Racing is finally back in Camping World Stadium for the eighth round of the 2021 Supercross season but the first round for the West Coast 250 class. We’re extremely eager to see who will place on top of the podium amongst the West Coast class as already, the field is stacked. How do we know the 250 field is stacked? Because unlike the East Coast class, there is an actual Group C that had to qualify for the Heat Races, making the odds of racing the night show even more difficult. For the second round, we are seeing extremely different track conditions compared to the weekend prior. The track is dry, brittle, and slick meaning that the riders will have to be more cautious when overcoming the obstacles. In the 250 class, we’ve already seen some breakout performances from several 250 veteran riders as well as some exceptional performances from some of the rookies during qualifying. Riders like Justin Cooper and Jeremy Martin dominated qualifying while rookie Seth Hamakker who qualified in Group B actually snagged the second-fastest lap time of the day. So who are you placing your bets on for the 250 West Coast class? Find out down below as we report LIVE from Orlando, Florida for the West Coast’s first Supercross race.

The 250 West class is shaping up to be very exciting.

Jace Owen and Justin Cooper charged to the front with Cameron McAdoo in the mix. Jeremy Martin, Stilez Roberston and a few others got in a first turn pileup leaving a red flag to waved. Another crash at the end of the whoops involving Alex Martin ended with an Alpinestars Medical member getting hit by Cameron McAdoo. In the first turn pileup, Jeremy Martin failed to make the double everyone else was making and Stilez ended up landing on the number 6. Both of the Martin brothers were out of the race and the 250 Main was restarted. Justin Cooper grabbed the holeshot again with Jordon Smith and Jalek Swoll chasing behind. Jalek Swoll lost a massive amount of time through the whoops allowing Cameron McAdoo to close the gap on the Factory Husqvarna rider. A turn later, Cameron would be successful on the pass and gain the fourth place position. The crashes weren’t over as Jordon Smith would crash into the face of the jump following the whoops. Seth Hammaker went down right before the finish and now sat in ninth. Cameron McAdoo now sat in second with Jalek Swoll in third and Marchbanks in fourth. Mitchell Harrison went over the bars on one of the berms. Chris Blose sat in fifth and Hunter Lawrence battled for his spot in the race. Justin Cooper’s lead grew to over five seconds on the Pro Circuit rider, Cameron McAdoo. Hunter Lawrence and Chris Blose drag raced through the whoops but Hunter Lawrence would get to the turn after the whoops first and sit in fifth. Seth Hammaker made the pass on Jace Owen and now sat in seventh with seven minutes remaining in the race. Marchbanks moved into the third-place position with three minutes remaining. Jarrett Frye went down and it appeared that the cable for the microphones down on the floor got caught up in his wheel. Justin Cooper’s smooth-riding would prevail for the Star Yamaha rider as he would win the first Main Event of the West Coast season.

Justin Cooper walked into the second heat race with the fastest qualifying time. 

The second heat took off and Hunter Lawrence grabbed the holeshot with Nate Thrasher going down hard in the first turn. Jeremy Martin soon made the pass on the 41 and already started forming a lead on the rest of the field. In third sat Mitchell Harrison and Stilez Robertson in fourth. Hunter Lawrence almost went down two laps in but managed to save it. The whoops proved to be fairly difficult for the West Coast riders as Justin Cooper got caught up in the obstacle. In second place, there was a four-way battle for the second position between Stilez Robertson, Hunter Lawrence, Justin Cooper, and Michell Harrison. Despite falling behind in the whoops, Justin Cooper made his way back up to third. Jeremy Martin’s lead grew even larger to five seconds in front of the battle for second. Justin Cooper made a clean pass on Lawrence and set his eyes on his teammate but it was too late, for his teammate won the second heat.

Seth Hammaker may have started in the Group B class when qualifying but set the second fastest qualifying time of the day for the 250s. 

The first heat of the 2021 season took off for the West Coast riders and 250 rookie Seth Hammaker grabbed the holeshot followed by his teammates Cameron McAdoo and Jordon Smith. Three matching riders on three Pro Circuit Kawasakis took the lead. Chris Blose from AJE Motorsports onboard the GasGas grabbed fourth place followed by Jace Owen. Seth’s lead grew to a second in the first heat but made a mistake as Cameron McAdoo went past and grabbed the lead. With one minute remaining, a battle for the transfer position commences between Carson Mumford, Jarrett Frye, and Dilan Schwartz. Carson Mumford went down as Dilan Schwartz made a close pass on the slippery track. Chris Blose made the pass for third as Jordon Smith made an off-track excursion, falling back to fifth. Cameron McAdoo won the first heat race and rookie Seth Hammaker landed in a very impressive second place.

Coty Schock lead the LCQ with Nate Thrasher on his bumper. Nate Thrasher started to close the gap on the FXR/Chaparral Honda rider. In fourth place, a battle between Dilan Schwartz and Ty Masterpool brewed. However, Soubeyras joined the fight for the transfer position as Ty refused to let the two make the pass. Schwartz and Soubeyras made the pass on Ty Masterpool with one minute remaining. Dilan attempted to make the pass on Soubeyras but would make a mistake letting Jordan Bailey make the pass. The two riders in front of Dilan would fumble in the second to last turn letting the Suzuki rider make his way into the Main Event.
