450 Words: All-Time 450MX Wins and Podiums
Trying to chase down statistics in supercross and motocross can sometimes lead you down a rabbit hole you’ll never emerge from. For some reason or another, stats just aren’t a big part of the sport when compared to other mainstream sports. Baseball, for example, has an entire company (Elias Sports Bureau) in charge of keeping statistics and records. Hey, at least we have the Vault. (Talk about going down a rabbit hole and not coming up for a few days.)
Long story short, one of the few readily available stats we do have is all-time career wins and podiums. Once a year (sometimes twice, sometimes not at all) we put out a list of all-time wins and podiums in the premier class. With the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship already underway, we figured we’d revisit the list so you can keep track of it all year.
Career 450MX Wins
- Anyone think RC is ever getting caught? Yeah, he could hold this record for quite some time.
- One record Dungey probably could have gotten is all-time podiums. Dungey trailed RC by just 15 entering the year, and considering in 75 career Pro Motocross starts he’s landed on the podium 69 times (92 percent), Dungey would have passed RC in 2018.
- Only three riders—Eli Tomac, Justin Barcia, and Josh Grant—that raced Hangtown have won an overall in 450MX. Ken Roczen (15) and Trey Canard (1) missed Hangtown due to injury.
- With his sixth-career win at Hangtown, Eli Tomac moved into a tie with John Dowd, Damon Bradshaw, Ron Lechien, and Marty Tripes for 21st all-time.
- Tomac currently has 20 career podiums, which places him 21st all-time, tied with Jimmy Weinert.
- Roczen currently leads all active riders in all-time podiums with 29, he is out for the 2017 season due to injury, though.
- Justin Barcia is second amongst riders currently racing with 17 career podiums. Canard also has 17, but he’s out due to injury.
- Josh Grant and Marvin Musquin both earned their sixth career podium finish at Hangtown, moving them out of a tie with Jason Anderson, Broc Tickle, Warren Reid, Mike Bell, Jimmy Bell, and Ernesto Fonseca.
And just because, here is the all-time wins and podiums records for the 125/250 class.
