2020 AMA SX: Rnd 2 Highlights – St Louis

1 month ago | Words: Supercross Media | Photos: Supercross Media

St. Louis, Mo., The second round of the 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship series was an emotional one in front of 51,841 fans inside The Dome at America’s Center. Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen earned his first 450SX Class win after what many had thought would be a career-ending injury in 2017. Three seasons worth of events, 50 rounds of which he had competed in 26, had come and gone since the German rider was able to get back on top for his 12th career win in 75 starts. Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing’s Justin Barcia fought his way to second place to hold onto the championship points lead and 2018 Monster Energy Supercross Champion, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson nabbed third place.

Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Austin Forkner also had an emotional victory in the Western Regional 250SX Class as it was his first since an injury ended his 2019 season while leading the championship. The win came in front of his home state crowd. Monster Energy/Star Yamaha Racing’s Justin Cooper finished in second place to earn enough points to retain the points lead. Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull KTM’s Brandon Hartranft earned his first podium with third.

Taking no time off in the weekend racing action, the series heads back to Anaheim, California for round three on January 18th.
