GEICO Powersports Honda’s Kevin Windham was fourth with a 49.571. Justin Brayton and Trey Canard turned identical 49.931 second-laps for the fifth and sixth spots.

The Dallas track has some challenging obstacles that should separate the top riders from the pack quickly. There is a slow rhythm section just before a triple that might be a problem if traction deteriorates over the course of the evening program. Just like last week, a nasty sand section will have riders pulling tear-offs like service tickets in a New York deli. One section that could see a good amount of passing action is a triple table-top section that can be attacked several different ways. Stay tuned for the Race Report later tonight from the first Supercross inside the Cowboys Stadium.
