2020 Tampa Supercross Results: Tomac Takes Win, Series Lead

After stalking early leader and fastest qualifier Adam Cianciarulo for nine laps, Eli Tomac passed Cianciarulo on lap 11 (of 26) as they exited a highly unpredictable sand section at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Tomac won round 7 of the 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship Series comfortably, as he built up a 12-second lead on lap 16 when Cianciarulo crashed in the rugged whoops section. Defending Supercross Champion Cooper Webb was the runner up, with Ken Roczen rounding out the podium. Tomac takes the top spot in the standing, leaving Tampa four points ahead of Roczen, who is seven points up on Webb.

Justin Barcia recovered from a P14 opening lap to claw his way to P4, passing Dean Wilson, Malcolm Stewart, and Justin Hill on the final four laps. Hill finished in P5, as he hung around that slot the entire night. Tampa is Hill’s best performance of the year, and his third top 10 finish in a row. Wilson also had his best ride of 2020, finishing in P6.

Stewart ran in podium position from lap 2 through lap 14, when he was passed by Webb, and eventually dropped to P7. Jason Anderson started poorly in P15 on the first lap, and was able to work his way up to P8, after losing a final lap dogfight with Stewart. After his crash in the whoops, Cianciarulo dropped to P9, where he finished. Just a half-second separated P7 Stewart from P9 Cianciarulo. Justin Brayton took the final top 10 spot after running as high as P8 and as low as P12.

Broc Tickle returned to Monster Energy Supercross after serving a two-year suspension for failing to pass a test for performance-enhancing drugs. Tickle picked up a ride on the decimated JGRMX/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing team and finished in P12, just behind Zach Osborne, who finished the opening lap in last place. Blake Baggett crashed hard in his Heat, but remounted to qualify for the Main Event. However, Baggett was a no-show at the Main starting line.
