2023 Anaheim One Supercross | Kickstart News and Photo Gallery

What a barn burner the 2023 Anaheim One Supercross season kickoff was! Though the weather in the days preceding the event was certainly damp, that didn’t keep thousands of Supercross fans from filling Angel Stadium of Anaheim to the brim for a sold-out opener. The Dirt Wurx crew did an admirable job of first protecting the A1 track from the rain as best they could, then whipping the track surface into a very tricky and technical course that kept riders on their toes, yet still allowed for great racing action. 

Honda HRC’s Jett Lawrence got off to a slow start but found his usual speedy pace by main event time, then raced off with what will undoubtedly be the first of many victories in his bid to earn the Western Regional 250 Supercross Championship and complete his collection of 250-class titles. In the 450 division, defending champ Eli Tomac finally earned the first season opener win of his 450 career, coming back from a mid-race crash to chalk up one of the most impressive victories of his career.

As always, there is much more to the story that was Anaheim One than results alone can tell. Welcome to the first Kickstart installment of 2023. This is what we saw. heard, and learned, throughout the event that was A1.
