This past Saturday at Arlington inside the Cowboys Stadium Justin put in a very solid ride to finish fifth in the main. A fifth place marks his best finish so far this year as this season has been considered one of the toughest and it seems every rider has elevated their speed a bunch.

Blake Wharton, 250 Supercross/Motocross - Rockstar Racing
The 250SX East season fired up last Saturday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas and Blake finished second.

Last year, Blake finished third in the East Coast series and seventh in the Outdoors.
