Jason Anderson drove almost unrivaled in the season finale of the 17th round of the Monster Energy Supercross while winning champion Eli Tomac took a night off to heal a knee injury sustained in Atlanta.
Anderson did not score – that honor went to Justin Bogle – but he was in the lead until the end of the 1st round. He managed the backlog well as he and runner-up Chase Sexton circled driver after driver while there were only six left in the lead lap at the end.
Anderson failed to catch Tomac in points, but with his fourth consecutive win and seventh of the season, he equaled Tomac the most in 2022. Tomac holds the lead with five consecutive wins this year.
The final result shows Tomac with a nine-point advantage after the final race.

Sexton had a season of ups and downs with some strong races interrupted by downs. He finished the season in a high voice, and his second place is the sixth in a row among the top five.
The biggest drama at the end of the season was the fight for third place. Three drivers, Malcolm Stewart, Justin Barcia and Marvin Musquin, had a hit in position. Stewart flew through the field and rode faster than the leaders halfway.
When Stewart made the pass for third place, Barcia rode to the side of his Husqvarna and sent Stewart to fly off the bike. Barcia won the final place on the podium.

Stewart rode up again and rode like he was obsessed. He caught up with Barcie’s rear tire in the final lap until the driver who was in the lap stopped his momentum. Stewart, however, had the final say, finishing third in the table with nine points more than Musquin and 12 ahead of Barcia.
Barcia finished the race two points behind Stewart and would have finished fourth in the standings, but he got 10 points for rough driving.
