San Bernardino, Calif (May 26, 2018) – Marvin Musquin put together another solid ride during Round 2 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Glen Helen Raceway, scoring second overall with a 2-3 moto score. Glen Helen is always known to be one of the roughest and toughest tracks of the circuit and today was no exception.
During Moto 1, Marvin got off to a tenth-place start where he strategically maneuvered through a quickly deteriorating track and moved into seventh during the opening lap. He put on a fearless charge to conquer fourth by lap two and worked his way into third by the sixth lap. By the half way point, Marvin caught up to the second-place leader and sliced to the inside and took over second for the remaining of the race.
In Moto 2, Marvin started up front in second and held the position for the first seven laps. Unfortunately, he lost the momentum during the second-half of the moto and he settled for third in the end, earning second overall with a 2-3 moto score. Marvin is currently sitting second in the championship points.
Musquin:“Definitely a tough day for sure, Glen Helen is so unique and a rough track again coming down the hills. I didn’t get a good start for the first one and I had to fight hard to come back to the lead. I had good momentum and got Jason for third, Roczen for second and Eli was ahead so I came back to second, so it was a great moto. In the second moto, I was looking for a better start to fight for the lead and that’s actually what I did and I was in the top-three and got to second and tried to catch Jason who was leading. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it happen and started losing a little bit of ground and went down to third. From there, I rode it to the finish in the third position and lost the momentum after half way and could only manage to finish in third.”
