San Diego, California will be the site of the final Golden State appearance of the 2012 Monster Energy Supercross Series. On Saturday night, February 11th, the stars of Supercross will compete for the top step of the podium.
Coming into San Diego after another podium finish is TwoTwo Motorsports/Bel-Ray Racing’s Chad Reed. Second in the points standings, just three points away from the leader, Reed has confidence on his side this weekend. His six previous main event wins in San Diego are the most by any competitor. Look for #22 to be leading the pack when the gate drops this weekend.
The Dodge/Hart & Huntington/Sycuan Casino/Bel-Ray Racing team is hoping to rebound from last weekend’s disappointing finishes in Anaheim. Josh Hansen’s DNF on Saturday night ended his string of Top 10 finishes, but Hansen intends to re-start his streak again this week. Despite a strong showing in his heat race, Kyle Partridge struggled in the main event and finished 16th. Both riders are currently in the top 20 in the series’ points standings coming into this weekend’s event.
Team Rockstar Energy Racing Suzuki’s Martin Davalos and Jason Anderson both come to San Diego with something to prove. With a more than two month break ahead, a positive finish this weekend will set the tone for their training and preparations to finish the series. Teammates Blake Wharton and Hunter Hewitt will replace Davalos and Anderson for the East Coast rounds until the series returns to West Coast in Seattle, WA on April 21st.
