What about switching the final round of AMA Supercross to the MEC?

With all the hoopla about this race fucking with people going to the nations or people not attending due to the off season and it's a one of event...

What if we made the final round at Vegas just be the MEC?

Instead of keeping the lowest score wins, you keep the main events points as usual. This could give someone who is somewhat close in points a huge possibility to make up points at the final round. Everyone is there (barring injuries, of course) it's a championship event, the final round, a million dollars on the line, etc. Exposure would be massive.

No more odd placing of a one off in the fall so these dudes can actually get a decent off season and rest. Everyone shows up because it's a points paying event. Someone 30 points down at the final round is still totally capable of taking the title. The only downfall is finding somewhere to race the all star class since the regular 250's would take precedence over that. There's supposedly already going to be the MEC format at select rounds this year, why not?

Give me a reason why this wouldn't make more sense.

Actually; I really like this idea. Something for the powers that be to think about.

I think this is a great idea! Maybe hold the amateur classes before the pro classes, and then just have a really long broadcast. Finding a spot for the AMs would be the hardest thing to do.

Actually a great idea. This way everybody is pushing towards the million dollars instead of the bullshit between Dungey and Tomac we saw in the final Vegas round this year.

not sure how you get red bull and monster to share the 1,000,000 dollar prize. Besides "the powers to be" get two crowds not one.

be nice to see a little more creativity for the last race of the season and make it a bigger point value.

Not gonna happen..

Final in Vegas is usually has a big crowd. Monster cup has a big crowd.

If they did this the organizers would miss out on money from one big crowd and alot of PPV sold.

I really like that idea and with the rumours of them having a few races with the same format it works out perfectly.

Idk but you should give me credit for the idea. Been saying it for months.

I thought MEC should be like a mid-season all star weekend type of deal. More fun than anything. Just like all the other sports that run an all-star event. Not off season, or at the beginning or end of the season. Dead middle.

it sure would force everyone to be there to race...
