2020 MONSTER ENERGY SUPERCROSS RACE SCHEDULE: CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 POSTPONES SUPERCROSS

ReliantStadium Supercross postponed coronavirus

THE 2020 MONSTER ENERGY SUPERCROSS SCHEDULE HAS BEEN DISRUPTED – FIVE RACES CANCELLED WHILE THE REST IS POSTPONED FOR NOW


The 17-round schedule for the 2020 season of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series has been completely shaken up after the world-wide pandemic of the Coronavirus or COVID-19 cancelled and postponed the 2020 Supercross season and practically every other event across the world. Currently, the 2020 season is in limbo as FELD Entertainment is operating at the mercy of the virus and the local and federal governments regulations. The Seattle Supercross was the first SX event to be cancelled because of the virus when Washington governor Jay Inslee prohibited events of 250 people or more to be held in Seattle, Washington, and the surrounding counties. Then, shortly after Seattle was cancelled, the Indianapolis Supercross was canceled as well. Now, rounds 11 through 17 have been canceled, but FELD Entertainment has announced on March 25th that they plan to finish the final seven rounds of the season at a later date. We still don’t know when and where the races will be held, but at least we can have hope that the season will be finished and Champions will be crowned.

2020 SUPERCROSS ORIGINAL SCHEDULE: NO GOOD ANYMORE

Nashville Stadium_Track_2019 Nashville Supercross-9629The stadiums will be empty for a while. Even if they finish the 2020 season, there won’t be any fans allowed to attend, it will only be shown on TV and with the NBC Sports Gold pass.

For the 2020 season, the 250 West division was slated to compete in 10 events, while the 250 East riders were only scheduled to compete in 9 after you tally up the two East/West Shootouts in Denver, Colorado, and at the season finale in Salt Lake City, Utah. Now, with the cancellations and the final two rounds being postponed, we aren’t sure what will happen. Eli Tomac and Ken Roczen were tied in points going into Daytona, but after a late-race pass, Eli Tomac snagged the win and the points lead. So what now? Did Eli win the Championship? We don’t know how that will work out and it won’t be announced until FELD makes an official statement on if they will be able to finish the season or not.
