Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson led the proverbial charge. Completely recovered from the bug that plagued him last week, Anderson picked up his best moto finish of the season in the first race with a fifth-place finish. In the second moto, he struggled a bit but still finished 12th. When the smoke cleared, Anderson finished the day in eighth overall.
“This weekend was decent,” said Anderson. “I had a good first moto. Then I crashed on the start of the second moto and came back to 12th. I have some stuff to work on and my plan is to come in to Steel City feeling good.”
Rockstar Energy Racing teammate Martin Davalos also recovered from his illness last week and finished right behind Anderson in the 250 class overall results. Davalos was the epitome of consistency in both motos, picking up 13th- and seventh-place results to capture ninth overall for the day.
“In the first moto, I didn’t get the greatest start,” said Davalos. “I rode tight and did OK, I got 13th. In the second moto, I got a way better start and I was able to ride my own race, my own pace. I was pretty happy with my second moto and I finally felt like I was riding like myself again. So we’ll take a short break and come back ready for Steel City.”
Rockstar Energy Racing’s Blake Wharton started the day strong in the 250 class by finishing his first moto in a very respectable fourth place. In the second moto, Wharton suffered a crash and didn’t finish. All the same, he still finished a solid 11th overall.
Rockstar Energy Racing’s Hunter Hewitt remains out due to illness, but hopes to be racing before the end of the season. And Rockstar’s Jessica Patterson is on hiatus until the WMX class resumes at the final round of AMA Pro Motocross at the Lake Elsinore National in September.
