Worth, 13, raced at last year’s Monster
Energy Cup, finishing 6-6 to close out the evening an impressive 5th overall.

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.
