250 Heat One

As the first race of the night left the gate, Alves was off to the early lead with Jarrett Frye and Pierce Brown just behind. Jordon Smith looked inside of Brown, but Pierce responded by passing Frye for second place and then going for the lead. A corner later, Brown passed into the lead after diving inside after the finish. Jordon Smith then passed both Alves and Frye to take over second place. Meanwhile, Jett Lawrence passed into eighth place after a bad start.

Enzo Lopes made the pass on Frye for third place with a few minutes on the clock. With three laps to go, Jett had reeled in and made the pass on Lopes for third place. Further back in the pack, Cullin Park was making moves, as he passed into sixth place and was pressuring for a top-5. On the final lap, Jett Lawrence passed Jordon Smith for second place. Pierce Brown crossed the checkered flag to take his third heat race win of the season. 

250 Heat Two

The second 250 Heat was off and Kyle Chisholm was off to the early lead, but Rj Hampshire carried momentum through the first turn but then got hit from behind and went down with a large majority of the field. Hampshire, Forkner, Oldenburg, Drake, and more were down in the first section while Chisholm and Varize led the field. Hampshire went down again in the whoops, as the front of his Husqvarna was twisted-up from the first crash. Rj then made a quick stop in the pits to try and straighten-out the bike before returning to the track.

Austin Forkner recovered quickly and had already passed into fifth place with 3 minutes on the clock. Kyle Chisholm went down while leading and handed the race lead over to Joshua Varize. With four laps to go, Forkner made the pass on Jace Owen for third place. Chisholm caught back up to the rear tire of Varize with one lap to go and the battle for the lead was on. Kyle dove inside of Joshua, but wasn’t able to execute the pass. Forkner then caught up to Kyle and entered the battle for the lead. As Chisholm ripped past Varize through the whoops, Austin Forkner landed on the left side of Joshua Varize’s handlebars over the triple after, sending both of them to the ground hard. After laying on the ground for a few moments, visibly in pain, both Forkner and Varize remounted and crossed the finish line still in transfer positions.

Kyle Chisholm took the dramatic heat race victory, but crossed the finish line nursing his wrist after his crash early in the race. Mitchell Oldenburg passed into fourth place after going down in the first turn incident, avoiding the LCQ. However, Rj Hampshire was only able to climb up into 12th place, sending him to the LCQ. 

250 LCQ

The 250 Last Chance Qualifier was off and Rj Hampshire was off to the early lead after jumping to the inside of Derek Drake. Ty Freehill went down hard at the end of the first rhythm lane, bunching the rest of the field up. Jack Chambers ran in third place with Cartwright trailing. Rj Hampshire laid down consistent lap times and raced his way to a comfortable lead on Drake, who still held down second place. Derek Drake was hanging with Hampshire, as he sat just a few seconds behind. Hampshire took the win in the 250 LCQ and moved on to the 250SX Main Event after a rough heat race. 

250 Main Event

The gate was down and the 250 Main Event in Foxborough was off, as Cullin Park was off to the early lead with Pierce Brown just behind. Jordon Smith shuffled into third place with Varize trailing. Pierce Brown jumped past Cullin Park and into the race lead on the second lap, as Jett Lawrence worked his way into the top-10 after a bad start. Jordon Smith went down while running in third and held up Joshua Varize, dropping the pair to 10th and 21st. Rj Hampshire used Smith’s mistake to his advantage and took over third place, but Austin Forkner was in pursuit. A few laps later, Hampshire passed Cullin Park and took over second place. Meanwhile, Jett Lawrence had passed into fifth place after getting around Chisholm. 

Despite his great start, Park began to get swallowed up by the top-runners of the series, as both Forkner and Lawrence shuffled him back to fifth place. Jett began pressuring Forkner for third place, but Austin seemed to respond as he stretched his lead on the points-leader back out. Pierce Brown continued to lead, but Rj Hampshire was reeling-in the TLD GasGas rider ever so slightly. While Hampshire worked on Brown, Lawrence continued to challenge Forkner. Jett and Austin were setting the fastest laps on the track as they battled over third place, ultimately reeling in Hampshire and Brown. Jett cut down on Forkner after the whoops to take over third place momentarily, but Austin charged to the inside in the corner after to retake third. Rj Hampshire and Brown collided mid-air, sending Rj to the ground and dropping him back to fourth place. 

