Despite his comfortable 22-point lead going into the final round of the championship Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb didn’t play it safe at Salt Lake City. Making it a perfect night for the team Webb delivered his eighth victory of the season ahead of teammate Marvin Musquin.

Confirming MOTOREX’ position as Nr. 1 lubricant brand when it comes to Supercross Racing, MOTOREX-backed riders have taken the prestigious AMA Supercross 450SX title on six occasions from the last seven seasons, along with one closely fought runner-up result.
In their historic first Supercross season The TLD/GASGAS Factory Team had also reason to celebrate with Justin Barcia rounds out the 450SX championship in a strong 4th position aboard his MOTOREX-maintained MC 450F while Michael Mosiman finished an equally strong 5th in the 250SX East series.

Cooper Webb: “It’s been a heck of a year with everything in the world going on, but we dug deep this year and stayed the course. It’s been an incredible journey, a hard-fought season with a lot of hard races but this is all worth it right here. Being a two-time champion is incredible and to get the win tonight is the cherry on top. I’m speechless, this is incredible.”
