450 OVERALL QUALIFYING RESULTS | 2021 SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS 1
The 450s continue their 16 race streak but have finally reached their final destination in the season, Salt Lake City, Utah, for the second to final round of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season. Last year, Rice-Eccles Stadium was the home to almost half of the rounds of the entire season, thankfully this season the riders had the opportunity to explore several other residencies where they competed in double and triple-headers. Salt Lake City is now the home for the final two rounds where we’ll Cooper Webb, Ken Roczen, and more battle it out for the championship. The results can be a mixed bag this weekend as several riders perform well at higher altitudes like Eli Tomac, and the track layout just screams Cooper Webb all over it. Either way, we’re hoping the racing will be close so it can come down to the final turn at the final round. So who do you think will be fastest around the traditional Supercross track? Find out down below as we report all the action LIVE from Rice-Eccles Stadium.

Aaron Plessinger grabbed the holeshot in the second qualifying session with Cooper Webb chasing his tail. Ken Roczen grabbed the fastest time in the second session but not as fast as the first session qualifying times. The lap times were showing to not be as fast as the first qualifying session as the majority of the riders hung 1 second behind their previous lap times. Chase Sexton had another tough crash this season hitting his head. Eli Tomac remained to be the fastest rider around the Salt Lake City Supercross 1 track.

The first qualifying session took off and it was Cooper Webb followed by Jason Anderson in the front of the premier class. Cooper Webb sat on top but not for long as Eli Tomac and Malcolm Stewart were quick to take away the position. Chase Sexton sat in fourth place with Ken Roczen in fifth. Chase Sexton then hopped to second place and Cooper Webb followed, moving to first place. Ken Roczen moved past his teammate, Chase Sexton, for second place and sat .2 of a second behind his rival. Joey Savatgy and Dylan Ferrandis set a few fast lap times moving to fifth and sixth. Eli Tomac then took back his first place position from Cooper Webb and the top 17 all sat within three seconds from each other.
