August 6, 2019
While the start of the 2020 Supercross season is still more than

Racer X got the scoop on the concept for the event this year
and has a full article explaining in detail what's taking place.
Essentially there is one main starting area that sits at the back
end of Sam Boyd Stadium (like it typically does) and it will have
starting gates on both the front and backside that will be the hub
for the three tracks: Inside Left, Inside Right, and Outside. The
backside of the starting area will have the racers taking off
outside the stadium and ripping down a short straight section that
sweeps left and brings them back into the stadium.
The front side will have the racers jamming into the arena wide
open down a short start straight that splits into left and right J
hooks. In one race the riders will run in traditional fashion and
go straight down into a left hand turn. Then in another race the
riders will take off down the straight and hook into the right hand
turn and run the track backwards.
