BEST IN THE PITS | 2020 SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS ROUND 17 (UPDATED)
BEST IN THE PITS | 2020 SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS ROUND 17 FINALE
The 2020 Supercross season finale is here and everybody is up early for it in Salt Lake City, Utah, as the season is finishing off with another day race. The day racing isn’t great for the track as it’s usually harder to maintain moisture. We’re expecting the race is earlier in the day, because of the NBC’s live TV schedule. Beware, the first hour of the show, starting at 12:00 Noon Pacific time and 3:00p.m. Eastern will be on the NBC Sports Network as usual, then you’ll have to switch over to the mainstream NBC channel for the second and third hours of the show. Yes, it’s complicated, but it is good for the sport of Supercross to be hosted on a mainstream channel like NBC. NBC always brings more viewers which is great for the sport. Sadly, they still aren’t letting fans enter the stadium to watch the racing or check out the pits, but luckily, MXA’s Travis Fant is on the scene and he covering all the action going on at the 2020 Salt Lake City Supercross season finale.
The Geico honda team is locked and loaded with five riders lining up today for the East/West Shootout. They have Chase Sexton and Jo Shimoda coming from the East division and Christian Craig, Jett Lawrence and Hunter Lawrence coming from the West division. Imagine if Jeremy Martin was still racing and didn’t opt out of SX a few rounds early? That would’ve been wild to see six Geico Hondas on the track!
