We apoligize, we had some technical issues were fixing this morning and will have the scores updated ASAP. The AMA also still hasnt released the offical 450 results due to some riders jumping on the Red Cross flag during the 450 main while Sexton was down. So we wait. Until then, catch up on all the action with RacerX.

What a crazy night. Each Monster Energy Supercross season begins with a stacked field of talent and unpredictable action, and the second round of the 2021 season stirred those ingredients together to create a memorable night of racing. There are so many stories that we don’t even know where to start!
So, we can start with the end. It seems tame, as defending Monster Energy Supercross Champion Eli Tomac finished the race with the victory, an outstanding bounce back after his lackluster crash-induced 13th at the season opener on Saturday. However, victory by the champion belies how wild this night was. Briefly, it looked like the youth was about to run wild, as Chase Sexton holeshot the race with Adam Cianciarulo right behind him. The kids were rolling, as Cianciarulo was the fastest qualifier and Sexton won his heat race, and they quickly left Tomac behind in the early laps. Then it came undone in a tricky sand turn, as first Cianciarulo and then Sexton crashed in the same spot. Sexton’s crashed was a wild one and he hit the ground hard, luckily able to walk off under his own power, but taking a 22nd place finish. Cianciarulo lost tons of spots and finished the race in 12th.
“All I know is that the opening laps were crazy fast,” said Tomac. “Chase was going really fast and Adam was going really fast. I was like “This is going to be insane for 29 laps.” Then they made mistakes.”
