Supercross: Jason Anderson earns first career victory in Anaheim

BY Chase Wilhelm • January 10, 2016

Husqvarna rider Jason Anderson took the lead away from Honda rider Cole Seely with six laps remaining to win his first career 450 Monster Energy Supercross race in Anaheim.

Defending Supercross champion Ryan Dungey battled his way through the Semi and worked his way through the field to finish second. Seely finished third after Dungey passed him on the final lap.

Earlier in the race, Dungey made heavy contact with Suzuki rider James Stewart. Stewart had to be carried off the track by medical personnel, but gave a thumbs up as he was being carted away.

Dungey and two-time Anaheim champion Ken Roczen also crashed in the second heat of the night. Roczen would battle his way back to finish fifth.

Yamaha rider Weston Peick was disqualified early in Anaheim after a physical altercation with Vince Friese on track during the 450SX Semi.

Yamaha rider Cooper Webb took the victory in the 250SX Main Event, with KTM's Jessy Nelson and Husqvarna rider Zach Osborne rounding out the podium.
