With the AMA Monster Energy Supercross suddenly shaping up as more of a three-rider race for the 450 championship, the series will return Tuesday night to Atlanta Motor Speedway for Round 14 of 17.
Defending series champion Eli Tomac won in Supercross’ debut at the track last Saturday, continuing his roll in outdoor stadiums that primarily are known for being NASCAR venues.
With his second victory in five events (after tying Ricky Carmichael’s win record at Daytona International Speedway), Tomac trails Cooper Webb (who finished third) by 36 points in the championship standings.
Ken Roczen, who finished a disappointing ninth at Atlanta, is second in the championship standings, 22 points behind Webb.
Atlanta will play host to two more events before Supercross ends its season with two races in Salt Lake City, Utah.
