2024 Denver Supercross | Pre-Race News Break & Interviews



Today’s action at Empower Field at Mile High for the 2024 Denver Supercross takes us one race closer to the final checkered flag of the Monster Energy Supercross Championship. Ninety-eight riders are on the entry list, with 46 in the 250 West Region and 52 in the 450 Class.

Despite the deserved hype and excitement of the 43-point split between the top-four in the 450 Class, as well as last year’s lesson that anything can happen in racing, there is a chance the championship could be decided with a round still to go.

Jett Lawrence would have to win his eighth Main Event and have Cooper Webb finish outside the top-twelve to secure the number one plate tonight, but that’s just one of many scenarios that could play out as Tomac, Sexton, and Anderson continue to vie for wins, podiums, and top-five finishes.

The 250 West Region comes into its last standard Main Event with just two points between RJ Hampshire and Levi Kitchen. Both riders have a lot on the line after the chaos of the Nashville Showdown and know that every position they finish ahead of the other tonight can benefit them even more for next week’s finale in Salt Lake City.

A clear, dry week gave Dirt Wurx time to mix loads of sand into material used in a Monster Jam event here last week, build the layout, then water and till the surface with attachments on the heavy equipment. Riders told us that there is a noticeable difference to past visits here, especially the soft transitions between jumps, but expected it to mix up and improve through all of Saturday’s laps and the track crew’s additional work.

Current forecasts call for partly cloudy skies in the morning, afternoon sun, and a daytime high of 68. The temperature will drop to the low sixties when the sun goes over the mountain, and there’s no indication of rain on the radar.
