2019 DETROIT SUPERCROSS | FULL COVERAGE

Round eight of the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season is well underway. Qualifying is over with for the 250 class and it was Chase Sexton who logged the fastest time and put his Gieco Honda on top. So far the track is looking really good in Detroit, it’s technical with ruts in the corners, challenging rhythm sections and big whoops. Tonight will be the second Triple Crown race of the year. This means that when the night show starts we will go straight into the Main Events. There will be three Main Events in each class and the rider with the best overall combined score from all three races will be the winner.

In the 250 LCQ it was the #98 of Wilson Fleming who grabbed the holeshot and controlled the race from the start to finish. The Michigan locals, Marshal Weltin and Joey Crown were looking good on the first lap, but unfortunately Weltin made a mistake right before the finish line and landed on a tough block. This caused him to go down right on the lip of the jump and he took out his fellow Michigan rider, Joey Crown with him. Wilson Fleming’s JMC Husqvarna teammate Chase Marquier finished second. Lorenzo Locurcio made his way through the pack to finish third and Justin Thompson grabbed the final spot in the Main Events by finishing fourth.

Chase Sexton_2019 Detroit Supercross-42Chase Sexton qualified first, only .3 ahead of Austin Forkner.

Austin Forkner_2019 Detroit Supercross-46Forkner made a big mistake in the whoops, but he was able to save it and ride away clean. He qualified second. 

Justin Cooper_2019 Detroit Supercross-13Justin Cooper qualified in the number four position at his fourth ever Supercross race.

Qualifying is under way in Detroit, Michigan at round eight of the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season. This is the third round of the 250 East Championship and so far Austin Forkner has been the guy to beat. After winning the first two rounds of the East division, Forkner has the points lead with 52 points. Justin Cooper sits second with 44 points and Jordon Smith is third with 42 points. It will be interesting to see if Austin can go three-for-three or if Jordon Smith, Chase Sexton or Justin Cooper can knock him off the top spot. We’re also going to keep our eyes on Alex Martin tonight, the JGR Suzuki rider has been fast at the first two rounds, but after being taken out in both Main Events we’re sure Alex will be riding with some extra aggression in Detroit.

Triple Crown format breakdown:

The top 18 from the overall fastest qualifying times during the day will advance straight to the main event. There will then be an LCQ that add four more riders for a total of 22 racers in the main event. During the night show, there won’t be any heat races or LCQ’s but each class will have three main events. The 250SX class will compete in three 10-minute main events, while the 450SX class will compete in three 12-minute main events. An Olympic-style scoring method will be used to determine an overall winner in each class from all three main events where the lowest combined score at the end will be awarded the overall win.
