2020 AMA MOTOCROSS NATIONAL POINT STANDINGS AFTER ROUND 7
With the seventh round of the AMA Nationals coming to an end, the season has shown that points are earned in big chunks, and especially for the 450 class, this was apparent. The weather was hot, humid, and the track was sandy and fast. It was clear that whoever got the holeshot in the motos would have a giant advantage over the rest of the field. With the most exciting season of Pro Motocross in recent memory, we knew anything could happen and some very intense racing would occur. Typically, it’s surprising to see rookies battling at the front with 450 veterans, however Adam Cianciarulo and Chase Sexton are the real deal and they’re not looking to settle for anything less than first. Adam Cianciarulo managed to get the early lead off the start in both motos and it was apparent how strong and suited he is now on the bigger bike. Chase Sexton held down the fastest lap times in qualifying so we expected him to perform well when it came time to race.
This outdoors season has proved to us that nothing is simple. Just when you think someone has the lead, in the blink of an eye, they can drop several positions. Usually the 450 class has more consistency at the front while the 250 class is more of a shake up. But, this year the tides have turned and it’s the 450 class that has seen multiple different winners and upset victories, while the battle for the red plate in the 250 class between Jeremy Martin and Dylan Ferrandis has been slightly more predictable.

450 POINT STANDINGS (ROUND 7 OF 9)
We have to admire the patience that Zach has when it comes to racing. In the first moto, 450 rookies Adam Cianciarulo and Chase Sexton were battling it out and Zach quietly waited till 5 minutes left when he made his charge. Flying passed the two front runners within a lap, and making it look easy, Zach would obtain a first moto win and would have similar results in the second moto. In the second moto, Adam led the pack after Justin Barcia’s holeshot led into a tip over in the sand. Unfortunately, Barcia wasn’t the only one who was going to play in the Florida sand as Adam joined in after having a run-in with Marvin Musquin. Zach would then make the pass for first place in the latter half of the race through precise line choice. He felt the heat of Tomac with only two laps left and Osborne gave it everything he had at that point to pull away from the defending champion and win the race. Osborne’s 1-1 finishes earned him a comfortable amount of points to keep the red plate.
250 POINT STANDINGS (ROUND 7 OF 9)
With the 2020 Pro Motocross Season coming near an end, we focus on the two that have been battling for the entirety of the 2020 season in the 250 class. After beating Jeremy Martin on his own turf at Millville, we were excited to see what tricks Dylan Ferrandis had in his bag to keep Jeremy Martin from fulfilling his redemption story. Unfortunately for Jeremy, Dylan had plenty of tricks that involved getting good starts, having good teammates, and straight-up leaving everyone in the dust. The Frenchman is fast and there is no doubt about it because he would later get both moto wins at the WW Ranch.
