NASHVILLE SUPERCROSS 450 RESULTS: LIVE QUALIFYING

The first-ever Supercross from Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee comes at a pivotal moment in the 2019 AMA Supercross Championship. Cooper Webb arrives with a 17-point lead in the standings after 13 rounds of racing. Now, it’s no longer about being the fastest. It’s more important to deal with the pressure and act like a champion. The man creating the pressure is his Red Bull KTM teammate Marvin Musquin. In Houston, the two acted like anything but teammates. Cooper later admitted to being frustrated by Musquin’s aggressive riding. In the end, it was Musquin who cracked, making a number of mistakes whereas Webb emerged with the win and a bigger points lead than ever.

Marvin Musquin has nothing to lose and everything to gain by riding aggressively from here on.

450 HEAT ONE

The first start of heat one saw Mike Alessi and Joey Savatgy go for the holeshot. Cooper Webb went down on the first lap and Marvin Musquin got into the lead, but everything was called back to the line when Ronnie Stewart and Tyler Enticknap went down and officials brought out the red flag. All the riders returned to the line for a complete restart. Everything changed this time around. Eli Tomac and Cooper Webb traded paint on the first lap while Musquin appeared to struggle with Justin Bogle a few places back. Soon, Tomac established himself in the lead while Joey Savatgy reeled in Webb. Everything changed in the late laps. Tomac pulled off with a mechanical problem at the same time as Savatgy passed Webb. Musquin went down, dropping all the way back to 11th. In the end, Webb made several huge mistakes and Savatgy was able to pull off the win. Musquin got up to 8th, eliminating the need to go to the LCQ, where he would have had to deal with an angry Tomac.

450 HEAT TWO

Honda had its best heat of the season  with Ken Roczen and Cole Seely going one-two in heat two. It didn’t start that way. Zach Osborne got the holeshot with Blake Baggett close behind. Roczen passed them both, and Baggett had a number of troubles, dropping him back to fifth. Soon, the two Honda riders established themselves in front while Osborne held off Dean Wilson for third.

450 LCQ

The Last Chance Qualifier was easy work for Eli Tomac despite a mediocre start. He passed Austin Politelli within a few laps an cruised to what should have been an easy win. But in the last few laps, his Kawasaki started smoking. The team had performed a quick motor change between races, and there was a possibility that something wasn’t quite right. He won, but the bike was sequestered back to the pits quickly.

450 COMBINED QUALIFYING
In the final session of practice, Ken Roczen stepped it up with the fastest time of the night. It was the same story a week ago in Houston, but a toe injury in the second main event there made his status for tonight questionable. That has clearly been answered now. Marvin Muquin  was fast as well, also stepping up his game in the final session. Dean Wilson, Joey Savatgy, Tyler Bowers and Eli Tomac all were within a second of the fastest time. Point leader Cooper Webb was in 10th, just outside of a second back.

450 GROUP A, SESSION 1
Marvin Musquin came in to the first qualifying practice hot, and was the only 450 to get into 49-second bracket. The track was already dry and dusty at that point, and many of the 250s were faster in their earlier session. At this point, the fastest rider of the day is still Austin Forkner.
