Glendale Removed, Orlando, and Atlanta Added. Salt Lake City to Host Final Two Rounds.

Ellenton, Fla., (December 15, 2020) – 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.   


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 first seven races will now feature the Western Regional 250SX Class and the Eastern Regional 250SX Class will now debut in Orlando 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.

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.

Atlanta Motor Speedway (rather than the Mercedes-Benz Stadium) will be interesting.

Yep, that is a potentially great change, more like Daytona? Great opportunity there for other Nascar tracks.

That was one of the first things I noticed, really easy drives and money saver scheduling. Rent a house around Memphis and you're good.

I'm sure being an outdoor venue helped a bunch. Much less need to social distance. They can sell way more tickets.

I'm going to make a bold prediction and assume we are going to pay full price for 2021 SX & MX.

Not a bad schedule with what they have to work with. But switching coast a month before the season not cool.

Its like a bi-coastal series, if the Mississippi River was a coast.

Seems like not too long ago, Texas didn't have a single round of SX. Now they have SIX. Everything IS bigger in Texas!

Agreed! I've thought for years they should hold the SX race there for many reasons including that it will likely be awesome and hopefully have the Daytona SX feel. When will we be able to purchase tickets to this event?
