450 start 2024 San Diego Supercross Heats-8702


450 racing is on the track in San Diego, where track conditions are tough and rutted this evening. Ken Roczen was fastest in qualifying but not by much above the rest of the field such as Jett Lawrence, Chase Sexton and Eli Tomac. Though more dry than last weekend the track is still deep and wet which will play a pivotal role in the race results this evening. The stage is set and will be interesting to see who can perform the best throughout the evening. Tune in below to see the full race report:



AARON PLESSINGER 2024 San Diego Supercross Heats-4946Aaron Plessinger wins his first 450SX Main Event of his career!

Justin Cooper grabbed the holeshot but it was Ken Roczen and Justin Barcia who jumped into first and second right away. Chase Sexton had a bad start and he tangled with Malcolm Stewart and crashed in the first straight away rhythm lane. Jett and Hunter Lawrence were buried in the pack early, then Eli Tomac and Christian Craig went down on lap two, in the same spot as Sexton and Stewart. Justin Barcia pressed Roczen for the lead early, but then he made a mistake and Aaron Plessinger got into second. Jett Lawrence was 7th and Chase Sexton 16th after the first five minutes of the race. Then, with 13 minutes left on the clock, Ken Roczen went down, allowing Aaron Plessinger to take the lead. Cooper Webb caught and passed Justin Barcia and he pressured Aaron for the lead, but he was never close enough to force Aaron into a mistake. Then, Aaron lapped Eli Tomac and Chase Sexton, but when he lapped Sexton, Chase slowed up Cooper and caused him to lose a lot of time. It didn’t look intentional, but it also didn’t look pretty and it basically ended Webb’s chances of getting close to Plessinger.

Aaron Plessinger Ken Roczen 2024 San Diego Supercross Heats-4807Aaron Plessinger wins 450 Heat 2 with Ken Roczen placing second.

The track is treacherous tonight in San Diego after hours of pouring rain this evening. Ken Roczen and Aaron Plessinger ran up front early in the second 450 Heat and they traded the lead multiple times before Aaron Plessinger finally asserted his dominance out front and pulled away from the number 94. The track is getting better with time, but it’s still ultra slick inside the SnapDragon stadium. Chase Sexton and Hunter Lawrence were both last and second to last around the first turn. Both Hunter and Chase fought hard to make it into transfer positions and Freddie Noren held on strong to take the last transfer position.
