This coming weekend (April 22, 2023), Monster Energy Supercross is heading to East Rutherford, NJ (MetLife Stadium) for Round 14 of the Supercross season. (Here you can find the Supercross TV schedule for more details).
I’m personally pumped for this weekend for a few reasons.
The first reason is that it’s the first East-West showdown of the season, which means we’ll finally get to see Jett Lawrence and Hunter Lawrence battle it out. (Who’s the faster Lawrence brother?).
It’s also an SX Futures round. I enjoy watching the young guns battle it out – especially now that Ryder Difrancesco is back to battle it out with Haiden Deegan‘s teammate Daxton Bennick.
The second reason is that I’ll be at this race in person! I usually go to at least two rounds per year: Daytona and either MetLife or Gilette (they alternate every year). Last year was Gilette, so this year is MetLife, and I’ll be there.
The final reason, and most important of all, is that Dirt Bike Vault (this website) is sponsoring a Supercross team!
I like Eli Tomac, Ken Roczen, and the other factory guys as much as the next Supercross fan, but privateers are the backbone of our sport and they need support. Take some time and watch the video below…
So, when I saw the RRCZ KTM team was looking for sponsors earlier this year, I was excited to jump on board and help the team chase the East Coast rounds this Supercross season – specifically at the MetLife round.
This weekend, Cheyenne Harmon and Hayden Hefner will be aboard the blue RRCZ Dirt Bike Vault KTMs. They’ll be sporting a similar graphics kit to the one below, except Belray will be replaced with our logo/branding.
How SICK do those bikes look? I love them, and can’t wait to see them this weekend with our branding.
The fans were loving the team last weekend in Atlanta (how awesome is this video?):
If you’re at MetLife this weekend, be sure to stop by the team, check out the bikes, and show support for the backbone of our sport – privateers!
