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.

Supercross: Talon Hawkins to debut in Houston in relief of Jalek Swoll

Talon Hawkins, 19, will make his Monster Energy Supercross debut on a 250 this week in Houston, Texas as a fill-in rider for Jalek Swoll.

During the Anaheim 2 weekend, the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team announced Swoll underwent successful surgery to repair a broken arm suffered in a practice crash.

That same weekend, Hawkins made some noise. He took the lead from teammate Casey Cohran on Lap 2 of the 250 SX Futures Main and led for three laps before he was overtaken by eventual winner Daxton Bennick. Cochran also got around him to push Hawkins to third.

This will not be Hawkins SuperMotocross professional debut, however; he made three Lucas Oil Pro Motocross starts last year with results of 19th at Spring Creek in Millville, Minnesota, 27th at Ironman in Crawfordsville, Indiana and a best finish of 17th in the season finale at Fox Raceway in Pala, California.

Hawkins also has a top-10 finish in the 125 All-Star division at Pala in 2019 riding a Husqvarna.

Speaking with RacerXOnline.com before the Loretta Lynn Amateur Nationals, Hawkins predicted his future with Husqvarna would come down to how he performed in that race.

“It all just comes down to how I perform at Loretta’s,” Hawkins said. “Say I do really well, I get a top three in both classes and do a pretty solid job, I would like to go pro and just kind of finish out the rest of the series. But there’s also the option of waiting a little bit longer, going back out to [Aldon] Baker’s [Factory] or going anywhere and training, and just being prepared. I’m also open to that too. Honestly, it’s whatever the team wants. Whatever we think is the best option is what we’re going to go with. So, I don’t really have a plan right now, just looking into the future.”

Hawkins finished third overall in the 125 B/C and Schoolboy divisions at the Loretta Lynn Amateur Nationals.
