For gate drop five of the 2018 Supercross season, Jason Anderson regained his winning ways as he battled Ken Roczen to take the win in a wild, no-holds barred contest in the Bay. Besides winning, Jason increased his overall points lead and the red plate will travel with him to San Diego next weekend.

Jason had a scary moment early in the day as he went down in the first practice. “At the beginning of the day—the first practice—I endo’d so hard… all day my back was a little sore and honestly it kind of scared me,” Jason explained, post-race. “I was very hesitant all day, and even in that heat race I was like a 5th place guy.”

Anderson managed to qualify in his heat race and take the win despite a mediocre hole shot where he found himself in 6th. But in the last lap, there were two lead changes as Jason battled his points trailer, Ken Roczen. “That battle at the end of the race was crazy,” Jason said. “We were both making mistakes and the track was hard to [hit] your marks… it was insane, but it felt great.”

Jason and his 15 point lead head south for the sixth stop of the season at Petco Park next weekend. Dragon’s 250 rider Mitchell Harrison finished 9th, an improvement over his first few races this year. He’ll have his work cut out for him next week as it’s the first East-West shootout so the field will be stacked with more solid racers including 250 East champion Zach Osborne and fellow Dragon rider Michael Mosiman.

Jason Anderson grabs 3rd at Anaheim 2 Supercross

Keeping the momentum alive from the first two rounds, Dragon’s Jason Anderson finished 3rd overall at Anaheim 2 Supercross, despite the new Triple Crown format. Anderson came into the weekend with the red plate, and exits SoCal with the red plate still in his possession.

This marks the third straight podium for Jason who is focused and hungry while his main competition of Eli Tomac, Marvin Musquin, Ken Roczen, and Justin Barcia have had uneven starts. He leaves Anaheim with 70 points towards the Championship, and sits in 1st place.

This was the first of three races that will feature the new Triple Crown format. Rather than a Heat Race and a 20-minute main event, the TC format has timed qualifying followed by three shorter main event races, with the overall podium determined by a combination of your results.

“The first race was tough because it was so short,” said Jason of the Triple Crown format. “IT’s all about the start but there’s a lot of racing and it’s kind of crazy and a curveball for us—and for me.”

Next on the docket will be in Arizona for round 4, about 1/4 of the way through the Supercross season. Rockstar-Husqvarna’s Mitchell Harrison raced despite taking a big crash in practice earlier. He finished 13th overall.

Jason Anderson grabs 2nd at Monster Cup Supercross

It’s been a while since Jason Anderson has raced—he had season ending surgery in August—but he came back and made sure everyone knew he was back. The big story was Marvin Musquin winning the Monster Million, but it was great seeing Jason back so quickly, showing he’s still one of the best in the 450 class. “Last night was fun. Time to look ahead,” Jason succinctly put on Twitter about the night.

More to come as videos come out, but congrats to Jason and the Dragon partnered Rockstar Husky racing machine.
