Feld Entertainment announced the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross season today during the press conference for the final round of the 2016 season in Las Vegas, NV. It includes a number of changes that help bring the races to more people around the country.

Most notably, Supercross returns to the Pacific Northwest after a two-year absence, for Round 14 in Seattle at Century Link Field, home to the Seattle Seahawks. Utah is back on the schedule for the first time since 2013 with Round 15 at Rice-Eccles Stadium at the University of Utah where the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2002 Winter Olympics were held. The new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings opens its doors to racing and brings Supercross back to the area for the first time since 2013 as Round 7 gives the Midwest back-to-back rounds with Round 6 a bit more south in Arlington, TX.

Perhaps bad turnout or just bad location or just bad venue got Santa Clara kicked off after just two years and New Englanders will have to travel to New Jersey as Gillette Stadium did not get the nod for a second year but MetLife Stadium looks to be a staple now. California loses two rounds with Santa Clara gone and Anaheim keeping two like this year but San Diego doesn't get a repeat. All the trouble getting across the border which may have cost Martin Davalos a 250SX East Championship did not deter as Toronto remains on-board.

Tickets for the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross Season will go on sale Friday, October 21, 2016.
