Supercross & Monster Trucks @ Dodger Stadium! (Part 2)

Monster Jam/Monster Girls at Dodger Stadium.

I mentioned last week that Supercross and Monster trucks are coming to Dodger Stadium next year. {linked here}

Feld Motorsports were nice enough to send me pictures and more info on this big event. Maybe they read my post and noticed that I was concerned about the field?

This is a preview of what the course map will look like on the field at Dodger Stadium -

Feld Motorsports had a press conference last week at Dodger Stadium. Two videos -

Feld Motor Sports Senior Director of Operations Todd Jendro officially announces that Supercross will be coming to Dodger Stadium in January.

Jendro says "Today marks a historic day not only for Monster Energy AMA Supercross, but Dodger Stadium as well. This venue has a historic past and will now welcome 150 of the best riders on the planet. We feel that given the iconic image of Dodger Baseball and Dodger Stadium that it is the perfect fit to host an event of this caliber."

"Never before in the 48-year history of Dodger Stadium has an event of such a unique nature and logistic complexity been held at Chavez Ravine."

"Known for being the home of one of the most prominent Major League Baseball franchises of all time, 550 truckloads of dirt will sit on the Dodger Stadium floor for the first time ever, signifying a new era for the venue."

Dodger Stadium assistant director of turf and grounds, Eric Hansen (in blue), discusses what's going to happen with the field when the Supercross events comes to L.A.

They will cart in 550 truckloads of dirt onto the actual Stadium floor.

“I have all the confidence in the world in the Feld Motor Sports crew,” said Hansen. “All we have to worry about is replacing the actual grass once the dirt is removed and from what I’ve been told, (Feld) is the best in the world at what they do so my anxiety level is extremely low.”
