450 OVERALL QUALIFYING RESULTS | 2021 DAYTONA SUPERCROSS
The 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season lands in Daytona International Speedway for the ninth round in the series. Heading into the weekend, the weather was nearly perfect the day before for Press Day. The morning of race day, not so much. Similar to Orlando, the track was plagued with rain, except the racecourse has yet to see the light of the sun. It is difficult to say whether or not the rain will make a return for the racing but for now, the teams prepped the bikes for the worst of conditions.

Right at the beginning of qualifying, Justin Barcia slid out in the grass and proceeded to make his way to the mechanics to get a quick alignment on the front end. Marvin Musquin set the fastest lap time but didn’t hold onto it for long until Eli Tomac snuck past. Malcolm Stweart ran in third place followed by Justin Bogle and Dylan Ferrandis. The rain drizzled but one thing the riders weren’t prepared for was a huge gust of wind that approached the stadium. Ken Roczen moved up into third place just passing Malcolm Stewart. From first to 20th, the pack was separated by six seconds. The drizzle became heavier and the riders proceeded to burn through their tear-offs. Riders headed into the mechanic’s area to get fresh sets of goggles. Eli Tomac held onto the fastest lap time followed by Dylan Ferrandis and Marvin Musquin.
