SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS ROUND 13: 250 EAST MAIN- SEXTON WINS!!

Garrett Marchbanks 2020 SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS ROUND 3 -2531
Garrett Marchbanks took second place in the first heat race.

Supercross returned to Rice -Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City for round 13. In the 250 East class, the battle has shoe horned into a fist fight between Chase Sexton and Star Yamaha’s Shane McElrath. Sexton held the points lead heading into Salt Lake City, but double wins have McElrath pulling into a tie going into round 13. The track is busy, muddy, and the transitions between the jumps are rutted and hacked.

HEAT ONE

In heat one McElrath ripped a giant holey and walked the dog to an easy win. Pro Circuit’s Garrett Marchbanks moved  into second place and stayed there for the duration.  The leaders lapped up to fourth place in a short heat race.

THE 250 SX FINAL

The last race before the break had Sexton hole shot, then hurl himself off the track and then crashed. McElrath has the lead, followed by Shimoda.

The Race gets Red Flagged when Garrett Marchbanks goes down hard.

The rain has restarted. This could get ugly.

Chase Sexton benefitted from the restart where he augured in on the first start and was way back. He dominated  the second start after Shane McElrath tossed it away.

McElrath hole shots, Sexton tucks right behind him. Track is lubricated, but is holding up. McElrath and Sexton are boxing hard, as the rain continues- they’re stretching it out big time. Swoll is in third, Nichols is in fourth.  The two leaders have a 14-second lead, then McElrath slides out.  Sexton stretches it into a 16-second lead. Nichols is third, Pierce Brown is fourth.

Chase Sexton takes a huge win (and a lucky one!), McElrath gets hosed, but comes home in second and Colt Nichols takes home the final podium slot.
