Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Cooper Webb grabbed the holeshot and led all 23 laps to take the victory in the main event at round 4 of the 2019 AMA Supercross season at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum in Oakland, California. Webb’s win gives him the point lead heading into round 5 in San Diego.

“Oakland was a great day for me.” Webb said. “It was a perfect race. I was able to lead from start to finish. I had some pressure from Marvin [Musquin] at the end, but I held on and was able to get a win, so I’m stoked. Two in a row and the first time I’ve had the red plate in my [450SX] career is pretty amazing, so hopefully we can keep it going. We’ve got a long season ahead, but it’s been a great two weekends, so we’ll get back to work on Monday. Thank you to the Red Bull KTM team for believing in me and getting me back here. It was awesome to see KTM dominate tonight with 1-2-3 finishes and 1-2 for me and Marv the last two weekends.”

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin challenged Webb for the lead early on but had a small crash midway through the race. He rebounded and closed in on Webb on the last lap but settled for second.

“It was super intense and physically tough out there,” Musquin said. “I’m definitely getting better. This week I was able to ride all week, so I’m getting better and better. That track was definitely difficult for everyone and especially those whoops, but I figured it out in the main and I was able to pass some guys. It’s frustrating. I rode really well [and] I’m really happy, but it could have been mine tonight. But it happens, no excuses. I went down, but I was the fastest and I was able to pass those guys and be a little more consistent. I’m a little bit bummed. Finishing right behind Cooper is not fun, but it’s good, I’m making progress. Second place is good. It’s a lot of points, but I want to win for sure.”

Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS’s Blake Baggett didn’t get off to the best start in the main event, but he fought his way through the pack and into a top-five position by the halfway point. He found himself in a podium position late in the race and finished off strong to round out an all-KTM podium with third place.

“Yeah, it was not a good start,” Baggett said. “I got wheelspin right outside the gate [and] just didn't execute it right. But it is what it is; I fought my way through. I was feeling great in the middle of the race and just ran out a little in the end. [I] just kind of lost my mojo.”

Eli Tomac

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac and Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen rounded out the top five, respectively.

Ken Roczen
Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen rounded out the top five and lost the point lead, but sits only two down to Webb heading into round 5 in San Diego. “Oakland started off pretty good,” Roczen said. “I felt super good in practice and was super happy with the bike. I was confident going into the night show and happy to have first gate pick. We had a decent heat race, finishing in second. We had to do some little bike adjustments as the track changed. I didn’t have a great start at all, but fought my way up to second for a bit. I was struggling in the whoops and started feeling uncomfortable and, unfortunately, I went back to fifth. That’s not ideal, but we’re leaving healthy. We lost the point lead, but only by a couple points. It’s a long season, so if we can take this as our worst race, that’s pretty good. It’s time to regroup and hopefully get back on the podium in San Diego.”Brown Dog Wilson
Dean Wilson
Rockstar Energy/AGL/Ignite/Husqvarna’s Dean Wilson had to qualify for the main event via the LCQ after stabbing his knee into the ground in the first turn of the heat race. “It was a tough one,” Wilson said. “I had a scare in my heat [race] in the first turn jamming my knee to the ground. I had to tough it out from the LCQ to a sixth in the main. Thanks [to] everybody who came to the race and supported. See you in San Diego.”Brown Dog Wilson
Justin Barcia
Monster Energy/Yamaha Factory Racing’s Justin Barcia bruised his tailbone at Anaheim 2 the prior weekend and was able to salvage a seventh-place finish in Oakland. “Wow, what a day,” Barcia said. “I had to be really mentally tough. I rode through a lot of pain but made the best of it. Coming in I knew it would be difficult, but I was pretty optimistic about what I could handle. It was a crazy race for me. It was a difficult track. [It was] pretty rough and I just had to push through the pain. It could have been a lot worse. After last weekend’s crash, I thought I wasn’t going to be able to race, but I salvaged some points tonight. I feel like I just need to keep moving forward. Hopefully this week I can work on my body and keep feeling better. We’ll be back at it next weekend in San Diego.”Brown Dog Wilson

Chad Reed
JGRMX/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing’s Chad Reed had a small crash after hitting a downed rider’s bike, but he was able to put his RM-Z450 inside the top 10. “I really liked the Oakland track layout,” Reed said. “There were nice whoops and ruts. Unfortunately, I again struggled with one-lap speed, but I felt like I would be okay for the heat race and main event. I had a decent start in the heat race and finished fourth. I was really enjoying the main event and began to find a rhythm. I was going to try and make some moves forward. Then I landed on [Aaron] Plessinger’s bike when he crashed in a blind spot. I fought back to ninth. I’m entering a new week with confidence. I have the pieces, but I need to start out the day better and carry that into the night show. We’re heading to one of my favorite races of the series this weekend. San Diego has always been a solid hunting ground for me.”Brown Dog Wilson
