This weekend’s Monster Energy Supercross race at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego will be special for the military in two ways.

First, the SX race will honor the over one million service men and women in the armed forces with the first ever Military Appreciation Race, in support of Operation Homefront, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides assistance to service members and their families with a focus on wounded veterans who served on or after 9/11.

And second, San Diego SX will be broadcast live to the 175 military bases around the world, including U.S. installations, U.S. embassies, and other U.S. consulates, through the American Forces Network (AFN).

Todd Jendro (Vice President of Two Wheel Operations, Feld Motor Sports) says: “It’s an honor to have the dedicated members of the United States Military supporting Monster Energy Supercross.

“This weekend’s military-themed race in San Diego, and every race the remainder of the season, will be brought live to military bases around the world, and on behalf of Feld Motor Sports, we want to say thank you to every active and non-active military member.”

Through the exciting programming on FOX Sports 1, military members and their families can enjoy this one-of-a-line experience through AFN.

Corey Slutsky (Chief of AFN Sports Programming) says: “We are delighted to announce our relationship with Feld Motor Sports and bring exciting action-packed Monster Energy Supercross coverage to the U.S. military service members and their families deployed around the world.

“AFN provides a touch of home to those deployed, and having supercross on our schedule allows us to continue to provide the best sports to our deserving audience.”
