Phoenix Supercross

http://www.x-spirit.co.uk

  • Ken Roczen can become the first Suzuki rider in history to win the first two races of the year.
  • With a win this weekend, Eli Tomac or Jason Anderson can join James Stewart and Ryan Dungey as the only riders to win both classes in Phoenix.
  • Dungey earned this first 450SX Class win of his career in 2010 and gave KTM its first-ever 450SX Class win in Phoenix in 2012. He’s one of just two former Phoenix winners in the field.
  • Jason Anderson gave Husqvarna its first podium finish in the 450SX Class since December 4, 1976. Ryan Dungey won his first 450SX Class race in Phoenix after a second place in Anaheim back in 2010. Can Anderson do the same?
  • Davi Millsaps and Eli Tomac, who were both considered front-runners heading into the season, finished 18th and 19th respectively in Anaheim, each crashing twice. How will they bounce back?

Supercross/ Round 7/ Arlington

So, the Supercross juggernaut moves East, and we all know JS7 prefers the tracks of the East, so this could be extremely beneficial. This from the TwoTwo Motorsports camp:

Message from Chad – “Not the news I wanted 3 broken bones 1) scapula 2) collarbone 3) T1 which explains the pain I guess.. Sometimes things don’t make sense it’s that love hate relationship you have with racing. Every Saturday night they drop the gate and in 6 days time I plan to be there! Thanks for all the prayers hope to make y’all proud 2⃣2⃣ supporters” – Chad
