Round twelve of the 2024 Monster Energy Supercross Championship is officially underway in St. Louis, Missouri, as this morning’s timed qualifying sessions just wrapped up. The fastest riders in the world took to the well-liked, technical course just a few moments ago for their timed-qualifying sessions. 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 St. Louis!

250 Class Qualifying

After settling for second place last weekend, in Seattle, Rj Hampshire looked to be determined to snag the win in St. Louis. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider was the man to beat in the 250SX timed-qualifying sessions, as he logged a blistering fast 55.956.

Last weekend’s winner and current 250SX West championship points leader Levi Kitchen was just behind in timed-qualifying. The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider laid down a 56.660 in the final session of qualifying to land in second place on the time sheets. 

MotoConcepts Honda’s Carson Mumford was feeling it in St. Louis, as the privateer was toward the top of the leaderboard all morning long. After logging a 56.978 in the final session of qualifying, Carson ultimately landed in third place on the time sheets. 

Michael Mosiman went down hard in the first session of timed qualifying, however he remounted later in the session and ultimately logged the sixth best lap time.

250 LCQ

Max Sanford snagged the holeshot after a great start, while Talon Hawkins settled into second place, behind him. A few laps later, Talon Hawkins looked inside and made the pass on Sanford for the race lead. With three laps to go, Max Sanford made a mistake that the camera crew could not spot, where he dropped well outside of a transfer position. Talon Hawkins took the LCQ win, ahead of Stapleton, Varize, and Jorgensen. 

450 Class Qualifying

Yet again, Team Honda HRC’s Jett Lawrence was the man to beat in 450SX timed-qualifying. The current 450SX Championship points leader turned in the fastest lap of the morning just two laps before the checkered flag flew in the final session of practice. Jett’s 54.837 knocked Justin Cooper’s time back to second place. 

Justin Cooper is back to his fast qualifying ways, as he was the man to beat for a majority of the final session of 450SX timed qualifying. The Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha rider laid down a 55.007 to ultimately land the second best lap time of the morning. 

After last weekend’s win in Seattle, Cooper Webb looked to be carrying the momentum into St. Louis, as he was quick throughout the morning. The Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha rider logged a 55.189 in the final session of practice to land in third place on the time sheets. 

450 LCQ

Colt Nichols cut inside of Vince Friese on the first corner to take the early race lead. Grant Harlan and Hunter Schlosser got together after the second corner, which ended their hopes of transferring into the night show. Cade Clason trailed Friese in third place, as Jerry Robin and Jeremy Hand duked it out behind them for the final transfer position. 

With three laps to go, Vince Friese stalled his machine and allowed the riders behind him to close-in. Jeremy Hand passed Vince for third place, but Vince remained in fourth. Colt Nichols took the LCQ win and took Clason, Hand, and Friese with him to the Triple Crown main events.
