As mentioned in our post Saturday night after the Anaheim II Supercross, Jason Anderson was officially penalized today (Sunday, January 19) by the AMA for jumping a section of the track while the red-cross flag was being waved for a down rider. Another racer, Chris Proscelle, was also penalized for the same reason.
The AMA determined that Anderson, who finished second in the 250 West main and was leading the 250 West Supercross Championship, had jumped out of a rhythm section when he was supposed to have “rolled” the obstacle. The AMA used footage from Anderson’s own helmet-mounted camera to help verify the infraction, Cycle News learned.
According to a spokesperson from Anderson’s Rockstar Energy Racing Team, the team does not plan to appeal.
As a result, Anderson was dropped from second to fourth in the race results, costing him four points in the standings. He is now one point behind new class leader, Cole Seely.
