Supercross Round 14 – Seattle: facts, figures and animated track map

Posted:



Monster Energy Supercross will make its anticipated return to the Pacific Northwest for the first time in three seasons.

The championship‰Ûªs history in Seattle dates back 39 years, with a total of 43 races across two different stadiums.

In 1979 Seattle became the third city in supercross history to host doubleheaders, doing so until 1989. As a result, the old Kingdome was home to 33 races over the course of 22 seasons. That‰Ûªs the fourth-most of any stadium in history.

Following a hiatus from ‰Ûª00-‰Ûª04, supercross returned to Seattle in 2005 at its current home of CenturyLink Field, which will host its 11th race this season and the 44th Seattle visit in the sport‰Ûªs history.

CenturyLink Field became infamous in 2011 when a 1-to-2-magnitude earthquake was registered during celebration of a Seattle Seahawks touchdown in the playoffs. The venue also briefly held the Guinness World Record for noise at an outdoor venue.
