Just one week after the opening round of the 2019 season at Angels Stadium of Anaheim, the Supercross Futures series is set to kick off in Glendale Arizona. Following the successful standalone events that took place in 2018, Supercross Futures will now serve as the official platform for racers to advance from the amateur ranks into Monster Energy Supercross. This year, a total of eight races will take place and will include a championship. As always, the track will be modified to accommodate multiple classes without sacrificing the experience of racing a full-size Supercross track in a stadium.
The 2019 Glendale Supercross Futures will take place the Sunday following the 2019 Glendale Supercross on January, 13. State Farm Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals, will host the event. As shown in the photo above, registration will take place on Saturday from 11AM-5PM. Entry into the stadium opens at 8AM.
For parking, spectators will be directed to Lot E2, while competitors will be able to park in Lot E3 beginning on the morning of the event at 5AM. Attendees are encouraged to follow posted signage and the direction of officials onsite. Overnight camping is not permitted at the stadium, but recommendations on camping and hotels can be found here.
In order to enter to race at a Supercross Futures event, individuals must be an AMA member. For pre-registration, you must be an AMA member prior to signing up, but for those registering on-site, there will be annual AMA passes sold for $49.
The cost of entry to race is $105 per class, and does not include family, friends, or mechanics. Spectators must pay for a separate ticket, and riders are allowed one mechanic, who can purchase their mechanics wrist band for $30 at the registration tent. A complete overview of entry information can be found here.
