Supercross 2021: Results and points standings after Round 6 at Indy


Ken Roczen made a perfect sweep of the Indianapolis Supercross residency with his Round 6 win over Cooper Webb. It took four years for Roczen to win back to back races last week in the second race of the residency, but just four days to set a new career mark for his most consecutive wins.

Roczen was under pressure for most of the race by Justin Barcia, who managed to ride alongside the eventual winner midway through the race. While Barcia pressured Roczen, Webb rode through the field and slipped into the runner-up position by 0.888 seconds.

An incident on the final lap altered the top five. Riding third, Barcia got pinched off a jump by Vince Friese. He was helped from the course after getting tagged by Eli Tomac.

That incident allowed Marvin Musquin to stand on the podium for the second time this season. His first podium came in Round 1 in Houston.

In fourth, Malcolm Stewart tied his career best finish as Adam Cianciarulo climbed to fifth.

Returning from injury, Jason Anderson finished sixth.

Tomac remounted after his crash with Barcia and finished seventh. His biggest loss was in the points standings, where he now trails Roczen by 24 points. A first place finish in Supercross awards 26 points, so Tomac is almost one full race behind in third.

Dylan Ferrandis in eighth, Joey Savatgy in ninth and Zach Osborne in 10th rounded out the top 10.

Christian Craig ended teammate Colt Nichols three-round winning streak. Or perhaps it was Nichols who ended the streak himself.

In Indy 3, Nichols learned just how fragile a points lead can be. He cross-rutted on the opening lap and dropped from first to last. Nichols might have panicked, but if he did he kept it bottled up inside and climbed to 10th by the halfway mark and fifth by Lap 10.

Nichols’ accident handed the lead to Craig, who set sail and never looked back. At the checkers, he was 7.560 seconds ahead of Jo Shimoda. It was the second win of the season for the Yamaha rider and cut Nichols’ points lead in half. With a perfect string of top-fives, Craig trails Nichols by only six points with two rounds in the 250 East remaining.

Incredibly Nichols battled back to take the final spot on the podium.

Rookie Jett Lawrence did not make it easy on him. After riding all the way up to fifth halfway through the race, Lawrence made his bike wide in front of Nichols. To say Lawrence rode defensively with Nichols on his bumper would be an understatement. At one point Lawrence practically stopped on the course to force Nichols to run into his rear wheel.

Ultimately Lawrence got crossed up with a lapped bike and lost fourth to Mitchell Oldenburg. Lawrence finished fifth.

Joshua Osby in sixth, Hunter Sayles in seventh, Devin Simonson in eighth, Thomas Do in ninth and Luke Neese in 10th rounded out the top 10

Seattle Supercross by the numbers: Three riders separated by 17 points


Three riders remain locked in a tight battle with 17 points separating the leader Cooper Webb from third-place Chase Sexton and these are only a few Supercross numbers to consider entering Seattle.

For the fifth time in 10 rounds. Sexton, Webb, and Eli Tomac shared the podium in Detroit. Between them, the trio has taken 23 podiums, leaving only seven for the remainder of the field. Jason Anderson, Ken Roczen and Justin Barcia have two each with Aaron Plessinger scoring the other.

Webb and Tomac won the last four championships with two apiece in alternating years, but they were not one another’s primary rival for most of those seasons. On the average, however, the past four years show an incredible similarity with average points earned of 21.0 for Webb and 21.3 for Tomac. With five wins so far this season, Tomac (23 wins) leads Webb (19) in victories but Webb (43) edges Tomac (41) in podium finishes during this span.

Tomac has won two of the last three Seattle races and those two wins in this stadium are topped only by James Stewart. Fittingly, if Tomac gets a third win this week, he will tie Stewart for second on the all-time wins’ list. Tomac tied Ricky Carmichael for third with 48 wins at Oakland and took sole possession of that spot with his Daytona win.

Sexton still has a lot to say and after winning last week in Detroit, he is speaking up. The Supercross numbers are against him entering Seattle, however, because a points’ deficit this large after Round 10 has been erased only once. In 1983 David Bailey was 47 points behind Bob Hannah, and like Sexton he was also in third place. Bailey took the points’ lead with one race remaining.

The seven points Sexton was penalized last week for jumping in a red cross flag section in Detroit could prove extremely costly.

In fact, it has been a series of mistakes that has cost Sexton the most. In the last two weeks, he lost 10 points with a 10th-place finish to go with his penalty. Erase those, and all three riders hold their fate in their hands.

Plessinger’s heartbreak in Detroit is still fresh, but the upside of his run is that was his best of the season and could turn his fortunes around. Prior to that race, he led only seven laps in three mains. He was up front for 20 laps in Detroit with five of those being the fastest on the track.

Last week’s win by Hunter Lawrence tied him with his brother Jett Lawrence for 17th on the all-time wins’ list. With the focus shifting to 250 West for the next two rounds, Jett has a great opportunity to pull back ahead. The real test will be at the first East / West Showdown in East Rutherford, New Jersey on April 22.
