PALMETTO, Fla. — Feld Entertainment has released the 17-race schedule for the 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross season.

The traditional season opener at Angel Stadium of Anaheim, the first of two races to be held at the home of the California Angels, will be Jan. 4. Angel Stadium is the only venue to host two races, and will also be home to the third race of the season on Jan. 18.

Two of the biggest changes in the schedule involve the second and final events on the calendar.

After opening in California, the series will stampede into the Midwest for the second race of the year Jan. 11 at The Dome At America’s Center in St. Louis before heading back to California for round three.

After many years of concluding the season at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, the series will now wrap up May 2 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City. Sam Boyd Stadium will host the penultimate round of the series on April 25.

“Our goal is the continued growth of the sport and rotating markets every couple of years, expanding Supercross Futures events and moving the finale to a new location helps keep the series fresh and exciting for the fans, as well as for the race teams and athletes,” said Todd Jendro, Vice President of Operations – Motorsports, Feld Entertainment. “Utah has become synonymous with elite, world class sporting events and we thought hosting the finale in Salt Lake City would be a fitting choice.”

Gillette Stadium outside of Boston returns to the schedule on April 18, and the series will not race at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey this year.

Other highlights of the schedule include the annual Bike Week event at Daytona Int’l Speedway on March 7, visits to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Feb. 29 and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on March 14.

“The 2020 schedule gives fans across the country an opportunity to witness one of the greatest shows in motorsports,” said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. “The AMA is proud to work with championship series promoter Feld Entertainment, Inc. and the FIM to ensure the sport continues to achieve the highest standards for fairness and competition while thrilling, exciting and inspiring fans of all ages.”

Cooper Webb is the reigning Monster Energy Supercross champion.
