Monster Energy AMA Supercross Information
(Salt Lake City, UT) – Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, returns to bring the world’s premier off-road motorcycle racing championship series back to Salt Lake City on Saturday, April 28th – marking the 16th round (and final race before wrapping up the season in Las Vegas) of the most exciting racing season of all-time as a new era of competition will change the battleground forever with several new format changes to the most competitive and highest-profile motorcycle racing championship in the world that has entertained millions of fans for 43 years!
For the first time in over two decades, the 2018 season will debut an all-new points system to evenly allocate points over all 22 finishing positions. While the gap between 1st, 2nd and 3rd has not changed, the new points system will ensure that the race to the championship will be much more competitive throughout the season as the reward is greater for a better finish.
Also the elimination of semi races in qualifying for the Main Event will add further pressure to qualify as the world’s most elite endurance athletes will have just two chances to ensure a spot in the Main Event through one of two heat races or a last chance qualifier (LCQ). This year, the Top 9 in each heat will qualify directly into the Main Event while positions 10-20 will have one last chance to make it through the LCQ. Previously, only five positions would transfer to the Main Event from the heat races and all others would be transferred to a semi race. Eliminating the semi races will make for longer heat races and last chance qualifiers, allowing for more intense battles on the track for the fans.
Without a past champion potentially on the gate in 2018, the international field is wide open for the world’s most elite athletes to become a first-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion. Along with all the new format changes, every track in 2018 will have a distinct personality that tells the story of each city’s Supercross history.
