Following the successful launch of the SuperMotocross Video Pass which streamed in over 135 different countries in 2023, Feld Motor Sports Inc., and MX Sports Pro Racing Inc. are excited to announce the addition of a Spanish language broadcast to all subscribers in 2024. Play-by-play commentary will be driven by broadcast industry veteran Edgar Lopez and former Supercross/Motocross racer Tommy “TJ” Rios will take the reigns as Analyst. The SuperMotocross Video Pass (www.supermotocross.tv) is now available in every country outside the United States, live and on-demand, in both English and Spanish, giving viewers the choice on how to follow all the racing action. This latest innovation makes the SuperMotocross World Championship series one of the most accessible live-viewing motorsports across the globe.
The Spanish language broadcast team will deliver the same authentic and expert commentary that our international audience has come to expect from the SuperMotocross Video Pass. Edgar Lopez brings an extensive background in sports broadcasting to the table in both English and Spanish touching major sports from the MLB, NBA, and NFL to professional boxing and other forms of auto racing. He spent four years in Texas calling the Spanish language broadcast for the Dallas Mavericks, Texas Rangers, and Dallas Cowboys. Prior to his stint in Texas, Lopez spent over a decade in Chicago as an announcer for the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bulls. Currently, Lopez acts as Bilingual broadcast talent for multiple NBC Sports properties including NFL Sunday Night Football, The Olympics, Golf Channel, and now the SuperMotocross World Championship. As a former racer, TJ Rios brings a wealth of knowledge to the Analyst role alongside Lopez. Following the conclusion of his professional racing career, Rios completed his college education at Florida International University where he recently graduated with a degree in International Business.
“I remember when I was called to do NFL Sunday Night Football in 2005 and right now this is my 20th season doing Sunday Night Football on NBC. When this opportunity with SuperMotocross presented itself, I don’t know why, but I got the same feeling as I did when Sunday Night Football came along. We’re going to look back in 20 years and this is going to be big, I feel that strongly about this property and doing this in Spanish.” Said Play-by-Play announcer Edgar Lopez.

This opportunity is a privilege and huge opportunity for the sport, I’m excited to be a part of it.” Said TJ Rios, former racer turned Analyst on this new journey in his career.
