The World’s Top Racers Square off at the
Pre-Race Press Conference to Highlight the Monster Energy Cup
(October 19, 2012) – At tonight’s pre-race press conference for the Monster
Energy Cup, the sport’s top racers, including defending Monster Energy Cup
Champion Ryan Villopoto, Chad Reed, Ryan Dungey, Justin Barcia, Justin Brayton
and Adam Cianciarulo previewed tomorrow night's race at Sam Boyd Stadium. Click
the image below to hear their thoughts on the event.
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. New to this year’s track will be a 200’ banked
sweeping turn that will be built in the stands, two 11 rider starting gates
split by 220’ before they converge at the apex of the 300’ start straight and
the joker lane that riders will have to race through at least once during laps
2-10. After racing through these sections of the track, fans will be treated to
equally exciting racing lanes that are built into the Monster Energy Fan Zone,
which is located outside of 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.
