450 QUALIFYING RESULTS | 2021 ARLINGTON SUPERCROSS 2
The premier class is back under the lights of AT&T Stadium for the eleventh round of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season. This will be their second of three rounds in Arlington as the riders and teams take up residency in the Lone Star State. While it was a short weekend for the riders to relax, the mechanics were hard at work preparing the race bikes for the next round in a very short amount of time. It is all hands on deck at the Honda and KTM rigs as the championship has gained a new points leader, Cooper Webb, Ken struggled the weekend prior in both the Heat Race and Main Event, specifically in the starts. While we saw this happen to Justin Cooper as well, it’s exciting to see the two go back and forth in the racing. So get your fantasy picks ready as we examine the fastest lap times in AT&T Stadium.
