2021 SUPERCROSS SEASON POINT STANDINGS AFTER ROUND 17
The final round was one for the books. While the championship may not have been as exciting during the final round, the racing was at an all-time high as every Heat and Main showcased extremely close battles between the riders. In the 250 class, we finally saw the Coasts duke it out for their championships while the 450 class competed for the title. Now the East and West Coast championships may have easily been Justin Cooper and Colt Nichol’s, the fight between the two teammates was still highly anticipated along with more such as the Lawrence’s and the Pro Circuit teammates. In the 450 class, Cooper Webb would have to finish just 19th or better in the Main Event to win the premier title. In the Heat Races, it would be Cameron McAdoo and Michael Mosiman to win their Coastal races. In the premier class, Jason Anderson and Eli Tomac won their Heats.

450 SUPERCROSS FINAL POINT STANDINGS
Cooper Webb didn’t just show up to finish better than 19th, he wanted to win.
The 450 Main was an intense battle throughout the top 10. Ken Roczen grabbed the holeshot with Marvin Musquin and Cooper Webb following closely behind. Cooper made his way around Marvin and Chase Sexton would follow. Then Chase gained significant ground on Ken through the whoops, making the pass and leading the race. Eventually, Ken would run out of steam, falling through the pack and allowing Cooper and many more opponents to make passes. Cooper Webb made the pass on Chase Sexton after Chase made a mistake through a turn, grabbing the lead. Cooper would lead the rest of the race, win, and become the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross 450 champion.

250 EAST SUPERCROSS FINAL POINT STANDINGS
The last time we saw a 250 Coast sweep was all the way back in 2012 with Geico Honda.
Colt grabbed the holeshot in the 250 Main Event and would lead the entirety of the race until Jett Lawrence started to close the gap. Colt let Jett make the pass so that he wouldn’t feel any unwanted heat from the 18. Jett won the race, but Colt would win the 250 East Coast Championship.
250 WEST SUPERCROSS FINAL POINT STANDINGS
Justin Cooper took the struggle bus to the Main Event with a scary mishap in the Heat Race.
Justin Cooper had a little less luck than Colt Nichols throughout the day, being pushed to the edge and over the side of the track in the West Heat Race. Thankfully for Justin, he would regroup and make his way back to eighth place qualifying for the Main. After not getting a very great start, Justin Cooper sat in ninth place for nearly the entire race. It was clear that he was on cruise control and as his hard work throughout the season would allow him to chill through the Main Event. Justin Cooper would easily win the 250 West Coast Championship.
