2021 ARLINGTON SUPERCROSS 3 PRE-RACE REPORT: ANOTHER DELAYED TV BROADCAST
Round 12 of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season is here and it’s the third and final race in Arlington, Texas. With six Rounds left in the series, Cooper Webb has gained major momentum and confidence, especially after grabbing the holeshot and holding off Tomac and Roczen during Tuesday night’s race. This season, we’ve seen the “residency” races benefit the rider who wins the first night. Houston was an anomaly—there we saw three different winners. Since then, the multiple races at one location has favored one rider. At Indianapolis, it was Ken Roczen. He won three in a row and grew his points lead. At Orlando, it was the Cooper Webb show. He grabbed two wins and gained valuable points. At Daytona, it was an Eli Tomac show, but unfortunately for him, we only stopped there once. Now, Tomac will be looking forward to the Atlanta races which also will be on the infield of a NASCAR track. But, we don’t expect as much sand at those races. Now, Cooper Webb has enjoyed success at the first two Arlington races and he’s feeling good for Saturday’s race on the same dirt, in the same stadium, only days after his last win at the same spot.
