From Supercross Live, "History Lesson: The first Supercross held in the DFW Metroplex was on February 28, 1975 in Irving’s Texas Stadium, and was the season opener of the second 450SX Class season. The round was held across two days holding two races each. Jimmy Ellis scored the overall victory with 1-1-1-2 rides on his Can-am. Ellis repeated his Texas Stadium heroics in 1976 with a less dominant 3-4-1-4 weekend but fell short to Jimmy Weinert in the final Championship tally by 30 points."
"Three Different Venues: After a five-year hiatus the series returned to the DFW Metroplex from 1983-1985 and 1990 at Dallas’ Cotton Bowl. Texas Stadium would host the series again from 1986-1989 and 1991-2008 before it was demolished after 25 Supercross rounds. AT&T Stadium was built in Arlington and hosted the Supercross every season since 2010 including three in 2021. That makes the 2024 Arlington Supercross the 46th race held in the DFW Metroplex and 17th in AT&T Stadium."
"Back to One: Arlington was a Triple Crown in 2020 and Eli Tomac won the last two races and the overall. Arlington hosted three races during the 2021 season, and it was a clean sweep by eventual champion Cooper Webb. Arlington hosted Triple Crowns again in 2022-2023 with Tomac and Webb winning the two overalls. After his 2023 Arlington victory Webb became the winningest DFW Metroplex 450SX Class athlete and only trailed Tomac in the point standings by two points with the series heading into Daytona. In 2024, Arlington is back to a regular format but is once again Round 7 and right before Daytona."
Round 7 Arlington. Its time! Four 250 East riders. Four 450 riders. 3.5 million dollar budget. A chance to win a CRF110f from Storm Lake Honda. Drop the gate.
