This Week in Monster Energy Supercross: Race 12 in Santa Clara, CA

Santa Clara SX_040116

450SX Class

  • Hanging Tough: The win awarded to Jason Anderson in Detroit was the second of his career and his second of 2016. He has just three podiums this season, two being wins.
  • Still Going: While a penalty for a racing infraction took a sixth win from Ryan Dungey, he still earned a record 27th straight podium after being docked two positions to third.
  • Chasing 100: Dungey will be in search of his 100th-career top-five finish in Santa Clara.
  • Only Three: Just three riders have earned a top-10 finish in every race this season – Ryan Dungey, Ken Roczen and Jason Anderson.
  • Red Hot: Over the past four races, Marvin Musquin has earned just one fewer point than his teammate Dungey, highlighted by a four-race podium streak featuring three runner-up finishes.
  • Tough Stretch: After opening the season with seven-straight top-10 finishes, Cole Seely has finished outside the top 10 in three of the last four races.

Western Regional 250SX Class

  • Tight At The Top: The top three riders in the Western Regional Championship – Cooper Webb, Joey Savatgy and Christian Craig – are separated by just 16 points.
  • Mirror Image: Webb and Savatgy have the exact same finishing average but are separated by 11 points, thanks largely to Webb’s four wins and six top-two finishes.
  • Streaking: Craig has earned five straight podium finishes, which is the longest streak in the class. All of Craig’s career podium finishes have come this season.
  • Coming On Strong: After earning just one top-five finish in the first three races, Colt Nichols has now posted four-straight top-five finishes, including a career-best second.

    I agree with you Coast Runner. Dungey paid the price for the flagman’s mistake. I wonder if we’ll hear about some mandatory flag training.

    Had the flagman clearly picked either side of the downed rider, racers would have seen him entering or exiting the turn. Waving it in the middle of the turn pointing it parallel to traffic flow at the apex of the turn was both the worst location to wave and the worst direction to wave.

  2. Coast Runner 101 says:

    The red cross flag violation on Dungey was BS. The flagman had the top of the flag stick pointed the same direction Dungey was going as he approached the corner and turned it too late for him to see it coming out of the corner. Bad ruling by the AMA. Try teaching the flagman how flag.
