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. This was originally slated for last week’s nonexistent Oakland round, but seeing as the rain postponed racing, it also postponed this amazing blog. But what better way to start your Friday morning other than perfectly predicted bench-racing?
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 Anaheim 1 before we get into
Oakland San Diego.
Prediction | Ken Roczen Wins A1
Yep, I’m going there. Ken wants to prove people wrong and show that the yellow banana still has it. He wins A1.
LOOK… Ken looked great. WE (Suzuki) are back. I’m not worried about this AT ALL!
Slawdiction: 5 out of 10.
Prediction | Jett Wins
Bold, I know.
Slawdiction: 199 out of 10.
Prediction | Tomac Finishes Off the Podium
Tomac is still my pick to win the title, but with a brand-new bike, and honestly, he’s never been great at the opener, I don’t see him getting on the box.
I should have known with those track conditions Tomac would get it done. My bad. I own that. BUT, I mean, he’s NEVER won an opener before Saturday and was on an all-new bike. I mean…
Slawdiction: Incomplete (Ed. Note: Slaw got SMOKED.)
Prediction | Hampshire Pressures Jett
RJ wants to prove he can win this title and I think he challenges Jett a LOT at A1.
Hamp Dog was good! Like, really good.
Slawdiction: 10 out of 10.
Prediction | A Big Name Doesn’t Make the Main
It’s A1, crazy shit happens. It’s like not including Slaw on your dog, stupid stuff happens.
Chizz. McElrath. Karnow. Cade. Benny. Lots of dudes that will be regular main event dudes did not make it.
Slawdiction: 10 out of 10.
Prediction | AC Top 5
I’ve never seen a season with less AC hype. If he’s healthy, which man, I hope he is, he will score a top five.
Look, AC just needs to get through some rounds. WE are building.
Slawdiction: 3 out of 10.
Oakland San Diego, the Crown Jewel Whale’s Vagina of the series…
Jett Wins Again
Bold. I know. (Ed. Note: We are sticking with the Jett.)
Webb is Back! Wins in
Oakland San Diego!
Webb got that dang dawg in him! He was on a damn charge at A1. It reminded me of his two title winning seasons: Just wearing dudes down to the dang bone late in the race.
Oakland San Diego track conditions could be insane, so I think he just keeps it on two, grinds dudes down and wins… after going winless in 2022. (Ed. Note: San Diego track conditions could be crazy too. We are staying with this pick.)
Oh, buddy, AP is licking his dang chops if the track is going to be what I think it will be. Rain, mud and AP go together like a good ole Oscar and Slaw. Podium for A Dog. (Ed. Note: This was obviously for Oakland… But I say we keep it!)
Weird opener for Marv. Like, AP, though I think he shines on this track in
Oakland San Diego. Top five for Marv. (Ed. Note: Again, pertains to Oakland, but let’s get Marv some momentum, too!)
HarDog Grant Harlan Improves Even More
16th 17th at A1, HarDog sent it to Prescott Valley, AZ for the AMA Arenacross series to get some extra seat time. It’s gonna pay off. I say he gets 15th in San Diego. You’re welcome, Troy Dog.
