Saturday’s Monster Energy AMA Supercross event will mark the end of a three-race stand at Atlanta Motor Speedway, where the 450 championship race has tightened significantly entering Round 15.
After a dominant victory Tuesday in Round 14, Ken Roczen has closed the gap to 13 points behind championship leader Cooper Webb with three races remaining in the season.
Webb, who has a series-high six victories this season, lost nine points off his lead with a sixth place Tuesday, his worst finish since a season-opening ninth at Houston. With defending series champion Eli Tomac 22 points behind Roczen, the title race seems a two-rider battle with one more event at Atlanta and two in Salt Lake City, Utah.
In the 250 West division, Cameron McAdoo kept his championship bid alive with a miraculous recovery from a horrific crash Tuesday. He rebounded for a third and trails Justin Cooper, who won Tuesday, by nine points with two races left.
