Arenacross is a much newer sport than Supercross. Arenacross is also referred to as AX.

AMA Arenacross consists essentially of a Supercross style course which is even further downsized and put into a smaller venue such as basketball and ice hockey stadiums.

Arenacross is definitely growing in popularity, as smaller cities which do not offer large baseball and football stadiums can then host the Arenacross races. The first open Arenacross was held in 2006 and was extremely well attended.

The AMA is utilizing the AMA Toyota Arenacross series to help riders in transitioning from the amateur racing towards Supercross. A lot of Supercross privateers enjoy racing Arenacross.

Some top AMA Arenacross motorbike racers include:

  • Darcy Lange (Kawasaki)
  • Tyler Bowers (Honda)
  • Brock Sellards (Honda)
  • John Dowd (Suzuki)
  • Kevin Johnson (Yamaha)
  • Josh Demuth (Yamaha)
  • What is the difference between Motocross, Supercross and Arenacross?

    Motocross is actually an off road motorcycle race that is run on a natural terrain. It has very few manmade obstacles. Supercross however, unlike Motocross, can be watched by a spectator from wherever he is sitting.

    Arenacross, just like Supercross, will compete on a surface that is man made, but the tracks as well as the stadiums will be much smaller. Riders who compete in the AMA Arenacross events as well as the Monster Energy Supercross will come from all over the world.
