Star Valli Yamaha Heading to Las Vegas for the Monster Energy Cup
AURORA, Ill. (May 5, 2012) – Feld Motor Sports® caught up with Star Valli Yamaha Co-Owner Bobby Regan to discuss the second-annual Monster Energy Cup at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium on October 20. Regan announced today that the Star Valli Yamaha team will compete at this year’s Monster Energy Cup.
“The race was amazing last year,” said Regan. “We all enjoyed it and have been primed to race in it this year. The $1 million purse is not hype – a rider actually won it. This is certainly one of the reasons we will be out there. You can count on Star Valli to be in Vegas this October to win $1 million.”
To hear more of Regan’s thoughts on the Monster Energy Cup, watch the video below:
Regan founded the Star Valli Yamaha team in 1999 as a privateer-effort and has effectively built the team into a Yamaha factory-supported powerhouse. In 2003, Star Valli Yamaha was awarded the Supercross Privateer of the Year award for their successes in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship.
The 2012 Monster Energy Cup features an all-new track design inspired by five-time Supercross Class Champion Ricky Carmichael. The Carmichael-inspired track design will consist of supercross and motocross obstacles unlike any other racetrack design in the world. More than 200’ of the track will be built into the grandstands, and the riders exit the stadium and race through the Monster Energy Fan Zone outside of the stadium and through the pit area before they catapult back into the stadium. 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 Main Events will take home $1 million.
