Supercross: Top 5 Reasons Why Jason Anderson is a Title Contender

Could 2018 be the year of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson? If it turns out that way, here are five reasons why it will.

1. He’s aggressive.

Jason Anderson (21) isn’t afraid to bang bars with anyone, including Justin Barcia (51) another rider known for his on-track aggression.

Jason Anderson may have made more on-track passes than any other rider over the past few seasons—he certainly did in 2016. On the one hand, it speaks ill of his ability to get a good start, but it also shows that he is a hard charger who won’t rest until he is battling for the podium. In 2017 Anderson landed 12 top-five finishes in 17 rounds of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series, including five third-place finishes and one win. Prior to missing out on rounds of the 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship due to an injury, Anderson scored seven podium finishes and three more top-five finishes in the 14 motos he started. If you’re looking for a consistent frontrunner, Anderson could be your man.
