AMSOIL Arenacross Returns to AMALIE® Arena February 20 and 21, 2016
Feld Motor Sports® brings AMSOIL Arenacross, featuring Ricky Carmichael’s Road to Supercross, back to Tampa’s AMALIE® Arena on February 20 and 21, 2016. The event, which will consist of a 14-round season to crown a champion, will qualify riders for the championship, culminating with the season finale in Las Vegas for the second time ever on Friday, May 6.
Saturday, February 20, 2016 hosts professional class racing starting at 7:00 PM and
Sunday, February 21, 2016 hosts amateur class racing starting at 12:00 PM.
AMSOIL Arenacross enjoyed groundbreaking achievements both on the track and in the stands during the 2015 campaign. The battle for the title was closer than ever before, with the season-ending Race to the Championship bringing the fight all the way down to the final race of the season. The championship was ultimately decided by one of the most dramatic and exciting moments in AMSOIL Arenacross history as rivals Jacob Hayes and Kyle Regal came together on the opening lap of the season’s last Main Event, with Regal emerging for his first career title. That memorable finale in Las Vegas proved to be the fitting conclusion to a season that saw some of the highest live event attendance ever recorded for AMSOIL Arenacross.
As reigning AMSOIL Arenacross Champion, Regal will defend his title against a highly talented field of veteran riders and rising stars led by Hayes, last season’s championship runner-up who will return to the perennial contending Team Babbitt’s Monster Energy/AMSOIL Kawasaki team. The emotions of last season’s wild finish still linger for this duo and both head to 2016 sharing unfinished business with one another.
