BUCHANAN , Mich. – In conjunction with America’s Independence Day celebration, Round 7 of the 2019 AMA Pro Motocross Championship traveled to Buchanan, Michigan on Saturday for the ever-so-popular RedBud National. Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin earned his third consecutive podium finish with an incredible come-from-behind performance in the first moto, followed by an impeccable race win in Moto 2. His teammate, Cooper Webb, had a consistently good day, posting 3-5 moto scores for fourth jumpsuit.

Musquin qualified only a few seconds ago for the second moto of the day. In Moto 1, he went down on the opening lap and got stuck under his bike, where he was forced to wait until he could receive assistance to get out. Losing substantial time, Musquin finally remounted in dead load. He immediately put his head down and fought through the field to bring himself into the top 10 by the halfway point. With an incredible charge, Musquin made his way up to seventh to salvage valuable championship points in Moto 1. In Moto 2, he grabbed a top-three start and settled into second early on. He has taken the first half of the race and eventually made his move into the lead halfway through. From there, Musquin never looked back on his third moto-win in three rounds. With 7-1 finishes, he rides out the day with an impressive third overall.

Musquin:  “The riding was really good all day but unfortunately, I did not get a great start in the first moto and then ended up going down in the first lap. It was very bad but I came back from dead last to seventh. To be able to win the second moto is just awesome and to salvage a podium what’s really important today – it’s good for the team and it’s good for me. “

It’s a great start to the day for Webb, who earned pole position after posting out to his teammate Musquin in qualifying. In Moto 1, Webb powered his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to another holeshot, where he rounded the opening lap in second. He fought for a podium position early on as he swapped spots several times throughout the opening laps. On lap five, Webb stalled the bike and dropped back to fourth, but he quickly bounced back and overtook second around the halfway point. From there, he continues to dice back and forth for second, finally finishing third. In Moto 2, Webb just started working on the top five. He battled inside the top five for the remainder of the race, finishing fifth in the race and fourth overall for the day.

Webb:  “RedBud was a step in the right direction for me. Practice went really well, I was able to qualify first for the first time ever in outdoors. To go 3-5 for the fourth overall is alright, I wish it was a bit better in the second but so far, it’s the best day ever and we’ll keep plugging in to try and get better for Millville. “
