Britain’s Max Anstie bagged more Monster Energy Supercross points at the weekend in his second championship appearance and fulfilled a dream by racing at Daytona.
The sand specialist looked and felt at home on the hybrid Supercross-Motocross track that combined high speed sections with steep jump faces.
Anstie’s finish bumped him up three positions in the points standings after entering the series at the second Orlando round and unable to race because of injury from the start of the series.
“It’s always been a dream to race the Daytona Supercross with the best guys in the world. The team made progress all day and we learned a lot. I rode my laps in the main event and came away with a 14th. I’m looking forward to heading to Texas next week,” said the Twisted Tea Suzuki rider.
“I think we made some good steps,” said team boss Dustin Pipes. “Max had a good day and we’re building each week. We know that he’s not at his peak yet, but there’s a lot of plusses to take away. We are excited for the future.”
