Kyle Chisholm is one of the most well known riders in the sport and as of late, his results have been following a similar trend. He has been one of the most consistent finishers all year and Saturday in Dallas was no different. Chiz qualified very strong, inside the top 20 and went on to the night show with confidence. Kyle got an excellent jump in his Heat race and put his head down to punch his ticket directly to the Main. In the Main, Kyle got off to a decent start but never let up until the checkered flag flew. He would finish up 15th overall on the night.
Cade Clason has been re-solidifying himself as a Main Event guy all year and was ready to continue to do that on Saturday in Texas. Cade qualified exceptionally well, finishing up 22nd fastest. Cade was motivated when the gate dropped for his Heat as he was doing everything he could to claw his way forward. Cade made impressive moves on big time guys but would fall just short. When the LCQ began, he knew it was go time as he launched out to a great start. He put himself near the front early. It looked like he was going to cruise it in when his buddy Aray came and stole the last transfer spot away from him. On to Atlanta!
Joan Cros has turned over a new leaf ever since his impressive Main Event finish at Arlington 2. His confidence has been overflowing through his riding and he was shredding the track when practice began in Arlington on Saturday. Joan qualified his fastest ever with 28th fastest overall and was ready to go racing. Joan didn’t quite get the jump he needed when his Heat began but he did the best he could to move forward. He would end up 13th, and was ready to lay it on the line for the next one. When the LCQ began, Joan found himself battling forward with fellow LS2 rider, Clason, but unfortunately would fall just 2 sports out of qualifying position.
Josh Greco was best dressed when track walk began in Arlington. His cowboy boots, belt buckle, and cowboy hat were all a sight to see. Josh carried the confidence with him to the track and was not scared of the Texas size whoops inside AT&T stadium. He got up on top of them and let his Husky do the rest of the work. Josh qualified just inside the top 40 and was excited to go racing for the final Texas wound. Bad starts would plague Josh for the rest of the night as he finished 18th and 15th in the Heat and LCQ, respectively. On to Atlanta.
Josh Cartwright has been steadily improving his comfortability on his PRMX machine as his return to Supercross was only a few weeks ago. When practice began in Dallas, it was easy to see Josh was again riding the improvement train as he qualified a very impressive 23rd overall. When the night show began, Josh didn’t get the jump he was looking for in his Heat but nevertheless he charged forward. Another bad start would keep the Texas fans from seeing his speed in the LCQ but huge steps forward.
Ryan Surratt was ready to throw some more whips and lay down some fast laps for the final round in Texas on Saturday. Ryan found himself qualifying very strong once again as he landed inside the top 30 in times. In his Heat, Ryan was doing everything he could to get into qualifying position. Making passes everywhere he could but the Texas track ran out of room as he was just two spots short of qualifying position. In the LCQ, Ryan pulled one of his fantastic starts and was looking to seal the deal. Unfortunately the sand got a hold of him and forced him to finish just two spots outside of qualifying position.
Chase has been one of the most improved riders since the west coast swing began. Saturday in Texas continued along that path as Chase set a blistering pace in practice and qualified just outside of the top 20. In his Heat race, Chase knew he had a great chance to get into the Main and went to work. He was moving forward and making passes and would finish in 10th, just once spot outside of qualifying position. In the LCQ, Chase was ready to lay it all on the line but a bad jump off the gate would cut his work out for him. He continued to move forward and found himself in 5th place, just one spot out of the qualifying spot when the checkers flew.
Addison Emory has been pouring his heart out into this series ever since it began just four rounds ago. He was determined to be better when the day began in Texas and was looking very strong on the tricky track. Unfortunately he would fall short by just .3 seconds and go back to the drawing board for Atlanta.
Bubba Pauli was ready to end Texas on a high note when practice began on Saturday in Arlington. He was happy to see some large whoops and was attacking them like the top guys. He was ripping through the track and was sitting right on the border all day. Unfortunately a nasty high side crash would end his night early during the final qualifying session.
David Pulley has been working hard all season long to achieve his goals. The track in Arlington on Saturday seemed to suit his style as he attacked practice. He did his best to stay on top of the monster whoops and carry momentum through the sand but would unfortunately fall just short of qualifying position.
Scotty Wennerstrom hadn’t made a night show since early in the season and he was determined to change the narrative in Texas. When practice began, Scotty was looking very aggressive as he attacked the monster whoops and the sand section with confidence. By the end of the final session he had put in a time just fast enough to make it and was ready to show his hard work was paying off. Scotty didn’t have the best of starts all night but made the best of it and enjoyed his time racing inside the Texas size stadium.
