“Supercross Returns to Hawaiʻi"

We are pleased to announce that the long awaited return of the Hawaiian Supercross is now scheduled for May 11th 2019. This prestigious event will feature riders from around the globe all gathering at the Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Oʻahu. Just one week after the highly anticipated Monster X Tour event, the Aloha Stadium will be transformed into a world class Supercross track.

Our goal is to create an evening to remember, for this to become an annual tradition for locals to enjoy with family. We are fully committed to making this an unforgettable night of racing and excitement. We are putting together a great list of riders and so far we will have Daytona Supercross winner Justin Brayton, Mike Alessi, Josh Hill and many more to be announced soon" commented Sports Organizer Eric Peronnard.

Daniel Torgerson CEO of the Hawaiian Supercross stated “We’re very excited to be bringing Supercross back to Hawaiʻi. It’s hard to believe that nearly 20 years have passed since the last Hawaiian Supercross event—we’re genuinely thrilled that now the people of Hawaiʻi will have an opportunity to experience an action packed evening up close and personal with top professional athletes.

The pit party starts at 4pm with the night show kicking off at 7.30pm. Spectators will be given a full night of bar-banging, pulse-pounding action. In addition, we’ll be featuring X-Games FreeStyle MX riders doing tons of tricks including backflips throughout the evening.

TICKET INFORMATION: ON-SALE Friday, March 22nd at 10:00 am HST… _Advance discount tickets are available online at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000, or at the Aloha Stadium Box Office

Sounds like I need to take my first ever trip to Hawaii! w00t

Have a friend that used to live there. He told me they had 1 track, with 5-6 different sections they could add or remove.

Sounds legit, I love seeing stuff like this. #GrowTheSport

The wife was just bugging me about going there this morning. Well maybe now she has a chance at convincing me.

Nice. And on my birthday too!!!

Wonder if this is a test for Feld to see how things go and potential push towards eliminating nationals...gotta go where the money is right?

I'd love for my boy to take a stab at racing if he enjoys it (6 months old), but I think non-stop SX is a disaster waiting to happen as there is no doubt in my opinion SX is more dangerous than MX.

Anyone remember the last time they did it? Not good

Isnt Brayton injured with torn ACL? I don't see this being too popular from a logistics standpoint for everyone. No top names are going to race this and privateers can't afford it. Who's going to race this? Locals? No way it will be a full gate. Hawaiians that have to fly from other islands, so it's too expensive just for this one event to bring the kids. If you're local on another island that wants to race you have to put your bike on a boat, then fly to Oahu, then pick your bike at the dock, race, put your bike back on another boat, fly home, then pick up your bike from the dock. It's a big, expensive PITA for everyone from racers to spectators.

If its a success that would be great. I just dont see it.

This is the guy that has Endurocross, if there's a chance of it being a success I'd bet on him.

Eric Peronnard is helping put this together. Expect a selection of privateers, not big teams.

|

No different than the other non-mainstream overseas races...Privateer guys, suitcase with some suspension and bars, and bolt them on some local guys hoopty.

I'm a bit skeptical as well; nice locale, sounds good on paper but doing it between the SX season and outdoors; no good. It should have been held in October or early November. Better riders available and more participation would ensure it's success and made a nice post season break. Race Vegas, then Hawaii, think a lot of folks (fans and racers) would dig that.

I’ve been to every supercross race that was held at Aloha Stadium. There will usually be a couple of fast guys, and the rest of the field is made up of local riders. Unfortunately most of the locals are way slower and end up being obstacles on the track, and crashing their brains out.
Unless something changes drastically from the past, there will be no Factory riders there.
I highly suggest looking at the entry list before making plans

I was just there drove by the stadium daily. Was going back in May

I think Chisholm mentioned he was going. That was before this weekends wreck though.

What a disaster!! No money,multiple venue changes,monsoon style rain. Icing on the cake was all the bikes rusted up and stained in the container after.

Wonder if Max Markolf will do this? I think this may be quick money for him.

|

3/26/2019 8:44 AM

No top names will be there.

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

May 11th? Hangtown is May 18. Why would anybody risk racing an additional round of sx after the season already ended.

Quick trip to hawaii before season starts with the possibility to win some cash to pay for said trip. Sounds good to me, just hope it’s not a shit show like the last time they gave it a go. (Doesn’t sound like it so far).

Swat, do you remember late 80s/early 90s Aloha SX races? RJ, Manley, Wardy, Matiasavich....

|

3/26/2019 5:59 PM

Now that you mention it, I do remember RJ being there. Definitely not on a works bike though. Pretty sure Flyin Brian came over at least once. But I don’t believe either was still in their prime at that point. Don’t remember Wardy or Chicken, but it was a long time ago and my memory isn’t perfect

|

3/26/2019 8:09 PM

RJ wasn't on a works bike- he had a Pacific Honda bike w/ suspension he brought with him. I was pitted next to Manley at that race and I think Myerscough was there that year too. Manley and RJ could not have been nicer. The next year, Ward was cool and Chicken was not.
