The 250 West Division is back on the Atlanta Motor Speedway infield for the 14th round of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season. The massive Supercross track features almost the same layout lanes but with completely different rhythm throughout and now the giant track’s direction has been flipped, heading the opposite direction from Saturday’s race. The track is a lot drier too, in fact, many of the racers are describing the conditions to be very hot for their taste compared to the round prior. But the more controlled weather conditions provides closer racing and we’re looking forward to it. So who do you think will grab the win at Atlanta 2? Will Justin Cooper continue his points lead on the rest of the class or will we see another surprise amongst the rest of the 250 class and the very surprising rookies? Scroll down below as we report LIVE from Atlanta Motor Speedway for the 14th round of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season and the second of three rounds held in Hampton, Georgia.

The sunset created some epic lighting in Georgia.

The 250 Main Event took off and it was Nate Thrasher who took the holeshot but Justin Cooper who made the pass for the lead. In third place sat Garrett Marchbanks and Hunter Lawrence sat in fourth. Cameron McAdoo had one of the gnarliest crashes we’ve ever seen, rag dolling into the face of the bridge and getting his feet caught in the handlebars. The race was red flagged and Cameron lined back up on the gate. The race took off again and it was Cameron grabbed the lead but was squeezed out by Garrett Marchbanks. Justin Cooper grabbed the lead with Nate Thrasher in second and Marchbanks in third. Cameron ran in fourth place with no number plate and a bent bike but didn’t give up. Justin Cooper looked incredibly smooth as he led the race. Cameron began to make passing attempts on Marchbanks but Garrett wasn’t going to make it easy for Cameron. Cameron got around Marchbanks in the sand section and proceeded to race towards Nate thrasher. In half a lap, Cameron was already side-by-side with Nate Thrasher. 10 minutes remained and Justin Cooper already had a three and a half second lead. Cameron made the pass on Nate through the whoops. Back in fourth place, Hunter Lawrence made the pass on Garrett Marchbanks. With four minutes remaining, Justin Cooper’s lead grew to over seven seconds. Hunter Lawrence closed the gap on Nate Thrasher for third and would be right behind the Star Yamaha rider with two minutes remaining. Hunter got around Nate for third place and started to put the pressure on Cameron McAdoo and eventually took away the position. At this point, you could tell Cameron was running out of energy but still held on in the race. Justin Cooper became victorious and won the Main with Hunter Lawrence getting second and the very banged up Cameron McAdoo finishing in third.
