Introduction: The Georgia race is one of the special stops of each calendar year and since this race is the halfway point of the 17-stop schedule, riders know it’s key to get a good result and carry that momentum through the long stretch ahead.
450SX Summary: Ken Roczen grabbed the holeshot at the 2020 Atlanta Supercross and never looked back, taking the win by over 13 seconds. Had Roczen glanced over his shoulder, he would have seen chaos on the track. With the finishing order of Roczen, Justin Barcia, Cooper Webb, and Eli Tomac may not sound particularly unlikely, how it got there was utterly unpredictable. A hard clay track with a loose top provided unpredictable action the entire Main Event.

250SX East Summary: Coming into the 2020 Atlanta Supercross, the 250SX East division points are tied between Star Racing Yamaha’s Shane McElrath and Geico Honda’s Chase Sexton. Both riders have a win and a second so far this year and they both have the red plate tonight at the Atlanta SX. But after tonight, there will be only one red plate holder. Who will it be? Rj Hampshire, Jeremy Martin, Jordon Smith and Garrett Marchbanks are also looking to make it interesting and grab a win tonight. The track has been a tough one for the riders so far today but it’s not because of the long whoops or deep sand, but the riders are mentioning the unique Atlanta dirt is really what is challenging the riders.
