About AMA Supercross
Supercross is an off-road motorcycle racing sport that takes place on artificially-made dirt tracks with obstacles and jumps, with most races held in professional baseball and football stadiums. Supercross grew out of the sport of Motocross and shares many similarities. The primary differences are that Supercross is more heavily advertised and events are televised and held in major cities. Supercross was specifically tailored to TV and Supercross tracks are more difficult than and not as fast as Motocross. The "Super Bowl of Motocross" was held in 1972 inside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California and 16-year-old Marty Tripes won the event, which featured top Motocross riders. The successful event inspired many imitators, and the term “Supercross” was coined. Modern Supercross races are governed and sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), the oldest cycle racing organization in America. After steadily growing in popularity since the 1970's, the sport’s popularity skyrocketed after 2000 and today is the second hottest motorsport ticket behind NASCAR tickets. Three Supercross Champions are awarded every year: Supercross Champion, Supercross Lites East Champion and Supercross Lites West Champion. World Supercross Champions are named by other organizations around the world. AMA legendary rider Ricky Carmichael is the only rider to win the AMA and World Championship in the same year.
There are 17 major tracks for the AMA Supercross all around the US and the AMA series runs from December until May and Supercross Class consists of 17 rounds. Supercross Lites West, which starts in December, and the Supercross Lites East, which starts in February, both consist of 8 rounds. The final round East-West Shootout takes place in May. Supercross class heats have 8 laps, and Supercross Lites class heats have 6 laps, with 20 riders in both classes. In both classes, the winner of the main event receives 25 points. Supercross class has 20 laps in the main event, while Lite classes have 15. Riders also receive a $1,000 Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot award for leading the pack into the first turn.
The world of Supercross is changing and with it we are seeing a dynamic shift in the top positions in the sport. When the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) merged for the 2008 AMA Supercross calendar, we saw a thrilling Super Cross that not only sold tons of AMA Supercross tickets but led to the growing popularity of spin-offs like Arenacross tickets and the Monster Jam Truck schedule. Current AMA Supercross combines the American Supercross Series and the FIM World Supercross into one championship. AMA Supercross tickets are moving and the AMA Supercross schedule is bursting with some of the best scrambling action seen on two wheels. The grand finale in Las Vegas, Nevada is a testament to the growth of AMA Supercross, as Supercross tickets to Sam Boyd Stadium sell like crazy. Everyone wants to see AMA Supercross riders like Ricky Carmichael and Chad Reed hitting the course, because these guys are true heroes to kids into this electric sport.
