450 start 2020 SALT LAKE CITY ROUND 12 HEAT RACES-0864


The 2020 Supercross season has been an exciting one and Round 12 of Supercross in Salt Lake City provided a much better track and better racing for the fans to enjoy. Well at least for the fans to watch on TV. Sadly, there weren’t any fans in the stadium to cheer when Eli Tomac passed Ken Roczen, or when Cooper Webb block passed Zach Osborne, or when Chase Sexton went down and Pierce Brown ran him over. The fans would’ve been going crazy if they could’ve been there, but instead they were left to cheer from the other side of the TV. Either way, we’re still happy the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross season is finishing what it started. The Covid-19 pandemic did everything it could to stop the season from going, but we’re back racing and everyone in the stadium have to wear face masks.

450 MAIN EVENT PODIUM 2020 Salt Lake City Supercross Round 12 Heat Race winCooper Webb wins at Round 12 in Salt Lake City with Eli Tomac and Zach Osborne joining him on the podium.

In the 450 Main Event at Round 12 in Salt Lake City, Ken Roczen and Eli Tomac started the race buried in the back of the pack while Zach Osborne grabbed the holeshot and early lead. Cooper Webb was up front and moved into second on the opening lap while Eli and Ken were battling back in eight and ninth. Ken was able to get by Tomac and get into sixth and then after a few sketchy runs through the whoops, Ken was able to pass Dean Wilson and get into fifth. The pressure was on for both Ken and Eli as they fought through the field, but luckily the track wasn’t as dry so the riders didn’t have to worry about dust like they did on Sunday. Meanwhile, with 15-minutes left Osborne still had the lead with Webb and Anderson behind. Ken and Eli both passed Barcia and then they were putting pressure on Anderson for third. With just over 11-minutes left, Ken Roczen was jumping through the whoops while Eli skimmed right behind and slid up the inside to make the pass on Roczen for fourth place. On the next lap, Eli Tomac made the same move on Anderson to get into third and it looked like the rest of the pack was getting tired while Eli was staying steady. Zach Osborne held on strong in the lead for over 75% of the race, but after pressing on Osborne lap after lap, Cooper Webb was able to block pass him and gain the lead. Meanwhile, Tomac also closed up on the leaders and he passed Osborne just a lap later to get close behind Webb in second. Tomac pushed hard, but he wasn’t able to close the gap. Cooper Webb won the race, Tomac finished second and his rival in the points, Ken Roczen looked tired during the last half of the race and finished fifth.

Then, right after the finish line Chase Sexton slid out all on his own and Pierce Brown ran into him. Both riders went down and Sexton was all the way back to 17th. Colt Nichols held the lead still with his teammate, Shane McElrath close behind. Jace Owen was third, already almost six seconds back only three minutes into the race. Chase Sexton was on a mission and he was making passes quickly. Shane made the pass on Colt Nichols just five minutes into the race which gave him the lead with five minutes plus one lap to go. Chase Sexton made his way into sixth with over nine minutes to go and Garrett Marchbanks was behind him. Jalek Swoll was fourth, but he was passed by Chase Sexton and Garrett Marchbanks in a matter of two turns. Kyle Peters also passed Swoll to get into sixth. Chase had his eyes set on Martin for third who was ten seconds ahead, but Garrett Marchbanks was sticking with him with five minutes to go. Towards the end of the race, Shane McElrath’s lead extended to just over 3-seconds on his teammate, while Jeremy Martin held third and Chase Sexton kept pushing in fourth. The track was dry and slick, but much better than it was for Round 11 on Sunday. Shane went on to finish first with Sexton fourth and now they’re tied in points.

Dylan Ferrandis 2020 San Diego SupercrossDylan Ferrandis grabbed the win in San Diego at the last 250 West race and he extended his points lead.

The last 250SX West Main Event in San Diego was a cat and mouse game between Austin Forkner and Dylan Ferrandis. It was Rockstar Husqvarna rider Michael Mosiman who grabbed the holeshot and the early lead in San Diego. Michael held of Austin Forkner and Dylan Ferrandis for the first four laps while they were battling behind him. Austin was the first rider to get around Mosiman and then Ferrandis did shortly after. Once Dylan and Austin were one and two, the battle was on. Austin did everything he could and he fended off a few of the Frenchman’s attacks, but eventually Dylan was able to dive up the inside of Austin in the off camber corner and take over the lead. Sadly Austin went off the track and lost time to Dylan when he tried to re-enter. Ferrandis held on to take the win with Forkner second, Justin Cooper third and Michael Mosiman fourth.
