EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ, APR. 22, 2015
The penultimate race of the 2015 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season will air live on Fox on Saturday, April 25, at 3 p.m. ET/ noon PT, marking the first time the Feld Motor Sports-promoted and -produced race from MetLife Stadium will air live on the Fox broadcast network.
“A lot of racing series have explored opportunities to present their events in and around the highly coveted New York City market without much success,” said Patrick Crakes, FOX Sports SVP of programming, research and content strategy. “Monster Energy Supercross, on the other hand, rolls into its second year at MetLife Stadium, opening with Media Day at iconic Grand Central Station, before racing Saturday afternoon at the Meadowlands. It provides us a great opportunity to highlight a sports property we are very bullish on to the largest audience possible.”
