If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But what about a small tweak here and there? Feld Motor Sports announced changes to Monster Energy Supercross in 2018, including three events with a Triple Crown (three main events) format, revised points structure, the elimination of semi races, and an additional East/West 250SX race.
Will these changes make a difference? Are more changes coming? The sport is getting more popular to watch, but it’s also hurting from a participation perspective. Teams and sponsors are becoming more flexible to try to find solutions.
Davey Coombs (who is also president of MX Sports Pro Racing, which runs the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship) sits with Jason Weigandt and Jason Thomas to get some perspective on the industry and discuss the new formats.
