Ferrandis has yet to be topped in qualifying. The Frenchman kept countering the competition with one fast lap after another and took the top spot for the sixth time in the final moments of the session. He went on to back that up with a win in his Heat. In the Main Event, he got off to a decent start and quickly worked his way into third. A few laps later, he closed the gap on the leaders and moved into second. As the race started winding down, the defending champ made an attempt to overtake his rival in the run to the finish line, but he was unable to make it stick. He had another go, took the lead with four laps to go, and secured the victory for the second week running, and his third of 2020. The win not only gives Ferrandis great momentum in the championship, but it also expanded his lead to seven points.
In spite of a technical issue in the Heat race, Cooper was able to manage a second-place finish. He got off to a good start in the Main Event, was once again right behind his teammate in fifth and moved through into third. Unfortunately, as the race wore on, the New Yorker was unable to match the pace of the leaders and had to settle for third. Although hoping for more, his fifth podium finish of the season helped minimize the points loss and allow the Anaheim I winner to regroup as the series heads into a six-week break.
