FXR-Logo-2015

As the riders headed into Texas last weekend for the 2017 Dallas SX, all eyes were Eli Tomac and Justin Hill to see if the two Kawasaki riders could continue their winning ways? Racing in front of the enthusiastic Arlington crowd, the 250SX and 450SX riders navigated the slippery track while trying to put on the best show possible. When all was said and done, Hill won his four race in row in the 250SX west class, while Marvin Musquin took home his very first 450SX win. Now the riders and teams move north to beautiful Minneapolis for round 7 of the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross Series.
