2020 ATLANTA SUPERCROSS: 250 QUALIFYING

Chase Sexton is coming alive as the 2020 Monster Endergy Supercross season reaches the halfway point in Atlanta, Georgia. After securing the win in the 250 East Triple Crown event last week in Arlington, Texas, he came into Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta looking good. He captured the fastest qualifying time, then won his heat over Kawasaki’s Jordon Smith and Husqvarna’s RJ Hampshire. His most fierce comptition will likely come from heat one, where Jeremy Martin scored the win over round one winner Shane McElrath. For extended coverage of the 2020 Atlanta Supercross, click here.
