Fans of the Speed Channel will remember that on Tuesdays, most of the racing programs on the network were related to motorcycles. In the spirit of two-wheeled Tuesday, the West Palm Beach Motorsports Examiner will make an effort to feature at least some form of motorcycle related content on Tuesday from now on.
The 2014 motorcycle racing season gets underway early in the new year, and the first event on the calendar for Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, takes place on Jan. 4 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. That event, as well as many others throughout the season, will benefit from the sponsorship of the Army National Guard.
"We are very excited to have grown our relationship with the Army National Guard for the up-coming season,“ said Dave Muye, Sr. Director Sponsorship & Strategic Alliances, 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."
The National Guard will have a large presence during the Pit Party and fans are encouraged to visit their interactive display, which will include a pull up, 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.
For two-wheel racing fans who can't wait until next year to get their motorcycle fix, an encore presentation of select 2013 AMA Pro Road Racing events will be aired on CBS Sports Network this Friday, December 27, 2013. The broadcast schedule will consist of six straight hours of AMA Pro Road Racing coverage on Friday beginning at 12:00 noon EST/9:00 a.m. PST.
