Feld Motor SportsÂ® announced today that Nick Wey, of Dewitt, Mich., will race the 2012 Monster Energy Cup at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium on October 20.
“With everything that is going [this time of year] here is a lot of team changing and things like that,” said Wey. “A lot of people show up with new bikes so there is a lot of excitement involved in that race, let alone the chance of winning $1 million.”
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.
Tickets for the 2012 Monster Energy Cup can be purchased at the Thomas & Mack Center Box Office, UNLVtickets outlets, online at www.UNLVtickets.com, www.MonsterEnergyCup.com,Ã‚Â or by phone at (702) 739-FANS. Tickets will be available at the Sam Boyd Stadium Box Office on the day of the event only.
