It was an intense night of Supercross racing in Detroit. Chase Sexton was crowned the winner after an all-out track battle. When the gate dropped in the 450 main event, Aaron Plessinger had the holeshot. Adam Cianciarulo moved in right away for the lead with Cooper Webb in third and Eli Tomac fourth. Plessinger reclaimed the lead and the battle was on.
All of the front runners began trading positions on the track back and forth. Plessinger continued to hold the lead. Sexton on the move, began picking off riders until Plessinger made a critical mistake. On the second to the last lap, Plessinger crashed hard and flew off the bike. Sexton moved in for the win, his second of the season. Sexton was assessed a 7-point penalty post-race for a red-cross flag infraction after the race. The penalty will affect his championship chase.
Over in the Eastern 250 Regional class, Haiden Deegan had the holeshot. Hunter Lawrence wasted no time grabbing the lead. Nate Thrasher attempted to chase down Lawrence but to no avail. Lawrence went on to win another race.
