Detroit SX | All 6 Holeshots
By Billy Rainford
Here’s a look at who got all 6 of the holeshots at Ford Field in Detroit this past weekend for Round 8 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series.
#24 Austin Forkner grabs holeshot #1 on his way to a perfect night. He messed up briefly and lost the lead but regained it quickly and took the win.
450 race #1 was literally one for the ages. #10 Justin Brayton and #22 Chad Reed head into the first turn at the front of the pack. Justin led 15 of 17 laps in this one before #3 Eli Tomac took over for the win.
Forkner is scored as leading all 14 laps in 250 race #2 but he had to pass #28 Jordan Smith again on his way to the front on lap 1.
#2 Cooper Webb led the first 5 laps of 450 race #2 before #3 Eli Tomac took over for the win.
Once again, Forkner is scored with leading all 14 laps in the final 250 race of the night, winning this one wire to wire.
#4 Blake Baggett got out front early in the final 450 race of the night. He led the first 6 laps of the race before #51 Justin Barcia took over for 5 laps of his own. Webb finally got into the lead and lead the final 6 laps of the race.
