Monster Energy Supercross_042016

The debut of Monster Energy Supercross at Gillette Stadium is highlighted by the second of back-to-back live telecasts on FOX Broadcast Channel. Coverage kicks off with the pre-race show at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Monster Energy Supercross is making its anticipated return to New England for the first time since 1990. It is the first of consecutive races in the northeast.

Foxborough hosted a Monster Energy Supercoss race for three seasons between 1983 and 1990. The races were held what was originally known as Schaefer Stadium, later became known as Sullivan Stadium and was most well known as Foxboro Stadium until its demolition in 2002.

Gillette Stadium opened in 2002 and is home to the four-time NFL Champion New England Patriots and the MLS’ New England Revolution.
