2022 SEATTLE SUPERCROSS // 450 OVERALL QUALIFYING RESULTS (UPDATED)
2022 SEATTLE SUPERCROSS // 450 QUALIFYING RESULTS
The 2022 Seattle Supercross marks the 47th time this series has stopped in Seattle, Washington, since 1978. Plus, this year’s race is also the first time that Supercross has stopped in Seattle since 2019. It was on the schedule in 2020, but the Covid pandemic hit and paused the season one-week before Seattle. And when the series picked back up in 2020, they finished only in Salt Lake City, Utah, and then Seattle was missed again in 2021. Now, for 2022, Supercross is back in Seattle and MXA is at the Lumen Field, capturing all of the action from Round 12.
Eli Tomac is the man to beat in the 450 division, but the others are hungry to stop his dominance. See below for the qualifying results as they come in throughout the afternoon in Seattle, Washington.

450 OVERALL QUALIFYING RESULTS
Malcolm Stewart scored the fastest time in the 450 class today. Like Michael Mosiman in the 250 division, Seattle is also his first time being the fastest qualifier in his class.
Malcolm Stewart pulled off the quickest lap time in the 450 division with the 2019 Seattle Supercross winner Marvin Musquin in second and the points leader Eli Tomac in third. The big story, though, has to do with Anderson and Sexton. Jason Anderson was on a fast lap, looking to put down a solid qualifying time, when Chase Sexton, who was rolling on the side of the track, moved over into his line. This slowed down Jason and clearly frustrated him. He waited up for Chase and attempted to break check him, but then Chase dove underneath Jason and blocked passed him first. Both riders were screwing around with each other wasting time and showing off their egos.
Then, after Chase started going again, he went for a triple onto a table top, in the rhythm section after the start, and he clicked false neutral and went down hard. Luckily, he was ok and could finish the practice. Watch the video of his crash here.

450 QUALIFYING RESULTS: GROUP A SESSION 1
Eli Tomac charging hard on his Star Racing YZ450F.
The track is unique at Seattle. It has a soft base with ruts in the corners and rhythm sections, with some loose/dry dirt on top. It even has a fair amount of rocks and loose pebbles on the track too. Eli Tomac scored the quickest time with Barcia and Musquin behind him in the top three.
Cooper Webb hasn’t been in title contention this season, but he’s still working hard and learning more about the new KTM Factory Edition.
Jason Anderson is looking to bounce back strong this weekend.
