Christian Craig Salt Lake City AMA Supercross

Team Honda HRC fill-in rider Christian Craig took a career-best-equalling fourth overall on Saturday night in Salt Lake City.

Craig, who will also take the place of the injured Cole Seely when the action moves outdoors later this month, was in a podium position for much of the race but lost out in the closing stages.

“In the Main I thought ‘I’m just going to try to get a good start and stay up there with those guys’ which is exactly what I did,” he said. “I latched onto the top two and put in my laps.

“I stayed with [Blake] Baggett for as long as I could. Eli [Tomac] was just on a mission. He passed me but fell and I thought I might get a podium if he stayed down long enough. He got by me again but it was a fun race.

“I’ve had some bad races since Daytona and you begin to wonder if the Daytona ride was a fluke. It feels good to back up that fourth place.”
