Anaheim, Calif., (January 18, 2020) The 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship season saw two more riders take their first wins of 2020 at round three inside Anaheim's Angel Stadium in front of 43,106 fans. Monster Energy Kawasaki's Eli Tomac earned his first win of the year the hard way. After a bad start that had him round the first lap in tenth place, Tomac got into his groove early and started turning the fastest laps and picking off riders quickly. On the 8th of 24 laps Tomac cut under last weekend's winner, Team Honda HRC's Ken Roczen. Tomac pulled a comfortable lead on Roczen while riders behind the two battled for positions.

Justin Cooper took second, and held onto the points lead, while Troy Lee Designs / Red Bull / KTM's Brandon Hartranft followed up the previous weekend's podium with another third place finish. Tomac and Ferrandis' victories mark a different winner in each class, at each round, so far in 2020. The series heads to Glendale, Arizona next weekend for the first of the Triple Crown format events when racers compete in three Main Events for each class, with the combined best finishes awarding the event points
