2013 Monster Energy Cup Track Design Unveiled

Posted:



Feld Motor Sports unveiled today the track design for the Monster Energy Cup that will take place at Las Vegas‰Ûª Sam Boyd Stadium on October 19.

Designed by five-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael, this year‰Ûªs Monster Energy Cup track will be so massive that the stadium itself can‰Ûªt contain it.

The feedback from riders and fans alike was that last year‰Ûªs Monster Energy Cup track provided some of the sport‰Ûªs best racing, so the goal this year was to amplify the existing model. It was a simple solution for Carmichael: Use most of last year‰Ûªs track elements and reverse the layout.

"The Monster Energy Cup track layout has continued to be on the challenging side and host great racing," said defending Monster Energy Cup Champion Justin Barcia. "Carmichael always comes up with interesting concepts and ideas that blend motocross and supercross elements, so to hear the 2013 track layout has been reversed from last year's design brings a whole new level of uniqueness to this race."

‰ÛÏThe new changes such as the extended triple and two sweeper turns are really going put our skills to the test. We can‰Ûªt forget about the Joker Lane either.

"It was definitely a game changer last year, especially when it came to deciding when to go through it. This is going to be an exciting and interesting race," Barcia added.

The Monster Energy Cup track will include the unique the split start, joker lane and a high-speed 33 degree bank built into the stands, but Carmichael has intensified a few more items. The 80‰Ûª triple will grow to 100‰Ûª; instead of one high-speed sweeper turn, there will be two; the split start will now direct riders onto the track at a 45 degree angle.

‰ÛÏAfter last year‰Ûªs race, we immediately rolled up our sleeves and began working on the next generation of this track,‰Û
