In what could be described as a tumultuous Supercross season has finally come to an end. Eli Tomac had the points lead for most of the season. His lead was briefly threatened and taken away for a week by Cooper Webb. Then Webb suffered an injury in a season ending crash. Tomac looked safe and was on track to lock up the season championship. Then, in Denver at the second to last race of the season, Tomac sustained a heartbreaking injury that would end his season a week early. Chase Sexton was there to cash in and claim the title.
At the final race in Utah, Sexton had the holeshot. Ken Roczen was on the move chasing Sexton down but, a knee injury shut Roczen down. It was Sexton’s race to win. Honda was back on top. The manufacturer hasn’t earned a title in Supercross since 2003.
In the 250 class, Jett Lawrence came away with his final win in the class. Lawrence will move to the 450-class next season. And with that, the 2023 Supercross Season has come to an end.
