450 MAIN EVENT RESULTS | 2021 ATLANTA SUPERCROSS 3
The premier class finishes off their 15th round in Atlanta Motor Speedway for the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season. The championship is coming down to the wire between Ken Roczen and Cooper Webb as now there are only 13 points separating Ken Roczen from Cooper Webb’s lead after Ken Roczen made a huge leap forward winning Atlanta 2. But there are also plenty of contenders to win Atlanta 3 such as Eli Tomac who won Atlanta 1, Jason Anderson, Chase Sexton and more riders who show their strengths on extremely long tracks. Jason Anderson was the fastest qualifier with Chase Sexton and Ken Roczen coming in second and third. The top three were considerably faster than the rest of the pack during qualifying as fourth place almost a whole second slower. So do you think Cooper Webb will put on a stronger performance than Atlanta 2 and increase the points gap in the championship? Or will another victor arise and get the last win in Atlanta? Find out down below as we report LIVE from Atlanta Motor Speedway for the 15th round of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season.
