Unlike any other race, the Monster Energy Cup challenges riders to compete in three, 10-lap Main Events on a custom-designed track, inspired by five-time Supercross Class Champion Ricky Carmichael.
The Monster Energy Cup posts a $250,000 purse with the winner walking away with a $100,000 check, and any rider that wins all three Main Events will take home $1 million. This feat has only occurred once in the history of the Monster Energy Cup when Ryan Villopoto grabbed the honor in 2011. This year’s Cup is expected to bring out Supercross’ all-star athletes and fans can expect an epic battle among the sport’s top competitors on Saturday, Oct. 14 at Sam Boyd Stadium.
Fans can enjoy a full day of entertainment at the Monster Energy Cup Pit Party from 12 – 6 p.m., including rider autograph sessions, live music, freestyle motocross and experiential elements. Pit passes are $20 each and can be purchased through UNLVtickets.com or 702-739-FANS, or get free access by simply recycling an empty can of Monster Energy. At the same time, inside the stadium, riders will be sharpening their skills during practice and qualifying for their starting gate position in the Main Event.
Tickets for the 2017 Monster Energy Cup start at $20 plus fees and can be purchased at the Thomas & Mack Center Box Office, UNLVtickets outlets at La Bonita Supermarkets, online at UNLVtickets.com, SupercrossLive.com, or by phone at 702-739-FANS.
