The Popularity of Supercross Motorcycle Racing

When you think about racing, what is the first sport that comes to mind? If you are like most other Americans, it is likely that you would respond with NASCAR. NASCAR is, by far, the most popular racing sport in the United States, but do you know what comes in at a close second? Honestly, there has been some debate over this, but many say that supercross motorcycle racing is highly popular and that popularity is expected to keep on rising.

Are you a supercross motorcycle racing fan? If so, you likely already know what it is about the sport that makes it so popular and draws in fans. However, if you are not a supercross motorcycle racing fan, you may be wondering what is great about the sport. If this is the case, you are definitely not alone. There are thousands, if not millions, of other Americans who are wondering the same thing. To understand the popularity of supercross motorcycle racing, you must first understand the sport itself.

Supercross racing is almost exactly like motocross racing, but it takes place indoors, in most cases. Instead of creating a man-made track outside, a man-made track is created indoors. These events mostly take place in large football stadiums or other similar venues. Since the track is shorter, the races are often shorter, but the excitement is still the same. In fact, some might say that the excitement created by supercross motorcycle racing is even better than the excitement created by motocross racing. One of the reasons being that you can see all of the action, since the supercross tracks are smaller and usually indoors.

Of course being able to see the action is one of the reasons why supercross motorcycle racing is so popular, but the action is a reason all on its own. As previously mentioned, supercross racing tracks are usually man-made. Like motocross tracks, these tracks have a number of turns, jumps, small humps.

Supercross motorcycle racing is popular because the sport is able to reach a number of different people. As previously mentioned, motocross tracks tend to only be located in rural areas. This means that if someone from a large town or city wanted to watch a race, they would have to travel a pretty far distance. It is also important to note, that for the most part, motocross races were not and are still not always broadcasted on television.

This is not the case with supercross motorcycle racing. Not only are a number of supercross motorcycle races shown on television, but they are also part of a traveling circuit. This means that instead of racing at the same venue, supercross racing takes place at a number of different ones, all across the country. Essentially, this means that just about anyone can have access to supercross racing; thus, increasing its popularity.

Of course, many fans are obsessed with their favorite racers. The same can be said when having a favorite football player or basketball player. Fans just love to tune in and see their favorite athletes. Perhaps, the relationship that the fans develop with their favorite supercross rider is the biggest reasons why supercross motorcycle racing has become as popular as it is today.


24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. 27 No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

1 Corinthians 9:24-27


11 I again saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift and the battle is not to the warriors, and neither is bread to the wise nor wealth to the discerning nor favor to men of ability; for time and chance overtake them all.

Ecclesiastes 9:11
