Anaheim “3” due to the third visit to the room was the site of the second success of Angel Stadium this term Webb and his latest spoil helped stretch his lead in the standings to eighteen points over Nelson. It was a memorable evening for Star team which also boast the 2014 AMA Motocross champion Jeremy Martin 250MX in their ranks who saw Aaron Plessinger make the podium in third place in what was a career turning point for the young. The YZ250F was a protagonist in the class of the West Coast with Alex Martin also break the top three last week in Oakland on its Rockriver Yamaha.

I’m happy for my teammate and my team Yamalube Racing Star to go 1-3 is a pretty cool night,” Webb told on Live TV team Supercross. “We are doing well now, but we have to keep the ball. I did not do well at first but Anaheim winning ‘2’ and ‘3’ is spectacular.”
