2021 ARLINGTON SUPERCROSS 1 PRE-RACE REPORT: 2-POINT CHAMPIONSHIP

Supercross heads to the great state of Texas for the next three rounds of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season. AT&T Stadium hosts the 10th through 12th rounds as the riders and teams take up residency in Arlington for two Saturdays and one Tuesday of racing. Taking a look at the course for the 10th round, everything seems like a standard Supercross track except the 2021 Arlington track features unique rhythm lanes as well as huge berms. In the 250 West class, Cameron McAdoo holds onto the points lead after the first two races. In the 450 class, the points chase is down to the wire with only 2-points separating the leaders, Ken Roczen and Cooper Webb. Will Cooper Webb take away the points lead from rival Ken Roczen? Will Ken extend his lead with a win? Will Eli Tomac back up his Daytona performance with a win on a completely different track in Texas? We’re excited to find out what happens next on Saturday but for now, this is what you need to know before the riders tear up the Arlington dirt.

2021 ARLINGTON SUPERCROSS 1 TRACK MAP

The tenth round of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season features lots of rhythm and fast straightaways. It will be interesting to see what lines the riders will choose. Daytona may have had a very interesting track layout but by the end of the race, the majority of the riders took the same line so hopefully, Arlington will bring some more variety.
