SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS, ROUND 16–450 QUALIFYING

The strangest season in the history of Monster Energy Supercross is rapidly coming to a close with three riders riding in peak form. Eli Tomac, Ken Roczen and Cooper Webb have all hit career highs since the series resumed in a nearly empty Rice Eccles Stadium. All have won, but Wednesday, in particular, has been Webb day so far, and if you average all five rounds held here in Salt Lake City so far, Cooper Webb has turned in the best overall performance. Still, Eli Tomac has avoided the costly mistakes that have kept the title just out of his grasp in past years. Coming into round 16, he holds a 24-point lead over Ken Roczen. A win pays 26 points, so if Eli wins tonight, there’s a  good chance he can wrap up the championship a round early. In qualifying Jason Anderson took the top spot.
