Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team has confirmed that reigning 450SX Champion Cooper Webb is ‰Û÷READY TO RACE‰Ûª the final seven rounds of the 2020 AMA Monster Energy Supercross Championship at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Beginning on May 31 and running through June 21, the final seven made-for-tv races are scheduled to take place twice a week (Sunday and Wednesday) for four consecutive weeks and each race will be broadcast on NBC networks without fans in attendance.

Webb, who has often expressed his desire to continue racing, currently sits third overall in the championship standings as he continues his quest to maintain the number one plate.

‰ÛÏAt KTM, we are always READY TO RACE! I know it was questionable as to whether or not we would get to finish the season but I feel as professional supercross racers it‰Ûªs our job to be ready to race and we do our jobs whenever called upon," Webb said. "With that being said, it also gives us an opportunity to grow our sport, give people jobs back and give all the fans a chance to see us race on TV while we do everything possible to stay safe and continue practicing social distancing.‰Û
