LIVE: Monster Energy Supercross Round 11 coverage from Seattle

Jett Lawrence looks to keep his momentum alive for a fourth straight win, but the rest of the field knows they can’t let him get away. Round 11 of the Monster Energy Supercross season at Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington is one of the most important weeks on the schedule.

But if Lawrence has shown a bit of a weakness, it’s how he performs in muddy conditions. There is less than a 10 percent chance of rain by 7:00 PM across the Pacific with only a gradual increase across the grid.

Meanwhile, the 250 West division is back in action with home state Levi Kitchen looking to keep the red plate affixed to his bike when the series departs from Washington.

With seven rounds remaining in the 2024 Supercross season, it is imperative that the field begin to chip away at Jett Lawrence’s lead.

Qualification

The 450s

Eli Tomac (52.325) set the fastest time in Qualifier 1 with Jett Lawrence (52.603) 0.278 seconds behind him.

Chase Sexton and Cooper Webb claim championship hopes in third and fourth, respectively.

This is the first time Tomac has been fastest in a 2024 qualifying session.

In the false start, Cooper Webb gets the holeshot as Lawrence goes wide – but that’s why they practice.

Webb and Lawrence challenge each other for the top spot.

In qualifying, the course looks tough, so no one knows what the evening program will bring.

Michael Mosiman is back on the field this week and he goes to Group B this week. He starts the session two seconds faster than anyone else in this group with seven minutes remaining.

Lux Turner closes the gap.

Moziman’s exchange ends with two minutes remaining and falls. He is still the fastest over Turner. When Group A hit the track, note the time of 51.803 seconds and how it compares to Group A. By comparison, Turner was second in 53.009.

In Group A, the track seems to be slowing down. That’s good news for Mosiman, although there weren’t many concerns about whether he would be quick on his return. With three minutes remaining, Levi Kitchen (52.798) is the fastest Class A competitor.

Times slowed for Qualifier 2, but Mosiman remains fastest for the conditions. He dropped to 52.780, but his Q1 time will stand.

Joe Shimoda tops Group A with points challenger Jordan Smith second on the board. Nate Thrasher and RJ Hampshire were third and fourth respectively with Kitchen fifth.

Mosiman finished with fast time in qualifying, with Kitchen and Shimoda taking the next two spots on the podium.

Tuner is fourth and Smith rounds out the top five.
