Round Thirteen of the Monster Energy Supercross Championships takes place this weekend in Atlanta, Georgia. After a two week break from supercross, the riders will be at the sharp end to get back behind the gate.

Track History

The first 450SX Class race held in Atlanta was on March 5, 1977 and Bob Hannah won the race on a Yamaha. The series has only missed Atlanta twice since 1977 (1987 and 1988). Fulton County Stadium hosted 14 450SX Class races from 1977 through 1992 before being demolished.


The largest domed stadium in the world was being built right up the road and would begin hosting Supercross in 1993. The Georgia Dome stood until 2017 hosting 26 450SX Class races before it too was demolished in lieu of Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium entered the Supercross fray with a bang hosting a Triple Crown in its inaugural season
of 2018. The series returned to the Benz in 2019 and 2020 as well. Atlanta will host a different kind of “Triple Crown” this season than previous and in a brand new 450SX Class venue.

Atlanta Motor Speedway is set to host Rounds 13 through 15 becoming the 62nd different venue to host a 450SX Class race and fourth within the Atlanta market, and has been open since 1960 and Dale Earnhardt is the winningest racer with nine NASCAR victories there.
