The Dodger Stadium Supercross has been taken off the 2013 Monster Energy Supercross Series schedule with the race being moved to Angel Stadium of Anaheim on January 19.
According to Feld Motor Sports, the promoter of the series, the Dodgers are set to begin improvements at Dodger Stadium during the off-season, forcing the series to head south for a third round in Anaheim.
Feld has cancelled its Monster Jam event scheduled for February 16 at Dodger Stadium.
“Our expectation is to be underway with enhancements to Dodger Stadium in preparation for the 2013 baseball season during the time these events are scheduled,” said Bob Wolfe, Executive Vice President of the Dodgers. “In order to avoid any possible impact on the January 19 Monster Energy Supercross race and the February 16 Monster Jam event, we, along with Feld Motor Sports, came to the decision that it would be best to have the event moved to another location on January 19.”
The process has already begun to make the change to Angel Stadium.
“We are working diligently to make the change from Dodger Stadium to Angel Stadium for the January 19 Monster Energy Supercross race seamless for the teams, sponsors, and most importantly the fans,” said Ken Hudgens, Chief Operating Office, Feld Motor Sports. “The collective effort between the Monster Energy Supercross staff, Dodger Stadium staff, and Angel Stadium staff to make this venue change has been very positive.”
Refunds to the two Dodger Stadium motorsports events can be obtained at the point of purchase. Tickets for the January 19 Monster Energy Supercross race at Angel Stadium of Anaheim will go on-sale Friday, December 7 at 10 a.m. PST.
Angel Stadium will host two other rounds of the series – the opener on January 5 and round five on February 2.
