Round 7 of the AMA Supercross series was hosted at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, where Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac grabbed the holeshot and led all 25 laps of the main event to take his third victory of the season in front of the 57,421 fans in attendance.

“It was a night of good starts,” Tomac said. “After that it was all about being consistent. After qualifying, we found our pace and we were feeling it all day. The win feels great and we’re just looking forward to next week.”

Marvin Musquin

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin came around the first corner in third place and passed Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson after he had a small tip-over. Musquin would remain in second place for the remainder of the race to grab another podium finish.

“The track was really challenging tonight, especially the whoops,” Musquin said. “I was trying to be creative and consistent. It was tough with the lappers and I thought I could capitalize on that, but there was nothing I could do. I was catching Eli just a little bit, but nothing to put a charge on him. Getting seventh in the heat race was not good for start position and I was all the way outside, but I got a great start in the main event. I put myself in a great position and that’s what we needed to do to get on the podium tonight. A second place is good, but we want more for sure.”

Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-WPS-KTM’s Blake Baggett had a similar race to Musquin as he rounded the first corner in fourth place and benefited from Anderson’s crash, which moved him up one position into podium contention. Baggett has scored three third-place finishes in the last three races.

“The track was tough tonight,” Baggett said. “It was one of those weekends where I had a big crash on Thursday and wasn’t even planning on coming, but last minute we jumped on a flight and made it happen. I have to give it up to the team and everybody who’s behind us. Our goal is to win races, but we’re three-for-three on third place, so now we have two spots to go.”
