Round eight of the Monster Energy supercross is upon us this weekend at the Camping world stadium, a first for supercross history with having multiple rounds hosted in Orlando.

Looking back at the history of Orlando supercross, we saw a replica track built to commemorate Ricky Carmichael’s final supercross race last saturday, with the same track layout being used this weekend with a few tweaks. Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb took back his winning crown in the 450SX main at round seven, which means he has the opportunity to go back to back with weekend at round eight.

Orlando two will be the 15th race in the Camping World stadium, with your top winners in the city over the years consisting of Jeremy McGrath (1994-1996), Ron Lechien (1983 & 1985), Mike LaRocco (1992 & 1993) and James Bubba Stewart in (2006 & 2007) in the 450SX class. The very first race with the 250SX class saw Larry Brooks take his first win in 1985 aboard his Honda, with saturday nights racing will be the thirteenth gate drop for the 250’s in Orlando.


Supercross director of operations Daniel Blair explained the decision to stick with the same track layout. “Immediately following Orlando one we did full maintenance to the track and recovered it in plastic to preserve what we had.” He said. “Three full days are required to change the track over safely to the original concept for Orlando two, and unfortunately the weather throughout this week did not cooperate and the base was saturated to a point where we did not want to bring equipment onto it.”

“The best course of action to provide the best race track for saturday’s racing is to keep the same track configuration with new obstacles.” said Blair.
