Rumours have been running rampant about Amsoil Arenacross in recent weeks and now, just days after the final round, Feld Motorsports have confirmed that the series is going away. What is it going to be replaced with? The Supercross Amateur Racing events will be pushed further and run the title of Supercross Futures.
The Supercross Amateur Racing events, which returned earlier this year, averaged seven hundred entries across four events. There will be eight rounds of this next year and, just as they did this season, they will run on the Sunday after a Monster Energy Supercross event. Amateur athletes will still have to compete in these events in order to acquire Road to Supercross points, which will later allow them to make their Monster Energy Supercross debut.
It was confirmed in the same press release that television stats increased by five percent over last year. The Salt Lake City event, round sixteen of seventeen, was the most watched Monster Energy Supercross round ever.
