Red Bull KTM's Aaron Plessinger took a stunning victory at the third round of the 2024 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship inside a muddy Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego. As well as taking the win on the night, Plessinger took over the lead in the championship points. Two-time champion Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing's Cooper Webb battled forward on the deep-rutted track to take second place and his first podium of the year. Troy Lee Designs Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing's Justin Barcia took the runner-up spot under clear skies on the rain-soaked track.

“It feels really, really good,” enthused Plessinger. “I guess it feels like it should. I got off to a good start and just rode a good race. Kenny [Roczen] was in front and then I just applied a little pressure and he ended up going down. Cooper [Webb] was just right there behind me keeping me on my toes, and so was Eli [Tomac, who was a lap down]. Yeah, it was a really good race, I just got a good lead and rode my own race, and stayed up. It seemed like we were lapping a lot of people, so it feels good and I’m ready to do it again next weekend.”
