Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha’s Jeremy Martin grabbed a fourth place finish at round seven of the AMA Supercross Championships, at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
Martin got off to a good start in front of the home crowd, qualifying second at the U.S. Bank Stadium. Although he didn’t get the start he was hoping for in his heat race, he fought his way to finish fifth. The Minnesotan got a better start in the main event in fifth and advanced to fourth before the halfway mark. He tried to push forward for that final podium spot but ultimately took home some valuable points with a fourth-place result.
“I’m leaving here, and I’m healthy.’ said Martin. “The track was good in the end. From media day to the main, I was like, ‘Wow, what a difference!’ Everything was pretty peaky and wasn’t very smooth, so it just felt very foreign out there, and I was struggling.”
“For the main, though, I got a better start, and I was definitely riding better – driving into my rhythms and my turns – but it just wasn’t enough. I made some mistakes out there, and I’m not happy about that, but I also reflect on last year’s season opener, which was bad. I dislocated my shoulder and was out the whole season, so I’m glad to log a fourth tonight. We’ll get back to work this week and go from there.”
