AMA SUPERCROSS NEW VENUE- METLIFE STADIUM, NJ

NEW VENUE- EAST RUTHERFORD, NEW JERSEY

This weekend the Monster Energy AMA Supercross team will transform MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey into a supercross track for the first time in history. Race fans and riders have been buzzing about Round Sixteen at East Rutherford all year long and the time has finally come for the best riders in the world to flood Metropolitan New York. This round in New Jersey has been a big stepping-stone for the sport, as it moves into one of the most heavily populated areas of the United States of America. The metropolitan area is home to the most knowledgeable and passionate sports fans in the world and will now experience the excitement of this one of a kind sport for the first time in history.

Ryan Villopoto leads the championship points chase heading into this weekend at MetLife Stadium. Villopoto has the opportunity to clinch the championship title this weekend sitting forty-eight points ahead of James Stewart.

James Stewart stands to be the only man on the track who can shut down Villopoto’s hopes of clinching his fourth straight supercross title. On any given weekend Stewart can be the fastest guy on the track, hands down. However, if any one of the many variables is out place and Villopoto beats him, Villopoto will clinch and the guys will head to Vegas to battle over second.

In a class stacked all the way to the back with past champions, this season has been the hardest season yet to find consistency. Monster Energy/Kawasaki has been the team to come as close as possible to consistency in a sport of unpredictable variables and outcomes this year. Ryan Villopoto has led the majority of the series in the premier 450 class, while teammates Cianciarulo and Davalos dominated the west 250SX class. Mitch Payton and the factory Kawasaki team have been honoured as the most dominant team in the sport.

MetLife Stadium will also host the 250SX East Class on Saturday night in New Jersey. Martin Davalos will be looking to dominate Justin Bogle in hopes of extending his points lead. Coming off a second place finish last round in St. Louis, Bogle will be even more eager to prove his abilities.

Regardless of who you are cheering for, East Rutherford will surely host a night full of excitement, agony and victory.
