A first-turn pileup included Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac, Monster Energy/ Knich/ Yamaha Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb, and Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen, while Roczen’s teammate Cole Seely grabbed the holeshot and led 12 laps before Anderson’s come-from-behind charge.

“I’ve just been putting myself in good positions, and I’ve just been fighting,” Anderson said on the podium. “I really had to keep my head down, but, man, I’m excited to keep getting these wins and podiums, and I’m just grateful for the opportunities.”

Team Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin started fourth and battled his way up into second.

For the second consecutive week, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC/ KTM/ WPS Team’s Blake Baggett rounded out the podium after a seventh-place start.

In the 250SX-class main event, Monster Energy/ Pro Circuit/ Kawasaki’s Joey Savatgy earned his third holeshot of the year, ahead of his teammate Adam Cianciarulo and Autotrader/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing’s Justin Hill.

Cianciarulo then led for 11 laps before Hill found the lead, which he held for six laps to score his first main-event win of 2018. GEICO Honda’s Chase Sexton picked up his second career podium finish in third, behind Cianciarulo in second.

“It was tough, I’m not gonna lie,” Hill said on the podium, “but this track lends itself to me, because it was technical… I’m beyond psyched, and to put the bike on the top step and kind of shut up all the haters in a way, I feel really good about it, and I feel back to my true form.”
