Behind The Lens Presented By Fox Racing Canada- 2023 Detroit Supercross

As the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Series arrived in the Motor City a few things were certain. First, we were going to see the ongoing dominance by Hunter Lawrence in the 250SX East class as so far he’s been unstoppable. Also, in the 450SX class, we knew the action was going to off the charts at the front of the pack as right now there are at least five riders capable of winning main events. Yes, Detroit kept it’s promise of being one of the most interesting rounds of the series and in the end it was Hunter Lawrence taking the win in the 250SX East class, while Chase Sexton benefited from a last lap crash by Aaron Plessinger to win the 450SX main event. As he’s been doing all season long Matt Wellumson sent us these incredible photos from Ford Field in downtown Detroit.

It might have been cold outside but the action was hot inside Ford Field.

Ad just when we thought Smith had the pass made on Deegan…

In the end Deegan got the best of the incident.

Since coming back from injury Adam Cianciarulo has been getting stronger and stronger with each race.

Justin Barcia started off well in the main event but was unable to get to the front.

The battle for second in the 450SX was once again exciting.

Tomac was able to get passed Webb early in the main event but Webb got him back.

Tom Vialle and Chris Blose had a great battle late in the 250SX East main event.

The one thing you cannot argue with is that Deegan has a lot of young fans.

Once again Hunter Lawrence dominated the 250SX East main event.

Jeremy Martin had another solid night as he continues his comeback.

Aaron Plessinger had the 450SX main event wrapped up until disaster struck on the final lap.

With no visor and a smoking bike Plessinger was unable to finish.

It will be interesting to see how Plessinger bounces back this weekend in Seattle.

Your 450SX podium from Detroit.

Chase Sexton took the lead on the final lap after Plessinger went down.

After throwing the lead away multiple times this season Sexton deserved a little luck.

There isn’t too much room on the opening lap.

The whoops in Detroit were like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Cooper Webb came into Detroit with the 450SX points lead and left with it also.

St-Cyr had another strong night in Detroit finishing 15th in the LCQ.
