State Farm Stadium in Glendale not only was the host for Round 4 of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Series but it was also the first Triple Crown format of the season. Because of this, fans were able to witness three exciting main events in both the 250SX West class as well as the 450SX class. It was definitely an exciting evening of racing in the desert, and in the end it was Austin Forkner and Ken Roczen taking the wins in their respective classes. Roczen not only dominated all three main events on Saturday evening, but he was also the series’ first repeat winner in the 450SX class. Now the series heads northwest to Oakland for Round 5 and back to its normal racing format. For this week’s Yamaha Motor Canada Behind the Lens we take a look at more incredible photos from James Lissimore.
