250 OVERALL QUALIFYING RESULTS | 2021 DAYTONA SUPERCROSS
Supercross is here in Daytona Beach, Florida for the ninth round in the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season. After taking a week off, many riders spent time honing in their Motocross skills at their special training facilities where they cut moto sections into the Supercross track. Some also just practiced outdoors in preparation for the gargantuan Moto/Supercross track. This also marks the second round the 250 West Coast class faces in the 2021 season and after the disaster that was Orlando 2, anything can be expected. The morning started off downpouring on Daytona International Speedway, but now the rain has *slightly* lightened up, making it impossible to say whether or not the weather will stay this way or if the clouds will wreak havoc. For now, find out who are the fastest riders in the 250 West division at the ninth round of Supercross.

In the second qualifying session Jordon Smith went down hard and made a trip to the Alpinestars medical rig to be looked at.

In Group B, someone we haven’t seen this season is Pierce Brown. The 45 GasGas rider jumped into the front of the pack for qualifying after taking a long hiatus from racing. One thing that was equally exciting to see was veteran rider Ryan Sipes up in the front as well. We’re convinced no one on this planet loves riding dirtbikes more than Ryan Sipes as Ryan continues to impress us each year with his crazy race schedule. The Group B riders set lap times around the 1 minute and 11-second mark. In Group A, Justin Cooper ran up front of the West Coast class followed by Seth Hammaker and the rest of the Pro Circuit Kawasaki boys. Justin currently ran the 2 seconds faster than the rest of the top five. Seth Hammaker and Garrett Marchbanks closed that to 1 second but still not fast enough to catch the 32. Jordon Smith ran in fourth place followed by Hunter Lawrence and Cameron McAdoo. Cameron McAdoo made it past Garrett Marchbanks for the third place position and eventually into second with one minute remaining. Justin Cooper held onto the fastest time in the 250s.
