Rockstar Energy Suzuki's Jason Anderson picked-up his best moto finish of the season at the weekend's tenth round of the AMA Motocross Championship at Unadilla in New Berlin, New York with fifth place in the opening moto of the Lites class aboard his RM-Z250. 

In the second moto, he struggled a bit but still finished 12th but still finished the day in eighth overall.

"This weekend was decent," said Anderson. "I had a good first moto then I crashed on the start of the second moto and came back to 12th. I have some stuff to work on and my plan is to come in to Steel City feeling good."

Rockstar Energy Racing team mate Martin Davalos recovered from his illness last week and finished right behind Anderson in the 250 class overall results. Davalos was consistent in both motos picking up 13th and seventh-placed results to capture ninth overall for the day.

"In the first moto, I didn't get the greatest start," said Davalos. "I rode tight and did OK and I got 13th. In the second moto, I got a way better start and I was able to ride my own race at my own pace. I was pretty happy with my second moto and I finally felt like I was riding like myself again. So we'll take a short break and come back ready for Steel City." 

Rockstar Energy Racing's Blake Wharton started the day strong by finishing his first moto in a very respectable fourth place. In the second moto he suffered a crash and didn't finish but still finished a solid 11th overall. 

Rockstar Energy Racing's Hunter Hewitt remains out due to illness, but hopes to be racing before the end of the season. And Rockstar's Jessica Patterson is on hiatus until the WMX class resumes at the final round of AMA Pro Motocross at the Lake Elsinore National in September. 

The next event for the Rockstar Energy Racing Suzuki is the 11th round of the 2012 AMA Pro Motocross Championship on Saturday, September 1st, at the Steel City National in Delmont, PA.
