Feld Motor Sports has announced that CBS Sports TV will showcase the highly anticipated Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, preview show Sunday, December 25 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time USA. The one-hour season preview show will foreshadow what’s to be expected when the gates drop on the 2012 Monster Energy Supercross Championship from Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California January 7.
The depth of talent in the 2012 field is the deepest the sport has ever seen as it enters its 37th season. Nine different riders – Chad Reed, Ryan Villopoto, Ryan Dungey, James Stewart, Trey Canard, Kevin Windham, Josh Hill, Josh Grant and Davi Millsaps have earned Supercross Class wins during their careers. Among them, Stewart, Reed, Dungey and Villopoto have captured the coveted Supercross Class championship.
CBS Sports will give an insider’s perspective on the multi-faceted season that lies ahead and provide an update on the developments of Stewart and Dungey’s camps as the season draws near. Once the season gets underway, CBS Sports TV will provide a Monster Energy Supercross special on February 26, 2012, at Noon Eastern Time and a Monster Energy Supercross Season Recap show on May 6, 2012 at Noon Eastern Time.
Says Charlie Mancuso, President of Feld Motor Sports: “Network coverage on CBS Sports is the perfect platform to showcase the highly anticipated 2012 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship.”
Beyond the competition, 2012 is being tabbed as a significant season of change for many of the sport’s biggest names. Most notably are the respective moves of both Stewart and Dungey. After three years with San Manuel Yamaha, Stewart made a high-profile move to Joe Gibbs Racing and the Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX stable, while Dungey will compete professionally on a machine other than Suzuki for the first time in his career, rejoining mentor and team manager Roger De Coster at Red Bull KTM.
