Saturday’s Supercross Round 4 in Indy: How to watch, start times, schedule, TV info

1 Comment

After three winners in the first three rounds of an eventful Monster Energy AMA Supercross season, the schedule begins a residency Saturday in Indianapolis, Indiana, with Round 4 to start a four-event run at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Cooper Webb nipped Ken Roczen, who was held up by Dean Wilson, on the last lap of a controversial finish last Saturday in Round 3, which wrapped up an opening run to the 2021 season in Houston.

“Part of me wants to punch a hole in a wall, but I’ve been practicing my patience,” Roczen said after confronting Wilson postrace. “I’m going to keep it cool.”

Eli Tomac (Round 2) and Justin Barcia (Round 1) were the other winners in Houston.

Honda rider Chase Sexton was injured in the second round and will miss at least the first two rounds in Houston.
