Monster Energy Supercross Responds to Growing International Demand by Offering Livestream Access for Second Consecutive Year

Paul Iverson

Feld Entertainment has announced the second season of the Supercross Video Pass will be available on September 1 and features significantly more Monster Energy Supercross content for fans outside of the U.S. and Canada, including an unprecedented amount of live and archived racing. In total, fans will have access to 240 hours of Supercross content that can be experienced on any type of connected device.

Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, is the most competitive and high profile off-road motorcycle racing series in the world and attracts nearly one million fans in live attendance over the course of the 17-race season. Its digital fan base boasts an even more impressive number, engaging with 10 million weekly viewers from all over the world.

"Supercross riders are some of the most elite athletes in the world. The excitement of motorcycle racing, the innovative track designs and the global representation of Supercross racers takes this sport beyond the borders of North America," said Vicki Silver, Chief Marketing Officer of Feld Entertainment.

The Supercross Video Pass will provide access to all 17 rounds of the 3-hour Monster Energy Supercross television broadcast (2018), every race from the last three seasons (2015-2017), plus the 2015 and 2016 Monster Energy Cup races and an additional library of original content.

According to research conducted by Hookit, the leading social and digital media measurement company, Supercross fans are among the most engaged consumers online, ranking the sport in the top-20 of global properties. The list includes the NBA, NFL, MLB, English Premier League Soccer, U.S. Soccer and the FIFA World Cup, impressively positioning Supercross higher than the ATP and PGA Tours.

Silver continues "With two thirds of the Supercross fan base living outside of the U.S. and Canada, we are responding to the overwhelming international demand for live racing and behind-the-scenes content. Last season's video pass was purchased by fans in more than 100 countries and we anticipate a much higher response with this year's enhanced package."

The Hookit research also shows that Supercross is the number one motor sport domestically and ranks in the top-10 of all U.S. and Canadian based teams and leagues, showing significantly stronger online engagement than powerhouse properties like NASCAR, MLS and the PGA Tour. For the study, more than seven million posts were analyzed across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter over a year period where views, shares, likes and comments were examined across 1,255 leagues, federations and teams internationally to determine who had the most engaged fan following.

In addition to racing, this year's Supercross Video Pass offers three full seasons of Chasing The Dream, the acclaimed, behind-the-scenes documentary-styled series, plus two additional, full-length episodes that feature the "Legends of Supercross" for fans outside of the U.S. and Canada.

Subscribers who purchase the 2018 Supercross Video Pass before October 14 will also receive access to the 2017 Monster Energy Cup. Single event passes will also be available for live and VoD access to any race, including the 2017 Monster Energy Cup taking place in Las Vegas on October 14, for $29.99. Access to video content will be provided through the mobile-responsive portal at supercrossLIVE.tv and via the Monster Energy Supercross Roku app.

Paul Iverson

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Immediately following the 58th annual DAYTONA 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday, Feb. 21, construction began in the tri-oval area between pit road and the start/finish line to create the demanding and challenging course for the Daytona Supercross By Honda, scheduled for Saturday night, March 5.

For the ninth straight year, Supercross legend Ricky Carmichael returns as the course designer and Bomber Built, owned by three-time AMA 125cc National Motocross Champion Mark Barnett, is building the Supercross course.

Carmichael retired from Supercross in 2007 as the most decorated rider in history with 15 AMA championships and 150 wins.

This year's Ricky Carmichael Signature Design course sees the starting gate return to pit road and competitors will race in a counterclockwise direction. A wide-open field of riders will compete for a coveted Daytona trophy, including Ryan Dungey, Trey Canard, Chad Reed, Ken Roczen, and Cole Seely.

Daytona International Speedway has been hosting the Daytona Supercross By Honda since 1971 and this marks the 25th year that Honda has sponsored the event. Among the Supercross greats that have captured the Daytona Supercross By Honda are Bob Hannah, Jeff Stanton, Jeremy McGrath and Carmichael.

Here's a look at some of the numbers behind the construction of this year’s Daytona Supercross By Honda course:

290 –Truckloads of dirt

5,000 – Tons of dirt

12 – Trucks used to transport the dirt into the Speedway

2 – Days to bring all of the dirt into the track

40 – Obstacles on the Daytona Supercross By Honda course

20 – Loads of new clay for the start gate

2 – Whoop sections

450 – Honda-branded Tuff Blocks

2,915 –length in feet of the Supercross course

500 – Man-hours (approximate) to set up the Daytona Supercross By Honda course

In addition, two crawlers, two front loaders and two skid steers are used to move the dirt during construction.

The Supercross Pits will be staged in the blue garages, which are located adjacent to the Sprint FANZONE and provide easy accessibility for the fans from noon to 5:30 p.m. – access is free with your race ticket.

Also returning in 2016 will be the seventh annual Ricky Carmichael Amateur Supercross. Scheduled for Sunday, March 6 and Monday, March 7, amateur Supercross racers will have an opportunity to test their skills on the same course used in the Daytona Supercross By Honda. Following the Ricky Carmichael Amateur Supercross will be the 2nd Annual FLY Racing ATV Supercross on Tuesday, March 8.

Tickets for the event are now on sale at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP. Advance general admission tickets for DAYTONA Supercross by Honda start at $45 and youth tickets (ages 6-12) start at $15; kids five and under are free in general admission stadium seating.
