2020 MONSTER ENERGY SUPERCROSS RACE SCHEDULE: YOU CAN BELIEVE THAT THIS ONE IS ACCURATE
THE 2020 MONSTER ENERGY SUPERCROSS SCHEDULE HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED
The 17-round schedule for the 2020 season of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series has been made official and it might surprise you. The FIM World Championship will return to some of the sport’s most iconic stadiums while also bringing back the St. Louis, Mo., Tampa, Fla. and Foxborough, Mass. venues back into the running. The most surprising change for 2020 is that the season finale has moved from it’s home in Las Vegas to the state of Utah on Saturday, May 2 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City. We are shocked to think that Las Vegas won’t hold the finale next year, but it makes sense when we step back and look how many sporting events have been moved to Utah. Utah has been nicknamed the State of Sport and we’re guessing Utah fought hard in encouraging FELD to bring the finale there. Las Vegas is still on the schedule, but this year it will be the penultimate round.

BACK TO BACK 27-HOUR DRIVES
Another big change for 2020 is the move of the second round. Teams and riders in the 450 class will race the annual season opener at Anaheim on the first Saturday of January, but instead of making the five and a half hour drive Glendale, Arizona for round two, they will have to drive 27 hours to St. Louis, Missouri. After round two, everyone will have to load back up again and drive the same 27 hours back to California for to race again the next Saturday in Anaheim.
The biggest change for 2020 is that the finale has moved from Las Vegas to Salt Lake City.
Las Vegas has hosted the final race for the past 23 seasons and remains on the schedule as the penultimate round of the season which will then head to Salt Lake City for the finale and title crowning.
