The 2016 Monster Energy Cup track features the highest start in Supercross history, an all-new track design inspired by 5-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael. The massive downward start allows for top speed as the field has 470 feet of smooth track surface leading into the first turn. Additional features include high-banked, challenging corners, Monster Alley – a fast straightaway that stretches outside the stadium where pro racers reach upwards of 70 miles per hour, plus opportunistic sand rollers, and plenty of sections to thrill the fans with big air.
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, 10-Lap Main Events will take home $1 million, the largest prize in motorcycle racing. This feat has only occurred once in the history of the Monster Energy Cup when Ryan Villopoto grabbed the honor in 2011.
Tickets for the 2016 Monster Energy Cup can be purchased at the Thomas & Mack Center Box Office, UNLVticket outlets, online at www.UNLVtickets.com, www.MonsterEnergyCup.com, 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. Practice and qualifying begins at 12:00 p.m. and the Main Event begins at 6:00 p.m. PT.
