The 2015 Monster Energy Supercross Series is closer to coming to a close, now that round sixteen of the year has taken place at MetLife Stadium. Located within sight of one of the biggest cities in the world, the New Jersey venue has become a destination race for fans of the sport and this year’s primetime slot on FOX Sports. This required a pretty big change to the daily format of the race but everyone seemed to embrace the change, which sounds like it could be usual thing at future events. With only one race left on the Supercross tour and all championships decided, there seems to be little excitement heading into the finale in Las Vegas, but that could make for a wild night of new winners.
THINGS WE HEARD AT THE TRACK
– Justin Bogle is one of the many riders in a contract year and currently nothing is set in stone for the current GEICO Honda rider. From the sound of things, the team more than likely will shelve the 450 program when Eli Tomac departs (which isn’t that strange, seeing how Team Honda HRC is pretty much handling the technical part of Tomac’s program). Where Bogle winds up next year, his first in the 450 class, is anyone’s guess.
– Marvin Musquin and Red Bull KTM signed an extension that will keep the newly crowned 250 East Coast SX champion on the team through 2017 as he jumps to the 450 ranks.
– The 2016 Supercross schedule should be announced this weekend in Las Vegas, but here’s cities we know to be on the list: 2 Anaheim stops, 2 San Diego stops, 1 Anaheim, Boston, Toronto, axed Houston, Dallas now a West Coast round, Las Vegas still the finale.
