2013 Monster Energy Cup TV Schedule

The third annual Monster Energy Cup will get underway Saturday, Oct. 19, from Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. And this year’s event will be broadcasts live on the recently launched Fox Sports 2, with coverage beginning at 9 p.m. EDT.

Fans of the race will enjoy 3.5 hours of live coverage, and the event will be re-broadcasts on Fox Sports 1 at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20. Hosting the event will be Ralph Sheheen, Jeff Emig and Erin Bates.

At the 2013 Monster Energy Cup, riders will once again compete for a $1 million purse on a track designed by five-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael.

The $1 million purse is earned if a rider can win all three main events. This happened in the inaugural Monster Energy Cup in 2011 when Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto completed the feat.

Last year’s winner was Muscle Milk Honda’s Justin Barcia, who had a 2-1-2 finish. Though he didn’t capture the $1 million, he took the Monster Energy Cup and $100,000.

Speaking of the live coverage, Barcia says: “It’s great to hear that FOX Sports 2 is providing the fans at home 3.5 hours of live coverage from the Monster Energy Cup as I defend my title against the sport’s heavyweights in Las Vegas.”

Ken Hudgens (COO, Feld Motor Sports) says: “Heading into its third year, the Monster Energy Cup has quickly grown into one of the most anticipated races of the year, and showcasing it live on FOX Sports 2 will deliver this world class race to a new, multi-sport audience.”
