Red plate-holder Ferrandis fastest qualifier overall in 250SX West.
Championship leaders Eli Tomac and Dylan Ferrandis set the benchmark in qualifying this afternoon at round 15 of Monster Energy Supercross in Utah.
A late flyer put Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Tomac atop the 450SX time-sheets with a 43.557s lap to lead Benny Bloss (Rocky Mountain KTM WPS).
Bloss managed a number of quick laps in session two, edging Rockstar Energy Husqvarna duo Jason Anderson and Dean Wilson, who went fastest in the opening session. In fifth on combined times was Ken Roczen (Team Honda HRC).
Yet another factory Husqvarna in Zach Osborne was P6, followed by defending champion Cooper Webb (Red Bull KTM) after his flow was disrupted with a fall mid-session. The top 10 was completed by Martin Davalos (Monster Energy Team Tedder KTM), Malcolm Stewart (Smartop Bullfrog Spas Honda) and Justin Brayton (Team Honda HRC).
In 250SX West, the lap-time of 43.890s set by Monster Energy Star Yamaha’s Ferrandis in session one was the quickest of all.
It was teenage rookie Jett Lawrence (Geico Honda) who led the way in the final session, which placed him second overall ahead of experienced teammate Christian Craig.
Fourth was Wednesday winner Austin Forkner (Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki) ahead of Michael Mosiman (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna), while Alex Martin (JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki) was again solid in sixth place.
There were more major names in positions seven through 10, including Cameron McAdoo (Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki), Justin Cooper (Monster Energy Star Yamaha), Brandon Hartranft (TLD Red Bull KTM) and Hunter Lawrence (Geico Honda).
