The 2024 Supercross series is headed back west for the sixth round in Glendale, Arizona. The championship battle continues, with 450 class riders Chase Sexton and Jett Lawrence separated by only one point. In the 250 class, Levi Kitchen managed to tie the points lead with Star Racing Yamaha’s Jordon Smith after grabbing the win in the last west coast round at Anaheim. R.J. Hampshire is just 8 points behind the lead as they head into the event. A lot of battling is expected to take place, so be sure to keep up with the action. Below, you can find the full pre-race report that keeps you up to date with the upcoming event.



The title contenders Jett Lawrence and Chase Sexton.

Last weekend in Detroit, Jett Lawrence became the first rider to win two Supercross events in the 2024 season, breaking the streak of bad luck he had experienced in previous rounds. Not only did Jett win in Detroit, but he also did so in dominant fashion by starting the race up front and increasing his lead until the end. Looking much more like the rider we have seen previously, it appears that his confidence is back, and he is looking to continue this momentum into the next round in Glendale. Being only one point out of the points lead, this event will be critical for his success.

Levi Kitchen is another competitor carrying momentum into Glendale. In the last event at Anaheim, he secured victory through consistent performances, finishing 1-2-3 in the Triple Crown format. After a two-week hiatus, he now shares the lead in points with Jordon Smith. However, the road to victory remains challenging, with contenders like R.J. Hampshire, Nate Thrasher, and Jordon Smith all vying aggressively for the top spot. Nonetheless, clinching the win at Anaheim has significantly boosted Kitchen’s confidence, positioning him advantageously with momentum on his side.

It features two large whoop sections and extensive, technical rhythm sections, along with several 180-degree turns that are expected to be crucial for passing.

Chase Sexton 2024 Anaheim 1 Supercross Practice-3099Chase Sexton regained the 450 points lead in Detroit.

Jett Lawrence became the first rider this season to win two races and looked confident through the entire day in Detroit. Coming from a few crashes the past couple of weekends he was able to rebound and dominate the event. The former points leader, Aaron Plessinger, had a bad start but continuously made up positions to salvage valuable points and stay a contender within the series. Chase Sexton however remained consistent and he was able to walk away from Detroit with the Red Plate. This is familiar ground for Sexton as he has possessed it already once this season. Great racing today and we will see if Chase and Jett can carry the momentum into Glendale.

Jordon Smith 2024 Anaheim 2 Supercross Mai Events-2217Jordon Smith is now tied with Levi Kitchen and will share the red plate in Glendale. 

Jordon Smith had a firm grip on the 250 points lead coming into A2, but a fifth place overall after three Main Events allowed Levi Kitchen to make up the gap and find himself tied with Smith for the points lead going into Round 4 of the 250 West in Glendale, Arizona. R.J. Hampshire and Levi Kitchen traded wins in the first two Main Events, but it was Levi who was consistent with his starts, getting up front early in the third Main Event, while R.J. was stuck in the back of the back. R.J. made an impressive charge to the front, but then he went down in the whoops. Nate Thrasher won the third Main from start to finish and Jo Shimoda came up and passed Levi Kitchen, but they were both further back in the first two races, which meant Levi had a healthy points gap overall and he didn’t have to beat those two riders to take the overall win and tie for the points lead.

Adam Cianciarulo 2024 San Diego Supercross Qualifying-2600Adam Cianciarulo broke his left hand while battling for the 13th spot in the last turn at Anaheim 1 when Jorge Prado ran into him. Adam said that he was able to ride through the pain in the mud at San Francisco and San Diego, but the Anaheim 2 track was too technical and demanding for him to fight through the pain. He rode practice in Detroit, but decided not to qualify for the night show. 


Colt Nichols 2024 Beta Supercross teamColt Nichols is riding for the brand-new Liqui Moly Beta Supercross team. Unfortunately, he broke his shoulder blade before the season started. He is back riding as of this week, but he is easing into it and we don’t expect him to line up for at least a few weeks. 


Enzo Lopes 2024 YamahaEnzo Lopes underwent “Arm Pump” surgery on his forearms, which is claimed to help improved blood flow to the arms. This type of surgery usually takes a few weeks to recover from but in Enzo’s case, it has been lingering over the last couple of months. He decided to sit out Detroit to continue the healing process and is trying to get back to full strength for the next East Coast round in Arlington, Texas.

Enzo Lopes stated: “Riding for Star Racing comes with a lot of expectations, especially after my momentum from last season. Unfortunately, the cards we were dealt with this off-season were out of our control, and with that, we agreed on missing Round 1 so that I can be back to 100% by Arlington. I am super bummed, but I know in the long run this will be the best decision for me and also the team.”


Max Vohland 2024 Anaheim 1 Supercross Qualifying-0845Max Vohland had a crash in training on the Pro Circuit test track at Glen Helen and dislocated his hip. Max will unfortunately be out the remainder of the season and his date of return is still unknown.
