2020 ATLANTA SUPERCROSS | BEST IN THE PITS & PRESS DAY ACTION
The 2020 Atlanta Supercross is set to go inside of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium and MXA is in Atlanta, Georgia, to bring our viewers coverage of the event. Cooper Webb had all eyes on him during the Atlanta SX Press Day. After his big crash last weekend in Arlington, we knew Cooper Webb would be sore and beat up coming into round nine of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross series. Although he only did a few laps, the defending Champion looked good. Coming into Atlanta, the 450SX class has been significantly reduced due to injuries. Adam Cianciarulo is out with a broken collarbone, Zach Osborne is out with a broken wrist and bruised lungs, Broc Tickle has a hand injury,

Supercross TV personality, Ralph Sheheen spent sometime with ClubMX Yamaha’s Joey Crown. Ralph is smart and he needs to get to know Joey as he has been running up front and getting lots of TV time lately.

The pits are located indoors in Atlanta which is nice for the truck drivers and crew members because they don’t have to set up the big awnings on their rigs.
