AMA Supercross Championship is a Motorcycle Racing competition founded by the American Motorcyclist Association. The Supercross Championship races are held from January through early May. Supercross is a variant of motocross. The tracks of Supercross are usually constructed inside a stadium. The accessibility and comfort of these stadiums improved the popularity of Supercross over the motocross championship in the United States. The fans of Supercross are now spread around the world. Eli Tomac is the current champion of the AMA Supercross Championship.

Most of the 2021 Supercross schedule has been announced. The first round of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season will be held in Houston, Texas. This is the first time in last twenty five years when the first round will not take place in California. NRG Stadium, Houston will serve not only the first round, but also the second and the third.

Event Format:

The AMA Supercross begins in early January and continues up to May. The whole event is divided into 17 rounds in the 450cc class, and 9 rounds in the East and West Division of the 250cc class. Each meet is structured with two heat races and a consolidation race in each class. Each heat race is 6 minutes plus one lap in both classes. 20 riders participate in each heat race and 9 of them qualify for the next feature. The other 22 riders from these two heat races are relegated to the consolidation race, which is known as the Last Chance Qualifier. The Last Chance Qualifier is 5 minutes plus one lap and the top 4 riders advance to the final.

AUDIENCE & SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Fans will get the chance to watch the races from the gallery, but in limited numbers. The Supercross authority is very much concerned with the spectators’ health safety issues. Each stadium will have a “Pod Seating” structure, where the same group of people can sit together, but they will keep themselves away from other groups. This will allow the family members or friend circles to enjoy the race together, maintaining a social distance from other people.

Wearing mask is a mandatory safety feature. Until the law says otherwise, everyone should put on a mask inside the stadium. The detailed safety features can be collected from the websites of the stadiums.

Supercross successfully completed the 2020 season, maintaining the bio-bubble environment. They are the first sport authority to do so. Now, NBA, WNBA, MLB and NHL are using bio-bubbles in their sports. Supercross will follow unique tactics to maintain bio-bubble environment in the 2021 season as well.

AMA Supercross 2021

The first event of the Supercross will kick off at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on 16 January 2021 for a three-race stint. The event is expected to be one of the greatest sporting events of 2021. The action and excitement will certainly continue till May, as the competition is fierce as always. The event tickets can be purchased right away online or in-person as the full schedule has been updated. Fans from any corner of the world can enjoy the event live as many cable channels and streaming services will stream the grand event live.

Monster Energy Supercross 2021 Complete Schedule Revealed

Glendale Removed, Orlando and Atlanta Added

Salt Lake City to Host Final Two Rounds

AMA Supercross 2021 Schedule

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.

CHANGES AT-A-GLANCE

Viewers can browse official Site of supercross to get all the latest updated information by the competition’s official website.

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 Eastern Regional 250SX Class will start its season first on Saturday, January 16 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The first seven races will feature the Eastern Regional 250SX Class and the Western Regional 250SX Class will now debut in Orlando, Fla. 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 the Schedule & Tickets page.

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.

FAN WELLNESS

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. You can find more information at the Monster Energy Supercross Fan Wellness page.

Track Info:

Supercross tracks are usually made for races involving off-road motorcycles. These are meant to have a lot of steep jumps. Obstacles are frequently used on the Supercross track. These tracks are generally constructed inside a stadium. The dirt tracks involve a set of different types of obstacles. For example:

Rhythm Sections: These are irregular series of jumps with different combinations.

Whoop Sections: The riders jump over the tops of several bumps in a row.

Triple Jumps: A single leap of approximately 70 feet consisting of three jumps in a row.

These obstacles make most of the turns full of banked berms. Some others are flat turns.Almost five hundred truckloads of dirt are needed to build a Supercross track. Soil conditions of the track can be of various types: hard or soft, sandy or muddy, or with a combined configuration.Supercross made the off-road motorcycles racing popular in the USA. Over the past 40 years, a huge fan base has created by Supercross worldwide. As a result other countries also started organizing this even in their regions. Though AMA tried to bring the variations in Supercross format to attract more fans, sometimes they failed but did not lose its appeal.
