Benny Bloss won the 450 class, and Brandon Hartranft cruised to a 250 division victory Saturday in the inaugural Monster Energy Supercross E SX Event at virtual Angel Stadium.

The event, which was televised on NBCSN and contested on the “Monster Energy Supercross — Official Video Game 3,” was Supercross’ first foray into sim racing.

The races featured 14 riders competing on the layout from the 2019 Supercross season opener (watch the main events by clicking on the video above).
