With sweeps in style, the AMA Monster Energy Supercross Series will hit the midpoint of a three-race residence in Arlington, Texas, with the points leader feeling good about Round 11.
Cooper Webb moved atop the championship standings past Ken Roczen with his victory Saturday at AT&T Stadium, the KTM rider’s third victory in the past four races.
That stretch includes a sweep of the back-to-back events in Orlando, Florida — the second time a rider has won consecutive events this season at the same venue. Roczen won the tripleheader in Indianapolis in Rounds 4-6 to take the points lead.
But after a season-low sixth (ending a record streak of 10 consecutive top fives dating to last season), Roczen, who is seeking his first title, is trailing the 2019 series champion by seven points with seven races remaining this year.
