Monday Kickstart – Dallas SX 2012

The seventh round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series was broadcasted live from Dallas, Texas, last Saturday night, but here are some things you might now have caught during that broadcast.

The seventh round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series made it's way East to Dallas, Texas over the weekend. The giant Cowboys Stadium housed the 53,952 fans in attendance, and it offered some of the best racing action so far this season.
While walking around the pits on Saturday, we ran into Kyle Regal. The Dirty 30 said that he was planning on racing the East Coast, but an injured femur and dislocated hip kept him from riding during most of the off-season. He's all healed up now, but he made his way out to Dallas to try and figure out what he's going to do for a ride.
Rain hit Dallas hard on Saturday night, but the huge retractable roof covering the stadium kept everything dry.
The dirt inside the Dallas Cowboys Stadium was some of the stickiest and hard-packed mixture we have seen so far this season. Looking and feeling like clay based dirt, many riders had mixed feelings about it.
MotoConcept Racing's Tommy Weeck made his debut in the East Coast Lites class this past weekend, but a crash in the first practice knocked him out and kept him from competing that night.
The San Diego Supercross round brought out the longest whoop section the riders have seen up to that date, but the whoop section in Dallas was just as equally long. However, the roundness of each whoop combined with the hard-packed dirt allowed riders to blitz them all throughout the night.
