CBS Sports to air Preview Show of 2009 Monster Energy® Supercross Season
AURORA, Ill. (December 26, 2009) -- Feld Motor Sports announced today that CBS Sports will broadcast a one-hour preview show in HD of the 2009 Monster Energy® AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, Saturday, December 27 at 2:00 p.m. EST.
Looking ahead at the highly anticipated 2009 Monster Energy® Supercross championship, the preview show sets up the various storylines. CBS Sports gives viewers an in-depth analysis of the Chad Reed/James Stewart rivalry and weighs in on AMA Supercross Lites star Ryan Villopoto's move to the premier AMA Supercross class.
With a new season comes new changes, and two of the biggest changes are Stewart and Reed's new teams. The show will give an overview of the 2009 Monster Energy® Supercross team line-up.
"This is a great way to preview the 2009 Monster Energy® Supercross championship," said Dave Prater, director of supercross, Feld Motor Sports. "With the highly publicized team changes of Reed and Stewart, some of the other major team changes were overshadowed. The one-hour preview show will bring fans up to speed on who's racing where."
The stars of tomorrow will be illuminated with a close look at the AMA Supercross Lites class' top riders. Defending regional champions Jason Lawrence (West) and Trey Canard (East) will defend their championships against a host of hungry races looking to make their mark, including Ryan Dungey, winner of three main event and the Dave Coombs Sr. East/West Shootout and Austin Stroupe, who won a main event last year as a rookie.
CBS Sports will broadcast nine hours of Monster Energy® Supercross in 2008, which will include seven races, the preview show and a recap show Sunday, May 3 at Noon EST.
