Round 3 / Anaheim, CA / Angel Stadium : 450 & 250 West
Round Three of our 2023 Storm Lake Honda Supercross Fantasy League has landed. From SXLive.com, "GOAT Tipping: Eli Tomac took the checkers in San Diego to start the season with back-to-back victories. He becomes the 13th different rider to open a 450 Supercross season with two victories and the first since Ken Roczen in 2017. Only six times has a rider started the season with three or more victories and none since James Stewart in 2007. In 10/15 seasons a rider won the first two races they also won the title. Tomac only sits two wins behind Ricky Carmichael for third on the all-time win list and he moved beyond Jeremy McGrath in all-time AMA wins with his 90th."
"Webb Beats 2nd Rd. Blues: Cooper Webb came into San Diego averaging a 10th place finish in his six-second round starts. He came out with a runner-up finish, easily the best second round finish of his 450SX Class career. He sits 15th all-time in 450SX Class podiums with 47. Perhaps San Diego being called “Round 3” was all the help Webb needed."
"Barcia Moving Through Ranks: Justin Barcia’s third-place finish in San Diego moved him up in multiple all-time 450SX Class leaderboards: 135th start moves him into 14th clearing Ryan Dungey and Damon Huffman; 27th podium moves him into 30th tied with David Bailey; 63rd top-five finish moves him into 15th; 103rd top-10 finish is only two away from Ricky Carmichael in 15th."
"Notes: Ken Roczen tied Ryan Villopoto at 78 for 10th in all-time top-five finishes and Kyle Lewis in starts for 25th with 118; Josh Cartwright earned a career best 18th place in his third career 450SX Class start; Kyle Chisholm (17th) became only the eighth rider with 15 or more seasons with at least one start in 450SX Class history when he lined up in San Diego; Chisholm also clears Andrew Short for 12th on the all-time starts list with 143; Chase Sexton scored his 20th top-five finish in his first three seasons and has the second best top-five percentage (69%) of all active riders and eighth highest all-time."
Four 250 West riders. Four 450 riders. 3.5 million dollar budget. Live scoring. A chance to win a CRF110 from Storm Lake Honda & an autographed set of gear from The King himself, Jeremy McGrath. Good luck!
