2020 GLENDALE SUPERCROSS 250 OVERALL RESULTS
The West Coast 250 Supercross class is heating up. Justin Cooper had the red plate coming into the forth round of the AMA Monster Energy Supercross series with a 12 point lead over his Star Racing Yamaha teammate, Dylan Ferrandis. Ferrandis was the center of attention as he got booed from the Anaheim 2 crowd for bumping rubber with the Gecio Honda riders.
The Triple Crown Format is back for 2020 and Glendale will be hosting the first of three Triple Crown events this season. The other two Triple Crown races will be held in Arlington, Texas, on February 22nd, and at the penultimate round in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 25th. It’s always interesting to see how the riders perform in the shorter three-race format. For a full breakdown on how it works, read below:
Triple Crown format breakdown:
The top 18 from the overall fastest qualifying times during the day will advance straight to the main event. There will then be an LCQ that add four more riders for a total of 22 racers in the main event. During the night show, there won’t be any heat races or LCQ’s but each class will have three main events. The 250SX class will compete in three 10-minute main events, while the 450SX class will compete in three 12-minute main events. An Olympic-style scoring method will be used to determine an overall winner in each class from all three main events where the lowest combined score at the end will be awarded the overall win.
