In front of a crowd of 57,421 fans inside AT&T Stadium, Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM World Championship, hosted Round 7 of the 2018 season in Arlington, Texas. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac had a perfect night after posting the fastest qualifying time, leading every lap of his Heat Race and all 25-Laps of the 450SX Main Event for his third win of the season.
“Once we got going, it was just staying consistent and just me and the bike,” Tomac said on the podium. “It was just a good day. We’ve never had a great finish here in Dallas, so this is something I’ve always wanted to check off my box, which is a win here in Dallas so, yeah, it feels awesome.”
Team Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin captured his second-straight second-place finish after a third-place start. For the third consecutive week, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC/KTM/WPS Team’s Blake Baggett finished on the podium after a fourth-place start.
In the season opener of the Eastern Regional 250SX Class championship, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s defending champion Zach Osborne worked his way up to third from a fourth-place start before a mistake in a corner dropped him to fifth. Osborne then battled his way back to the front of the pack to lead six laps and claim a come-from-behind victory.
