Off-Road Rage

Supercross racers don’t get their blood racing by screaming down city streets on crotch-rockets or watching the open road fold out before them while riding hogs. They do, however, get a nitro-boost of adrenaline by tackling temporary terrain not found in nature on the backs of precision-crafted off-roading motorcycles. Need-for-speed voyeurs will, too, but from the safe and comfortable confines of their white-knuckle-gripped seats, when the Monster Energy AMA Supercross lands at Chase Field. Engines start revving with qualifying races at 12:30pm, then open full throttle for the main event at 7.
