Colt Nichols won the season-opening Anaheim 1 250sx race at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California. The Yamaha racer started the race first and led 16 of the laps.
The Muskogee, Oklahoma qualified third for the race. He received 26 points for the win.
“This is a really, really big moment for me,” Nichols said. “I finally came into this season healthy. The last two years I’ve had big off-season injuries and it’s kind of been killing me… Looks like it’s going to be a dogfight between all of us and I can’t wait.”
Dylan Ferrandis was the second-place finisher. The Murrieta, California native started fourth and worked his way up to second.
“I had a rough day,” Frenchman Ferrandis said. “I crashed in practice, I had some issues with the bike in the heat race, and also a crash at the start, so to finish 2nd tonight is really good.”
Shane Mcelrath was the third-place finisher. He also received the holeshot to begin the race.
He started the race second, but finished third overall. He also was the lone KTM rider in the Top 3, as Ferrandis rides a Yamaha, like Nichols.
“I mean, this is A1,” McElrath said. “All the pressure is here. I was really nervous and everybody, they’re like, ‘Man, you’ve got to make it 3 in a row.’ And it’s like, you bet I want to do that, but to finish up here on the podium… We’ll take a 3rd.”
