Monster Energy Cup, Supercross’ Million-Dollar All-Star Race comes to SoCal - SAT OCT 10 - Tickets On Sale Now

2020-02-13 08:08
For the first time ever, the Monster Energy Cup, Supercross’ ultimate Million Dollar All-Star Race, will be moving from Las Vegas which has hosted the event since 2011 to debut the 10th annual race in Southern California inside Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, CA on Saturday October 10, 2020.



After two action-packed racing weekends at Angel Stadium of Anaheim launching the 2020 Supercross championship season in January, SoCal Supercross fan will get an extra adrenaline racing experience to become part of the most anticipated invitation-only races of the year! Competing in the 17-round Supercross racing season this year, the world’s top two-wheeled elite athletes will return to lay it all on the line for a shot at the off-season prize of the largest purse in motorcycle racing at the 10th Annual Monster Energy Cup race debuting in Los Angeles this Fall.



The Monster Energy Cup is an annual showcase of the world's top Supercross athletes in a one-night-only head-to-head battle for the coveted Monster Energy Cup trophy and the shot at winning $1 Million. The Monster Energy Cup challenges racers in their fight for victory with three, 10-Lap Main Events on a custom-designed track, inspired by five-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael. The Monster Energy Cup posts a $250,000 purse, with the winner guaranteed to walk away with a $100,000 check, and any rider who wins all three Main Events will take home $1 Million.



Unlike any other race in the world with a unique format giving the sport’s biggest names a chance to battle it out for the Monster Million, which has only been achieved three times since the event’s inception, last win in 2018 with Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac becoming only the third athlete in the history of the event to take the top prize. Last year in 2019, Adam Cianciarulo grabbed the trophy to win $100,000 in his first 450SX Class rookie debut.



Marking one of the first ever motorsports events to be held at the Digital Health Sports Park complex (formerly the StubHub Center) based on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH), Monster Energy Cup will be turning the home field of the LA Galaxy, Major League Soccer’s five-time champions, into a man-made dirt battleground with over 1.5 million pounds of dirt covering the soccer field for this epic all-day racing event. The Monster Energy Cup is seen by many racers, teams and fans as the event that kicks off the next Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season as it allows teams to try new bikes, riders and bike set ups in a high stress environment, yet throws enough unique elements to challenge riders and machines in new ways.



Fans can enjoy a full day of entertainment at the Monster Energy Cup FanFest from 12 PM – 6 PM, including rider autograph sessions, live music and additional interactive experiences. FanFest passes are $20 each and can be purchased in advance through AXS.com or fans get free access by recycling an empty can of Monster Energy. At the same time, inside the stadium, riders will be sharpening their skills during practice and qualifying for their starting gate position.
