BREAKING NEWS! 2021 ATLANTA SUPERCROSS TRIPLE-HEADER DETAILS ANNOUNCED
The 2021 Monster Energy Supercross schedule was released late last year and some of the details weren’t 100-percent clear. The MXA wrecking crew has been talking about the 2021 Atlanta Supercross triple-header ever since we heard that the races would be held outdoors at the Atlanta Motor Speedway and we’ve had our concerns about it. Up until Tuesday, February 2nd, the Supercross website had very limited details about these three races in Atlanta, Georgia. Now, we have official track maps and more information about ticket sales, the fan fest, spectators being able to watch the Qualifying practice sessions and more.
This event will feel a lot like the Daytona Supercross being that it’s held outdoors and on the infield of a full-scale NASCAR track. The three different track designs will feature the same basic design with minor changes made to the layout and with new re-configured jumps and whoops for each race. The starting gate will change positions for the third race and the track will extend onto the asphalt surface for many portions of the track which means that the conditions shouldn’t be as soft as Daytona where the track is primarily kept on the grass which means the riders wheels can create ultra-deep ruts and bumps. With an asphalt base used on portions of the track, the ruts shouldn’t be any deeper than they are for a standard Supercross held inside of a football or baseball stadium.
There will also be Freestyle exhibitions and a Pit Bike race happening during on the two Saturday events to keep the crowd entertained before the racing kicks off. See below for more information and the official track maps for each race:
As you can see, the track spans onto the asphalt for many portions of the course.
FELD Entertainment Press Release: Tickets are officially on sale for the Atlanta rounds of the 2021 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season. Atlanta, Ga., and the Atlanta Motor Speedway will play host to Rounds 13, 14 and 15 of the 17-race series beginning on Saturday, April 10 followed by Tuesday, April 13 and Saturday, April 17.
The Atlanta Motor Speedway joins a small list of venues in Atlanta to host Supercross dating back to 1977 at Fulton County Stadium. When the Atlanta Motor Speedway opened its doors in 1960 it became the seventh superspeedway in the country and now joins just Darlington, Charlotte, and Daytona as one of the original seven still in operation. The April triple-header will be a first for the speedway and a first for the Atlanta market.
