450 MAIN EVENT RESULTS | 2021 ATLANTA SUPERCROSS 1

The premier class is back for some more racing but this time they’re located in Georgia for the 13th round of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season. Cooper Webb had a flawless run in Arlington making it the second time we’ve seen the number 2 claim another flawless residency in the 2021 season. Cooper now sits 15 points ahead of rival Ken Roczen while Eli Tomac sits back in third, 41 points behind the leader. It’s now or never for the number 94 of Ken Roczen as the championship is creeping up on the final rounds of the season, giving the German rider less time to score more points for the championship. The Atlanta Motor Speedway infield was transformed into a Supercross in a matter of days but with rain on the horizon, press day was canceled and the track was covered in tarps. The rain came back in the morning of race day, canceling the second qualifying session, making us wonder if the Georgia clay will turn into a mudder or if we’ll see the same thing happen at several of the other rounds we assumed were going to be swampfest. So who do you think will win at the first round of the Atlanta races? Will Cooper continue his stretch in the points or will Ken Roczen catch up? Or will we see someone else like Jason Anderson, Aaron Plessinger, or Eli Tomac walk home with trophy in hand? Either way, we’re excited for the racing this evening so scroll down below to find out what happens as we report LIVE from Atlanta Motor Speedway for the 13th round in the season.
