Monday Kickstart – Arlington, TX

The 2011 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series is rapidly winding down, but the action at the races has been anything but boring. Every weekend there is a new winner, and almost every weekend there is some crazy on-track action. This past weekend in Arlington, Texas, didn’t disappoint, but the racing on the track wasn’t the only news that went down. Sit back, relax, and take a break from the Monday grind with this week’s Monday Kickstart.

Without a doubt the biggest news heading into the weekend’s race in Arlington was James Stewart’s arrest. While he reportedly wasn’t allowed to talk about the case—for the obvious reason that it’s still pending—him and his team carried on throughout the day as if it never happened. James appeared to be his normal self, however, he did keep to himself and away from the media as much as possible.

One thing that definitely remained the same for James was the fan presence at the San Manuel/Yamaha pit area, as his autograph line was one of the longest in the pits.

When the night show got underway, James was also well received by pretty much everyone in attendance, entering the arena to loud cheers. In most people’s eyes, his arrest was just a mistake that he is going to have to deal with.

During opening ceremonies, Two Two Motorsports/Bel Ray’s Chad Reed entered the stadium wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey and promptly pulled off a picture perfect nac-nac.

Team Honda’s Trey Canard also did a nac-nac, which actually isn’t any big news as he does it during pretty much every opening ceremonies, but we really liked this shot and wanted to include it.
