The Others...Arlington.

Roses are red, violets are blue, Happy Valentines Day and first east coast supercross too!

Round seven of the Monster Energy Supercross series stopped in Arlington, Texas. The 450 championship fight is in it's prime and the west coast 250 riders take their first break in the season as round one of the east coast championship got under way.

A lot of hype was brought to this round for the debut of one rider. If you showed up early enough for practice, you got to witness Vicki Golden on the #423 Suzuki as she is attempting to be the first female to make the night show. It didn't happen in Texas, but keep an eye on Vicki at the remaining east rounds.

Another big story from practice was the crash of Tracy Morgan...not that Tracy Morgan. #635 had a huge get off and we are hearing he is doing well, but has a broken femur. Get well soon Tracy. You can see a video of his crash at: vurbmoto.com/videos/Tracy-Morgans-insane-Arlington-practice-crash/23133/

We also saw 2 red flags. The first resulted in a restart and the second gave us the staggered start. 

KTM is leaving Texas with 2 red plates, as they would sweep the night.

And now...The Others.
