Arenacross Replaced By Supercross Futures – It appears that the Amsoil Arenacross Championship is a thing of the past, soon to be replaced by a new way of preparing young racers for the big leagues. Instead of arenacross, Feld Motorsport—the organizers of the Amsoil Arenacross Championship—is going to promote what it calls Supercross Futures, an AMA Amateur National Championship.

Supercross Futures will be organized amateur supercross races, similar to the Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross, to be held on the Sunday following select Monster Energy AMA Supercross rounds. Feld hosted four similar races in 2017 and will conduct eight in 2019. These events will be designed to help young racers prepare themselves for professional AMA Supercross racing while earning their pro license.

Details of Supercross Futures have not yet been announced.

Buried in a release from Feld recapping the 2018 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series read: As Monster Energy Supercross continues to celebrate major milestones, the unveiling of Supercross Futures, an AMA Amateur National Championship, will transition AMSOIL Arenacross into the new Supercross Futures amateur events as we continue to improve the overall quality of Supercross. Building upon the success of 2018’s four Supercross Amateur Racing events, which averaged over 700 entries, the ground-breaking Supercross Futures concept will introduce eight amateur racing events in 2019 and provide greater access to the sport’s largest stage to further hone their skills on full-size Supercross tracks, while also allowing top amateur athletes to earn Road to Supercross points toward their professional AMA Supercross license.

Jacob Hayes will have the distinction of winning the last Amsoil Arenacross Championship. He wrapped up the title last weekend in Las Vegas and will now set his sights on the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series.
