Monster Energy Supercross made its second stop in the Lone Star state this past weekend at the eighth wonder of the world: Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The weather and racing were both excellent with rookie Trey Canard bringing home another win for FLY Racing in front of his hometown fans, friends, and family that made the short trip from Oklahoma.
The night started and ended well for Canard as he battled with James Stewart in his heat race, then proceeded to take the lead in the second turn in the main event and never look back, leading all twenty laps on his way to win number three in his rookie 450 season. Fellow FLY riders Andrew Short and Weston Peick also put in great rides, with Short not far behind in sixth, and Peick charging his way to a season best 11th place in the main event. Also making the 450 main for FLY racing were Team BTO Sports/BBMX/Palmetto Suzuki rider Michael Byrne in 14th, and Texas based San Manuel rider Kyle Regal in his first race back finishing 16th place.
