Monster Energy Cup History
The Monster Energy drink brand is well
known for hosting and promoting extreme sports events, and it's hard to get much more extreme than the Monster Energy Cup.
On October 15th, 2011, the first Monster Energy Cup was held at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the energy seems
to have been growing every year since. Ricky Carmichael is the Monster Energy five-time Supercross champ and was commissioned
by event organizers to custom design a track like no other. A side from the unique element of the split start, the course
also features the Joker Lane and a 33-degree bank built into the stands that literally ramps up the velocity and the excitement
of each race. All in all, this is an exciting event that has already had its fair share of incredible moments and has a very
bright future ahead of it, providing all of the incentive you need to head out and see it for yourself.
