250 EAST MAIN EVENT RESULTS | 2020 SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS ROUND 16

The 2020 Salt Lake City Supercross is underway and it’s the 250SX East class that is kicking off the third Wednesday of Supercross racing in Rice-Eccles Stadium. Chase Sexton currently holds a three-point lead on Shane McElrath with just two rounds of racing left to go. After tonight’s Main Event, the 250 East boys will do battle against the best from the West on Sunday in the 250 East/West Shootout and that will add to the pressure between Chase and Shane as they battle for the 250 East title. Round 16 of Supercross is also the sixth event to take place in Salt Lake City and once again we had a very track for racing. Yes, the layout is identical to Sunday’s race in multiple sections, but the dirt conditions are completely different due to the rain that fell last night which is making for better traction and deeper ruts. We also are missing the two flat hairpin corners that the riders dealt with on Sunday. Some riders loved the flat track corners and are said they’re gone while others despised them and are happy to have berms back tonight.
