250 EAST/WEST SHOWDOWN MAIN EVENT RESULTS | 2021 SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS 2
Tonight is the battle we’ve all been waiting for, the battle between the 250 East and West Coast riders. The championship may be solidified for two Star Yamaha riders but we’re itching at the edge of our seats to see the two coasts duke it out. There are several battles we’re looking forward to; Cooper vs. Nichols, Jett vs. Hunter, and more. Both Justin Cooper and Colt Nichols basically have to qualify for the Main Event and finish decently to win the championship after both of their respective rivals had massive crashes, taking them out of the championship title hunt. The track has also shown to be a tricky one during qualifying. While the riders were setting fast lap times, the track was sucker-punched by the dry weather, resulting in nasty track conditions and the water only made things slicker. So who do you have picked for tonight? Will it be an East Coast or West Coast rider to grab the overall win? Find out down below as we report all the action LIVE from Rice-Eccles Stadium.
