2024 SUPERCROSS SEASON STATISTICS

With the conclusion of the 2024 Supercross season, we take a closer look at how the riders stacked up against each other. Last weekend three champions were crowned but how did they get to this position and how did the competition play a role in their success? As we move into pro motocross who is most likely to grab wins, stay consistent, and become a champion?

JETT LAWRENCE AND TEAM HONDA

Jett Lawrence becomes the 25th different rider to win a premier class championship.

Jett Lawrence won the 2024 450SX championship, making him the 25th different rider to achieve this accomplishment. He’s only the 3rd rookie to do so, following Jeremy McGrath in 1993 and Ryan Dungey in 2010. Lawrence is also just the 4th non-American to win the 450SX title, joining Karsmakers from Holland, Bayle from France, and Reed from Australia. He’s the second Australian to accomplish this feat. In the season, Lawrence started in 17 main events, winning 8 times and landing on the podium 10 times, with an average finish of 3.4. He’s now part of the select group of riders who have won both a regional SX championship and a 450SX championship, making him the 11th rider to achieve this. This victory marks Honda’s 7th consecutive SX championship with two different riders. Adding to his achievements, Lawrence has two 250 MX championships, one 450 MX championship, one 450SX championship, and one SMX championship under his belt. During Round 14 in Nashville, both Jett Lawrence and Max Anstie won their respective classes, marking the first time Honda had swept an event with two foreign riders. Honda’s dominance in the 450SX realm continues, with a total of 17 championships and an impressive tally of 237 450SX wins.

COOPER WEBB AND STAR RACING YAMAHA

Cooper Webb was the runner-up of the 2024 Supercross season, despite battling injury throughout.

Cooper Webb secured a 2nd place finish in the points standings. This marked his fifth time finishing within the Top 5 in the final points standings. Throughout the season, Webb participated in 17 races, achieving 4 victories, 9 podium finishes, and 14 Top 5 placements, resulting in an average finish of 3.6. Additionally, Yamaha accumulated its 15th runner-up position in the final points standings in Supercross.

CHASE SEXTON AND FACTORY KTM

Chase Sexton was able to make his way back into third position overall with his win in Salt Lake City.

Chase Sexton wrapped up the season in 3rd place in the final points standings. His performance also contributed to extending KTM’s win streak to 13 seasons. However, his 22nd-place finish in Nashville significantly dented his chances of securing another championship, especially considering his average finish of 5.1 for the season. Impressively, Sexton secured victory in round 17 for the second consecutive year.

ELI TOMAC AND STAR RACING YAMAHA

Eli Tomac unfortunately did not finish the season due to a fracture on his thumb which ended his 2024 Supercross run.

Eli Tomac concluded the season in 4th place in the points standings, marking his 12th consecutive season with a start. Additionally, it was his 10th consecutive season with a win and his 11th consecutive season with a podium finish. Notably, Tomac joined an elite group as only the 4th rider in SX history to achieve 100 podiums. Furthermore, he maintained an impressive record by finishing in the Top 4 of the points standings for the 10th consecutive season. Since 2015, Tomac has maintained an average finish of 4.2.

THE BIG FOUR JAPANESE BRANDS WERE SHUT OUT OF THE 250SX CHAMPIONSHIP

Since 1985 when the 250 Region SX championships started, a Japanese brand has always won at least one of the championships.

In the 2024 season, KTM dominated the East division while Husqvarna was superior in the West. Tom Vialle, riding for KTM, secured two wins, ultimately clinching the East title. Meanwhile, RJ Hampshire, representing Husqvarna, captured three wins, securing the West title. In the 250 SX category, KTM now has 42 wins and 4 250 titles, while Husqvarna has accumulated 15 wins and 3 250 titles.
