AMA Supercross - Round 7 - Orlando, FL
Marvin Musquin started out the night strong with a 3rd place heat race. In the main event Musquin overcame a 13th place start for 7th place by the checkers.
Jason Anderson also had a strong start to the night with a 2nd place in his heat race. Anderson would have to come from a 14th place start got up to 6th with 2 laps to go but went down in lapped traffic to finish 8th in the 450 main.
Musquin: “I was a little bit off in practice but I focused on the night show and made sure I had a good heat race to put myself in good position. I was so ready for the Main Event, I had a good gate and when I let the clutch go it started spinning and my rear wheel went sideways. I lost balance and was dead last off the start, exactly what I didn’t want to do. I put my head down and tried my best, as always. It was sketchy making passes in the beginning but I ended up seventh. I’m just bummed. It was a bit muddy behind the gate and things like that happen.”
“It was an improvement all around for me today” Anderson said. “My practices were better and my racing was quite a bit better, so If I could get a start it would help my results. In the Main Event, I got up there after a not-so-good start and got behind Tomac in sixth but I came together with someone, it was more my fault than anything, and dropped back but we’ll move on to next week and keep progressing.”
