POWER RANKINGS ARE HERE! This week the sport’s most important power couple are here to bring you the best Power Rankings lists in the sport! Troy Dog and Ginger Dog know the importance of Power Ranking day, unlike our ‘friend’ Slaw Dog, who took an unapproved vacation day.

Also missing in action is J-Law. We had him dialed in on these for five weeks before today, so I’ll give him a pass and look forward to next week’s list. Denny Stephenson is busy in Glendale at the moment getting me scoops and I gave him the day off on Ranks.

Let’s get to it! Go ahead G-Dog!

Ginger Dog

-I’m really proud of Austin. I feel like during all of my time in moto, Austin has been battling injury after injury. He showed up and looked good. If he keeps riding the way he did in Detroit I think he has a chance at the title. 

-Thanks to Cam, all the Detroit hype quieted the helmet grab buzz. Jett has returned to golden boy status and took his second win of the season. I think he is going to do it again tomorrow. 

-Rest easy big dog. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pulling out my red solo cup this weekend and pouring one out for Toby. 

-3rd overall for his rookie debut. I’m keeping my eye on this kid. 

-Kenny looked fast in Detroit. He went from 9th to 3rd pretty quick. He made a track that was claiming bodies (and pants) look easy. 

-He was able to escape the first turn mosh pit and it got him a career best. Congrats on P4!  

-Marshal (aka Troy Dog) took top 10! 

-Pless put up a good fight and gained quite a bit considering his rough start. He climbed his way back to 6th and the crowd loved every bit of it. He’s the one guy that can get the fans so loud I can hear them through my TV. 

-Tomac won Glendale last year (It was a Triple C). Can he podium again this weekend? 

-I’m pretty sure Freddie saw God while taking that last transer spot. I was a little panicked when I didn’t see him line up for the main, but it turns out he had a bike issue that was really out of anyone’s control. I’m ready to see what he can do in Glendale.

Troy Dog

– Massive props to Cameron McAdoo for making it through the week. He’s been beaten up with jokes since Saturday night. He even made Barstool. One thing that I like about McAdoo is that he’s a fighter and he’s not a quitter. He’s not going to let all of you get to him for all the jokes either. McAdoo is ready to make a run at this championship and who knows, maybe his ballsy performance on Saturday night helps him win the title in the end?

– I’m going to be Aaron Plessinger’s hat holder at the Indianapolis SX. The only problem is that AP hasn’t agreed to it yet. We’re waiting AP, I know you’re in a championship fight, but this is important.

– Derek Kelley had to have another surgery to replace the plates and screws in his arm. This has set back his return to Monster Energy Supercross for 2024. Nevertheless, he’s still planning on coming back around St. Louis and hasn’t given up his great attitude.

– JMart had a very scary moment during 250SX Heat 1 that took him out for the evening. I thought it may be even longer. Yet, somehow thankfully, Martin will be okay to race Arlington next weekend.

– The first turn of the 250SX East Region main event took out the entire field. Several title contenders ended up on the ground. That was the second biggest storyline of the week.

– Jett bounced back and became the first two-time winner of the 450SX class.

– Oh, look at that, another rider joins the Squad and puts in his career best finish. Is it a coincidence? Nope, this has happened with Grant Harlan, Justin Starling, Derek Kelley, Hunter Yoder, Ashton Bloxom, and now Weltin. The entire team. I tried to tell y’all…

– Cooper Webb is coming for all of you.

– Cadetroit didn’t go so well, but his patented Cade Air to front flip should be in the X Games this year.

– Nate Thrasher, Monster Energy/Star Racing Yamaha, title dark horse.
