450 QUALIFYING RESULTS | 2021 ATLANTA SUPERCROSS 1
The 13th round of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season is finally here in Atlanta Motor Speedway, located in Hampton Georgia. The 13th round is like Daytona’s little sister, featuring some outdoors-inspired features but still primarily a Supercross-styled track. Eli Tomac proved to be stronger than everyone else, with a very close Aaron Plessinger, on the outdoors-inspired track layouts. Cooper Webb remains dominant in the points chase after having another flawless residency in Arlington, putting himself 15 points ahead of rival Ken Roczen. Time is running out for Ken to make it happen and beat the number 2 but with the moto-styled track, Eli Tomac may be the one to shake things up in the championship, even though he still sits 41 points behind Cooper Webb. If you’re here on the West Coast, you’re going to have to wake up early to view Supercross live as race day live commences at 6 in the morning, considerably earlier than every round in the series. So grab some coffee, your fantasy Supercross picks, and find out who’s the fastest qualifier in the premier class down below.

450 OVERALL QUALIFYING RESULTS
The sand should be pretty fun if it rains. Well, not really.
Jason Anderson made his way to the front of the pack in the first time qualifying session to get a clear track. Right away, Cooper Webb set the fastest lap time with his teammate, Marvin Musquin following closely behind. After another lap, Jason Anderon moved to the top with a 1:40.8 lap time. For the first time in the season, the top 20 weren’t all within two seconds. Ken Roczen and Malcolm Stewart moved up to first and second place, sitting in the minute and 39 second lap time. Aaron Plessinger continued to surprise us as he took away the top position from Ken Roczen but it was Jason Anderson who would squeeze by and be the fastest rider in the first timed qualifying session.
The second session of timed qualifying was canceled due to inclement weather. First qualifying session times are used for overall.
