The 2023 Seattle Supercross was another thrilling round in the Monster Energy Supercross Championship. All of the things we’ve come to expect of the Pacific Northwest, like the region’s loose and soft dirt to its cool and rainy climate, came together inside Lumen Field and challenged riders in the 250 West Coast Region and 450 Class through the night’s Heat Races, LCQs, and Main Events.
