The 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Series has landed in Detroit, as round ten of the tour is well underway. The fastest riders in the world spent Saturday afternoon learning the technical track that fills the center of Ford Field, and to no surprise, the lap times are incredibly close. Just fractions of a second split the front-runners in the 250 East Coast and 450 Class on the qualifying sheets, which ratcheted up the anticipation for tonight’s racing even more.
Here’s a look at the fastest lap times and results…
Yet again, Hunter Lawrence topped the charts in 250SX timed-qualifying. The current East region red-plate holder logged an impressive 51.999 and was the only rider to dip into the 51-second range.
Jordon Smith was just behind, as the veteran clocked a 52.261 late in the final session of timed-qualifying to land his Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha YZ250F in second place overall.
Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha teammate Nate Thrasher was next on the time sheets. Although he had a tough fall in the whoops during the first session of riding, Thrasher logged a 52.583 in the final session and was looking comfortable.
As expected, Chase Sexton came out firing in Detroit and logged the fastest lap time of the timed-qualifying sessions. The Team Honda HRC racer topped the charts again with a blistering fast 51.439, which he clocked on the final lap of the session.
Jason Anderson was just behind, as the Monster Energy Kawasaki racer logged an impressive 51.491 and held the top spot until Sexton bettered his time by just a few hundredths.
Ken Roczen seemed to be carrying momentum from last week’s victory into Detroit, as he logged the third fastest lap time. Roczen’s 51.643 was logged late in the final session of timed-qualifying.
