Following a 93 percent accuracy rate in 2022, the most-read, most popular blog in Supercross is back for another season of flaming hot predictions. We are off to round 10 in Detroit.
As the greatest wrastler alive, Ric Flair, once said: “I’m the stylin’, profilin’, limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin’ and dealin’ son of a gun.”
As always, we will first review my amazing picks from Indy before we get into Detroit.
Prediction | RJ Stays Strong
Yeah, RJ grew up in Florida. Yeah, RJ is good at Daytona. Know what else Slaw thinks of RJ? He’s just flat out good on a 450. I’m going out on a bun and saying top 5 this weekend.
RJ failed to alert Slaw he had been sick all week. He did qualify, but decide to sit out the night. Not Slaw’s fault. I blame the flu or whatever he had.
Prediction | Hunter Wins
Bold, I know!
Hunter Hunted and Huntered the entire field with ease. Slaw for AMA Media Member of the Year.
Slawdiction: 100 out of 10.
Prediction | Sexton Bounces Back
You COULD say Chase Sexton SHOULD be leading the points and you WOULDN’T be wrong. But he isn’t. Mistakes have killed him. Those stop this weekend. He gets the W. Stamp it.
Not sure what’s up with these mistakes. If he can iron them out, he’s going to be a problem.
Slawdiction: 1 out of 10.
Prediction | Tomac Wins
Wait, Slaw, you just said Sexton would win? I’m aware. Just hedging my bets, bubs!
Yeah, not sure what was up with Tomac. Weird night.
Slawdiction: 0 out of 10.
Prediction | Webb Wins
Just hedging my bets, bubs!
Paul got third. Guess what else he got? The red plate. So yeah win for Slaw.
Slawdiction: 100 out 10.
On to Detroit, the Crown Jewel of the series.
I’m going out on a bun this week, Slaw Nation. That’s right, I got Bam Bam for his first win of the year. You know when Bam is feeling it, you get images like this and piss revs all over the track.
Webb Keeps the Red Plate
The Weege described Webb so perfectly earlier this week on Twitter, so I’m stealing it and claiming it as my own. Good for me! Anyway, Webb keeps the red plate for another week.
Bold, I know!
Max Back on the Podium
Off night for a Mister Anstie in Indy. He’s back on the podium and delivering more epic speeches.
Karnow Packs Another Main
How can he not after this start to the weekend.
