The full 17 round 2021 Monster Energy Supercross schedule was announced today and there are a few changes.
The opening rounds remain the same, with Houston hosting the first three rounds beginning Jan. 16, 19 and 23 before the series moves to Indy for a triple header on Jan. 30, Feb. 2 and 6.
Glendale, which was supposed to host rounds 7-9 on Feb. 20, 23 and 27 is off the schedule as they can no longer host fans due to COVID-19.
Replacing Glendale will be Orlando, Florida, which will host rounds 7 and 8 at Camping World Stadium on Feb. 13 and 20. The series stays in Florida for another week, as Daytona will host round 9 on March 6.
Arlington, Texas, remains the same, as it will host rounds 10-12 on March 13, 16 and 20.
Added to the schedule is Atlanta, which will now host rounds 13-15 on April 10, 17 and 24. The big thing to notice here is: they won’t be held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium; instead Atlanta Motor Speedway will host the three rounds.
The series will end with a double-header in Salt Lake City on April 21 and May 1.
Below is the entire press release:
Feld Entertainment, Inc., today announced the complete schedule for the upcoming 2021 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season. The three rounds originally scheduled for Glendale, Ariz. were removed from the schedule and the series will now split those races between Orlando, Fla., and Salt Lake City.
State Farm Stadium in Glendale is a tremendous partner and the Arizona fans have strongly supported Supercross since 1999 but current attendance restrictions and local health mandates have created a difficult environment in which to plan this far in advance. We hope to return to Glendale in 2022.
After the trio of races in Indianapolis, Ind., the series will venture to Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. for two races on Saturday, February 13 and Saturday, February 20, followed by the annual visit to the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla. on Saturday, March 6.
The Arlington, Texas dates remain the same – Saturday, March 13, Tuesday, March 16 and Saturday, March 20 at AT&T Stadium.
The three previously unannounced events will now take place in Atlanta, Ga. at the Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 10, Tuesday, April 13 and Saturday, April 17. The final two races of the season will take place at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City on Saturday, April 24 and Saturday, May 1.
