2020 Salt Lake City 1 Supercross Preview (with Track Map)

After a long break from racing due to the government response to the COVID-19 virus, the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Championship Series is back. The final seven rounds of the Supercross series will all be held at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City. The races will be held on consecutive Sundays and Wednesdays starting on May 31.

While the track will be basically the same design for all seven rounds, there will be some modifications. Also, the 40 riders who will be lined up for the two Heat races will be unchanged. Further, there will be no fans in the stadium. While it is not something we would have recognized at the start of the season, promoter Feld, the AMA, the teams, the riders, and the Utah state government have come up with a workaround that we’re glad to have.

Eli Tomac leads the series by three points over Ken Roczen. Lurking nearby in the standings are defending Supercross Champion Cooper Webb, 26 points behind Roczen, and Justin Barcia, who sits two points behind Webb. With seven rounds remaining to be contested, all four riders have a shot at the 2020 title.

The break since March has allowed many injured riders to return to the series. Among the recovered and racing in Salt Lake City are Justin Brayton, Adam Cianciarulo, Kyle Cunningham, Fredrik Norén, Zach Osborne, and Broc Tickle. Unfortunately, we won’t be seeing Justin Bogle, Marvin Musquin, or Joey Savatgy, as they are still recovering from injuries.
