450SX Class: Nashville Historical Facts

2019 Nashville: The first 450SX Class round held in Nashville was on April 6, 2019, and Eli Tomac won on a Kawasaki. Tomac and Marvin Musquin were tied in second behind Webb by 21 points after the round, and Webb held them off for the Championship. 2019 Nashville was the 14th round of the season, just like 2024. Nashville became the 47th different city to host a 450SX Class round and Nissan Stadium became the 59th different venue to host in 2019.

2023 Nashville: The 2023 Nashville Supercross marked the second time Supercross visited Nissan Stadium and was the 15th round of the season. Tomac led the Championship by 11 points over Webb and 21 over Chase Sexton with three rounds remaining. Unfortunately, Webb was injured in his Heat Race, leaving the Championship battle to Tomac and Sexton. Sexton scored the Nashville victory and the title after Tomac suffered an injury in the penultimate Denver round.

Tennessee Tied: For the third time in his career Webb heads into the Music City sweating a tight points race. He finished third in 2019 Nashville sustaining his title run but ended his season in the Heat Race of the 2023 Nashville Supercross. Webb has tied Jett Lawrence in the points going into the 14th round of the season, with Sexton 15 points behind (he was 21 behind going into Nashville 2023, and eventually won the Championship). The 450SX Class Championship has never been tied going into the 14th round of a season. 1992 was the previous closest, with Jean-Michel Bayle leading Jeff Stanton by two points going into the 14th round. 2017 is the next closest when Ryan Dungey led Tomac by four points after 13 rounds.

Championship %: After Sexton’s improbable Championship comeback last season, including his Nashville win, Nissan Stadium is now 1/2 with winners taking the title. Tomac was unsuccessful in 2019 after taking the Nashville victory. 2024 will mark the third race held in Nissan Stadium, and the first in consecutive seasons.

Going into Nashville, Austin Forkner held a 26-point lead on Sexton with only three rounds remaining in the Eastern Regional 250SX Class Championship. Forkner sustained an injury during practice, while Sexton’s runner-up moved him into position to capture the red-plate one Eastern round later. Both times Sexton has visited Nashville he had a large points deficit, only to erase it and win the title (2019 Eastern Regional, 2023 450SX Class).

2023 Nashville: Hunter Lawrence clinched the 2023 Eastern Regional 250SX Class title with his victory in Nissan Stadium last year. It was the last 250SX Class victory of his career before moving into the 450SX Class for 2024. Haiden Deegan (4th), Max Anstie (5th), Tom Vialle (7th), and Henry Miller (9th) were also in the top 10 last season in Nashville and are looking to line up in Nissan Stadium this season.

Inside the Numbers: Nashville became the 39th different city to host a 250SX Class round and Nissan Stadium the 53rd different venue to host one in 2019. Birmingham, Alabama’s Protective Stadium became the 41st city and 57th different venue to host a 250SX Class round when they hosted round nine of this season.

Championship %: H. Lawrence’s title clinch in Nissan Stadium last year buoyed Nashville’s Championship % to 1/2, as Davalos did not win the title in 2019 after winning Nashville. Combined with the 450SX Class, the Championship % is 2/4.
