AURORA, Ill. – Feld Motor Sports® unveiled today the track design for the Monster Energy Cup that will take place at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium on October 19. Designed by five-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael, this year’s Monster Energy Cup track will be so massive that the stadium itself can’t contain it.
The feedback from riders and fans alike was that last year’s Monster Energy Cup track provided some of the sport’s best racing, so the goal this year was to amplify the existing model. It was a simple solution for Carmichael: Use most of last year’s track elements and reverse the layout.
“The Monster Energy Cup track layout has continued to be on the challenging side and host great racing,” said defending Monster Energy Cup Champion Justin Barcia. “Carmichael always comes up with interesting concepts and ideas that blend motocross and supercross elements, so to hear the 2013 track layout has been reversed from last year’s design brings a whole new level of uniqueness to this race.”
