Motor racing fans have a big reason to be excited in June, as the AMA Supercross season returns to complete the remaining rounds of the 2020 calendar. Now that this popular sports series is coming back to our TV screens, we’re going to review your options for watching or streaming every key race live on your TV and mobile device.
AMA Supercross TV Preview
Since 1974 Supercross has been serious business in the USA, where arguably the sport’s best riders have been produced for decades. Whether tackling traditional outdoor tracks or purpose built indoor circuits, the sport attracts thousands of fans eager to watch some high flying race action.
The AMA Supercross Championship takes place every year at locations up and down the United States, in legendary arenas and circuits such as Daytona, Ford Field and the Mercedes Benz Stadium, Atlanta. However, the rescheduled races will take place behind closed doors at only one venue, in Utah, to limit any potential spread of coronavirus (Covid-19).
Races were put on hold in March with seven rounds remaining. Both Eli Tomac and Ken Roczen were leading the race to be crowned American Motorcyclist Association Supercross Champion, but the likes of Cooper Webb and Justin Barcia weren’t too far behind.
The remaining rounds of the AMA Supercross season are set to get underway again and using the information included in this guide you can find out exactly how to watch them live.
