The Rice Eccles stadium plays host to round sixteen of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship, with the points between Webb and Roczen sitting at sixteen, Roczen might have a chance to claw back the gap.
The return of the Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha’s Christian Craig to the 250 Class proved testing for HRC’s Jett Lawrence, with them finishing P1 and P3. Even though Craig had a huge off on one of the doubles, he still finished up on the top spot followed by Michael Mosiman and Jett Lawrence. Pro Circuit Kawasaki rider Jo Shimoda also returned to the start gate this weekend, putting in a solid 5th in Quali overall.
