Short Earns 10th at St. Louis Supercross
Red Bull/KTM Factory Team rider Andrew Short earned 10th overall at the fourteenth round of the AMA Supercross Series in St. Louis, MO.
 
Short had a decent day qualifying 7th fastest in practice times and qualifying 5th in his heat race. His teammate, Mike Alessi, qualified in 6th place behind Short to put his KTM 350 SX-F into the main. 
 
In the main event, both Short and Alessi struggled off the start and began the race near the tail end of the pack. At the end of lap two, Short was sitting in 14th and Alessi was 17th. By the end of the race Short was able to fight his way into the top ten to finish 10th overall. Alessi suffered a crash late in the race and recovered to earn 16th. 
 
"I was bummed that I couldn't have been closer to the top five tonight. Unfortunately, I got a bad start and it's very hard to climb through the pack with the level of competition we have this year. I will continue to work on my starts and hope for a better result next weekend," remarked Short.
