2017 Monster Energy Cup | Race Highlights

Presented by Factory Effex


One million dollars on the line and the sports best professional and amateur racers. The Monster Energy Cup has become an offseason staple over the last seven years, and during that time span, the one-million-dollar prize has only been awarded once. As always, the race presents unique challenges that make winning all three motos a difficult task. This year, the biggest change was the Joker Lane. Similar to previous years, it could only be taken once after the first lap. However, the 2017 Joker Lane was roughly a six-second advantage. Paired with a raised starting gate and split unique split start, it was hard to predict where anyone would end up. When the dust settled in Las Vegas, one man would be walking away one million dollars richer.
