AURORA, Ill. – Feld Motor Sports announced today that the Monster Energy AMA Supercross event scheduled for Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Calif., has been moved to Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.
The event, scheduled for Jan. 19, was moved due due to the improvements that the Los Angeles Dodgers intend to make to Dodger Stadium during the offseason
In addition, the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam event, which was scheduled for Feb. 16, 2013 at Dodger Stadium, has been cancelled.
“Our expectation is to be underway with enhancements to Dodger Stadium in preparation for the 2013 baseball season during the time these events are scheduled,” said Bob Wolfe, executive vice president of the Dodgers. “In order to avoid any possible impact on the Jan. 19 Monster Energy Supercross race and the Feb. 16 Monster Jam event, we, along with Feld Motor Sports, came to the decision that it would be best to have the event moved to another location on Jan. 19.”
“We are working diligently to make the change from Dodger Stadium to Angel Stadium for the Jan. 19 Monster Energy Supercross race seamless for the teams, sponsors, and most importantly the fans,” said Ken Hudgens, chief operating officer, Feld Motor Sports. “The collective effort between the Monster Energy Supercross staff, Dodger Stadium staff, and Angel Stadium staff to make this venue change has been very positive.”
Refunds to the two Dodger Stadium motorsports events can be obtained at the point of purchase. Tickets for the Jan. 19 Monster Energy Supercross race at Angel Stadium of Anaheim will go on-sale Friday, Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. PST.
