Down two riders due to injury, the Dodge/Hart and Huntington/Sycuan Casino/Bel-Ray Supercross Racing continued its streak of Main Event appearances with both active riders – Josh Hansen and Kyle Partridge – competing in the Main Event Saturday night in Oakland, CA.
Consistency has been the name of the game for Josh Hansen this Supercross season and Saturday night was no different. Hansen rode well all day and scored his fourth straight top ten finish, placing 10th place in the Main Event. Kyle Partridge appeared in the Main Event for the second consecutive week and third time this season. After an impressive qualifying heat, Partridge suffered an early crash in the Main Event and finished in 20th position. Both riders currently rank in the top 20 in overall standings with Hansen 8th and Partridge 19th. The injured Ivan Tedesco remains in 15th position.
The next AMA Monster Energy Supercross Series race will be held this Saturday, February 4th at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, CA.
Quotes from the Team:
Josh Hansen, #100 (Placed 10th): "A solid finish on the No. 100 Dodge/Sycuan Casino/Hart and Huntington/Bel-Ray Racing Kawasaki tonight. The race went good for the results that we got. We struggled all day and could never get the bike right. I just didn't have the comfort level that I needed today. I didn't ride the best, but we managed to get another 10th-place ride and that's good for the points. We're still in the points running. (It's) a long season. We're looking for better results. My guys worked hard all day. We'll take the finish and head down to Anaheim next weekend."
Kyle Partridge, #83 (Placed 20th): "Not a good night for us on the No. 83 Dodge/Sycuan Casino/Hart and Huntington/Bel-Ray Racing Kawasaki. I crashed in the first practice and didn't ride in the second (practice). I had a good Heat race and ran sixth. I went into the Main Event and crashed really hard on the first lap. I bent the bike up pretty hard and I thought that I broke my leg. Luckily, everything is OK and we'll try to get ready for Anaheim next weekend."
