SEE THE 450 ACTION AT THE 2020 ARLINGTON SUPERCROSS IN UNDER 12 MINUTES
Eli Tomac gained three more points on Ken Roczen at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and while Eli and Kenny are still close enough for the 2020 AMA Supercross Championship that they both could still win the title, other riders weren’t as lucky. Cooper Webb’s crash in the third moto of the three-moto format tumbled him back to tenth for the night (he got tenth because his first two motos were good enough to hold onto a top placing even though he had to go to the hospital to be examined after back flipping on to the plywood covered concrete floor of the stadium). Cooper reported from the hospital that he was very lucky to come away with a hematoma and deep bone bruising to his pelvis as well as his sacrum. This on the heels of Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo crashing in the exact same spot in qualifying. Adam ended up with a broken collarbone. The Dragonback produced Webb’s and Cianciarulo’s crashes, which had an eery similarity to the Jett Lawrence crash where he nose wheelied into the face of the next jump. Broc Tickle reportedly broke his hand in qualifying and sat out Arlington. Tough break for the rider who just returned to the series one week ago after sitting out for two years with an FIM suspension. Even worse for the JGR Suzuki team, where Broc was a fill-in rider for Joey Savatgy and Fredrik Noren.
