With a sold-out crowd of over 45,000 fans looking on in slack jawed awe and a couple million rabid supercross fanatics watching via live network television, the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Championship launches on Saturday night, January 7, 2023. The starting gate clanks into the dirt of Angel Stadium of Anaheim, California, thus launching the 50th annual season of the absolute and undisputed apex of action sports.
The world-class Monster Energy supercross racers Eli Tomac, Chase Sexton, and Jason Anderson, will clear off in title fighting fury, visiting 16 cities spread across 12 states including California, Texas, Florida, Washington, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Colorado.
“The 2022 Monster Energy Supercross season was just epic,” pointed out seven-time supercross champion, Monster Energy athlete and the undisputed greatest supercross racer of all-time Jeremy McGrath. “I thought the ’22 showdown between Tomac, Anderson, and Sexton was great. Just when you thought one of the other guys was going to take over and become a champion, Tomac had of his best races ever! It was like, ‘Whoa, Eli isn’t ready for that yet!’”
“I really think the sport is super healthy and 2023 Monster Energy Supercross is going to be awesome. You have Eli Tomac, who has been unbelievable. He had the best season of his life in 2022. I certainly think Chase Sexton is the next guy. I think Honda is sitting in a really, really good position with Chase. I’m a fan of Chase. He’s an unbelievable rider. He’s also really coming around on the personality-side. He’s showing a little flavor with his interviews and funny glasses and his bleached hair and all that. I like it!”
“I think we’re going to see some epic battles in supercross between Tomac and Sexton. Eli is tapped out as far as confidence and ability. He’s a veteran, and he’s been in the game a long time. And Chase, when he’s on, he’s pretty unbeatable. The question with Chase will be if he can get his mental side of the game really, really, really on point because Eli has does have that.”
“And we also cannot forget Jason Anderson of the Monster Energy Kawasaki team,” furthered McGrath. “Fans might forget that Jason won seven supercross main events in 2022 and only lost the championship to Tomac by nine points. That’s a very close title fight.”
