Round three of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross series is held in Anaheim, California inside the famous Angels Stadium. This is the second stop in Anaheim for the series as well as the last. The Anaheim 2 track is technical, although the riders are saying it is also fun. The weather was awesome for the riders as well as the crowd. Last year in 2019, it was Cooper Webb who captured his first ever 450 Supercross win at the second Anaheim round. From there, Cooper gained his confidence and started dominating by winning six more 450 SX main events to come home with the Championship.
