Supercross Round Three: San Diego

Jan 242022

Monster Energy Sweeps 450 Class Podium - Chase Sexton Wins and Tomac Takes over the Championship Points Lead



Chase Sexton of Team Honda HRC powered his career-first Monster Energy AMA Supercross 450SX Class win in front of the cheering fans inside Petco Park in downtown San Diego. Runner-up in San Diego fell to Monster Energy Yamaha racer Eli Tomac, while third place was earned by teammate Dylan Ferrandis.


Chase Sexton was the fifth different San Diego winner in the last five races at the venue. Three rounds into the 2022 season only fourteen points separate the top ten riders, making 2022 the closest title chase in the sport's history at this point in the series.


In the Western Regional 250SX Class at San Diego, championship leader Christian Craig of the Monster Energy/ Yamaha Star Racing team was caught up in a first turn crash at the start of the main event. Starting dead last and with the visor ripped from his helmet, Craig mounted a remarkable comeback, racing his way up to third at the finish of the race.
