2018 Season Recap:

Webb entered his rookie season carrying legitimate talent into the premier division. The fiercely competitive North Carolina native earned his first career 450SX podium at round 5 in Oakland before a shoulder injury sidelined him for five races. Webb returned to racing after the halfway point and gathered three top 10 finishes, which was good enough for 13th overall.

 

2019 Season Recap:

When he moved over to KTM, many expected Webb to come into 2019 and certainly contend for race wins. However, many were unprepared just what we were in for. Webb was dominant throughout most of the season, taking seven wins and only finishing off of the podium four times. Eli Tomac started to threaten the North Carolinian in the closing rounds, but a lot of that seemed to be due to Webb taking it easy and just managing his immense points lead. Indeed, Webb merely needed a 20th place finish to clinch the title in the Las Vegas finale, and he pulled that off with a third-place result.
