Chad Reed backed up his Anaheim 2 victory with a wire-to-wire win Saturday night at the third and final Anaheim race.

The 31-year-old moved into the lead on the first lap and fought off a determined Ken Roczen to score his second win of the 2014 Monster Energy season.

“It was a tough racetrack tonight,” said Reed. “It was about making smart choices and putting yourself in a good position to ride 20 solid laps. This win means more to me than the last one [on January 18] where I came from behind because it’s tougher to go out there and lead all 20 laps. We had our bike dialed in tonight and it was one of those nights where it felt one with me.”

Ten of the 11 teams were in action this week at Jerez for the first preseason test of 2014. While the four-day test allowed teams to gather data and adjust to the new cars and technical regulations, it also gave fans an opportunity to see the new-for-2014 cars on track.

Here’s a look at each team on track, with the exception of Lotus. The Enstone-based squad decided to sit out the Jerez test to continue development of their E22. Technical Director Nick Chester believes the team will be ready for the next preseason test in Bahrain on Feb. 19-22.
