The 2020 Supercross series is expected to start again on May 31 in Salt Lake City in an announcement that is due to be released tonight at 11pm UK time. It’s not known if it will be held behind closed doors with no spectators and a skeleton crew or team personnel.
After the series was axed following the tenth round in Daytona due to the Coronavirus, organisers said they would continue racing when they could. However, a national series in the USA is tough as different states make their own rules.
Some want the lockdown to last for months and some states such as Arizona and Utah want to open as soon as possible.
Orlando and St. Loius are thought to be bidding for events, but it seems the return will be in Utah on May 31.
Currently, Eli Tomac leads the series on 226 points from Ken Roczen on 223, Cooper Webb on 197, Justin Barcia on 170, and Jason Anderson on 170. That’s a Kawasaki from Honda, KTM, Yamaha and Husky. So there’s something to play for from the biggest five brands.
Champ Chase Sexton leads the East Coast 250s by 98 points from Shane McElrath on 88 and RJ Hampshire on 80 and Garrett Marchbanks on 79. In the West Coast series, champ Dylan Ferrandis is on 135 from Justin Cooper on 128, Austin Forkner on 122 and Brandon Hartranft on 110.
