Yes the 2020 schedule has been announced and there has been a slew of shifts in the schedule. Yes A1 (Anaheim CA) kick off the series but a big surprise is round two races back to Saint Louis on January 11 and then the series has to race back to Anaheim CA for A2 then the rest of the West Coast opening rounds. Round 7 goes completely across the country to Florida before it kind of stays on the South and East Coasts for a spell. The big surprise is no final round in Las Vegas? Maybe they are saving that city for the Monster Cup or waiting for Vegas to build the new Stadium? The Schedule is the schedule but a little harsh for small teams or privateers chasing the dream. But I guess they don’t make the show any better, its the big names and Factory riders that sell seats, popcorn thrills and spills. You better stay healthy for the 17 round series because there is only one break in the series.
It could be a really solid series if the top dogs enter the series healthy and maybe Tomac can be Tomac for the entire series?

“Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship is where the best riders in the world battle for the ‘number one’ plate. It is a demanding and intense series of 17 events in just 18 weeks,” said Jorge Viegas, FIM President. “Demanding for the riders and teams, yet exciting for the fans worldwide who cannot wait to see their heroes enter the stadium and challenge the track. Last season we saw the ‘outsider’ Cooper Webb win the Championship in style beating the likes of Tomac, Musquin, Roczen and Anderson. Only time will tell if he can do it again in 2020.”
Lastly, in its second full season, Supercross Futures, an AMA Amateur National Championship, will take place in ten select markets while continuing to establish itself as the world’s premier developmental platform for amateur Supercross racing. The 2020 national championship will take place in October following the Monster Energy Cup. Dates and location will be announced later in the year.
All tickets for the 2020 season will go on sale Tuesday, October 8 with a presale date of Tuesday, October 1. Triple Crown events and 250SX Class East/West Showdown races will be revealed when tickets go on sale.
Before the 2020 season officially begins, the sport’s top athletes will battle it out in Las Vegas on October 19 at the invite-only all-star event – the Monster Energy Cup. Following a second-place 450SX Class finish in 2019, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac will return to Sam Boyd Stadium and attempt to defend his 2018 Monster Energy Cup title. If successful, Tomac will become the first athlete to ever win the “Monster Million” twice.
