2020 AMA SX: Rnd 6 Highlights – San Diego

5 months ago | Words: Feld Entertainment, Inc. | Photos: Feld Entertainment, Inc.

Round 6 of the 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship series – designated Military Appreciation Night to honour our servicemen and women – delivered exciting moto combat on the track that significantly tightened up the 450SX Class title points. 41,573 Southern California fans inside PETCO Park witnessed Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb attack race leader, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo, several times before finally positioning himself ahead of the rookie on lap 21 of the 25-lap 450SX Class Main Event. From that point, the defending champion rode to his first win of the 2020 season, which jumped him into third place in the title points, only nine points out of the lead. In the Western Regional 250SX Class Main Event, Dylan Ferrandis took his third win in six races, giving his Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing team its fourth win in the first six Western Regional events.

The racing was just as tense in the Western Regional 250SX Class. Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Austin Forkner nabbed the holeshot but before exiting turn two Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Michael Mosiman and Pennrite Honda’s Luke Clout went past. Forkner regained the lead on Lap five, with Dylan Ferrandis slipping into second soon after. The Yamaha rider lost time with a few failed pass attempts on Forkner, then with 1:23 on the clock Ferrandis dove under the Kawasaki rider in a 90-degree turn; the incident sent Forkner temporarily off the track and too far behind to mount a counter-attack. Ferrandis took the checkers and stretched out his championship points lead with Forkner and Monster Energy / Star Yamaha Racing’s Justin Cooper filling out the podium positions.
