Round two of the 2018 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship is this Saturday at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The Monster Energy/Knich/Yamaha Factory Racing team – with riders Cooper Webb (#2) and Justin Barcia (#51) aboard their all-new, factory-prepared YZ450F machines–are ready to send it onto the podium.
Cooper said: “I’m looking forward to Houston. I got the first-race jitters out of the way at Anaheim, and I know what I need to improve on. I won my first championship in Houston, so that city and NRG Stadium bring back good memories for me. It should be a good one this weekend!”
“I’m very excited to be racing in Houston this weekend,” commented last week’s third-place finisher Justin. “NRG Stadium is an incredible venue, and the dirt is always interesting there. Sometimes, it’s really tacky and, other times, it can be hard pack, so that should make the racing fun. I had an awesome race last weekend at A1, and I look forward to backing it up this weekend in Texas!”
