Behind The Lens Presented By Leatt Canada- Atlanta Supercross

For the past few seasons, Atlanta Motor Speedway has been a good backdrop for Supercross. With its unique track design and spacious grandstands, this Speedway looks like it will be a permanent stop on the Monster Energy Supercross tour. Also, this race always provides some great race action, and 2023 was no different. With the main events in the late afternoon, Round 13 in Atlanta offered SX fans a little different. In the end, the results weren’t too surprising as Hunter Lawrence won the 250SX East class, and Chase Sexton kept his Honda on two wheels to win the 450SX. With just four rounds remaining in this epic series and six points separating them, it appears that Eli Tomac and Cooper Webb will take their championship battle down to the final round in Salt Lake City. As he’s been all season long, Matt Wellumson was in Atlanta and sent us these incredible photos.
