It’s now four winners in four rounds of the 2022 AMA Monster Energy Supercross Championship Series. Eli Tomac started the 450SX Main Event in P5 and worked his way to the front, passing eventual runner-up Jason Anderson when Anderson overcooked a corner, nearly sending Anderson over a berm. Last week’s winner Chase Sexton was a comfortable third. Dylan Ferrandis’ P12 start forced him to work his way through the field to a P4 finish. Malcolm Stewart ran up front after a P2 start before fading to P5—Stewart’s third P5 finish in succession.

Tomac retains the red plate, extending his series points lead over Sexton to six points. Anderson sits in P3, two points behind Sexton. All three are 2022 race winners.

Ken Roczen led the four opening laps before a violent collision with Anderson as the two exited the sand section. Roczen eventually remounted, finding himself in P20 on lap 6. Roczen was only able to salvage a P13 finish. Roczen is P9 in the standings, 23 points behind leader Tomac.

It was a repeat podium in the 250SX West class, with each of the three riders securing a different slot. This week, Christian Craig returned to the top step, giving him his third win in four races. Last week’s winner Michael Mosiman took P2 after leading laps 2 through 9. Hunter Lawrence made it four podiums in four rounds by moving into P3 on the penultimate lap when he passed Vince Friese, who had crashed hard in the whoops.

The triumvirate of Craig, Lawrence, and Mosiman has taken 10 of 12 podium slots in four races. Seth Hammaker has the other two podium finishes, but a training crash between rounds 2 and 3 put him out indefinitely.
