As the events at the western coasts are over, the 2012 AMA Supercross series, a part of the FIM World Championship now heads towards the eastern part of the country beginning from Arlington, Texas, US. The seventh race of this season of the SX Championship series and the first race of the East Regional Supercross Lites Class Series as a whole is expected to be witnessed by a huge crowd at Texas. However, Arlington or Dallas has always been the opening round of the eastern championship. It is expected to add more drama to the series as the competition will get more fierce and tough. The eastern rounds will take place at Atlanta, St. Louis, Daytona, Indy, etc.
The hype and excitement of some of the entirely new racers in the SX Lites class championship always adds more life into the series and grooves it up too.

The point’s leaders will try hard to maintain their position in the points table and crawl up whereas the newbies will try to make some mark in the points tally. It’s definitely going to be a fierce battle in the eastern rounds.
Beyond all these expectations, there are also some notable beginners coming in in the next match.

Justin Starling, Shawn Rife, James Justice, Austin Politelli, Gannon Audette, Tyler Sjoberg, Zack Freeberg, Kyle Peters and Cole Thompson are some of the newcomers this season.
Ryan Villopoto will no doubt be charged up after his three wins in this season so far which also includes two consecutive victories at Anaheim II and San Diego, while his arch rivals only have a single win each in this season.
