In anticipation of the inaugural Monster Energy Cup taking place Saturday, October 15, in Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium, Feld Motor Motorsports has released this animated 3D track map. The track was designed by legendary dirt bike racers, Jeremy McGrath and Ricky Carmichael. Together they designed a hybrid track that mixes elements of stadium and outdoor racing equating to one of the longest stadium courses ever made.
 
“Getting the basic layout is the hard part, and I now realize it’s a lot more work to design a track than ride one,” said McGrath. “When you are in charge of designing a racetrack, you get a lot of criticism because it is hard to make all of the riders happy. This is a much bigger track than the riders have ever ridden, and it is going to be exciting to watch. I am looking forward to the seeing the uphill section built into the stands.”
 
“Now that the track is completed, I am even more excited to see the great racing that this track is going to produce,” added Carmichael. “I think the outside section is going to be epic, and it goes without saying that the inside has a design that will also lend itself to some great battles, especially with the track going into the stands.”
