2024 San Diego Supercross | Qualifying Report & Results
Round three of the 2024 Monster Energy Supercross Championship is officially underway in San Diego, CA, as this morning’s timed qualifying sessions just wrapped up. Riders took to the slick course that fills Snapdragon Stadium just a few moments ago for their practice sessions. Racer’s were able to complete their first session of timed-qualifying before the rain began to fall, forcing the cancelation of the second and final session of riding. Just hundredths of a second split the front-runners in both the 250SX West and 450SX classes. Here’s a look at the fastest qualifiers and some information on how their qualifying sessions went in San Diego!
250 WEST REGION | REPORT & RESULTS
Jordon Smith looks to be carrying momentum in to San Diego from his victory last weekend, as the new red-plate holder topped the charts in the 250SX class. The Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha rider logged a 50.931 and was the only rider to dip below the 51s.
Jo Shimoda was next on the time sheets, as the Team Honda HRC rider laid down a 51.076 in the one and only timed session of qualifying. Hopefully the muddy conditions treat Jo better this weekend, as his race was cut short due to a mechanical failure last week.
Rj Hampshire rounded out the top-3 in the one and only session of timed qualifying. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna racer logged a 51.671, just a few thousandths faster than the next best time.
450 CLASS | REPORT & RESULTS
After an impressive ride in the mud last weekend, Ken Roczen seems to be comfortable and confident on his Suzuki RM-Z450. That said, Ken was the man to beat this morning in San Diego, as he topped the time sheets with a 52.027.
Eli Tomac was just behind on the time sheets, as he logged a 52.223 before the skis opened up and the rain began to fall.
After laying down a 52.307, 450 Championship points leader and red-plate holder Chase Sexton rounded out the top-3 in timed-qualifying.
