Our first extended stay in Texas of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross Series is coming to an end, as this weekend’s 2021 Houston Three Supercross will be the final event of the season-opening set held at NRG Stadium. This season has already been exceptional, with multiple race winners in the 250 East Coast region and 450 Class and a rotation of podium finishers, so we’re very eager to see what happens at round three.

There have been some unfortunate injuries for riders in the field, including front-runners Chase Sexton, Enzo Lopes, Jess Pettis, and RJ Hampshire. Some have already announced that they are out for the weekend, if not a little longer, but others intend to block out the pain and be on the starting line.

Have a look at the entry lists for the 250 East Coast Region and 450 Class, what we know about the wounded riders, and the day’s race order.

22. Chad Reed | The two-time champion has retired from full-time professional racing.

23. Chase Sexton | Team Honda HRC has announced that Chase Sexton will sit out the 2021 Houston Three Supercross due to ongoing pain in his shoulder from Tuesday night’s crash. The rookie has undergone multiple exams and scans on his shoulder, all of which have come back free of fractures, but the injury has limited his range of motion and is still too fresh to line up. Sexton has returned home to Florida and will use the additional time to recover, with hopes of making it back for the trio of races that will happen in Indianapolis later this month.

34. Max Anstie | The Twisted Tea/HEP Motorsports/Suzuki rider had a hard crash during his last day of preseason practice. Anstie will miss the first rounds of the season with a back injury.
