SUPERCROSS RESULTS: HOUSTON 1–BARCIA? YES BARCIA!

The first of three Monster Energy Supercross rounds held in NRG Stadium outside of Houston went to Justin Barcia, marking the first outing for the Red Bull GasGas Pro supercross team and the first win. It also marked the third consecutive year that Barcia has won the opening event. Barcia’s win wasn’t without challenge, though. Honda’s Ken Roczen was hot on his rear wheel for most of the main event, but he just couldn’t seal the deal in the final laps. Many of the prerace favorites went down early, and some went down often.  Eli Tomac, Chase Sexton,  Jason Anderson, Cooper Webb and Zach Osborne all had to deal with collisions and turmoil.

As for the 250 race, it came down to a two-man show between Start Yamaha’s Christian Craig and Pro Circuit’s Austin Forkner. They each won their heats, but in the main event, it was Craig in control for virtually all of the race while Forkner had to come through traffic. In the final laps, he closed on Craig, but it wasn’t enough.
