The top 8, in photos, from the 2018 Houston Supercross

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson grabbed his first win of the season at the second round of the Monster Energy Supercross series, an FIM World Championship, which took place at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. Anderson came around the first corner in fourth place and passed Autotrader/JGR/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing’s Weston Peick, Monster Enery/Knich/Yamaha Factory Racing’s Justin Barcia in the first half of the race and Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen in the latter half to emerge victorious in Texas.

“Houston was probably the most perfect day I’ve ever had in my career,” said Anderson. “I won every time I was on the track - both practices, heat race and main. It was a battle, but it was awesome. I’m in the zone but, at the same time, I don’t want to get ahead of myself. I feel good and I’m in a good spot."

Roczen achieved his first podium finish of the season crossing the line in second while Barcia grabbed the final spot on the podium in third. Rounding out the top five was Seely and Peick, respectively.
