In the first-ever Monster Energy AMA Supercross race to take place on a Wednesday night, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb emerged victorious for the second time this season. The weekday race was the second of seven to be held at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City over the next two and a half weeks. At the start of the main event, Webb rocketed out of the gate and put his 450 SX-F Factory Edition in second place around the first corner. From there, he kept race leader Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Zach Osborne in sight for 20 laps before he made the pass and led the remaining seven laps to take the win—his first since the San Diego round back in February.

“It was a great night overall, but it was a tough race,” Webb said. “The track conditions were definitely tricky and you had to be patient out there. The whoops were tough. I just committed to my lines from the beginning and it played out pretty well. It was a great night to get a win. These are not easily regained, especially with the top guys up here tonight. I want to soak it in, but we’ve got five more rounds to go.”

Eli Tomac didn’t get off to the greatest of starts, rounding the first corner in ninth. Nevertheless, the Monster Energy Kawasaki rider went to work and charged through the field, making his way up to second place with approximately two and half minutes left on the clock in the 20-minute plus one lap race. Tomac closed within less than a second of Webb in the closing laps, but overjumped a rhythm section, which set him back slightly. The Colorado native brought it home to clinch the runner-up spot for the evening, enabling him to extend his point lead over championship rival Ken Roczen.

“I was fighting with all I could tonight,” Tomac said. “I got pushed back off the start and began making my way toward the front after that. I got close with two laps to go, but then I made a little mistake in the rhythm section so I couldn’t quite make it happen, but overall it was a good night for us.”

That was a great battle and a lot of fun. The track had some great character and it was just a great day for the Monster Energy Kawasaki team.

Zach Osborne achieved his first podium finish of the season with his third place result. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider captured the holeshot in the feature race and led 20 laps before being passed by Webb and Tomac. Regardless, the performance was undoubtedly one of his best in the 450SX class.

“My main event ride was really good,” Osborne said. “I maybe let a win slip away, but in the end it’s a good building block. I felt good all day. The team vibe was unreal and we had a really good, fun time today. To get all three of the bikes inside the top six was incredible. I’m really proud of what I accomplished and what the team accomplished tonight.”

Jason Anderson captured his third consecutive fourth place finish, the first dating back to the Daytona race in early March before the COVID-19 pandemic halted the series. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider worked his way into third early on and remained there for the first half of the race before being passed by Tomac, which dropped him to fourth—a position he held for the latter portion of the 27-lap main event.

“My day was not bad,” Anderson said. “I ended up second in practice and in the heat race I had a decent little battle and ended up third. In the main event, I got a good start and got tangled in the first corner. I came up to third for a minute and then fell back to fourth and just kind of rode around in fourth.”

After selecting the far inside gate for the main event, Ken Roczen got pinched off on the start and completed the first lap in eighth place. The Team Honda HRC rider ran as high as fourth early on, but by the race’s halfway point had fallen back to fifth where he would ultimately finish.

“I’m feeling good on the bike and had a good heat race, but obviously I’m having issues that prevent me from keeping it going,” Roczen explained. “I’m trying to figure it out and do my best to come back stronger. This thing isn’t over yet, but obviously fifth place is not where we want to be. The main goal is to try to be better, and especially get a better start; I took a chance going to the very inside on the start gate and that didn’t work out. I’m going to rest and recover, and I look forward to trying our best in the next race.”

I knew it was just going to take a few extra days to get everything back lined up after the last couple of rounds and everything that’s been going on with my body. We won our heat race, which was really stacked; I got a holeshot there and it was great. I really felt good with the bike; we’ve been tweaking it a little bit here and there, and I was really gelling with it nicely tonight. I kind of liked the track.
