Dominant in Dallas: Can Kevin Windham become the second rider in town to win Dallas on two brands? Ricky Johnson did so on a Yamaha and Honda.
Cashin' In: Team Mazda Yamaha's Jeremy McGrath can be the first rider to win the $500,000 jackpot as part of the Vans Triple Crown of Supercross if he wins this weekend and in Las Vegas. This is the second round of the three-race series. McGrath became eligible for the money when he won Anaheim #2.
Can He Win Three: Jeremy McGrath has only won in Dallas twice - '93 and '96. Suzuki has never won here. Yamaha hasn't won here since '92 - Damon Bradshaw. Kawasaki - '97, Jeff Emig.
Back To Back: Only four times has a rider won Dallas in back-to-back years: Jimmy Ellis, '75-'76; Ricky Johnson, '87-'88; Bradshaw, '91-'92; Windham, '99-'00. Can Windham become the first rider to win three in a row and give Suzuki their first-ever win here in Dallas?
Double Winners: Mike LaRocco, Jeremy McGrath, Doug Henry, and Kevin Windham are the only riders who have won 125cc and 250cc Main Events in Dallas.
RC Track Record: Ricky Carmichael's history in Dallas on a 250cc: third in '00; 19th '99
Winning Streak: Ricky Carmichael now has 11 wins in EA SPORTS Supercross, 10 in a row.
Slippery When Wet: Back in '97 a nasty rainstorm came through Dallas, turning the race into a swamp race.
Podium Blues: Only five different riders have finished on the podium all season out of 39 total spots; McGrath has been off the podium the last two weeks.
Schnelling A Win: Team Motoworld of El Cajon's Greg Schnell won here last year on the 125cc, but has failed to earn a victory this season.
King Kawi: If Carmichael wins the title this weekend, he will be the second Kawasaki rider to remove McGrath from the number-one position. Jeff Emig won the title in '97.
