450 OVERALL RACE RESULTS | LORETTA LYNN PRO MOTOCROSS NATIONAL 2
The 2020 Loretta Lynn Pro Motocross National #2 is in the books and coming into it, riders like Eli Tomac, Jason Anderson, Marvin Msuquin, Adam Cianciarulo, Justin Barcia, Chase Sexton and more were looking forward to a second chance at racing on the famous Loretta Lynn track to get some redemption at round two of the 2020 AMA Pro Motocross season and overtake Zach Osborne in the point standings. Surprisingly, there was drama before the gate even dropped for Moto 1. Headlining the qualifying sessions were the issues that current 450 class points leader, Zach Osborne suffered at the beginning of the only 450 Group A Qualifying session of the day. Hot off his first win at the season opener, Zach Osborne’s bike wouldn’t start when it was time to fire it up for the practice. Luckily, the AMA allowed Zach to ride in the Group B practice session and his team was able to fix the bike just in time for it. Zach was still late to the practice, but he managed to lay down a fast lap and score 10th gate pick for the first moto today. In other news, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, experienced heavy rain over the last few days which created muddy conditions for the riders to deal with. Luckily, the track crew was able to manage the weather in the best way possible. The track was muddy for qualifying, but not too bad. Unfortunately, rain before the motos began made it even tougher for the riders. See below for the 450 results the the Loretta Lynn National #2.
