How Much Did They Earn? | New Supercross Purse Payout Revealed - 2023 Anaheim 1 14

It's a new year in the sport and exciting times! With all the talk of the World SuperMotocross Championship, and with its increased prize money, we figured it was time to dive in and see how much of that is being extended to the AMA Monster Energy Supercross Championship. With a reported amount of $10,000,000 being paid this year between all three series, the majority going to the SMX Cup, we weren't sure how much of a change we would really see. To get a better idea of what's changed, we've put together a comparison of the outgoing 250 class purse and the new payout, along with doing the same for the 450 class. Finally, below all of that, is the earnings for each rider in each class from Anaheim 1. A statistic that we will keep track of all year and continue to update on.

First off, let's take a look at the previous purse for the 250 class and the new payout for 2023. The prior purse we have on this list is from 2017, as there's no online source for anything more recent. The 250 class has definitely been affected the most by this change and while we'd always like to see more get paid the gladiators of our sport, it's still nice to see some progression.

We requested a copy of the 2022 purse and still haven't received it at the time of publishing. From what we're aware, the 2022 purse was a little higher than in 2017 but not by much. Making this list below a still fairly reliable comparison. The 2023 purse payouts were provided to us via a racer.

2023 450 Class Purse for
Complete Season: $1,768,850

 

A few notes on what else this means:

1. The total purse payout, per event, with classes combined, is now $180,000. Compared to the roughly $127,000 in 2022. That's an increase of about $53,000 per event.

2. The total purse payout, for the complete season, with classes combined, is now $3,060,000. Compared to $2,159,340. An increase of $900,680.

3. The total purse payout for the 2022 World Supercross Championship was $250,000 per event, $70,000 more than the US SX series. The WSX series paid 44 riders per event, while the US AMA SX series pays a total of 80 riders per event.

With the 2023 total purse between AMA Monster Energy Supercross, AMA Pro Motocross, and the AMA World SuperMotocross Championship being $10,000,000...when we remove the $3,060,000 from Supercross, that leaves us with $6,940,000 left for Motocross and SuperMotocross. With the rumored payout for SuperMotocross to be around $5,000,000, that would leave just shy of $2,000,000 for the 2023 Pro Motocross Championship. With the prior purse in that series being around $1,600,000 for the whole season across 48 motos, this would leave just shy of a $400,000 increase across 44 total motos (with one event being eliminated from that schedule, thus taking away four motos). This of course only being true if the SuperMotocross purse does match up to the rumored five million dollars total payout.

Now onto the Anaheim 1 payouts per class. This is a feature we will be updating frequently and tracking the total payouts for the season. As many of our readers and fans of the sport are aware, the top riders in the sport receive personal bonuses from the OEMs they race for and even some riders get gear, energy drinks, and other personal endorsements bonuses based on their performances. For the 450 class, these bonuses combined are well North of $100,000 per win, so the purse is a lower part of their total per-race earnings.
