AURORA, Ill. — Feld Motor Sports announced it has teamed with longtime Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, sponsor Toyota to introduce the inaugural Toyota Triple Challenge, a three-race points-earning challenge within the 17-race championship.
The winner of the Toyota Triple Challenge will win a new 2014 Toyota Tundra, with a $250,000 bonus on the line for any rider who wins all three races.
The“Toyota Triple Challenge will include the fifth race and third stop in Anaheim, Calif., on Feb. 1, the seventh race of the season and Eastern Regional opener from Arlington, Texas, on Feb. 15, and the anticipated return to the New York area for the 16th race of the season in East Rutherford, N.J., on April 26.
“In an already epic season, the Toyota Triple Challenge will add another exciting points race for $250,000 and a 2014 Toyota Tundra,” said Todd Jendro, vice president of two wheel operations, Feld Motor Sports. “With the parity of this season — three different winners in four races — The Toyota Triple Challenge is an extra incentive for the world’s top racers.”
Every competitor in the 450SX Class is eligible in the Challenge, and points will be awarded towards it during these three events. The rider with the most points at the conclusion of the three designated races will win a 2014 Toyota Tundra and will be recognized as the inaugural victor of the Toyota Triple Challenge.
However, if any rider is able to take the checkered flag inside Angel Stadium, AT&T Stadium, and MetLife Stadium, he will receive $250,000 in addition to the truck.
“The Toyota Triple Crown is sure to turn the focus of the motorcycle world toward these three events,” said Les Unger, Toyota national motorsports manager. “As a long-time Monster Energy Supercross sponsor, we’re thrilled to help debut an exciting new program that’s sure to bring even more attention to the series. The $250,000 reward and a new 2014 Tundra are certain to have all the competitors going flat-out.”
