The Monster Energy Supercross series makes its way back to Anaheim this weekend for Round 5 of the 2011 season.
Last week in Oakland, was a breakout ride for Bel-Ray backed, Two Two Motorsports, Chad Reed. The multi-time Supercross winner found the podium for the first time this season, with an inspired second place finish after passing defending champion, Ryan Dungey in the last corner on the last lap.
Dodge Motorsports/ Hart and Huntington’s team rider, Ivan Tedesco was injured in a practice crash earlier in the day and was questionable for the evening part of the program. The gritty veteran toughed it out and was rewarded with a 10th place finish for his efforts. His teammate, Chris Blose had an excellent evening. After winning the last chance qualifier, Blose went on to finish right behind Tedesco for 11th in the main event.
As the series moves back to Anaheim for Round 5, all three Bel-Ray backed racers are in the Top 15 in the series’ point standings with Reed in 5th, Tedesco in 11th and Blose in 15th.
