Team Suzuki Press Release

Rockstar Energy Suzuki’s Jason Anderson powered his Yoshimura-equipped Suzuki RM-Z250 to a sixth-place finish in the 15-lap Lites Main Event at Saturday’s third round of the 2011 AMA/FIM Supercross Lites East Championship at Daytona Beach in Florida.

In the Main, he got bumped at the start and his gear lever was bent, but he rode entire race in third gear to claim sixth place.

“Daytona actually worked out pretty good for me,” said Anderson. “I struggled a little bit in my heat race but made it through to the Main. I got bumped at the start and bent my shift lever; it ended up stuck in third gear.

I had to ride the whole race in third gear so I was on the rev limiter every lap through the whoops, but my RM-Z was amazing and held together and I was pretty excited to come away with a sixth. The Daytona track was kind of a curveball for me, so I’m excited to go to Indy and get back to an indoor stadium.”

Team mate Ian Trettel suffered a bad crash in the afternoon’s first timed practice and sustained a serious head injury. Trettel was treated onsite by the Asterisk mobile medical crew and local EMTs and immediately transported to Halifax Medical Center where he remains under sedation and observation. Reports indicate no sign of spinal cord damage or paralysis and initial CT scans were positive.

The 2011 Rockstar Energy Suzuki team’s next event is Saturday, March 12th, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
