The Monster Energy Supercross Series is back in Colorado, as round sixteen of the tour is well underway. The fastest riders in the world spent Saturday morning learning the unique track that fills the center of Empower Field, and to no surprise, the lap times are incredibly close. Just fractions of a second split the front-runners in the 250SX West division and 450 Class on the qualifying sheets, which ratcheted up the anticipation for tonight’s event even more.
Here’s a look at the fastest lap times and results…
Late in the final session of qualifying, current 250SX West championship points-leader Jett Lawrence logged a blistering fast 43.893, nearly a full second faster than the next best time. With that lap time, The Team Honda HRC racer jumped to the top of the leaderboards.
Rj Hampshire logged his fastest lap time on the final lap of the final session of timed-qualifying. After laying down a 44.730, the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna racer finished second in 250SX timed-qualifying.
Enzo Lopes continued to turn heads aboard his ClubMX/FXR/MucOff/Yamaha machine. The privateer racer came out swinging in timed-qualifying and logged the fastest lap time in the first session of riding. With a 44.860, Enzo ultimately landed in third place overall in 250SX qualifying.
As expected, Chase Sexton was the guy to beat in Denver 450SX timed-qualifying, as the Team Honda HRC rider logged the fastest lap time in each session of riding. Ultimately, Sexton’s 43.968 was titled the fastest lap time in the class.
After logging a late fast lap in the final session of 450SX timed-qualifying, Ken Roczen jumped to second place on the leaderboards. Ken’s 44.378 was just a few hundredths off of Sexton’s best lap.
