Supercross 2022: Results and points after Round 15 in Foxborough


Jason Anderson kept his playoff hopes alive at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts with a second consecutive win in Round 15 of the Monster Energy Supercross championship, but left the race 43 points behind Eli Tomac.

It was the fifth win of the season for Anderson, who could tie Tomac for the most victories in 2022 if he sweeps the last two rounds. The last time Anderson had back-to-back wins earlier this season was in Anaheim 3 and Minneapolis. He finished second the next week in the Texas Triple Crown in Arlington.

With a points’ lead to protect, Tomac rode a conservative race. He and Anderson bumped early in the event, so Tomac chose discretion over valor and dropped back. Once in heavy traffic, he continued to lose positions and finished seventh on the afternoon. The series heads to his home state of Colorado next week, where he can wrap up the title if he finishes sixth or better.

Chase Sexton was the only rider who could keep up with Anderson in Foxborough. He closed the gap in traffic, but once Anderson cleared the pack Sexton lost three seconds before the end of the race. This was the third straight podium and sixth top-five in the last seven races for Sexton.

Following a modest result of 10th last week in Atlanta, Marvin Musquin rebounded and took the final spot on the podium. Musquin was happy to be among the top three. His first 10 races of 2022 produced only one podium; he has now earned four in his last five efforts.

Malcolm Stewart kept a perfect record of 2022 top-10 finishes alive with his fourth-place finish in Foxborough. Considered a challenger for the Supercross championship early in the season, Stewart is now 69 points behind Tomac after Round 15, but is part of a tight battle for third in the standings with Justin Barcia and Musquin.

Barcia did his part to keep his position in the standings by rounding out the top five.

In sixth, Cooper Webb was the only other rider to finish on the lead lap after passing Tomac at the end.

Austin Forkner won the battle, but Jett Lawrence won the 250 East war with one race remaining for this division. It was an emotional night for both riders.

Forkner’s 12th career win came in his second race after returning from an injury in the Texas Triple Crown when he broke his collarbone after a mid-air collision with Lawrence. Last week, Forkner won his heat, but faded to seventh in the feature.

At Foxborough, he and Lawrence started the race mid-pack and rode to the front in tandem.

Lawrence needed to finish sixth or better to win his first 250 title and he easily sealed the deal with a second-place finish. Lawrence was originally slotted into the 250 West division, but an off-season crash caused the Honda team to trade positions with his brother, Hunter Lawrence who is embroiled in a battle with Christian Craig.

Jett has had a perfect record of podium finishes through eight rounds.

Pierce Brown took the lead from Cullin Park in the feature and held it for the next 14 circuits until he was passed by Forkner. Lawrence followed shortly after, but Brown held on to score his second podium of the season. He was also third in Detroit.

Park faded to ninth at the checkers.

Mitchell Oldenburg scored his fourth top-five of the season after crossing under the checkers in fourth.

Kyle Chisholm, who has split his time between the 250 and 450 classes in 2022, rounded out the top five.

RJ Hampshire entered Foxborough as the only rider with a shot at beating Lawrence for the title. He had a steep hill to climb after finishing 12th in his heat and being forced into the Last Chance Qualifier. He led every lap of that race to advance to the main, but could muster only a sixth-place finish in the big show.

Starting lineup grid for IMSA Petit Le Mans: Tom Blomqvist puts MSR on pole position

Petit Le Mans lineup

IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar championship contender Tom Blomqvist put the Meyer Shank Racing Acura at the front of the starting lineup for the Motul Petit Le Mans at Michelin Road Atlanta.

Blomqvist turned a 1-minute, 8.55-second lap on the 2.54-mile circuit Friday to capture his third pole position for MSR this season. Earl Bamber qualified second in the No. 02 Cadillac for Chip Ganassi Racing.

Ricky Taylor was third in the No. 10 Acura of Wayne Taylor Racing, which enters Saturday’s season finale with a 19-point lead over the No. 60 of Blomqvist and Oliver Jarvis (who will be joined by Helio Castroneves) for the 10-hour race.

With the pole, MSR sliced the deficit to 14 points behind WTR, which will field the trio of Taylor, Filipe Albuquerque and Brendon Hartley in Saturday’s race.

“We really needed to put the car in this kind of position,” Blomqvist said. “It makes our life a little less stressful tomorrow. It would have given the No. 10 a bit more breathing space. It’s going to be a proper dogfight tomorrow. The guys gave me such a great car. It’s been fantastic this week so far, and it really came alive. I’m hugely thankful to the boys and girls at MSR for giving me the wagon today to execute my job.

“That was a big effort from me. I knew how important it was. It’s just awesome for the guys to give them some sort of reward as well. It’s always nice to be quick. If you do the pole, you know you’ve got a quick car.”

Though WTR has a series-leading four victories with the No. 10, MSR won the Rolex 24 at Daytona and has five runner-up finishes along with its three poles.

The strong performances of the ARX-05s ensure that an Acura will win the final championship in IMSA’s premier Daytona Prototype international (DPi) division, which is being rebranded as Grand Touring Prototype in the move to LMDh cars next season.

Taylor qualified third despite sliding into the Turn 5 gravel during the closing minutes of qualifying while pushing to gain points.

“Qualifying was important for points,” Taylor said. “Going into it, if we outqualified the No. 60 Meyer Shank Acura, they had a lot to lose in terms of championship points. So, we were trying to increase the gap over 20 points which would’ve made a big difference for tomorrow. We would have loved to get the pole and qualify ahead of the No. 60, but in the scheme of the points, it didn’t change a whole lot. I’m feeling good since it’s such a long race, and the No. 10 Konica Minolta Acura team does such a good job strategizing and putting us in a good position.

“I’m very confident in our lineup and our team compared to them over the course of 10 hours. I’d put my two teammates up against those guys any day. I think we are all feeling optimistic and strong for tomorrow.”

In other divisions, PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports (LMP2), Riley Motorsports (LMP3), VasserSullivan (GTD Pro) and Paul Miller Racing (GTD) captured pole positions.

The broadcast of the 10-hour race will begin Saturday at 12:10 p.m. ET on NBC, moving at 3 p.m. to USA Network.
