Round 13 - AMA Supercross Championship - April 14, 2018
 


Round 13 of the AMA Supercross Championship played host to the third and final Triple Crown on Saturday for what proved to be a challenging racetrack in Minneapolis.



With three Main Events on the schedule, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin finished off strong with a first and second-place finish to ultimately take home third-overall from U.S. Bank Stadium.
 


Earlier in the day, Musquin qualified third on his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to set himself up in a favorable position heading into the first of three Main Events. The Frenchmen got off to a top-five start but he struggled to put the pieces together in the opening race, ultimately finishing seventh.



 Musquin redeemed himself in the second Main Event, climbing his way from as far back as fifth all the way into the lead with a few laps to go. With one win behind him for the night, Musquin entered the third and final Main Event with his sights set on two-in-a-row but a seventh-place start set him back on the opening lap.




Musquin put on a hard-charge to make it all the way up to second, where he ultimately finished in race three. Musquin’s 7-1-2 scores gave him third-overall for the night. 
 



Musquin: “That was a tough one to start the night off with seventh place in the first Main Event. I wasn’t feeling good out there and not riding like myself but we got a lot better for the second Main.



I proved that I was better because of the riding – I had a lot more intensity and I was able to get a win on the second one, so that was amazing and good for everybody. Going into the third, I wanted to do the same but unfortunately the start wasn’t there.



I was able to make up a lot of ground and come back to second place, which is good. I’m really happy with the riding and getting on the podium considering my first terrible main.”
 



250SX East


Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jordon Smith kept his championship hopes alive on Saturday with a consistent performance in the Triple Crown format.



Smith put himself into the position to battle for top positions in each of the three Main Events, where he emerged with a pair of second-place finishes in the first two races and ended the night with a third-place in Main Event 3. Smith heads into the final two rounds with a 12-point deficit in the 250SX East Championship.
