The Monster Energy Cup is the Daytona 500 of Supercross

Supercross monster energy cupIf you’re not a Supercross fan, what are you waiting for? Some of the world’s best riders face-off on a dirt track…in a stadium. There are big jumps, tight corners and neck-and-neck battles for position. They basically compacted the best parts of Motocross that gives spectators the best view possible.

It took me awhile to really become a Supercross fan. Television doesn’t quite capture the experience. I went to an event at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis with some friends…and after that, I was hooked. I’ve been to a few other events since and actively search for it on television.

Can Davi Millsaps repeat this year and take home another Monster Energy Cup?

Last year’s Monster Energy Cup wasn’t an easy win for Millsaps. Trey Canard won the first two races and had a shot to win $1 million, but he crashed twice in the finale. He finished in eighth place in the finale. Millsaps won the finale to take home the cup and $100,000 purse.

Justin Barcia, Ryan Villopoto, Chad Reed and many other rides are expected to battle for a potential $1 million payday.

This year’s race will be held on October 17th in Las Vegas at Sam Boyd Stadium. It will be aired live on Fox Sports One, but if you’re within driving distance, I highly recommend seeing this one live.
