The 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Championship is nearing its end, as the series finale is well underway in Salt Lake City, Utah. The fastest riders in the world spent Saturday morning learning the track that fills the center of Rice-Eccles Stadium, and to no surprise, the lap times are incredibly close. Just fractions of a second split the front-runners in the 250SX classes 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…

250SX West

Jett Lawrence continued his dominance in Salt Lake City, as he turned in the fastest laps in the 250SX West timed-qualifying sessions. The division champion logged a 47.052 late in the final session to claim the top spot on the time sheets. 

Rj Hampshire was flowing all morning in Utah and set some of the fastest times in his class. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna rider logged a 47.340 in the final session of qualifying to secure second place on the leaderboards. 

Levi Kitchen was the next name on the west coast leaderboard. The Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha racer logged a 47.751 in the final session of practice.

250SX East

Much like the rest of his season, Hunter Lawrence was the man to beat in the 250SX East timed-qualifying. The 2023 division champion turned in a 46.572 late in the final session to jump into the lead. 

Jordon Smith was on it all morning in Salt Lake City, as the Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha rider logged some of the fastest laps in the class. Though, Jordon’s 46.593 was just off of Hunter’s best time, placing him in second place on the time sheets. 

Jo Shimoda was the next name on the 250SX East time sheets. The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider logged a 47.123 late in the final session to jump Jeremy Martin and Deegan on the leaderboard. 


After laying down a 46.751, Chase Sexton topped the charts in 450 timed-qualifying. The Team Honda HRC rider is set to collect his first career 450SX championship this evening and started the day off right. 

Ken Roczen was just behind in both sessions of riding and logged a 46.958 in the final session of timed-qualifying to claim second place on the leaderboards.  

Justin Hill continued to turn heads, as he laid down a 47.403 in the first timed-qualifying session and landed in third place on the leaderboards.
