The foundation of the SuperMotocross World Championship has been jointly announced today by Feld Motor Sports, Inc. and MX Sports Pro Racing. The two businesses will collaborate to develop both Supercross and Motocross as part of this new collaboration. They will also develop a new championship platform that will reward the top competitors with a $10 million purse, the largest sum ever offered in any sport.
The professional racing season will extend beginning in 2023 and conclude on Saturday, October 14 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California, with the SuperMotocross World Championship.
Kenneth Feld, President and CEO, said: “With the establishment of the SuperMotocross World Championship, we are taking an important step towards evolving the sport along a chain that is more relevant to the market global expansion and its impact on our fans and sponsors come." SuperMotocross will be able to take use of these developments to reach new audiences and grow rapidly in the upcoming years as media and technology continue to advance.
At the conclusion of their separate series, the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship and the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will both continue to crown their own champions. The top 22 riders in the 250cc and 450cc classes, respectively, will then be eligible to race in the two SuperMotocross Playoff Rounds and World Championship round for the SuperMotocross #1 plate and the sport's largest payment.
The SuperMotocross World Championship will merge both the disciplines of Supercross and Pro Motocross, introducing a new and distinct form of racing known as SuperMotocross. Tracks with unique designs will be constructed to display this novel form of racing. The sport's ultimate debate—who is the best in the world—can finally be settled on a stage thanks to world-class venues that will give opportunity to merge the best track designs from Supercross, Pro Motocross, and now SuperMotocross. This will lead to the crowning of a new overall champion.
In the upcoming weeks, the schedules for the 2023 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship and the 2023 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship, both sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, will be released. Later in the year, SuperMotocross World Championship dates, locations, and other information will be released. For Pro Motocross and Supercross latest news and detail visit at SupercrossTVLive.com.
