Unfortunately, Star Racing Yamaha´s Nate Thrasher crashed in the Main Event and withdrew from the race while trying to get into the Top 5.

Thrasher had a solid qualifying in sixth and finished third in that first heat race of the evening. In the main event, he was fourth after the start but found himself sixth a couple of laps later. Thrasher kept pushing but unfortunately crashed around the halfway point and withdrew from the race.

“It was a tough Anaheim 1. We were just struggling a bit in practice, but I felt pretty good going into the night show. We finished third in the heat and got a decent start in the main, but unfortunately, I crashed about halfway through the race. I hit a kicker on the hip jump and went down pretty hard. I’m feeling pretty sore, but we’re all good for next weekend. It’s not how we wanted to start the season, but that’s racing. We’ll come back stronger in San Francisco.”

Next weekend, the Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing team heads north to San Francisco, California, for Round 2 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship.
