Team Suzuki Press Office – March 15.

Max Anstie: RM-Z450 – 16th

Suzuki’s Max Anstie kicked off three back-to-back races of the Monster Energy/ AMA World Supercross Championship in Texas at the weekend at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on Saturday, scoring more points in only his third SX race.

The Twisted Tea/ H.E.P. Motorsports/ Suzuki rider had a strong night and stepped up another position in the points, while teammate Brandon Hartranft notched another event in his rookie season aboard his Suzuki RM-Z450.

Anstie and his RM-Z450 are getting faster and more comfortable after his comeback from pre-season injury: After tight battling in heat two, he earned a direct transfer to the main event. An outside gate on the rutted starting straight put him in a tough position, but he raced forward and gained a few positions on the opening lap, earning enough points to advance him up one position in the title standings.
