Fast Facts

Venues

Opened in 1923, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is one of the most recognizable stadiums in the world. The stadium has hosted the Summer Olympic Games twice and currently serves as the home field for USC’s college football team. The Coliseum formerly hosted NFL games and two editions of the Super Bowl. Beginning its two wheel history with “the Super Bowl of Motocross” in 1972, the Coliseum hosted Supercross from 1974 to 1992 and returned for the 1997 and 1998 seasons. After 25 years of waiting, “The City of Angels” once again became home to premier SuperMotocross action.

2023: A Million Reasons To Celebrate

After the infamous wave by incident a week prior in Chicago, Jett Lawrence silenced the doubters with a 1-1 performance and 450SMX championship win in the 2023 finale. Lawrence capped off an impressive start to his 450 career with an SMX title following his perfect season in Motocross. Lawrence fought Suzuki’s Ken Roczen in each moto, but came away with the top spot and a million dollars to boot.

 

While one popular phenom won the 450SMX crown, another young racer brought home the 250 title. Star Racing Yamaha’s Haiden Deegan won the overall with a 5-2 night, winning the title by five points over Jo Shimoda. The first moto was a highly contested race, with Jordon Smith stealing the win as RJ Hampshire, Tom Vialle, Shimoda, Deegan, and Jalek Swoll all battled at the front. Levi Kitchen won the second moto after a great start as Deegan cruised to clinch the title and a cool $500,000.
