The premier class is back in AT&T Stadium located in Arlington, Texas for the eleventh round of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season. The track is exciting and interesting as it provides plenty of passing opportunities and with a strat straight taking up a third of the track, getting in front of the pack is everything. Eli Tomac was the overall fastest qualifier in timed qualifying however racing is a totally different story. Coming into the Arlington Supercross #2, we expected a battle between Cooper Webb and Ken Roczen to heat up as the points chase is now in Cooper Webb’s favor. So how did it all shake down? See below for results from Arlington #2.

Jason Anderson cut the track and was docked one position, moving him back from 7th to 8th place in the 450 Main Event and moving Aaron Plessinger up to 6th.

The 450 Main Event took off and the two rivals Cooper Webb and Ken Roczen raced around the first turn. Eli Tomac made the pass on Ken and soon the three points leaders were battling out for the lead in the 450 Main. Chase Sexton sat in fourth with Matin Davalos in fifth. A few laps around the track, Ken Roczen already was knocking on Eli Tomac’s door. With 15 minutes remaining, Cooper Webb hit the whoops slow and Eli Tomac snuck up behind Cooper Webb. Cooper Webb’s riding was nearly flawless despite losing speed in the whoops. Justin Barcia made progress through the pack, passing Aaron Plessinger and making his way towards Chase Sexton. Eventually, Justin Barcia made past the 450 rookie, Chase Sexton. Eli Tomac closed so much ground on Cooper Webb, Eli was nearly touching the rear wheel of the KTM but slipped the rear end out right before entering the whoops. Cooper Webb would become victorious and win another race in Arlington.

We had some more great action from Arlington tonight. Guess what? We get to do it again on Saturday. 


Cooper Webb won the second Heat Race. 

The second 450 Heat took off and Cooper Webb grabbed the holeshot with Kevin Moranz on his tail. Malcolm Stewart made the pass on Kevin and Eli followed. This is a huge feat for Kevin to get such a good start as he’s only been on the 450 for one race, Kevin normally races on the East Coast 250s. Eli Tomac moved up to third and soon was on Malcolm Stewart’s rear fender. Eli eventually made the pass on Malcolm but still sat three seconds behind Cooper Webb. Cooper Webb would head into the Main Event with a good gate selection as he crossed the checkers first in the second Heat Race.

Justin Barcia gave Ken Roczen a run for his money. 

Chase Sexton got the holeshot but Aaron Plessinger squeezed by in one of the rhythm sections following the start. Ken Roczen made progress on his teammate, Chase Sexton. Justin Barcia made the pass on Ken Roczen but a turn later, Kenny would get back at the 51 of Justin Barcia. Aaron Plessinger’s lead grew to two seconds while those behind him battled it out. Justin Barcia made the pass again through the whoops. With a minute and a half remaining, Chase Sexton closed the gap on Aaron and begun to make passing attempts. Justin Barcia also began to approach Chase Sexton while Ken Roczen started to fall behind. Aaron would become successful and win his Heat Race.

Dean Wilson wins the 450 LCQ. 

It was Kevin Moranz who grabbed the holeshot in the 450 LCQ. Kevin has been getting great starts lately, he almost grabbed the holeshot over Cooper Webb in the Heat race but dropped back to 10th place and just missed the last transfer spot going from the Heat race straight to the Main. Justin Starling was second, but with a minute and a half to go, Dean Wilson had worked his way into the qualifying position and then into second place pushing Starling to third and Brandon Hartranft to fourth, the final transfer spot. Then, with two laps to go, Dean Wilson made his way passed Moranz in the whoops. With two laps to go, Cade Clason pushed Brandon Hartranft off the track, but Hartranft got on the gas, passed Clason back while off the track and got back on in fourth place. It was definitely a violation of the rules. Riders aren’t allowed to accelerate and pass other riders while off the track, but we doubt the AMA will do anything about this incident.
