Racing with a purpose: Supercross announces themed nights for 2024
The Monster Energy Supercross series will continue to race with a purpose in 2024 after announcing three themed nights in 2024.
Last year the Pro Motocross series celebrated its 50th anniversary and this year it is Supercross’ turn, providing an extra theme night to the program. Supercross held their first race in 1974 at the Los Angeles Coliseum with 16-year-old Marty Tripes taking the victory. In September, Jett Lawrence clinched the 2023 SuperMotocross title by sweeping the motos at the age of 20.
Round 3 will be dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Supercross with teams switching to throwback designs and livery.
Military Appreciation Night will be held at in Arlington, Texas during Round 7 of the 17-race calendar. Riders and teams are encouraged to sport graphics and livery inspired by the men and women who previously and currently serve(d) time in one of the military branches.
Round 14 at Nissan Stadium will be devoted to St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital as it has been since 2019. This will be a home race for the longtime charity partner of Supercross as they are located in Memphis, Tennessee. The children’s hospital has been a partner with Supercross for the past eight years. Last year, they surpassed $1 million in funds raised with combined initiatives.
This round will be themed with the Love Moto Stop Cancer program. Bikes in this race will be adorned with artwork from children at the hospital. After the race, many of the items are auctioned off. In 2023, St Jude raised $130,000 with this initiative. The yearlong text-to-donate campaign supporting St. Jude launches in Round 2 in San Francisco.
