2020 Arlington Supercross | Kickstart



Well, that was a wild one. The 2020 Arlington Supercross will likely be remembered for being the most chaotic round of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Series, as a number of big crashes, takedowns, and race wins all took place in Texas. Maybe it was the track, the Triple Crown format, the fact that riders are eager to get big results in the middle of the season, or everything all together. Whatever the reason was, it made for an interesting day that will have a lasting impact on the series as a whole.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty with photos and captions, here are a few things to point out…

Adam Cianciarulo will undergo surgery to plate his busted collarbone, which will help expedite the recovery time. We figure the Monster Energy Kawasaki rider will be back on the starting line before the end of SX because those few gate drops will help acclimate him to the pace of the class before the summer’s Nationals.

Road 2 Recovery has set up a donation fund to help Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM rider Brian Moreau as he starts his recovery from a fractured C7 vertebra. Seriously, if you have the means, please send something to the young rider. The TLD KTM team didn’t make the drive to Texas because their East Coast rider, Pierce Brown, wasn’t ready to race but they are expected to be at Atlanta.

We were surprised at the turnout for the Triple Crown, especially in the 250 Class with 54 total riders, because only 22 riders were confirmed for the night’s races. It’s obvious that racers want to race, even if the odds are against them.

Benny Bloss sat out Arlington to recover a pulled muscle on the side of his torso. The Rock River Yamaha rider showed us the bruising and with the green and purple tones, he looked like Barney The Dinosaur. We expect to see him back in the next few weeks.
