The Vroom

The American Medical Association and the American Motorcyclist Association don’t have a lot in common. Where the differing AMAs do agree, though, is on taking part in activities that get your heart racing. Medics might recommend a jog in the park, but for those who love revving engines and daring riders, the Monster Energy AMA Supercross at Chase Field will fill their prescription for adrenaline.

Rough riders will take on a challenging, dirt-laden obstacle course of speedy straightaways, tight turns, and ridiculous ramps in transformed D-Back country. Up-and-comers and veterans alike will rip through 17 rounds of racing with past champs Ryan Dungey, James Stewart and Chad Reed looking to return to trophy-hoisting glory.
