Supercross 2022: Results and points after Round 10 in Detroit


Eli Tomac scored a third consecutive win in Monster Energy Supercross Round 10 as the remainder of the results were impacted by frightening incidents.

Tomac became the fourth rider to lead Saturday night when he took the lead from Jason Anderson on Lap 13.

The head-to-head battle in the middle stages of the Detroit race was important because in a couple of previous matchups Anderson came out on top of Tomac, notably in Anaheim 3 and Arlington in two of the three features. Tomac prevailed this time – and things would get worse for Anderson. On Lap 18, Anderson’s front tire washed out in a turn and sent him to the ground hard. He remounted only to ride off course.

Two weeks ago, following the Texas Triple Crown in Arlington, Tomac held a slim six-point advantage, but contact between second-place Anderson and Malcolm Stewart at Daytona sent both riders to the ground. They would also be docked one position for the incident, but the damage was already done and the points lead became 18.

Anderson is now 42 points behind Tomac in the championship standings.

After consecutive races with incidents involving Anderson, Stewart was the beneficiary of the late-race chaos. Riding comfortably in third on Lap 17, Stewart climbed to second at the checkers and earned enough points to tie Anderson for second in the standings. Putting last week behind him, this is Stwart’s eighth top five in the last nine Supercross races.

Justin Barcia earned his fourth podium of the season after finishing fifth or sixth in the last three rounds. Remarkably, he was riding with an injured hand from a practice crash.

Marvin Musquin finished fourth, which is his best result since he was third in Minneapolis, Minnesota three races ago.

Justin Brayton finished fifth for his first top-five of what will be his final fulltime Supercross season.

Battling for fourth on Lap 16, Cooper Webb cased a jump and after hitting the front of the hill, his momentum slowed. Chase Sexton had nowhere to go and clipped Webb’s helmet. Upon landing, Sexton’s bike landed on him. Sexton was done for the night. Webb remounted to ride slowly around the track one handed for a couple of circuits before finishing 20th.


Anderson and Sexton are reportedly bruised but fine. The status of Webb has not yet been answered.

Jett Lawrence led all 21 laps of the 250 East feature. On a tricky track, Lawrence steadily built his advantage until he was slowed in heavy traffic and allowed Pierce Brown to close to within less than a second. Once clear, Lawrence scooted back out to a comfortable lead and eventually won by more than six seconds.

The lapped traffic allowed Cameron McAdoo to close in on Brown and the hunter became the hunted. McAdoo was victorious and scored his fourth podium in as many races. He won the overall in the Texas Triple Crown.

Brown fell back to third, but earned his first podium of the season. Last week in Daytona, he was fourth.

RJ Hampshire also earned his best result of the season in fourth. He started the year fifth at Minneapolis and had a third in one of the three Arlington features, but crashed in Race 2 and finished 16th overall.

Rounding out the top five, Jordon Smith had an adventurous night. Riding comfortably in a transfer position in his heat, he was wrecked by another rider and forced into the LCQ. He won that event to move into the Main. This is his third consecutive result of sixth or fifth.

Winner Josef Newgarden earns $3.666 million from a record Indy 500 purse of $17 million


INDIANAPOLIS — The first Indy 500 victory for Josef Newgarden also was the richest in race history from a record 2023 purse of just more than $17 million.

The two-time NTT IndyCar Series champion, who continued his celebration Monday morning at Indianapolis Motor Speedway earned $3.666 million for winning the 107th running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.

The purse and winner’s share both are the largest in the history of the Indianapolis 500.

It’s the second consecutive year that the Indy 500 purse set a record after the 2022 Indy 500 became the first to crack the $16 million mark (nearly doubling the 2021 purse that offered a purse of $8,854,565 after a crowd limited to 135,000 because of the COVID-19 pandemic).

The average payout for IndyCar drivers was $500,600 (exceeding last year’s average of $485,000).

Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner Roger Penske, whose team also fields Newgarden’s No. 2 Dallara-Chevrolet, had made raising purses a priority since buying the track in 2020. But Penske but was unable to post big money purses until the race returned to full capacity grandstands last year.

The largest Indy 500 purse before this year was $14.4 million for the 2008 Indy 500 won by Scott Dixon (whose share was $2,988,065). Ericsson’s haul made him the second Indy 500 winner to top $3 million (2009 winner Helio Castroneves won $3,048,005.

Runner-up Marcus Ericsson won $1.043 million after falling short by 0.0974 seconds in the fourth-closest finish in Indy 500 history.

The 107th Indy 500 drew a crowd of at least 330,000 that was the largest since the sellout for the 100th running in 2016, and the second-largest in more than two decades, according to track officials.

“This is the greatest race in the world, and it was an especially monumental Month of May featuring packed grandstands and intense on-track action,” Penske Entertainment president and CEO Mark Miles said in a release. “Now, we have the best end card possible for the 107th Running of the Indianapolis 500: a record-breaking purse for the history books.”

Benjamin Pedersen was named the Indy 500 rookie of the year, earning a $50,000 bonus.

The race’s purse is determined through contingency and special awards from IMS and IndyCar. The awards were presented Monday night in the annual Indy 500 Victory Celebration at the JW Marriott in downtown Indianapolis.
