During the second race of Saturday night’s Monster Energy Supercross Triple Crown in Minneapolis, Jason Anderson tried to take the lead from Justin Brayton using an inside line. He couldn’t quite make the pass, though, bouncing off of Brayton, and ending up going off the track. Anderson rode down the side of a rhythm lane and then re-entered the track at the end of the section. He lost several positions while going off the track—going from second to sixth. He would quickly re-pass Blake Baggett to finish fifth, but was penalized one position in the final results, pushing him to sixth.
