego for Round 3.
