2021 SUPERCROSS SEASON POINT STANDINGS AFTER ROUND 14
Round 14 is finally over and the racing we saw was in complete contrast from that of the first Atlanta round in the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season. First, the weather was dry with no rain clouds in sight. Secondly, the track may have had a similar lane layout but the rhythm was completely different and the track’s direction was flipped. So when the racing commenced, it was technical and close but at high speed. The fastest qualifiers were Justin Cooper in the 250 class and Jason Anderson in the 450s. Cameron McAdoo and Justin Cooper both won their races in the 250 West division while Ken Roczen and Marvin Musquin won the Premier class Heat Races. When the gates dropped during the Main Event, the racing was action-packed and extremely close. Scroll down below to see what happened when the Main Events took off and where your favorite rider sits in the points championship.

450 SUPERCROSS POINTS AFTER ROUND 14 OF 17
Ken Roczen grabbed the holeshot with Chase Sexton following closely. Cooper Webb got in the mix but would fall behind several positions as Chase Sexton and Jason Anderson made the passes. Eventually, Justin Barcia got around Cooper Webb and the two would battle it out for the fourth place position. Ken Roczen and Chase Sexton’s lead in the race grew even more as the Cooper Webb was busy holding off the rest of the competition. Jason Anderson sat in third place with Justin Barcia in fourth. With only two laps left, Justin Barcia blocked Cooper Webb on the wall, having the points leader tip over losing several positions. Ken Roczen finished in first while the points leader finished all the way back in sixth.
250 WEST COAST SUPERCROSS POINTS AFTER ROUND 7 of 9
The 250 Main Event was one of the craziest, edge of your seat races we have seen in a long time. As the Main took off, Nate Thrasher grabbed the holeshot but his teammate Justin Cooper took the lead away. Half of a lap in, Cameron went sailing after overjumping one of the rhythms into the face of the bridge jump, locking feet with the handlebars and going limp after hitting the ground. It was a miracle that he got up and actually lined back up on the gate after getting quick a look over by the medical crew. The 250 Main took off again and it was Cameron McAdoo who grabbed the holeshot this time around. Then Justin Cooper made a quick pass and would lead the race for the remainder. Cameron made his way around Nate Thrasher who was in second but it was Hunter Lawrence who would take the position away 3/4s through the race. Justin Cooper won the Main Event with Hunter Lawrence and Cameron McAdoo getting second and third.
