DIRT WURX USA, Feld Motor Sports® and Ricky Carmichael finalize Vegas’ Monster Energy Cup track

One last meeting at Sam Boyd Stadium insures that the upcoming 2012 Monster Energy Cup track will be the best one yet according to DIRT WURX’ Rich Winkler

imgMONROE, N.Y. (July 17, 2012) – Flying into Las Vegas from various points on the States’ map, the DIRT WURX USA crew – led by Rich Winkler – met with Feld Motor Sports® to put the final touches on the track design work for the upcoming (Oct. 20th) Monster Energy Cup at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium.

“The planning meeting site visit on the playing field of Sam Boyd Stadium was a culmination of several previous meetings with RC and Feld, going over one last time – in detail – what the track will look like for the October Monster Energy Cup event,” said Winkler. “From the in-stands obstacle to RC’s input and what the remainder of the track will look like, the consensus is everything’s a ‘Go.’”
In addition to Feld and RC, according to Winkler, Eric Eastland of All-Access was on hand to discuss the all-important truss work involved with running dirt bikes some 200-feet up into the stands.

The 2012 Monster Energy Cup features an all-new track design inspired by five-time Supercross Class Champion Ricky Carmichael. The Carmichael-inspired track design will consist of supercross and motocross obstacles unlike any other racetrack design in the world. More than 200’ of the track will be built into the grandstands, and the riders exit the stadium and race through the Monster Energy Fan Zone outside of the stadium and through the pit area before they catapult back into the stadium. The Monster Energy Cup posts a $250,000 purse with the winner walking away with a $100,000 check, and any rider that wins all three Main Events will take home $1 million.
