Slawdictions for Southwick: RJ Takes the Overall

Based in St. George, Utah, Amped has quickly solidified themselves as the lead distributor for electric bikes, including our favorites, the Sur-Ron Light Bee and Talaria Sting, both of which you will now be able to demo at ALL Shred Tour stops. And we’ll even give you $100 off your next order when entering the code “vurbmoto” upon checkout.

Following a 99.8% accuracy rate in Monster Energy Supercross, Slaw is back to bring you some flaming hot bold predictions for the ENTIRE 11 round AMA Pro Motocross Championship. Stay tuned all summer long.

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, I will review my picks from The Bud before getting into The Wick.

Prediction | Sexton Runner-Up

Let’s all breathe a sigh of relief that Sexton is back. Let’s call a bun a bun: Jett was DOMINATING everyone. Chase pushed him at the opener, so the boys of summer are back. Do I think he challenges Jett right away? No, no I do not. That much time off will have consequences, but I do think he finishes runner-up at the Bud.

As I said, runner-up in the first moto and third overall. Great job by me.

Slawdiction: 100 out of 10.

Prediction | Anderson Top 5

Another rider back is El Hombre. Mr. Fried himself. Anderson been trying to play mind tricks on Slaw regarding how ready he is on the media of socials. Slaw ain’t having it. JA will get top five this weekend. LEAD SLAW LOCK OF THE WEEK.

I told y’all not to sleep on the Fried. Great return for JA.

Slawdiction: 100 out of 10.

Prediction | Masterpool OVERALL Podium

Oh, yeah. I’m going there. Ty and the Bud go together like Slaw and a classic Oscar on Fourth of July weekend. Dude IS RedBud and I’m here for it. Not a moto podium, I’m predicting an overall podium.

Bike problems. Doesn’t count.

Slawdiction: Incomplete.

Prediction | Hunter Wins Again


Crash. Doesn’t count.

Slawdiction: Incomplete.

Prediction | Deegan Takes a Moto

I like Hunter for the overall, but the Deegs is very, very good here. He’s coming into his own and I like him for at the very least a moto win. If Hunter doesn’t win, Deegs will. Heard it here first.

Hmmm. Read that last sentence again. #amamediamemberoftheyear

Slawdiction: 100 out of 10.

On to The Wick, the crown jewel of the series.

Local Top 10

Some Mass Hole named Bobby comes straight from Dunkin’ to score a top 10 overall. Stamp it.

The Rippahhhhhhh Returns

If you aren’t pumped to see Jimmy D back in action for his home race, then you don’t know moto. Jimmy is good people and the Mass Holes are going to go crazy for him. I got him for at least a top 15 in the 250 Class.

Hunter DOESN’T Win

Hunta got that dawg in him. Don’t you doubt that. BUT, I think his ribs are hurting him. AND his arm. Southwick is NOT the race to be banged up. I DO think he still scores an overall podium.

The Streak Is OVER

Troy Dog wrote a shit blog earlier this week about how Jett will go 22-0. Don’t read it. Jett is amazing, no doubt, but I don’t see him going undefeated on moto wins. Overalls? Possibly. Don’t know why, but I have a feeling Ferrandis or Sexton ends the streak this weekend. Call me crazy.

RJ Takes 250 Overall

Yes, I’m aware of RJ’s history, but I did just list him as my fav Husky rider and Slaw stands behind his dudes. #slawnation
