Supercross races are almost exclusively held within professional football and baseball stadiums.

Supercross is derived from Motocross. While Supercross and Motocross are quite similar in a lot of ways, there are also significant differences.

Just as an example, Supercross races will be heavily televised and advertised motorsports events that are held at major cities.

US Open Supercross racing tracks are also a lot more technical. They will not be as fast as the motocross tracks but their difficulty level is much higher. This further adds to injury risk factors.

The sport of Supercross is definitely tailor-made for a TV spectator. This is the target market of US Open Supercross racing, and the television coverage is widespread. The name of "Supercross' had its beginnings as an event name at the first Motocross race which was successfully organized inside a United States stadium.

This was in 1972. Michael Goodwin, a racing promoter staged a Motocross event at California's Los Angeles Coliseum. Marty Tripes, who was only 16 years old at the time, won the event.

Many top riders of that time were featured at this initial contest. It was a hugely commercial success and initiated many imitators. ‘Supercross' was subsequently coined in identifying the similar cycling events at a Motocross stadium.

Today, motorcycle associations sanction and govern Supercross races. The prestigious American Motorcyclist Association is also the oldest motorcycle racing organization within the USA.

Supercross has grown on a consistent basis since the 1970's, but its popularity really started taking off at the start of the new millennium. Today, US Open Supercross racing is second only to NASCAR racing as the most popular type of motorsport.
