After years of historic racing at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, the Monster Energy Supercross series made its debut inside Petco Park on Saturday in front of a sold out crowd of 42,017 for the sixth race of the 2015. Round 6 also served as this year’s Military Appreciation Race, Trey Canard and Cooper Webb both rode to impressive victories. Canard had to pass and fend off the constant pressure of two-time winner Ken Roczen. In the 250SX, Cooper Webb overcame a violent crash during day qualifying to win his fourth race of the season and put a strangle hold on the points championship heading into the four week break.
Kevin Weisbruch just about made it happen in San Diego, after putting up the 25th fastest lap the Team ECC rider put on a charge in his LCQ to put himself self into 5th place all set up to make the pass for the final transfer spot, but ran out of time and came up just short on the last lap.
Josh Hansen put in his best finish of the year so far in 4th. Hansen got a decent, but what was more impressive is that Hanny made some passes and worked his way up to his finishes spot. It wasn’t only the 100’s finish that garnered, word in the pit is that Josh will on a 450 when the series heads it…
The 250SX west now has some time off and we will get our first look at our east coast guys.
It was an up and down night for Kyle Partridge, after setting the 15th fastest lap time, Partridge easily put himself in the main. But after running strong in a top 20 spot, the 199 ran into issues late in the main to land himself into 21st spot at the checkers.
Nick Wey made his second main of the year, and he did so running a beauty of a one off camo Moto Mafia Crew graphic kit on his way to a 17th. Nick’s regular kit is available now for moto models.
Like Partridge, Josh Grant’s night had some ups ad downs! Grant’s starts we on point and spent a lot lap at the front. Grant was on pace for a semi win when he came together with his teammate, Chad Reed. The collision put Grant over a berm, on to the ground, and off to the LCQ. Luckily, Grant pulled the holeshot and ran away for the win and a spot in the main event. Fired up from the LCQ and his Reed run in…Grant strung together his best finish of the year placing a very respectable 12th
