450 OVERALL QUALIFYING RESULTS | 2020 SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS ROUND 15
The 2020 Monster Energy Supercross series has only three rounds to go. In the 450 class you have Eli Tomac who has broke out with a decent size points lead to capture his first 450 Supercross championship. With Ken Roczen racing with the Shingles, it has made his results suffer to battle for the championship. However, Cooper Webb, 2019 450 Supercross champion has been focused and on fire to bridge the points gap on Tomac. In order for Webb to pass Tomac in points, Tomac would have to crash out or DNF a round. We will say that Tomac has been known to throw it away in the past. Hopefully, he has learned from the past lessons and captures the number 1 plate.
Riders like Dean Wilson and Blake Baggett have really been shining in 450 qualifying here in Salt Lake. Here is who took control of 450 qualifying for round 15.
