AMA Supercross Series 450SX championship leader Jason Anderson had a huge challenges from the star studded field at the start of the Main Event at Glendale, Arizona, last Saturday night having to dig deep and battle hard to a fourth place ride.
The The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider was the fastest qualifier of the day aboard his Husqvarna 2018 FC 450 Rockstar Edition. Feeling confident, he pulled the holeshot in his heat, pulled away, and took another heat race win in dominating fashion.
Anderson got a great start in the 450 Main Event and immediately started battling near the front, but was in the middle of a freight train of riders and shuffled back a few spots. He regrouped and began reeling in riders with seven minutes plus two laps remaining in the race. Putting in an amazing charge, he set the fastest lap of the race with two laps to go and finished fourth behind Ken Roczen, Justin Barcia and winner Eli Tomac.
Anders's ability to limit the damage on the night meant he would leave with the series points lead once again and will hold onto the red plate as the series heads to Oakland, CA next week for round five.
