2023 Supercross Championship Final this Weekend!
Round 17 is this weekend in Salt Lake City Utah and we couldn't be more thrilled. This season has had its upsets as well as its surprises. In round 1 we saw Austin Forkner with Monster Energy/ Pro Circut/ Kawasaki Race Team go down hard and take him out pretty much for the rest of the season. While that was a hard pill to swallow we learned that the podium holder Eli Tomac had an injury over the weekend that took him out of the finals this weekend. Which would have been his 3rd 450 title championship win. In 2022 we saw Jason Anderson with Kawasaki take the win at Salt Lake which was an intense race. Speaking of Jason, due to his big crash in Nashville he is out of the finals in Salt Lake City.
All of these events together put the HRC rider Chase Sexton on his path to being crowned champion due to Tomacs untimely injury. This means our 450 champion is (unofficially) Chase Sexton. That must be a really intense feeling. You've won but you have to wait until after the race to be crowned. Honda has been on the up and up due to their powerhouse brotherly duo Jett and Hunter Lawerence. The brothers from down under have been dominating the 250 class all season long. With minimal errors from both of them they have positioned Honda to have an almost clean sweep of a season with Monster Energy Supercross 250 class.
Aaron Plessinger, with the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team, while being banged up from his previous race will continue to the championship race in Salt Lake. Currently holding the 7th position with 219 points in the season overall has had his ups and downs this season. With a best finish of 3rd this season grabbing the podium is no easy feat. You have to be persistent, relentless, and unboring. Constantly keeping your competition on your toes, being malluable for your team to advise and guide. It takes a special kind of person to do what these athletes do every day. Keeping their heads high during the lows, and serving humble pie at their highs, Aaron Plessinger has shown us he is a force to be reckened with in the Supercross World and will continue to do so through the coming seasons.
