AURORA, IL, DEC. 23, 2013
Feld Motor Sports announced today that the Army National Guard has increased its sponsorship with the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, as the exclusive on-site military sponsor of the 2014 season that begins January 4 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California.
“We are very excited to have grown our relationship with the Army National Guard for the upcoming season,” said Dave Muye, senior director of sponsorship and Strategic Alliances for Feld Entertainment. “Their interactive footprint in the pits and color guard presentation to start the show are great additions to the fan experience. We look forward to welcoming many current and future Army National Guard members to Monster Energy Supercross.”
During the 2013 season, the National Guard participated in four races, and 2014 marks its first year as a season-long partner of Monster Energy Supercross. The National Guard will have a large presence during the Pit Parties, and fans are encouraged to visit their interactive display.
The National Guard activation site will provide interactive opportunities for the fans to experience. It will include a pull-up and sit-up contest and the punching-bag challenge. Each fan participating in the National Guard events will have the chance to receive “National Guard” giveaways. There will also be National Guard recruiting representatives on site to answer questions and explain the opportunities available to young men and women interested in serving their country as well as discuss National Guard college scholarships.
For the first time ever, the entire Monster Energy Supercross season will air live on Fox Sports. Fox Sports 1 will air 13 races live and Fox Sports 2 will air four races live, in addition to every race re-airing on Fox Sports 2. The live Monster Energy Supercross programming on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2 also includes live coverage on the authenticated Fox Sports Go app.

About the Army National Guard
The Army National Guard is composed primarily of traditional Guardsmen – citizen soldiers who serve their country, state and community on a part-time basis (usually one weekend each month and two weeks during the summer). The National Guard has a unique dual mission that consists of both state and federal roles. For state missions, the governor, through the state Adjutant General, commands the Guard forces. The governor can call the National Guard into action during local or statewide emergencies, such as storms, fires, earthquakes or civil disturbances. In addition, the President of the United States can activate the National Guard for participation in federal missions.
