2022 SUPERCROSS SEASON POINT STANDINGS
The 2022 Monster Energy Supercross is finally wrapped up and it was one of the most exciting seasons we have witnessed. From riders joining new teams to champions being crowned young and old, 2022 offered the first year where Supercross was finally back to normal. Two titles were already claimed before the final round held in Salt Lake City, Utah, but there was one still up for grabs. Jett Lawrence was the first of the three to clinch a title back at Foxborough, winning the championship on his Honda. Then, Eli Tomac made it happen in Denver, clinching the championship for Star Yamaha. Then in Salt Lake City, it was Christian Craig’s to win as he gathered a massive lead in the points. However, there were plenty of battles to be won when it came to the championship podium, especially in the 450 class with a fight for third place between Justin Barcia, Malcolm Stewart, and Marvin Musquin. So scroll down below to find out what happened after the gate dropped for the Main Events.
