Ellenton, Fla., (December 1, 2020) – Tickets are officially on sale for the first six rounds of the 2021 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season. The series is set to kick off in Houston, Texas at NRG Stadium on Saturday, January 16 for the first of three rounds (Tuesday, January 19, Saturday, January 23), prior to travelling to Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday, January 30 for the first of three races (Tuesday, February 2, Saturday, February 6), set to take place in Indianapolis, Indiana.
When the gate drops on January 16 in Houston, it will be the first time in the sport’s 47-year history where the season opener will take place in the state of Texas. It will also be the first time in 25 years since the series has opened outside of California and began with the racing of the Eastern Regional 250SX Class for the first six rounds. Houston carries the special distinction of hosting the second Supercross race of the inaugural season in 1974 and has been a consistent tour stop ever since. The series first raced at the Astrodome and then moved to Reliant Stadium in 2003, now named NRG Stadium.

Indianapolis also has a rich history in Supercross that dates to 1992 at the RCA Dome where the King – Jeremy McGrath, found great success throughout his storied career. Lucas Oil Stadium became home in 2009 and has hosted Supercross races every year since. Indianapolis has always been a rider favorite and the soft and rutty dirt always produces challenging and technical racing. Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin took home the victory in 2018 and 2019 and will look to make it three-in-a-row as he returns to racing after being sidelined with an injury for the entirety of the 2020 season.
