Complete Monster Energy Supercross 2021 schedule revealed with new Atlanta stop
The 2021 Monster Energy Supercross schedule will feature 17 races with four three-race stints, two doubleheaders, and one standalone event. Three races scheduled for Glendale, Arizona, will be moved to Orlando, Florida, and Salt Lake City, Utah.
As previously announced, the season will kick off in Houston at NRG Stadium for a three-race stint beginning on Saturday, Jan. 16, followed by Tuesday, Jan. 19 and Saturday, Jan. 23rd.
Current attendance restrictions in Arizona have caused the series to forego plans to race at State Farm Stadium, but the series expects to return there in 2022.
This moves Indianapolis into the second slot on the calendar with races on Jan. 30, Feb. 2 and Feb. 6.
As part of the realignment, Supercross will head for a three-race stand between Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, on Feb. 13 and Feb. 20, followed by the annual March 6 race at Daytona International Speedway. Orlando last played host to a race on March 17, 2007, which was the final race for NBC broadcaster Ricky Carmichael.
The Arlington, Texas, dates remain the same with races on March 13, 16 and 20 at AT&T Stadium.
Three new events will take place at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia, on April 10, 13 and 17. This will mark the first time that the speedway will play host to a Supercross race.
The series will close its season at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City on April 24 and May 1. All 17 rounds will feature standard race formats. Triple Crown formats will be put on hold until the 2022 season.
The 2021 season will feature most of the 250 West and East races run in consecutive events. Both the West and East regional classes will feature nine races.
The West series will be featured in the first seven races of the season at Houston, Indianapolis and the first Orlando show. The East series will take over in the second Orlando race and contend at Daytona, Arlington, and Atlanta before the West series returns in Salt Lake City for the first race of the doubleheader. The finale on May 1 will be the only East/West shootout of the season.
While fans will be allowed, seating capacity will be reduced at each stadium with a Pod Seating structure. More information about each stadium’s safety protocols can be found on their individual websites.
