LS2 RACE Report: OAKLAND, 2023


JOSH CARTWRIGHT

Josh Cartwright has been really opening some eyes so far in this 2023 Supercross season. Saturday in Oakland was no different as he was ready to show his potential once again. Riding loose and fast, Josh took to the extremely rutted track with ease. Josh got out front in all three of his sessions and was clearly on another level. He qualified a very impressive 19th fastest overall and was excited to go racing. When the gate dropped for his Heat, Josh launched off one of the outside gates and immediately tucked into the first corner. Josh was running right around the top 5 and doing everything he could to keep the hungry pack behind him. He would end up 9th and go straight to the Main. Josh unfortunately did not get the jump he was looking for when the Main began, and another mishap pushed him all the way to the back. Nevertheless he would put his Head down and end up just one spot outside the top 20 by the time the checkers flew.
