Author: Aaryn Minerds


Jason Anderson has been stripped of his Red plate in the Monster Energy Supercross 250SX Western Regional Championship after violating section 4.15 of the rule book during Saturday nights main event.

Anderson who won the opening two rounds of the championship ahead of Troy Lee Designs Honda rider Cole Seely, raced his Rockstar KTM to a hard fought second place at A2, ensuring he maintained a slim three point lead in the championship.

However Anderson along with Chris Proscelle were penalised at the conclusion of the race and each docked two positions for jumping while a medical flag and red flashing lights were shown during the main event.

"Two riders were penalized due to AMA Supercross Rulebook violations that took place during the 250SX main event of the third round of the 2014 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, in Anaheim, Calif., on Jan. 18," a statement released by the AMA, the sports governing body in the United States read.

Sction 4.15 of the rule book which was violated can be seen below.

The resultent penalty to Anderson, saw him moved back to fourth place for the evening, resulting in him dropping four championship points and now sits one point behind Seely who inherited the red plate and championship lead..
