2018 BUDDS CREEK NATIONAL | 450 OVERALL RACE RESULTS

Ken Roczen looked as if he was going to win the overall on the day.

2018 BUDDS CREEK NATIONAL | FULL COVERAGE

With only two rounds of the 2018 AMA National series left, it is coming down to the wire for Marvin Musquin to make up ground on the factory Kawasaki rider of Eli Tomac. Tomac’s sheer speed is unmatched, but his starts are subpar and is prone to make mistakes. Musquin now has only one more round to make something happen as Tomac went 3-1 for the overall in Budds Creeks.

At Budds Creek it was Ken Roczen who won the first moto and was leading the second moto until the points leader hammered down in the second half of the moto and took the lead. Charging behind him was Blake Baggett who made the pass and passed Roczen as well. With Baggett passing Roczen, it gave Tomac the overall with Roczen second and Musquin third.

With Jason Anderson fairing well in the first moto, he did not start the second moto. We are unsure why. Maybe he just had to prove to himself he could be a top runner again. Maybe he overheated? What ever the case may, be Anderson is back!

OVERALL 450 QUALIFYING 

Jason Anderson returns fast as ever.

2018 BUDDS CREEK NATIONAL | FULL COVERAGE

With two rounds to go in the 2018 AMA National Championship series it is Eli Tomac and Marvin Musquin in the 450 class that will be fighting for the number 1 plate. Tomac has a 15 point lead over Musquin which is close enough that Tomac still has to be on his toes for the last four motos of the season.

The talk of Budds Creek is the return of Jason Anderson to the racing scene. We didn’t think we would see him back behind the gate until Monster Cup in October. We also didn’t think he would qualify third in qualifying behind Tomac and Musquin. We are excited to see how he does in the motos.
