After the 2020 Supercross series was hauled after the tenth round in Daytona heading into the Indy Supercross, there has been a lot of speculation where and when Supercross would resume, if even this year. With the effects due to Coronavirus, state governors are all unsure of what the right thing to do is. Some want the lockdowns to last for months on end like California and New York and some states such as Arizona and Utah want to open for business as soon as possible. We don’t know who is right, and eventually, when this is all over we will know who to point the finger at. We are just happy that Supercross found a home sooner than we thought.
If you heard rumors that the next Supercross rounds were going to be held in Arizona, you were right. If you heard it was going to Orlando, Florida, you were right, and if you speculated it was going to be held in St. Loius, you were right. Feld was looking anywhere they could to get the series up and running again.
It is no secret that teams and riders all want to stay safe and local, which is why Arizona was the best option for Supercross. However, Arizona already had bigger events that got first dibs on the date slots. So, Salt Lake City was the next best bet.
We don’t have many details, but what we do know is there will a Supercross round held on May 31, 2020, inside Rice–Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah. We are unsure if the media or fans will be able to attend, or if there will be multiple races on the same weekend or just one, but we do know they will be racing.
It is no secret that some racers and teams want to get back to work and racing as soon as possible. Cooper Webb was very passionate on Social Media about wanting to get back to racing, but saying some riders and teams say they don’t have enough time to prepare. We have a hunch one of the riders is Ken Roczen. Why? We aren’t sure as you would think he wants to get back into the points lead.
We expect an official press release by tomorrow evening. Stay tuned.
