The 2023 U.S. racing schedule has been announced as promoters of Supercross (Feld) and Motocross (MX Sports) have joined forces. Their individual series will always retain their legacy, mostly familiar schedules and individual championships. New is the birth of the Super Motocross World Championship which will be a three round elimination series at the end of the National Outdoor Championships.
The Super Motocross World Championship will combine points from the Supercross and Pro Motocross championships and qualify the top riders for the playoffs. Riders who win a Supercross Main Event or an Outdoor Overall will automatically qualify for the Super Motocross World Championship. The three-round playoffs will offer single race points in the first round, double points in the second round, and triple points in the third round. The rider with the most points at the end will receive purse money, $1 million for the 450 and $500,000 for the 250. While the first and second rounds have yet to be announced, the final will take place in Los Angeles, California at the LA Coliseum. Another big announcement is the TV package which will see all 31 races broadcast via Peacock.
The finalized program and the press conference can be viewed below. You can also learn more about the Super Motocross World Championship here.
