The 250 points leader, Colt Nichols checking out the track.
Round five of the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season started off slow. With the rain that was coming, the Dirt Wurx and Feld crews decided to keep the track covered and alter the schedule in hopes of saving the track for the night show. Now the riders will only have one timed qualifying session and from that practice we will take the top 40 straight into the night show. Things are starting to speed up now as we get ready the qualifying sessions to start. Enjoy this wet track walk gallery while you wait in anticipation for round five to get started and keep checking back in with us throughout the night for updates on results, news and photos from round five.
