The Monster Energy Supercross Triple Crown is an exciting new racing format that was implemented in 2018. Consisting of 3 MAIN EVENTS fans and racers alike get to experience three gate drops and holeshots!
-- The top 18 fastest riders qualify directly into the evenings' main events
-- Four additional riders advance into the main events via an LCQ (the LCQs for Triple Crown races take place before the night's opening ceremonies)
-- 250SX = 3 Main Events at 10 minutes + 1 lap
-- 450SX = 3 Main Events at 12 minutes + 1 lap
-- The Triple Crown format uses an Olympic-Style Scoring System so 1st place = 1 point; 2nd place = 2 points, etc.
-- The rider with the LOWEST SCORE (ex. 1+1+1=3 if a rider wins all three Main Events) gets 1st place, and a full 26 regular championship points. 2nd overall pays 23 pts., 3rd overall pays 21 pts., etc.
Triple Crown Championship:
The Triple Crown is also a "championship within a championship," as a rider's results from the three Triple Crown races in Anaheim 2, Detroit and Houston will be tallied to declare an official 2019 Monster Energy Supercross Triple Crown Champion!
