Due to the increased spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and also the increased restrictions on both domestic and international travels, and per the local and national state governments restricting mass gatherings of 250+ individuals, the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross has been postponed and other races canceled.
As per travel restrictions and mass gatherings due to COVID-19, the following Supercross races have been canceled:
- Indianapolis, IN at Lucas Oil Stadium – march 14th
- Detroit, MI at Ford Field-21st March
- Seattle, WA at Century Link-28th March
- Denver, CO at Mile High, Empower Field-April 14th
- Foxborough, MA at Gillette Stadium-April 18th
It also involves the cancellation of the Sunday Supercross Futures of the Denver and Foxborough.
The COVID-19 reactions continue in Motorcross as different sources claim that it has forced Feld Entertainment to make sudden changes to the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Series round this weekend. There will be no fans that will be permitted at the 2020 Indianapolis supercross grounds.
It was planned that the program of the races will continue as planned with all racing and riding sessions to take place with only a limited number of people into the building but recent notification is that the race has been canceled due to the restrictions of mass gatherings of 250+ people which is the same as the one taken in Washington for the cancellation of Seattle Supercross. Feld Entertainment later confirmed the cancellation of the 2020 Indianapolis supercross of 14th March.
Information on ticket refunds can be located on the ticketing website or the venue. The refunds will be automatically reversed to the credit card of everyone who had purchased a ticket through ticket master. In case you bought your tickets elsewhere you can directly contact the vendors. For those guests who purchased their tickets by phone on the TicketMaster website/Fordfield website, they can directly contact customer support at the Ticketmaster’s customer service website whereas those who purchased their tickets via Ford Box Office to direct their inquiries on ticket information to the Fordfield’s customer support.
Feld Entertainment in its press release stated that they prioritize the health and safety of every individual attending and competing in their live races as well. They also added that during this unprecedented time they value everyone as a fan and they also appreciate the understanding and patience of everybody.
The cancellation of the 2020 round of the Supercross has come on the same day that NASCAR had announced that they will be running their next 2 races without fans attending with Australia canceling its Formula 1season opener.
More than 1500 cases have been confirmed in the US with around 40 deaths. Indiana has recorded 13 confirmed cases although there are no deaths from the coronavirus. The championship will be on hold until further notice and no champions will be crowned although there are still slim chances and slightly a bit of hope for another round of Monster Energy Supercross.
