HOUSTON SX RACE RECAP

This weekend, the 2019 AMA Supercross series headed to Houston, TX for the last of the Triple Crowns. Things have heated up both the 450SX and 250SX classes.

 

250 CLASS

Adam Cianciarulo #94

Adam Cianciarulo brought the speed to Houston. He was first in qualifying and won the first of the three mains. In the second main, however, Cianciarulo was forced off the track in turn one, dropping him back to tenth. He was able to move up through the field, but a fall landed him back in tenth at the checkered flag. In the last main, he was riding in the top five when a rider fell in front of his path. He was unable to avoid the downed rider and went down himself. He remounted quickly, picked off several riders, and passed for third on the final lap.

 

Garrett Marchbanks #61

In the first main, Marchbanks got off to a rough start but was able to work his way back to tenth. In the second main, he had a great start and passed for third on the final lap to finish on the podium. In the last main, he crashed in the first turn and was forced to retire early.
