Feld Motor SportsÂ® announced today that Broc Tickle, of Holly, Mich., will race in the Monster Energy Cup at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium on October 20.
At last year’s Monster Energy Cup, Tickle made his debut on a 450cc motorcycle and capped off the night placing 16th overall, finishing 16-18-9.
“It was a pretty cool event,” said Tickle. “The track was good last year, but I’m really excited to see what they come up with for this year. I’m sure they’ll have some new ideas. I like how everyone who shows up has a good shot at making the main event so that makes it great for the privateers.”
The former Western Regional Supercross Lites Class Champion moved up to the Supercross Class for the 2012 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season and has locked in nine top-10 finishes. With one race remaining, Tickle sits 10th in the point standings.
“Having a million up for grabs is pretty exciting though you have to win all three motos, which is not an easy task,” added Tickle. “I’m thinking more guys will be lining up at the gates this year knowing that the $1 million prize is achievable.”
The 2012 Monster Energy Cup features an all-new track design inspired by five-time Supercross Class Champion Ricky Carmichael. The Carmichael-inspired track design will consist of supercross and motocross obstacles unlike any other racetrack design in the world. More than 200′ of the track will be built into the grandstands, and the riders exit the stadium and race through the Monster Energy Fan Zone outside of the stadium and through the pit area before they catapult back into the stadium. 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.
