This weekend, the best riders around the country will gather in Las Vegas to compete for a $1 million prize during the Monster Energy Cup. Each race has a $250,000, but if a rider can claim victory at all three races, they’ll walk away with a $1 million check.

“I am looking forward to competing in the Monster Energy Cup,” said Ryan Villopoto. “With three main events and a million bucks on the line, we are going to have some great racing.”

If there’s no million dollar winner, the Monster Energy Cup is sure to be a spectacle. The track was specially designed by motocross legend Ricky Carmichael and supercross great Jeremy McGrath and will send riders into the stands at Sam Boyd Stadium and feature elements from all dirt-disciplines.

“This is one of the most diverse race tracks ever assembled,” said Dave Prater of Feld Motor Sports. “The track itself will be developed for an open-class displacement concept. We will create obstacles, corners, and the start straight to help the 250cc machines compete against the 450cc machines, which will in turn level the playing field. ” (You can see an animation of the track here.)
