Jason Anderson: Horizon Award WinnerMonday, August 9, 2010 | 10:40 AM

Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green rider Jason Anderson put an end to his stellar amateur career with some dominating performances at the 2010 Loretta Lynn’s AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships.
Jason captured the 450A national championship in the most dramatic of circumstances. He entered the final moto of his amateur career with a 1 -1 moto score, making him the favorite to run away with the title. Hopes seemed to be dashed as Jason got entangled in two pileups soon after the start and a spectacular crash in the rollers after the Ten Commandments. Jason was in dead last place but charged through the pack showing incredible speed and heart. Jason would finish in 5th place which captured the national title.
Jason capped off the fairy tale by earning the AMA Horizon Award for most outstanding and promising rider. This marks the second time a Coach Seiji client has earned this distinction; PJ Larsen earned this award in 2008.
Jason preceded his outstanding Loretta Lynn’s performance at the Ponca City Grand National Motocross Championship the prior week by winning three out of the possible four Pro classes.
Coach Seiji would like to congratulate Jason, his family and his sponsors for an outstanding amateur career. The future is nothing but wide open for this rider and Coach Seiji is proud to be involved with such an outstanding athlete and more importantly, an outstanding person.
