There will be an AMA Supercross event “Monster Energy Cup” on October 13th in Las Vegas. If you are a fan of motocross this will surely be a very entertaining event and will be filled to the brim with exciting action. The event is an exhibition so it should be geared towards fans and should have a ton of really fun moments. The race should be a good mix of talent and grit; the race is anyone’s to win and there should be a lot of good racing.
The Monster Energy Cup is part of Las Vegas BikeFest. Motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the world come for four days of entertainment, contests, shopping, and everything motorcycle. If you are a fan of motorcycles or motorcross then you should certainly go to Vegas for that weekend as there will be plenty of events that will entertain all ages. There will be a lot of interesting events and other attractions to check out during the festival so make sure that you stay the whole time.
Be on the lookout for Marvin Musquin who has won two races in a row and should be in good form to win the race. He is not currently a fan favorite but that will certainly not stop him from coming in the top few racers. Blake Baggett should also be a threat in the competition as the Vegas track is an easy ride that favors good starts which is one of Baggett’s biggest strengths.
Zach Martin and Jeremy Martin also should put up good fights in the race, look for Martin to have a strong showing in Vegas. Shane McElrath won in Salt Lake and should have a great chance to win again in Vegas which will go a long way in cementing his 2019 plans. Jason Anderson is still looking for the first win of his career and he will have a great shot at winning October 13th.
Musquin and Eli Tomac have a bit of a feud going between them. During the race at Gillette Stadium, Musquin made an aggressive pass on Tomac that sent Tomac off of the track and got him out of the race.
“It was out of nowhere and a cheap shot,” Tomac said during the post-race news conference.
Mesquin said this about the crash “Obviously the outcome was pretty brutal. I’m sorry for what happened. But with the crash, it could have been bad for me, too.”
So, it looks like the feud might have been settled but I do not think that Tomac will be giving any love to Mequin on the track. Hopefully, there are no more dirty moves or scuffles during the race that would spoil the race.
Las Vegas is a great place to go and watch a motocross race and the AMA Supercross will be no exception. There is plenty of other things to go out and do in Las Vegas so if you are going to make the trip for the race make sure that you stay the weekend and really enjoy yourself. Make sure you bring your gambling money!
