Glendale Removed, Orlando and Atlanta Added

Salt Lake City to Host Final Two Rounds

ELLENTON, FL – December 15, 2020 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Feld Entertainment, Inc., today announced the complete schedule for the upcoming 2021 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season. The three rounds originally scheduled for Glendale, Ariz. were removed from the schedule and the series will now split those races between Orlando, Fla., and Salt Lake City.

State Farm Stadium in Glendale is a tremendous partner and the Arizona fans have strongly supported Supercross since 1999 but current attendance restrictions and local health mandates have created a difficult environment in which to plan this far in advance. We hope to return to Glendale in 2022.

After the trio of races in Indianapolis, Ind., the series will venture to Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. for two races on Saturday, February 13 and Saturday, February 20, followed by the annual visit to the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla. on Saturday, March 6.

The Arlington, Texas dates remain the same – Saturday, March 13, Tuesday, March 16 and Saturday, March 20 at AT&T Stadium.

The three previously unannounced events will now take place in Atlanta, Ga. at the Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 10, Tuesday, April 13 and Saturday, April 17. The final two races of the season will take place at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City on Saturday, April 24 and Saturday, May 1.

2021 Monster Energy Supercross Schedule – Rounds 1 – 17

Orlando is no stranger to Supercross as the Florida Citrus Bowl, now named Camping World Stadium hosted 13 450SX Class races and 11 250SX Class races from 1983 through 2007. Coincidentally, that last race, on March 17, 2007 was also the final race of 5-time Supercross Champion and NBC Sports Broadcaster Ricky Carmichael’s historic career.

The Atlanta Motor Speedway now joins a small list of venues in Atlanta to host Supercross dating back to 1977 at Fulton County Stadium. When the Atlanta Motor Speedway opened its doors in 1960 it became the seventh superspeedway in the country and now joins just Darlington, Charlotte, and Daytona as one of the original seven still in operation. The April triple-header will be a first for the speedway and a first for the Atlanta market.

The first seven races will now feature the Western Regional 250SX Class and the Eastern Regional 250SX Class will now debut in Orlando on Saturday, February 20. Both championships will race a total of nine races in their season including the one and only 250SX Class East/West Showdown in Salt Lake City on Saturday, May 1.

All 17 rounds of the Monster Energy Supercross season will feature a standard race format as Triple Crown events will be put on hold until the 2022 season.

Tickets are currently on sale for the first six rounds in Houston and Indianapolis. Additional on-sale ticket information will be forthcoming and fans can stay up to date by visiting SupercrossLIVE.com.

FanFest is currently scheduled to take place in Houston, Orlando, Arlington, Atlanta and Salt Lake City as these venues provide adequate space to feature the race team rigs, Monster Energy exhibitions, photo opportunity set ups, food and beverages, plus authentic Supercross and racer merchandise sold via contactless shopping. Ticketed patrons will be allowed to move between the FanFest perimeter and the stadium to watch qualifying at designated times.

Rocky Mountain ATV MC will once again host the ultimate Monster Energy Supercross fantasy challenge. Throughout the season, Rocky Mountain ATV MC will be giving away over $100,000 in prizes, including a customized 2021 KTM 450 SXF Factory Edition or KTM 250SX with custom suspension, Dunlop tires for a year, $2,500 spending spree at Rocky Mountain ATV MC and more. Fans can sign up for free at RMfantasySX.com.

Supercross has implemented enhanced health measures to help ensure the highest standards of wellness when it comes to today’s live experience. Seating capacity will be reduced at each stadium with a Pod Seating structure, which will allow family and friends to safely enjoy all the action while social distancing from other groups in attendance. More information about each stadium’s safety protocols can be found on their individual websites – NRG Stadium, Lucas Oil Stadium, Camping World Stadium, AT&T Stadium, Atlanta Motor Speedway and Rice-Eccles Stadium. Unless otherwise exempted by law, guests age 2 and older must wear a face covering except when actively eating and drinking – local venue rules also apply. More information about Monster Energy Supercross’ Fan Wellness can be found here.

It looked like alot of people wont be going due to the limited number of tickets and the price of those tickets.

First time in quite a few years I probably wont be able to go to a race which kinda sucks.

This was talked about when the Nationals was starting up and I'll touch on it again, briefly. Some of you guys need to realize that some of the decisions made, whether Feld or MX Sports likes it or not, is just to do what is needed to try to make this event go off without cancelation. If it's mandatory masks, limited fans, an out of the ordinary venue etc etc, it's about trying to put everyone in the most likely position to participate/ spectate the event.

I don't have that info. My post was just a general statement  that there are some hoops to jump through to make this work, in these times. Sometimes it sucks but at least there is racing (hopefully lol)

From what I've seen at other events I'm betting they'll only be selling pre packaged food and drink...such as 20oz bottles instead of fountain drinks. And only selling bags of chips for example...no hot dogs or pretzel and nacho type stuff.

If you were asking as far as shirts and whatnot, they will be available.  Not sure if you meant that specifically.  But as far as food / drinks, I have no info there.

Wait, you can't buy a beer and have it passed down open container and all by each person in the row before it gets to you?  How am I supposed to toughen up my immune system?

West teams going to Orlando while East teams go to Arlington is ignorant towards privateers travelling from the actual West coast.  Period.

What happened to the West coast rounds ? 

California Oregon Washington, what do these items have in common?  Answer: A population that believes the government will do a better job of taking care of them than they will.

I know nothing about Nevada, but the first thing to comes to mind is hookers and Harry Reid so I see your point.

Clark County (aka Vegas) is locking everything down again.  Shut down a few truck/buggy races out of Primm already on VERY short notice this month and yeah, there aren't any spectators out in the middle of the desert for a local race event.  These races weren't exactly the Mint 400 or Vegas to Reno.

Because it isn't like the Raiders are going to be using the new "Black Hole" when Supercross is happening and the proximity to LA (just sit in I-15 traffic for a few hours) seems that it would be a no brainer?

Safe-to-Race Task Force members named American Motorcyclist Association 2020 Motorcyclists of the Year

Group developed guidelines, practices for return to motorcycle racing

PICKERINGTON, OH – December 16, 2020 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) –  For uniting the motorcycle competition industry and providing the expertise and guidelines that got America competing again during the coronavirus pandemic, the members of the Safe-to-Race Task Force are the American Motorcyclist Association 2020 Motorcyclists of the Year.

The AMA Motorcyclist of the Year designation, awarded annually by the AMA Board of Directors, recognizes the individual or group that had the most profound impact on the world of motorcycling in the previous 12 months.

Quote

“This group provided the leadership that motorcycle racing needed during a crisis that threatened the continued existence of the sport, not just a single racing season,” said Russ Ehnes, chair of the AMA Board of Directors. “From the top professional racers to the young amateur competitors, motorcycle racers were able to participate in well-run events and battle to bring home AMA National No. 1 plates.”

The 24-member task force met regularly in Zoom video conferences and developed the Race Resumption Plan and Best Practices Toolkit, which proved to be the vital resource organizers and racers needed to resume competition. The information, which can be found at americanmotorcyclist.com/covid19resources, covers racing operations, employee wellness, event messaging, signage and more.

The full story about the task force, its work and its accomplishments can be found in the January issue of American Motorcyclist magazine, which AMA members receive through the mail, and in the online version available to members Jan. 1.
