Jason Anderson secured his second win of the Supercross Season at Round 6 in Anaheim. The latest round over the weekend was the series third stop in Anaheim.
When the gate dropped, Anderson had the holeshot. A very hungry Eli Tomac was directly behind Anderson. Tomac jumped to the lead, but Anderson wasn’t having any of it and regained the lead right back. A mistake in the whoops cost Tomac some time and allowed Anderson some breathing room. Anderson won the main event and Tomac settled in for second.
Anaheim 3 was the final event for a while for the Western Regional 250 class. The class will take a much-needed break, allowing the Eastern Regional riders get their first gate starts next week. When the gate dropped, three riders were battling in the first corner. Christian Craig emerged in the lead with Hunter Lawrence and Vince Friese following behind. The battle between Craig and Lawrence continued. Just six minutes into the moto, Lawrence went down in the whoops section. Craig ran away with the lead. Michael Mosiman had made it second but also went down in the whoops. Mosiman remounted his bike but not before Friese made a pass for second. Mosiman held on for third.
Eli Tomac leads the 450 class standings and Christian Craig has a 28-point lead in the Western Regional 250 class. Craig can sleep easy for the next five weeks while his class takes a break. The series heads east to Minneapolis, Minnesota.
