AURORA, Ill. (July 5, 2012) – Feld Motor Sports®
caught up with Dunlop’s
Senior Manager of Motorcycle Off-Road racing and former supercross icon, Broc
Glover to discuss the Monster Energy Cup.
“The Monster Energy Cup and $1 million up for grabs is just
amazing,” said Glover. “To see somebody win that prize was beyond description
last year. This race is a nice precursor for the teams and the upcoming
supercross season. It is very important for the riders as they’ll need shake
off the cobwebs on the new machines and get back in shape for supercross. I
think we are going to see some good competition this year.”
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.
