A second Triple Crown round of the year has been welcomed by Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen entering Arlington after he was able to clean-sweep the earlier outing this season in Glendale.

Roczen won all three 450SX finals at in round four of the Monster Energy Supercross season and it’s put him in a positive frame of mind for the unique schedule.

“I’m personally stoked just to go to Dallas and having another Triple Crown race,” Roczen said. “The last one treated me well and I like that it’s a lot of racing – I’ve been feeling pretty good. So, I can’t wait. Obviously every time we go to a Triple Crown it is a lot of racing – a lot more than with a heat race and main event – but I do like that a lot.”

The premier class point-standings are currently led by Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Eli Tomac since his win last week in Tampa, with Roczen trailing him by four points in the standings going into round eight of 2020.
