Fantasy Supercross: Anaheim 2 Recap

Fantasy Supercross

Fantasy Supercross action at Anaheim 2 didn’t have the same drama Anaheim 1 had but the Monster Energy Supercross series is still on fire.

The racing was tight and intense, the 250 class showed Cooper Webb and Christian Craig racing a clean back and fourth battle, must see TV. Meanwhile in the 450 class, two two-time champions leave Anaheim 2 and head to Oakland on top of the standings.

Anaheim 2 Results

1st Place Ryan Dungey, Red Bull KTM: Someone better stop this guy from running away with a 2-peat. Dungey started strong and followed Davi Millsaps for a handful of laps. Dungey made the pass on Davi and rode away from the field.

2nd Place Chad Reed, Chaparral/360 Fly Yamaha: Unreal how this man continues to show up and show out week after week. Reed started just behind Davi and Dungey. Reed followed Dungey around Millsaps. The two two-time champs began to checkout.

3rd Place Ken Roczen, Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns RCH Suzuki: Roczen struggled off the gate once again, regained his composure and charged all the way up to third, Qualified 1 in practice and finished  2nd in 450 Heat 2. Rode well and was one of the fastest riders of the night.

4th Place Eli Tomac, Monster Energy Kawasaki: Tomac passed Millsaps shortly after Reed did, Tomac then closed in on Reed. Tomac was putting pressure on Reed but made a mistake, pushed the front end out in a corner, which then allowed Roczen by as well. Tomac is gaining momentum, you can feel him coming.

5th place Jason Anderson, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna: Anderson had a quiet night, not a good start but managed to scratch his way to a 5th place finish

Wild Card 8th Place Justin Brayton, BTO Sports/WPS KTM: Brayton has had a sneaky good year with finishes of 10th, 10th, and 8th. 

2 Clicks Away

6th Place Cole Seely, HRC Honda: Seely rode solid, unfortunately with this field solid gets you 6th place, needs to start up front.

I’ve noticed some familiarities between Dungey, Reed, and Seely. They’re all intelligent and calculated, seems as though they won’t push the envelope unless they absolutely have to, which limits their ceiling but also raises their floor, bringing consistent finishes.

7th Place Davi MillsapsBTO Sports/WPS KTM: Took home the Supercrosslive.com holeshot award,  but faded back to 7th.
