The 2016 Supercross Rookie of the Year award is given to the rookie rider who earns the most points in his or her class.

Frye, of Huntington, Md., finished 14th overall in the 250SX East class, which was loaded with veteran riders. He qualified for all main events except for the SX season finale in Las Vegas, where he crashed and was unable to qualify.
