Feld Entertainment Vice President Nicole Feld stated that "Our goal is continued growth of the sport and with this schedule we believe we can surpass the 1 million mark in live attendance in 2018. Hosting races in more of the country's larger capacity stadiums around the U.S. will allow us to expand the reach of the sport." Will you fill the 1 millionth seat? Be sure to get your tickets for the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross season which will be on sale Tuesday, October 24, 2017.

You can also catch the broadcasted racing coverage on the FOX family of networks.

"The athletes of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, are among the most skilled and talented in the world and this schedule provides a worthy showcase for what certainly will be another season of stellar racing," said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. "As we saw in the recently wrapped up 2017 season, the race for the coveted 2018 AMA Supercross No. 1 plate will begin in Anaheim and most likely extend through the finale in Las Vegas. We are pleased to continue to partner with Feld Entertainment on bringing the most exciting indoor motorsport on the planet to race fans, as well as the AMA amateur racers across America who hope to one day line up for an AMA Supercross Main Event."

"With the retirement of reigning Supercross World Champion Ryan Dungey, we can expect to see a thrilling competition among the many excellent riders vying to become his successor," said FIM President Vito Ippolito. "Eli Tomac, Marvin Musquin, Ken Roczen, Jason Anderson, Davi Millsaps, Blake Baggett, Cole Seeley, Dean Wilson, Chad Reed and Cooper Webb - to name but a few - are among those who will have to stand up to the rigors of a demanding series that will spread over 17 events if they are to emerge on top. As always, Feld Entertainment has set the scene for a new campaign that will take off in Anaheim next January and end in Las Vegas in May. So, who will be the next Champion of Supercross? Only time will tell, but we can be sure that there will be some hugely exciting action along the way."
