Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas was the host to round 8 of the Monster Energy Supercross Series. This would be the debut of FXR moto's 2020.5 Helium LE Collection as well. The gear and helmet both were a huge hit in the LE color way and turning heads all day. FXR saw 8 riders in this gear throughout the day which made a big presence in the consumers eye. Round 8 was an eventful day with riders debuts of Ben Lamay, and Henry Miller but unfortunately we saw crashes as well with Broc Tickle, Lamay, and some of the other FXR Honda riders. The good news came from the Club MX team with both of our FXR backed riders grabbing top 10's in the 250 Main event. A 7th place came from Joey Crown and Enzo Lopes came away with a 8th place finish. In the 450 Class we saw a main event appearance from Ronnie Stewart finishing 20th and a season best finish from Kyle Chisholm in 15th.
