Cooper Webb Wins Supercross Triple Crown Event at Arlington

Cooper Webb Wins Supercross Triple Crown Event at Arlington

The second triple-crown event of the Supercross season was held Saturday night in Arlington, Texas. Three main event races determine the overall winner with top honors going to Cooper Webb.

In Race 1, Eli Tomac was out front with the Holeshot. Almost immediately Jason Anderson and Chase Sexton were involved in a first corner crash. Up front, Ken Roczen was putting pressure on Tomac. Sexton continued to make up ground he lost in the crash, but it was Webb who silently made his way to the front runners.

In the second race, Jason Anderson had the Holeshot with Webb in two. By the second lap, Tomac was in third. When the race was over, Anderson had held on for the checkered flag, Webb second and Sexton third. Tomac still had the points lead going into the final event. At the gate drop for Race 3, Tomac was out front with Sexton directly behind. Barcia was running third when he crashed in the whoops. Sexton also crashed. Next it was Tomac who went down. Sexton took over the lead with Anderson and Webb running behind. Tomac maintained fourth place. Sexton was forced to make a wide turn to avoid a lapper and that’s when Webb capitalized on the moment taking the lead and coming home with the overall win.

In the 250 Eastern Regional class, Nate Thrasher came away with the overall win. Jett Lawrence won the first race but crashed in the next two. In the final race, Thrasher was out front with the holeshot. He had a nine second lead until a big crash in the whoops would send him to the ground. Thrasher remounted in third with and had enough points to win Arlington overall after top finishes in the other two races.
