This past weekend, the 2019 Supercross series made its way back to Anaheim stadium for the 3rd round of the season. A2 would be the first round of the triple crown racing format. This format switches the night schedule to 3 main events with all qualifying taking place during the day.
In the 450 class, Ken Roczen came into the night with the points lead in the series. Ken got out to a great start in the first main and lead the entire race - eventually getting passed on the last lap to take 2nd. Ken started mid-pack in the second main and had to work towards the front. After securing 3rd, a mistake in the whoops would see Ken go down and lose positions. However, he would recover and work his way back to 5th. Ken got out to another mid-pack start in the third main and pushed his way to 4th. The 3 moto finishes gave Ken 4th overall and would see him maintain his points lead as the series heads to Oakland.
Chad Reed rolled into A2 in custom racewear that paid homage to Jeremy McGrath - the all-time king of supercross and his hero in the sport. Chad had a tough start in the 1st main and would finish in 10th. He had a bike issue after the 1st race that would not allow him to line up for the 2nd main. However, in the 3rd main, he got a good start and finished 5th - his best finish of the year. His overall finish on the night would be 14th.
In the 250 class, Adam Cianciarulo grabbed the holeshot in the 1st main and looked to be on his way to a win. A small mistake saw him go down and fall back in the pack. He would rebound and finish 4th. In the 2nd main, Adam would crash mid-way through the race and eventually finish 14th. In the 3rd main, Adam put in a solid ride and came home in 2nd - taking 5th overall.
Garrett Marchbanks had a tough night in all 3 mains. He would end the night 21st and is looking forward to Oakland.
&The Team Geico Honda riders had a good night. RJ Hampshire would finish 4th on the night with Cameron McAdoo finishing 6th.
