Ken Roczen_2019 Arlington Supercross-9For the second time this season, Ken Roczen has the points lead. 


For the seventh round of the 2019 Arlington Supercross inside AT&T stadium,  Ken Roczen will be running the red plate for the second time this year. Eli Tomac lost the red plate and the points lead by getting a bad start last weekend in Minneapolis and wasn’t able to break into the top five finishing sixth on the night. In the 250 class the red plate will be occupied by Austin Forkner for the second round of 250 East division. His ride in Minneapolis, Minnesota at round six was flawless as he won his heat race and main event from start to finish.

We had Brian Converse catch what was going on in the Arlington pits to bring you close-up shots of the bikes, teams, mechanics and more in this weeks Best in the Pits gallery. Enjoy!

No, Shane McElrath and Sean Cantrell won’t be racing, but the team is still hauling their race bikes across the country because the West riders will soon meet the East riders in the first East/West showdown of the year at Atlanta. They were outside shortly, but they will be stored back inside the rig during the pit party.
