Supercross Round 17: Las Vegas Facts, figures and animated track map

Posted:



Las Vegas hosted its first Monster Energy Supercross race in 1990, with this season marking the sport‰Ûªs 26th visit to the desert. Las Vegas became the host of the championship finale in 1993, and will bring the season to a close for the 22nd time.

- Sam Boyd Stadium has been the home of the Las Vegas Supercross since its inception. It is one of just three stadiums in series history to host every visit to a host city for over two decades, along with Anaheim‰Ûªs Angel Stadium and The Dome in St. Louis.

- History was made inside Sam Boyd Stadium in 1997 when Doug Henry won the first supercross race aboard a four-stroke, officially kicking off the current era of the sport dominated by these powerful motorcycles.

Las Vegas is the home of the prestigious East/West Shootout in the 250SX Class, which became an annual tradition in 1997 and is reaching its landmark 20th anniversary this season. For the second time it will be a points-paying, dual region Main Event.
