Jason Anderson has shown that he has the speed to run at the front of the pack, but mistakes and falls have kept him from staying in the thick of the action. His results, a seventeenth in the main event, do not do his speed justice, as the Rockstar Suzuki rider clocked the fourth fastest lap of the Lites class.
After spending the winter in the US, GP racer Max Anstie is due back in Europe to begin testing for the 2012 MX2 championship. If things go smoothly, the Brit may come back to the US for the final West Coast races, much like Ken Roczen did in 2011.
When word leaked out that the Geico Powersports Honda team had left Fox late last year, many expected the team to run only the black and yellow style seen just before the new year. The green and white Alias gear, which Josh Grant ran at Anaheim One, is the fourth new design seen on the team this year.
Kevin Windham's round six results, a fourteenth, do not do his night justice. Windham was fourth fastest in practice and fifth fastest in the main event before a fall knocked him to the back of the field. His second opening ceremonies transfer was one of the gnarlier ones we have seen and was complete with pyrotechnics. Youtube it for proof.
After we talked to Billy Laninovich during track walk, we were even more impressed with his results this season. After taking a two year break, which involved a stint at a construction company, Laninovich came back with only a few weeks of testing under his belt. He will spend the next eight rounds racing the 450 class on the East Coast before dropping back down to finish the West Coast series.
Nick Paluzzi's season may have hit a turning point. After nabbing the final gate via the LCQ, the Riverside, CA, rode to a tenth place finish, his top result of the year.
San Diego is the "hometown" race for many companies, ours included. To celebrate the occasion, Kyle Krause and the folks at SPY Optics had "K-Dub" rally towels printed and distributed to the fans.
Thanks to their support from DVS Shoes, the mechanics on the Geico Powersports Honda team are able to run some custom lace ups.
