Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing's Zach Osborne had an breakthrough night at the eighth round of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, held at the Georgia Dome on Saturday as he took a maiden victory in the 250SX East Class.
Osborne got third at the start of his heat, settled into a comfortable lead in lap two, and held on for the win. He got a top-five start in the main and moved into second by the end of the third lap. He made an impressive pass for the lead in the fifth lap and held strong to take his first victory in his 49th start.
As an added bonus the win sees him first overall in 250SX East rider point standings and heads to the next round with the coveted red plate.
"I had a great night," said Osborne. "I worked hard for that win and I'm ready to keep the momentum going into next week. It feels good to have the red plate."
