Supercross R6 – Arlington: facts, figures and track map
Monster Energy Supercross‰Ûª tenure in the Dallas area dates back 42 years to 1975, the second season of the championship, which is now the longest of any stadium host city in history. North Texas has hosted a race in 37 of the championship‰Ûªs 44 seasons.

The original home of the championship in the Dallas area was legendary Texas Stadium in Irving, which hosted 29 races from ‰Ûª75-‰Ûª08. Nearby Arlington‰Ûªs state-of-the-art AT&T Stadium has been supercross‰Ûª current home since the 2010 season.

The Dallas area also has a unique history in the 250SX Class. It served as a dual-region event from ‰Ûª85-‰Ûª96, but has since alternated as a standalone stop of both the Western and Eastern Regional Championships (11 seasons West; 9 seasons East).

The largest domed sports structure in the world, AT&T Stadium is capable of housing the 305-foot Statue of Liberty inside its roof. It could also fit four Houston Astrodomes, which was the largest domed stadium in the world when it opened in 1965.
