Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha Christian Craig shot to main event victory at this weekends second round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross championship.
Once again, Craig was the fastest qualifier and then backed it up with a heat win. He got a good start in the main event and quickly took over the lead on Lap two.
The Californian put in some consistently fast laps to build a comfortable gap up front, ultimately crossing the line with a 5.6-second margin. His first back-to-back win in the class gives Craig an eight-point lead in the 250SX West Championship before heading to his hometown race in San Diego, California.
“The day was solid.’ Said Craig. “I qualified first and then backed it up in the heat race and then got off to a good start in the main.”
“I was second-place, and then the guy in front of me stalled it, so I made the pass and just never looked back. It was a pretty basic win, but it was nice to score my first back-to-back win. I was coming off a good weekend at Anaheim 1 and then had a good week at the practice track.”
“So I came in here with confidence and just rode like I did last week, and like I do at the practice track every week, which is basically just having fun, and it’s been showing in my riding lately. It’s great to start the season off like this. I have a great support group and people that push me every day to be where I am. I’m really looking forward to my hometown race in San Diego next weekend, so let’s keep it going.”
