John Murray – Promoter and owner of the Pikes Peak SUPERCROSS competed in his first SUPERCROSS race at Norris-Penrose Events Center June 1, 1987.

The SUPERCROSS is sanctioned and officiated by the SRAC (Sports Riders Association of Colorado) and the AMA (American Motorcylist Association), rules and regulations available on the SRAC.org website.
SUPERCROSS racing has become a worldwide phenomenon. From its humble beginnings in 1972, the sport has enjoyed unprecedented growth, making it the second biggest motor sport in the USA, topped only by NASCAR. The name SUPERCROSS was recognized by Google as one of the most highly searched motorsport key words in the world!
