2022 Foxborough Supercross | Qualifying Report & Times
The Monster Energy Supercross series returns to Gillette Stadium for the first time since 2018, as round fifteen is well-underway in Foxborough. Riders spent Saturday morning learning the track that fills the home of the Patriots, and to no surprise, the lap times are incredibly close. The front-runners in the 250 East Coast and the 450 Class were split by just fractions of a second on the qualifying sheets, building the anticipation for tonight’s gate drops even more!
Here’s a look at the fastest lap times and results…
Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Austin Forkner came out swinging in both timed-qualifying sessions, as he found his name at the top of the board each time and bettered his time in the final practice to log a 50.649.
Jett Lawrence wasn’t too far off, as the Honda HRC rider backed up Forkner’s fastest lap with a 50.947 in the final qualifying session. Jett looks to wrap up the 250SX East Coast championship tonight, as the young rider just needs to finish 18th place or better in the main event.
Rj Hampshire was the next name on the leaderboards, as the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna rider logged a 51.067 in the final session of qualifying, just a few tenths off of the next fastest time.
Chase Sexton jumped to the top of the leaderboards on his final lap in the second session of qualifying, as the Honda HRC rider logged a blistering fast 49.956 and was the only rider to dip below 50-seconds.
Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jason Anderson held the fastest lap time for the majority of the final qualifying session, but his 50.316 was ultimately the second fastest lap time.
Malcolm Stewart was next on the time-sheets, as the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna rider logged a 50.519 with a few minutes to go in the second and final session of qualifying, rewarding him with third place.
