While some of my friends have been to a Supercross before, I had never been and had no idea what to expect.
The Monster Energy Supercross came to Salt Lake City, Utah last weekend at Rice-Eccles Stadium. It was a one-day event.
To start it all off, I had never been to this stadium before that I can recall and so instead of following our trusty Google Maps, we followed the signs for parking which suddenly stopped so we decided to park in a parking lot. As we walked towards the stadium, we realized that there were hundreds of closer parking spots but didn’t want to go back for our car so we walked about a mile to the stadium and was totally late for the event. We chatted with our friends and they had done the same thing. So funny.
Once it all started, it was so fun to watch all of the motorcyclists race each other on the track. There were a few accidents and close calls with a lot of upsets. The exciting ones were at the end when they were racing for 15 and 20 minutes but unfortunately for our family, it got a little late (we left around 10:45 pm) so we missed the last couple of races.
When we go again, we’ll be sure to make sure we have warm clothes (it turned into a chilly night), blankets, and a little extra money for some food to keep us occupied between races.
