The 17-round schedule for the 2019 season of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, will deepen its live event footprint with new and returning markets and the debut of Supercross Futures, an AMA Amateur National Championship.
Highlights of the reinvigorated 2019 schedule include the notable addition of Nashville's Nissan Stadium for the first time in the sport's 45-year history before swinging through Denver's Broncos Stadium at Mile High for the first time since 1996. The series will commence at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, which has hosted the most rounds in the history of supercross, and continues virtually nonstop, returning to Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan, and MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, which were both last on the schedule in 2017.
To continue shaking up the competition while maximizing the importance of earning every point toward the overall championship, the 2019 schedule will once again feature three fan-favorite Triple Crown events and two East-West Showdowns, which will be revealed on October 23 when tickets go on sale. Monster Energy Kawasaki's Eli Tomac will look to defend his inaugural premier-class championship within a championship as the Triple Crown pits riders in each class against each other in three Main Events, adding to the super competitiveness of the series.
Supercross Futures, an AMA National Championship, will build upon the success of 2018's four supercross amateur racing events, with Glendale being the first of eight beginning on January 13, 2019. The innovative concept will provide even greater access to the sport's largest stage and help to foster a professional learning environment for budding amateur athletes earlier in their careers, while enabling top amateurs to earn Road to Supercross points toward their professional AMA Supercross license. Supercross Futures events will take place on Sunday directly following Saturday's professional events with the championship being held October 20-21, 2019, after the Monster Energy Cup on October 19 in Las Vegas.
Before the 2019 season officially begins, the sport's top athletes will battle it out in Las Vegas on October 13 at the invite-only all-star event—the Monster Energy Cup. Following a second-place 450SX class finish in 2018, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Marvin Musquin will return to Sam Boyd Stadium and attempt to defend his 2017 Monster Energy Cup title. If successful, Musquin will become the first athlete to ever win the "Monster Million" twice.
