Following a five-year hiatus, the KJSC will showcase the talent of boys and girls at select Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, races in 2013. The KJSC not only gives boys and girls the opportunity to compete on the same track as their heroes, it promotes motorcycling as a family activity.

Anaheim Race 2 – February 2, 2013
Arlington – February 16, 2013
Atlanta – February 23, 2013
Indianapolis – March 16, 2013

During race day, KJSC riders will race aboard identically prepared KTM 50 SXS motorcycles and will participate in practice laps at 3:00pm and 5:00pm with a three lap exhibition race taking place during the night program. The young KJSC participants will also be able to participate in the rider track walk and be acknowledged during opening ceremonies.
“We are excited to have the KTM Junior Supercross Challenge (KJSC) back as a part of the 2013 Monster Energy Supercross season,” Todd Jendro, vice president of two wheel operations, Feld Motor Sports. “The program provides an exciting and entertaining element for our supercross audience, but more importantly, the KJSC provides a great opportunity for the youth of the sport to showcase their talent and gives us a glimpse into the next generation of supercross superstars. The KJSC program has been a springboard for notable factory standouts such as Ryan Dungey, Mike Alessi and Eli Tomac to name a few. We are proud to work with KTM on continuing to promote this positive representation of our sport.”
