2020 SUPERCROSS SEASON POINT STANDINGS AFTER ROUND 14
The 2020 Monster Energy Supercross season has just concluded Round 14 of the season at the Salt Lake City Supercross and once again, the riders put on a very entertaining show for the fans watching at home on TV. In the 450 Main Event, Ken Roczen pushed hard and challenged Webb for the lead in both the Heat race and Main Event, but in the second half he unfortunately ran out of steam again and dropped backwards. The return of the 250 West Coast riders was highly anticipated after their four month break. The Australian brothers, Jett Lawrence and Hunter Lawrence had a lot of eyes on them, but it was Austin Forkner who stole the show in the 250 West division by taking the win.

450 OVERALL POINT STANDINGS (AFTER ROUND 14 OF 17)
Zach Osborne crossed the holeshot line first, but Cooper Webb snuck into the lead in the next corner. Ken Roczen was right behind him and it was like a carbon copy of the Heat race with Roczen and Webb out front. Eli Tomac got buried on the start and he was outside of the top ten on the first lap. We expected Eli to pass through the pack quickly, but he took his time and the other riders made him work for it. Ken was faster than Cooper through the whoops, but eventually, after the halfway mark, Ken ran out of steam and Cooper Webb pulled away. Ken dropped back to fifth by the end of the race while Eli Tomac made his way up to third and Zach Osborne held onto second behind Webb.
250 WEST COAST POINT STANDINGS (AFTER ROUND 7 OF 9)
Justin Cooper grabbed the holeshot, but just like in every other race throughout the night, the rider who was on the inside in turn one had the inside line for turn two and they would always take the lead. Austin Frokner did just that and he never looked back. Austin went on to win the race and take over second in the point standings. Dylan Ferrandis was further back on the start and he made passes through the pack slowly. Justin Cooper was second early, but Cameron McAdoo was able to get around him and hold onto the number two position until Ferrandis passed him late in the race. McAdoo finished third with Justin Cooper fourth and Michael Mosiman fifth. Both Jett Lawrence and his brother Hunter Lawrence had their crashes and they finished 11th and 13th. The 250 West boys will race again on Sunday and then meet the East at the 250 East/West showdown one week later.
250 EAST COAST POINT STANDINGS (AFTER ROUND 7 OF 9)
Chase Sexton and Shane McElrath came into Round 13 of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross season tied in points with three rounds to go. Shane was on a roll after winning back-to-back Main Events in Salt Lake City on Sunday and Wednesday prior to Round 13, but Chase Sexton wasn’t going to give up. The first Main Event started off great for both riders, Chase grabbed the holeshot and Shane McElrath was right behind him in second. But the race soon turned sour for Chase as Shane dove up the inside and made an aggressive move to get by Sexton and push him off the track. Chase then got on the track in fifth and was charging again on the first lap when he landed on Enzo Lopes as he tried to triple out of a rhythm section. Then, Garrett Marchbanks crashed all by himself in the rhythm section and sadly he was hurting bad and wasn’t able to get off the track quickly. As a result of Garrett’s crash, the race had to be red flagged so that the medical crew could take care of Marchbanks. Then, the race was restarted and since the leader, Shane McElrath hadn’t completed a full three laps yet. After the restart Shane McElrath grabbed the holeshot, this time with Sexton behind him. Chase then followed Shane until he ran into a lapped rider and went down. After this, Sexton cruised home to a victory on a challenging track while Shane went on to finish second.
