1. Jason Anderson – Rockstar Energy Racing
Anderson developed into a consistent contender towards the end of last season and I thought he’d be the breakout rider of the 2014 season. He very well could be a true title threat after his performance last Saturday. Given the stacked field, Anderson was probably somewhat of a surprise winner and it will be interesting to see if he keeps the momentum going.
