HRC Honda’s Ken Roczen finished in seventh position at round nine of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series on Saturday, after struggling for a few weeks prior.
In the 450SX class, Chase Sexton and Ken Roczen both earned third-place finishes in their respective heat races before Sexton secured the same result in the main event, the seventh premier-class podium of his young career. Meanwhile Roczen finished seventh. Roczen enjoyed a decent main-event start and ran as high as fifth early on before slipping to seventh place.
“Daytona is always one of the most fun races to go to.” said Roczen. “The track is brutal, and overall the vibe of the place is just always very special. I just love the venue, and I love coming here.”
“I had a really good day throughout the day. I was somewhat up front with the other guys in practice and qualifying, and I was enjoying my riding. Nothing different on the result board, but it was fun.”
