how-to guide for the ultimate supercross experience
April 29, 2009 | It's been four long years since we've
heard the familiar radio advertisements for the greatest
motorcycle show on earth in Utah. This was finally the
year they came back.
April 25 was the day the AMA Supercross would return
to Utah for its last race before the championship was
to be awarded the next week. You need to be preparing
yourself for loud, edge of your seat entertainment!
This trip starts out with locating the perfect seat
weeks before the event. Here is some advice on ticket
selection, you don't want to be high and you don't want
to be low. With that said you ask, where do I want to
sit? The middle is the key for all areas of the arena,
the middle of the sides and the middle from top to bottom.
This will also put you in the middle of the price rance,
and open up a great viewing point to see the entire
track while still being able to identify each rider
Moving on to the day of the race! On the ticket it
will say the preliminaries start at 12:30 p.m. and the
main event starts at 7 p.m. During that time they are
always going to have access to the pits and that is
something you don't want to miss out on. I recommend
coming early to the race to be able to have time to
walk all around the bikes in the pits and see what it
takes to put this race together.
During the day they will always have riders on the
track and open seats down low. Take a break to go in
and watch them from the bottom row, like I said this
isn't where you want to sit for the entire race however
it is definitely worth seeing the riders up close for
Its now time for the race, the moment you have been
waiting for. Kickoff starts with an introduction from
usually the top 15 riders in the point's race for the
championship. This is fun to watch and gives you a quick
bio on the riders that you will be watching compete
for the glory.
Now the main event, the top riders are going to be
circling 20 laps to determine the winner. This means
no bathroom breaks!! These are the top riders in the
league and always offer a good close battle to the finish.
With that all said make sure you attend every local
and national AMA Supercross event you can, follow them
on there site AMA Supercross.
