Top supercross racers compete in Las Vegas showdown

The Rockstar Energy Drink U.S. Open announced today the invited rider list at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena October 9-10, featuring the world’s top supercross racers for the two-night showdown.

After revising the Rockstar Energy Drink U.S. Open race format two years ago to a one-class-one-champion program, the invitations were extended to not only the world’s top AMA Supercross class riders but also to the world’s top AMA Supercross Lites class riders. Sixty-five invitations went out to the sport’s biggest names, including reigning AMA Supercross class champion James Stewart, former two-time AMA Supercross class champion Chad Reed as well as the AMA Supercross Lites class champions Christophe Pourcel and Ryan Dungey.

Tickets for the 2009 Rockstar Energy Drink U.S. Open are available at Ticketmaster locations, Carter Powersports in Las Vegas, the MGM Grand Garden Arena box office, or by phone at (800) 745-3000.
