Following a nearly 55 percent pick rate over the first 14 rounds, I’m here to bring you the most flame, fire, fuego, feu, predictions for the 15th round of Monster Energy Supercross in Foxborough.
NONE of this would be possible without the folks at FLY Racing, who have stepped in to support Slaw and #slawnation couldn’t be happier. Visit www.flyracing.com and support those who support Slaw.
As always, we will first review my predictions from the last round in Atlanta…
Prediction | Someone Will Win the 250 Showdown
Jett? Craig? Hampshire? Mosiman? Someone else? All I know is someone will win giving me a perfect 10 out of 10.
As I CORRECTLY predicted, some one did in fact win the Showdown. Great job, Hunter for helping me keep up my 1000 percent accuracy rate.
Slawdiction: 100 out of 10.
Prediction | Hymas Runs Away with Supercross Futures
With no Ryder D, this is all Hymas all day long, doggies.
With no Ryder D, Hymas was certainly the favorite. Did I see him winning by more than 45 seconds? No, no I did not.
Slawdiction: 10 out of 10.
Prediction | Tomac Breaks Reed’s Record
Have you seen Tomac at Daytona? Ummm… exactly. He gets it done this weekend.
We will get there when it’s time.
Slawdiction: 0 out of 10.
Prediction | WE HAVE A MUDDER
I hope we don’t, but the forecast ain’t looking great. Apparently I don’t know what weather means either….
Luckily it did not rain during the race, but it def rained and there was def mud. I’m taking some credit.
Slawdiction: 5 out of 10.
One Rider Falls Asleep During Track Walk
5:30 a.m TRACK WALK! Look, I love day races, but 100 percent someone is coming straight from the bar to the track. Count it!
The rain delayed the schedule so some people had time to decompress after a late night.
On to Foxborough, the Crown Jewel of the series…
Tomac and Jett Clinch
As we outlined earlier this week, both Eli Tomac and Jett Lawrence can clinch their respective titles this weekend. Jett’s road to his first title is pretty simple: all he has to do is finish 18th or better this weekend and the title is his. Jett’s worse finish this year? Third. Yeah, I like his chances.
Tomac’s road to a second 450 title is a little more complicated. All Tomac needs to do is beat Jason Anderson and he will clinch his second 450 title. The only way for Anderson to stay alive and take the title fight to Denver is by taking two or more points out of Tomac’s lead. Anderson, who won Atlanta last weekend, will make this tough for Tomac, but I’m betting Tomac gets it done this weekend.
Sexton Gets It Done
Man, I really feel like Chase Sexton could have like five wins this year. Instead, he has just one (San Diego). Speed is certainly not a problem for ole Sex Dog, but little mistakes are killing him. Not this weekend, doggies. He gets win number two on the year.
We Hear 500 Complaints on Moto Twitter About It Being a Day Race
Look, I get it: Day races aren’t for everyone. But guess what helps the sport grow? Having afternoon coverage on N B “Fing” C. Back-to-back rounds on broadcast TV is a big deal and if that means we start early I’m fine with it. Don’t @ me.
Jett Does NOT Eat a Donut on the Podium
Imagine if we could bet on Supercross? There would 100 percent be a prop bet on Jett eating a donut on the podium after clinching his title…. AND I WOULD BET AGAINST IT! Ain’t happening.
Hymas Dominates Futures Again
Member last week? Member him winning by over 45 seconds? Yeah…. he wins again this weekend.
