Our SUPERCROSS Halftime show features the Trinity Motors “Dash for Cash.” The fastest pro riders of the night will battle head to head in 1 lap eliminator races. The final winner gets $500 cash! We will be celebrating 26 years of Colorado Supercross with some special guest at opening ceremonies….Don’t Miss It!!!
The SUPERCROSS Track building begins on Wednesday June 7th with six dump trucks working all day to bring in 175 loads of dirt. The bigger obstacles and track start to take shape Thursday. Friday final touches on the jumps, then the whoop section and corners are built then 200 hay bales are placed outlining the course and finally a start and finish gate are installed and the track is complete and ready for Saturday morning SUPERCROSS practice runs. The media is welcome to join us each day during the course of construction to document for viewers and readers how an empty arena transforms into a Pro SUPERCROSS track.