Much like his heat race, Rj was back in the pits for a few moments with a twisted bike. Mitchell Oldenburg passed Kyle Chisholm and the pair both advanced after Rj went into the pits. Up front, Forkner was now pressuring Pierce Brown for the lead. Pierce made a few mistakes and allowed Austin Forkner to rocket by and take the lead with just four laps to go. Jett Lawrence was now pressuring Brown and made the pass for second place in the whoops. On the final lap, Jett Lawrence had pulled up to Forkner’s rear wheel but crossed the finish line just behind Austin Forkner to take second place and the 2022 250SX East Coast championship. While Jett celebrated his first career Supercross championship, Austin Forkner celebrated his race win in Foxborough. 

450 Heat One

The first 450 race of the night was off and Cooper Webb was off to the early lead with Marvin Musquin just behind. Jason Anderson passed into third place in the second corner, as Musquin passed Webb in the rhythm section following to take the lead. Webb made another mistake in the same rhythm lane on the second lap and allowed Anderson to make the pass momentarily, before charging back to the inside in the next corner. A few positions behind, Justin Brayton made the pass on Clason for fifth place. Back up front, Jason Anderson again made the pass on Cooper Webb, but this time secured the second place position. 

A lap later, Anderson was then pressuring Musquin for the lead. Jason took Marvin wide before the triple and took the lead but then washed the front-end and went down, dropping back to second place. Back in the pack, Jeremy Hand went down hard after casing the quad over the table and got his hand stuck between his rear wheel and swingarm. Cooper Webb lost his silencer with a few laps to go and dropped his pace a-bit, but held onto third place. Marvin Musquin crossed the checkered flag to take the heat race win ahead of Jason Anderson. 

450 Heat Two

As the second 450 Heat left the gate, Chase Sexton took to the early lead after a great start. Malcolm Stewart and Eli Tomac rounded the first turn in second and third place. Eli made a quick pass on Stewart to secure second place in the first lap. As the race reached it’s half-way mark, the top five remained the same; Sexton, Tomac, Stewart, Barcia and Friese. Back in the pack, Justin Starling was challenging Ryan Breece for sixth place and made the pass stick after a better run through the whoops. The top-3 broke away from Justin Barcia, who ran in fourth, as they sat nearly 10-seconds above Barcia. Chase Sexton crossed the finish line to take another heat race win in 2022. 

450 LCQ

Scott Meshey was off to the early lead after grabbing the holeshot, but Alex Martin and Kevin Moranz were just behind. Both Alex and Kevin made quick passes on Meshey before the end of the first lap to take over first and second place. Deven Raper made a mistake while holding down the final transfer position, dropping him back to sixth and giving Pauli the position. Lane was challenging Pauli, who responded by passing Meshey for third place. Tristan Lane was now pressuring Meshey for the final transfer position. Meshey then dove inside of Pauli before the finish line to retake third place. Tristan Lane cut down inside of Pauli before the whoops to secure the final transfer position with two laps to go. Lane then passed Meshey on the final lap. Alex Martin took the win in the 450 LCQ. 

450 Main Event

The 450 Main Event was off and Cooper Webb was off to the early lead with Eli Tomac and Jason Anderson trailing. Anderson made a mistake in the second rhythm lane, allowing Tomac to secure second place. Eli ripped through the whoops and Tomac dove inside of Webb to make the pass momentarily, however, Webb charged inside in the next corner to hold onto the lead. A few corners later, Eli Tomac stalled the bike as Anderson passed for second place. Eli got his machine back running but not until dropping back to sixth place. Jason Anderson was now working on Cooper Webb for the lead.

Chase Sexton held down third place and trailed the battle for the lead, as Anderson continued to show Webb a wheel in the tight corners. Anderson pulled alongside Webb in the whoops and jumped inside and to the race lead. A few corners later, Cooper Webb dove inside and showed Anderson a wheel but was unable to repass for the lead. Chase Sexton then passed Webb after a better run through the whoops and picked up second place. Marvin Musquin also made the pass on Webb, just before Eli Tomac blitzed by Cooper. 

Jason Anderson continued to lead Sexton, who held a second lead on Musquin. Eli Tomac looked to charge towards the front, but had to deal with lappers, which allowed Malcolm Stewart to close in and then pass Tomac for fourth place. Justin Barcia scrubbed to the inside of Cooper Webb to make the pass for sixth place. While leading, Jason Anderson made a mistake that caused him to roll a double, allowing Sexton to close-in. Though, Anderson was able to stretch his lead back out to over a second.

Justin Barcia made the pass on Eli Tomac, but then went down before the finish line a few laps later and would reset behind Eli. Barcia would ultimately repass Tomac and with two laps to go, Cooper Webb also made the pass on Eli. Jason Anderson crossed the checkered flag first to take another win in 2022.
