As the 2020 Monster Energy/AMA Supercross Series nears the end of its western swing, the cream is rising to the top in both classes. In Oakland’s RingCentral Coliseum, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac and Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha’s Dylan Ferrandis both earned their second wins of the 2020 season, in similar fashion.
Summary: The night show of the 2020 Oakland Supercross is underway and the stars of the 450SX class are giving it their all on the challenging Oakland Supercross track. Ken Roczen is coming into round five of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross season with an eight point lead over his rival, Eli Tomac. The defending Champion, Cooper Webb is twenty points behind, but he looked fast in qualifying and being that he won here in 2019, we aren’t counting him out tonight.

Summary: In the 250SX class, JGR/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing’s Alex Martin got the holeshot, but Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Austin Forkner fought his way by on the second lap, with Ferrandis in tow. Ferrandis hounded Forkner for about half the race before shoving his way by Forkner using basically the same move Tomac used twice in the 450SX main event that came later.
The crowd booed Ferrandis on the podium for winning.
Forkner hung on for second in front of round-one winner Justin Cooper and Martin.
Ferrandis now leads the points standings by 2 over Cooper with Forkner another 8 points back as the 250SX West series heads to its final round before it goes on hiatus for the 250SX East series to start up in Tampa, Florida, in two weeks.
