450 OVERALL QUALIFYING RESULTS | 2021 ARLINGTON SUPERCROSS 1
The premier class has landed in Arlington, Texas for a three-race residency for the next rounds in Monster Energy Supercross season. With how exciting the 450 class is during qualifying, it is always amazing just how close the fastest riders are when it comes down to lap times. Usually separated by just a few seconds, we have seen top runners like Ken Roczen, Eli Tomac, and more grab the top spot consistently. One common complaint about Daytona was how limited the line choices began to turn into by the end of the race. Arlington appears to have taken a note and features multiple line choices which will hopefully lead to some exciting passing opportunities. So who do you think will grab the fastest spot in timed qualifying as the day goes on in Arlington, Texas. Find out down below as we report LIVE from AT&T Stadium with all of the coverage from the race.
