FELD ANNOUNCES NEW SUPERCROSS SEASON UPDATE: 7 MORE ROUNDS LATER IN THE YEAR
[UPDATE MARCH 25, 2020 10:50 am]
This is great news! We don’t have any dates or locations yet, but at least we can now confirm that the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross is not over and it will go on! First, the UNLV and Rice-Eccles Stadiums in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Salt Lake City, Utah, posted on their websites that the races on April 25th and May 2nd were canceled and they were handing out refunds for tickets already bought. Now, FELD Entertainment has broke the news that the rounds are canceled, but they have also confirmed that the season is not over yet. Rounds the final seven rounds of the 2020 season are now scheduled to be completed later in the year, although when and where they will be racing has not been determined. We recently interviewed Alex Martin and he said that he hopes fans will come out in droves once we are back to racing and we hope the same. Read the official from FELD Entertainment below:
Feld Entertainment press release: “The 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, is now scheduled to complete rounds 11-17 later this year. The race locations and dates have not been finalized.
FINAL TWO ROUNDS OF SUPERCROSS CANCELED
After the Daytona Supercross round, the rest of the 2020 Supercross series was canceled, save for the last two rounds in Salt Lake City, Utah and Las Vegas, Nevada. Today we found that these final two rounds have also been canceled. There has been no official release from Feld yet, but on both of the ticket sites for the two rounds show that races have been canceled and are issuing refunds.
Below is what was released on the UNLV’s ticket website for the Las Vegas, Nevada Supercross round:
Due to the increasing spread of COVID-19 and expanding restrictions on domestic and international travel, and in accordance with national state and local governments prohibiting large group gatherings, the 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross scheduled for April 25, 2020 has been canceled.
A full refund of all fees and charges will be issued to your credit card used for purchase. If you have any additional questions or concerns, contact UNLVtickets by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens now? Are Eli Tomac, Dylan Ferrandis and Chase Sexton your 2020 Supercross champions, or are they going to have SX rounds after the outdoor series during the winter months? That is probably what Feld is trying to figure out.
