The 46th annual Hangtown Motocross Classic on Saturday lived up to its name with great racing featuring a rookie first-time winner and a change in the 450 class points leader for the 2014 Lucas Oil Motocross series.

MotoSport-sponsored rider Weston Peick, riding on a factory bike for the first time, inched closer to that coveted podium taking eighth in Moto 1 and sixth in Moto 2 for a sixth-place overall. Peick, who took ninth overall for Round 1, started out of the Top 10 in Moto 1 and fought his way to the eighth spot and did a similar push for sixth-place in Moto 2. Peick moved up two spots to seventh-place in the points standings.

MotoSport Crossland Racing rider Jimmy Albertson took 17th place in Moto 1 and 18th in Moto 2 for an overall 19th finish. Davi Millsaps, who rides for the MotoSport-sponsored Rockstar Energy KTM team, is still not expected back to racing until Round 5.

In other 450 class action, rookie Ken Roczen bested his teammate Ryan Dungey on the Red Bull KTM team, and swept both Motos for first-place overall. In Round 1, Dungey passed Roczen in the final moments of Moto 2 to secure first overall. This time, Dungey grabbed the MotoSport.com Holeshot in Moto 1 but Roczen passed him shortly after and never looked back. In Moto 2, Roczen battled Brett Metcalfe, Justin Barcia, and Dungey for the lead and after about 10 minutes finally prevailed.

Roczen's sweep makes him the points leader with 94, five more than Dungey who finished 2-2 for second overall. Trey Canard went 3-4 for his second straight third-place overall and James Stewart narrowly missed the podium racing 5-3 for fourth-overall. Canard holds a slim six point lead over Stewart for third place in points.

Jason Anderson

Jason Anderson, the current 250 class Supercross champion who rides for the MotoSport-sponsored Rockstar Energy KTM team, rebounded from a crash in Moto 2 last week, with a 10-4 showing and sixth overall. His teammate Joey Savatgy returned to action in the 250 class after missing Round 1 because of injury and took 20th overall after riding 14th in Moto 1 and 25th in Moto 2.

Jeremy Martin remained undefeated in the 250 class and swept both Motos, again, and Cooper Webb took second in both Motos, again, for second overall. Cole Seely, who took third overall in Round 1, posted two DNFs dropping him to 11th place in the points standings. Christophe Pourcel took third overall and is also in third-place in points.
