The Anaheim 1 Supercross is the first of 17 Rounds this year and it brings back a sense of normalcy for race fans after the entire state of California was missed from the Supercross schedule in 2022.
Team Honda HRC rider Jett Lawrence sustained a cracked rib on his left side in a crash while training at The Compound in Florida on December 27. The Australian was diagnosed the following day at B3 Medical in Tampa, Florida, and after taking a week off, he still wasn’t 100 percent when he tried riding in California on January 3. With the Anaheim 1 250SX West Region opener set to take place this Saturday, the team has decided to have Jett and teammate/brother Hunter Lawrence trade regions.

he wait is over, it’s race day! The 2022 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship kicks off today in Anaheim, California, and how great it is to be back in these hallowed grounds for supercross. Southern California last hosted a supercross back in February of 2020 when Petco Park in San Diego, California held the sixth round of the championship nearly two years ago. The stadium is expected to be packed with fans tonight, but it will definitely be packed with tension all day long.
Anaheim 1 Full Race day preview
Riders in both the 250SX West and 450SX classes got a glimpse of the track yesterday during press day. There was an early morning session for local news that many privateers attended before the large group of expected contenders hit the track in the afternoon. Rain is not expected in the forecast today, but there could be a damp mist that permeates the air throughout the day. That same mist was abundant yesterday and the dirt stayed very moist throughout the day because of it. If all goes to plan with the weather, we should be in for a banner night at the races.
Cooper Webb enters tonight as defending Monster Energy Supercross champion for the second time in the last three years and will look to successfully defend this time against a similar cast of challengers. The winningest active rider, Eli Tomac, has moved to the Monster Energy/Star Yamaha Racing program and looks as fit and ready as ever to chase his second 450SX title. Last year’s runner up Ken Roczen will enter his sixth season with Honda HRC in 2022 but heads into his second year aboard the current generation CRF450R. Perhaps a full year of testing and development on the bike will be enough to push Roczen to this title.
A new season is now just hours away and the riders of both the 250SX West and 450SX classes took to the track on Friday to get a lay of the land. There was some close calls, some rhythm lanes being figured out, and there once again was the sweet sound of bikes echoing through a stadium.
Jason Weigandt and Kris Keefer break down what they saw at press day for the Monster Energy AMA Supercross opener at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California. All brought to you by Honda and the all-new CRF250R.
