FXR Racing Presents Behind the Lens- 2018 Dallas Supercross

This past weekend, the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross Series visited it’s most extravagant venue in Arlington, TX. AT&T Stadium is a thing of beauty and each year when the SX series comes to the land of the Dallas Cowboys, exciting things always seem to happen. Well, this year was no different as we witnessed some incredible racing under the roof in Big D. In the opening round of the 250SX East series, Zach Osborne came from behind to capture his first win of this new season. In the 450SX class, Eli Tomac continued his on again, off again season, this time walking away with an easy victory. Behind Tomac, the points leader Jason Anderson had an off night and was only able to climb to fourth after a bad start. Sadly, another top rider went down in Dallas as Justin Barcia got landed on during his heat race and suffered a broken hand. With Ken Roczen and Barcia now out for the remainder of the series, the 450SX will have two less superstars on the gate when the riders arrive in Tampa this coming weekend. Our staff photographer James Lissimore was on hand in Texas and sent us this incredible photo report.
