FERRIS EARNS 7TH AT PHOENIX SUPERCROSS
PHOENIX, Arizona – Red Bull KTM Factory rider Dean Ferris earned a top ten finish at his second 250 Supercross race at the second round of the Monster Energy Supercross Series held at Chase Field. KTM rider Jason Anderson took the second win in a row!
Dean Ferris felt ill all week and did not have a lot of time on the practice track between Anaheim and the Phoenix Supercross races. Despite his health issues he showed up at Phoenix determined to improve his performance from the week before and he was able to meet his goal.
Ferris earned the final qualifying spot in his heat race after getting a decent start and hanging on to finish 9th. In the main event, Ferris got a mid-pack start and was sitting in 10th at the end of the first lap. Ferris continued to turn consistent lap times throughout the main and slowly worked his way up through the pack. At the end of the fifteen-lap main, Ferris had worked his way up to 7th overall on his KTM 250 SX-F.
“I am very happy to earn a top ten finish tonight”, commented Ferris. “I’m new to Supercross so each week, during practice and racing I am learning a lot and making improvements. I am glad to get a better finish for my team this weekend and hope I can continue to work toward a top five result.”
