Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson TURNED in aggressive-yet-controlled laps all night, Anderson nabbed a fourth-place finish in his heat race. In the main, Anderson got a mid-pack start but put his head down and picked his way through the field to eventually card a sixth-place result.
“Seattle was pretty good, though I had some trouble with my starts,” said Anderson. “But my speed was good and sixth isn’t a bad way to end the night, considering how my start was. The Rockstar Energy Racing bike’s working great and I’ve been to Salt Lake City before and I like racing there. So, hopefully I’ll be able to rip some good starts and get up on the podium there.”
The Seattle race was a rough one for Rockstar Energy Racing teammate Martin Davalos. The evening started out well, with Davalos turning in a spirited ride in his heat race and taking second. Then, in the main event, he was running sixth when he stalled his bike and wound up finishing 14th.
“It was a tough night,” said Davalos. “I feel like I was riding pretty smooth, but then I stalled my bike with four laps to go, sitting in an easy sixth. I gave it away. It’s been a tough year… and I’m disappointed for the team because they’ve worked so hard on the bike and everything. But I still have two races left, so I need to keep putting my head down and do my best.”
