The 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Series has officially gone East, as the fourth race of the schedule is underway inside the home of the Houston Texans. The fastest riders in the world spent Saturday afternoon learning the track that fills the floor of NRG Stadium, 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 triple crown event even more. 

Here’s a look at the fastest lap times and results…

Max Anstie turned some heads in the early moments of the 250 East Coast Region kickoff, as he topped the charts in both timed-qualifying sessions. The Firepower Honda rider logged a blistering fast 52.128 in the final session of qualifying, which was a few tenths faster than his already fastest time from the first session. 

Nate Thrasher snuck in a heater on the final lap in the last session of timed-qualifying, which jumped his name into second place on the time sheets. Nate’s 52.438, just a few hundredths faster than his teammate’s best lap, landed him towards the top in the 250SX qualifying times. 

Jordon Smith bettered his time in the final session of qualifying and logged a 52.443, which landed him in third place on the time sheets. The 250SX class veteran is looking good on his new Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha ride. 

Texas native Larry Reyes went down hard in the whoops and brought out the red flag in the second 250SX Group B qualifying session. Get well soon, Jr!

Chase Sexton seems to be carrying his momentum from last weekend’s race into Houston, as the Team Honda HRC rider topped the charts in both sessions of 450SX timed-qualifying. Sexton’s fastest lap times were substantially faster than the rest of the field, as his 50.320 logged in the final session was over a second faster than the next best time.

Dylan Ferrandis was the next name on the time sheets, as his 51.415 landed him in second place in the 450SX timed qualifying. The Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha rider improved on his lap time and cut off over half-a-second in the final session of qualifying. 

Current 450SX Championship points leader Eli Tomac landed in third place in timed-qualifying, after logging a 51.431 in the final session of riding.
