Get involved in supercross - Atlanta GA style!
The atlanta supercross Georgia Dome stadium gives a warm welcome to all dirt bike fans. The supercross riders give out spectacular jumps and stunts but be quick if your taking some photos.
The Georgia Dome is the home of the Atlanta Supercross events. It's worth going just to see the arena. It's the world's largest stadium of its kind, cable supported and the construction of the Dome used 8,300 tons of steel, far more than the total weight of steel and iron the French used to make the Eiffel Tower.
Another example of vastness of the dome is the amount of concrete used. If you were to build a sidewalk from the concrete, you could make it from Cincinnati all the way back to Atlanta. There are seven levels to the 8.9-acre stadium and 1.6 million square feet. Its height compares to a 27-story building.
Of course, you won't be going just to see the stadium, the excitement of the race and all the fanfare is what most people look for when they buy tickets. There's plenty of that too! Atlanta bears the reputation as one of the best places for races. In fact, few would debate that the race in 1990 may be the best in Supercross history.
However, every year you'll find peak excitement under the Georgia Dome when you attend the Atlanta Supercross races with all the top names racing to become number one in the nation and king (or queen) of the Atlanta track.
The annual Monster Energy AMA Supercross has thousands of fans cheering each year, as the best of the best make Supercross history and often settle feuds on the racetrack as well as provide fans with breathtaking events to satisfy the hunger for excitement from any Supercross adrenalin junkie.
The sheer size of the dome and the attendance make the excitement even more as fans hearts pound in unison while the racers do whatever it takes to win the title. You'll find Atlanta Supercross racing is by far some of the best in the nation.
Follow the Excitement at Atlanta Supercross.
An exciting race at the Atlanta supercross within the Georgia Dome occurred in February 2011. Chad Reed, Ryan Villopoto and James Stewart were very close in the Monster Energy Supercross race.
Reed's aggressive move on lap 20 tangled Stewart and Reed. Villopoto and Ryan Dungey pulled ahead for first and second, with Reed third and Stewart fourth. Will 2012 be the year the five-year feud is set aside for Stewart and Reed? Either way, it will be exciting to follow.
Riding a Yamaha, Bob Hannah won Atlanta's first Supercross class race, held at Fulton County Stadium, on March 5, 1977. The Georgia Dome acquired Atlanta supercross in 1993, with Damon Bradshaw the first winner of its Supercross race.
With more history under its belt, the Dome has familiar names that have won both classes on its track aside from Bradshaw. Chad Reed, and Ricky Carmichael, as well as Ryan Dungey and James Stewart each hold that honor. The Eastern Regional Supercross Lites class draws riders like Dean Wilson, Justin Barcia and Blake Baggett. Fans with a ticket and a Monster Energy can to recycle at the stadium pit entrance - got into the pits free last year on certain dates.
News of James "Bubba" Stewart state he signed a multi-year contract with Joe Gibbs Racing's MX division (JGRMX), whose Yamaha agreement now goes through 2014. Stewart started his pro career winning the Lites AMA Motocross Championship and moved up to the premier class for the season of 2005.
