AMA Supercross - Round 13 - Atlanta, GA
AMA Supercross kicked off the triple header at Atlanta and Jason Anderson started off the day strong as fastest qualifier. Anderson claimed another heat race win and in the main event made contact in the first turn damaging his shift lever. He would come from 11th to 4th by the checker flag.
Marvin Musquin finished 6th in his heat race and 7th in the main event.
“Atlanta one was a good day for the most part,” Anderson said. “I qualified P1 in practice and went into the heat race and got first. In the Main Event, I got a little tangled up in the first corner and ripped my shifter off but I was able to get into third, manage my race and still get fourth so it was pretty good.”
Musquin: “It’s good to be back racing but it was crazy to only get one practice considering you have to learn the track and go straight to qualifying. The laps were super long and the practice was super short so I only got one really good lap and then I made a mistake and it cost me big time. Racing was completely different – it was tough conditions but the track turned around and shaped up really well for the main and I ended up seventh. Considering the whole day, I’m not happy with the result but I’m trying to be more consistent and just rebuild from some of the problems I’ve run into this season.”
In the 250 class Jalek Swoll 8th in the main event and Stilzes Robertson finished 11th.
“It was survival out there today with the muddy and tough conditions,” Swoll said. “The heat race was going decent but then I went down and it left me with a not-so-great gate pick for the Main Event and I got pinched off in the start. We’ll be back for the next Atlanta round and try to land on the box.”
