Eli Tomac made a rare mistake in Race 3 that cost him the Arlington win. – Feld Motor Sports

The night started hard for Webb. He was stuck in traffic at the start of Race 1 and could only move up to fifth place in that feature. With Tomac winning and Sexton on the podium, he could have been crossed off the list, but Webb did what Webb does.

Webb kept his composure and finished better each successive round with second in race 2 and a race 3 win. His 5-2-1 totaled eight points and equalized Sexton, but thanks to a win in the last race, he owned the tiebreaker.

Sexton did not manage to win any of the three races, but his 3-3-2 was also enough for eight points. Race points are not paid out until the three features have been added together, so Sexton’s second overall finish allowed him to catch up on Tomac in the hunt for the championship. Sexton is now five behind Tomac and three behind Webb, finishing second in a three-man competition that is getting very exciting.

Tomac rarely makes mistakes, so he was a bit of a shock when he crashed while leading race 3. As with Anaheim 1, he failed to get past the tunnel jump, but where he was able to correct his mistake was in California, a track in Texas was not as forgiving. Tomac dropped to fourth immediately after the crash and lost a couple more positions due to the loss of rhythm.

His 1-4-6 totaled 10 points and put him in third place on the grid.

Like Webb, Jason Anderson got better in every race, but the crash at the start of the first part was too difficult to overcome. In that race, he was at the back of the pack, and as he climbed to eighth in checkers, the damage was done. He put in a valiant effort, winning race 2. His 8-1-3 total brought 12 points and put him in fourth place overall.

Ken Roczen also scored 12 points with a 2-6-4 score, but as Anderson had the best result in race 3, Roczen finished in fifth place. It was still a solid rebound from 11th last week and fifth in the top 5 in the first seven rounds of 2023.

Arlington Supercross Results
Jordon Smith and Nate Thrasher finished on the podium in Arlington. – Feld Motor Sports

It turns out that Hunter Lawrence can be defeated.

Despite a knee injury, Nate Thrasher took the podium in three Arlington Supercross Triple Crown races and his 2-2-3 record was enough to give him the overall win. He has yet to climb to the top of the podium after the individual race, but his second place at the opening of the 250 East in Houston contributes to his third place in points.

Thrasher’s teammate Jordon Smith had a mathematical path to win the overall standings before tripping over the cheers in the last minutes of race 3. Finishing fourth in part one put him at a slight disadvantage, but he recovered to win race 2. In the final tally, his 4-1-5 tied him with Lawrence on points, with Smith finishing second on the tiebreaker.

Perhaps the only thing keeping Lawrence from first place on the podium is bad luck. He ran out of space on the first corner of the final race and crashed. He could have gotten over it so far if Max Anstey hadn’t run over his bike and pinned Lawrence to the ground for a few seconds. Due to a broken clutch lever, Lawrence had to ride conservatively in this race but moved up to sixth at the end and his 1-3-6 was enough to put him on the podium.

European motocross star Tom Vialle continues to impress. This year, he fought for the top five in every race and finally made it to Arlington. His 5-9-2 put him in fourth place on the table.

Anstey’s involvement in a race 3 lap 1 crash pushed him into the background for that race; in the end, he could only move up to ninth place. After placing third in race 1 and fourth in race 2, he was fifth overall overall.

Jeremy Martin won the last race of the evening, but poor results in race 2 and 12th placed him down to sixth overall. In a race filled with crashes, Martin was as surprised as everyone else that he climbed to the top of the podium in this final run.
