The Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series will head to Arlington, Texas, for a three-race stand that will start Saturday with emotions running hot for Round 10 in the Lone Star State.
Ken Roczen will carry a two-point lead over Cooper Webb and some lingering bitterness about how his fiercest title challenger raced him at the start of Round 9 at Daytona International Speedway.“I think he’s scared of me,” the championship leader said of Webb, who finished second at Daytona International Speedway after squeezing Roczen to the outside on the second turn.
Meanwhile, defending series champion Eli Tomac is within 24 points of Roczen with eight races remaining in the season after his record-tying fifth 450 victory at Daytona International Speedway. It was the 73rd victory of Tomac’s all-time AMA career, moving into fifth on the career wins list ahead of Ryan Villopoto (72).
The trio of contenders has a good history at Arlington. Tomac won there last season and in 2018, and Webb (’19) and Roczen (’16) also are former winners at the stadium the Dallas Cowboys call home.
Two years ago, Webb entered Arlington with the points lead and nipped Roczen in the final corner to win by 0.028 seconds, a pivotal moment in his first championship.
