Press day at the 2022 Seattle Supercross is already in the books and all of the teams, riders and fans are excited for Round 12 of racing to get underway at the Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington. Coming into Seattle, Eli Tomac has a large points lead and all the momentum in the 450 class, with Jason Anderson, Malcolm Stewart, Cooper Webb, Chase Sexton and Justin Barcia doing their best to knock him off his throne. In the 250 division, we will have some new faces back at the races with Christian Craig, Michael Mosiman, Hunter Lawrence, Jo Shimoda and the rest of the 250 West field excited to get back to racing.
