Kick (starting) It In Oakland

After taking the coveted Loretta Lynn’s AMA Horizon award back in 2011, it’s taken some time for Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson to make a name for himself in the pro ranks. Despite battling a cold on Saturday night, Anderson capped the night with his first podium finish. So, did he celebrate after the race? We asked, and he said, “No way! I was so sick that I passed out when I got back to the hotel [laughs]!”
Ryan Villopoto is now on a two-win win streak after Saturday night’s event, and now sits in third place, eight points behind the leader, Davi Millsaps.
After four rounds, Rockstar Energy Racing’s Davi Millsaps still holds onto the red plate, and the points lead, headed into Anaheim III.
After the massive first turn pileup, Muscle Milk Honda’s Justin Barcia was unable to complete the race, and headed back to his rig. All is well with Bam Bam, though, as he commented that he’s just nice and sore.
James Stewart showcased some new, all-black JS7 gear in the 450 main event to commemorate the Oakland Raiders. Unfortunately for Stewart, he was victim to the first turn pileup, which resulted with a broken throttle and a DNF.
