Round twelve of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross is upon us this weekend in Arlington, Texas, with the final of three rounds being held at the AT&T Stadium this saturday night.

The first 450SX Class race held in the DFW Metroplex was on February 28th, 1975 in Irving’s Texas Stadium. Jimmy Ellis won the race on a Can-Am and then won the 1976 race in Texas Stadium as well. Bob Hannah won in 1977, a race that holds the record for most brands represented: Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Maico, Suzuki, Penton,Husqvarna, Bultaco, and Ossa.

After a five-year hiatus, the series returned to the DFW Metroplex from 1983-1985 and 1990 a the Dallas Cotton Bowl. Texas Stadium would host the series from 1975-1977, 1986-1989 and 1991-2008 before it was demolished in 2010. After hosting 26 straight seasons of Supercross racing between two demolished stadiums, DFW skipped the 2009 season while AT&T Stadium finished construction.

In 2010 AT&T Stadium hosted their first Supercross race. The series has returned to Arlington every year since. Texas Stadium hosted 25 events throughout their history, the Cotton Bowl hosted four, and AT&T Stadium has hosted 13. That makes the 2021 Arlington Supercross 3 the 43rd race held in the DFW Metroplex.
