Monster Kawasaki’s Jason Anderson grabbed his second win of the 2022 AMA Supercross season, the third visit to Anaheim’s Angel Stadium.

Points leader Eli Tomac stayed on Anderson’s rear fender early but settled for second in the slick conditions of Anaheim 3. Troy Lee Designs Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Justin Barcia posted his third podium of the year with a steady push forward through the race.

The Western Regional 250SX Class saw a clean sweep of the Angel Stadium events by Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha’s Christian Craig who dramatically stretched out his points lead with the win.


Anderson launched out of the gate and grabbed the holeshot in the 450SX Class Main Event with Eli Tomac right behind and holding tight. Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin pushed into third and kept the top two riders in sight as Tomac hounded Anderson. The two up front were rarely more than a second apart.

Just two and a half minutes into the 20-minute plus one lap race Tomac jumped into the lead, but Anderson retaliated immediately in the next corner and took it right back. A couple laps later Tomac bobbled in the whoops, which had claimed many riders earlier in the night. Tomac stayed on two wheels, but the mistake allowed Anderson some breathing room. From there the Kawasaki rider rode his own race to the checkers.

Just past the race’s midpoint Musquin collided with a lapped rider and went down, dropping to seventh. Barcia inherited third place after clawing his way forward from a slow start. Last weekend’s second place finisher, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Malcolm Stewart, carded fourth place. Musquin was able to pass his way forward after his crash to earn a top five finish.

Round one winner Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen was pushed wide in the first corner. He tangled with a Tuffblox and emerged from the turn in last place. He moved through the pack on slick track but was only able to reach eleventh place by the end.
