Attrition was the theme of the night on Saturday in Arlington, Texas, at round 8 of the 2020 Monster Energy/AMA Supercross Series, inside AT&T Stadium—the second of three scheduled Triple Crown events on this year’s calendar. The first to suffer from the night’s theme was Monster Energy Kawasaki’s perennial fast qualifier Adam Cianciarulo, who went down off of a Dragon’s Back and crashed into the face of the ensuing triple, breaking his left collarbone. He’ll be out a few weeks.
450SX Summary: The 450 class is shaping up to be a battle between three riders. Those racers are Ken Roczen, Eli Tomac and Cooper Webb. Eli Tomac got to wear the red plate for only the fourth time in his career as they lined up for the Triple Crown, where the riders would face off for three main events. By the end of the night, Tomac’s hopes of keeping that point lead improved dramatically. Not only did he win the overall, but Adam Cianciarulo suffered a crash in practice and broke his collarbone, then Cooper Webb crashed in the same spot in the second Main event. Webb would not be able to start the final race.

250SX East Summary: Chase Sexton got even with Shane McElrath as the 250 East riders rolled into AT&T Stadium just west of Dallas, Texas for round two of their series within the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross season. All eyes were on the two of them after they went 1-2 at Tampa last weekend. This was a Triple crown event. That means the 22 top riders were prequalified earlier in the day before three separate main events. When it was all over, RJ Hampshire, Sexton and McElrath had wins, but it was Sexton with the overall. He would also become the co-owner of the red number plate of the points leader.
