Chase Sexton Wins in Atlanta

Chase Sexton Wins in Atlanta

Chase Sexton grabbed his third win of the Supercross season during Round 13 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday. Sexton sits third in the championship points standings. Eli Tomac continues to lead but not by much. Cooper Webb gained much needed points at Atlanta to edge closer to Tomac.

In the 450 main event, Ken Roczen had the holeshot. Chase Sexton made quick work getting to the lead on the first lap. Sexton maintained that lead through the race with riders battling behind him. Barcia had moved up to third and got around Roczen for second. Roczen settled for a third-place podium finish.

In the Eastern Regional 250 class, Hunter Lawrence was out front ahead of Haiden Deegan. Deegan jumped to the lead, but Lawrence wasn’t having it, reclaiming the top spot. Lawrence soon got out of shape in a rhythm section and Deegan was back out front. Lawrence took a couple of laps to get back out front, passing Deegan again. Soon Deegan’s Yamaha Star Racing teammate Jordon Smith made a pass for second. Lawrence won the race with Smith second and Deegan third on the podium. Lawrence leads Deegan in the point standings.
