The following is an industry press release...

AURORA, Ill. (December 19, 2012) – Feld Motor Sports® announced today that the 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, will enjoy the largest television package in the sport’s history. Nearly 100 hours of Monster Energy Supercross will air domestically across SPEED, CBS and FUEL TV. In addition, over 150 countries around the globe will broadcast Monster Energy Supercross, including a groundbreaking live programming schedule in Australia, the Middle East, and Africa on ESPN International.

A Monster Energy Supercross milestone, SPEED will air live coverage from a record 11 races, including the first and third stops from Angel Stadium (Anaheim, Calif.) Chase Field (Phoenix), Qualcomm Stadium (San Diego), Cowboys Stadium (Arlington, Texas), the Georgia Dome (Atlanta), Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis), Rogers Centre (Toronto), Reliant Stadium (Houston), Rice-Eccles Stadium (Salt Lake City) and Sam Boyd Stadium (Las Vegas). SPEED will also air a one-hour Monster Energy Supercross preview show before the gate drops on the season opener from Anaheim (January 5) and a 30 minute preview show from the season finale in Las Vegas (May 4).

Monster Energy Supercross will receive nine hours of next-day coverage on CBS, comprised of five 450SX Class races, including the second stop from Angel Stadium (Anaheim, Calif.), O.Co Coliseum (Oakland, Calif.), Edward Jones Dome (St. Louis), the Metrodome (Minneapolis), and CenturyLink Field (Seattle), as well as four one-hour season specials.  The season specials include a preview show, a midseason show, a year-end show and a special one-hour show on two-time defending Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ryan Villopoto.

Rounding out the 2013 Monster Energy Supercross domestic television package is the re-airing of every SPEED broadcast on FUEL TV.

“We are on the brink of one of the sport’s most anticipated seasons ever, and it’s only fitting to showcase it domestically on SPEED, CBS and FUEL TV,” said Ken Hudgens, COO, Feld Motor Sports. “This television package brings consistent coverage to the loyal fans of Monster Energy Supercross.
