The Monster Energy Supercross Series will return to Daytona Int’l Speedway on March 10.

Feld Motor Sports announced today the 2012 Monster Energy AMA Supercross schedule, featuring the tour’s newest stop on April 14 at Louisiana’s Superdome in New Orleans.

Fresh off the heels of the greatest season ever, the 2012 Monster Energy Supercross schedule is the foundation for next season’s highly touted racing championship. Once again the championship will begin at supercross’ home plate, Angel Stadium, on January 7 and conclude at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on May 5, where the champion will be crowned.

Cross Club members will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase tickets on May 9-10. Following the Cross Club opportunity an Online-only offer will be available on May 11-12. Tickets will be on-sale nationally May 13. Due to the renovations at the Louisiana Superdome, tickets will not be available until July 18. Joining the Cross Club is free.

Monster Energy Supercross’ last stop in New Orleans was in 2009 when Team San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart won the main event en route to his second Supercross class championship.

“The 2012 Monster Energy Supercross schedule is the map to the coveted championship trophy,” said Todd Jendro, senior director of two-wheel operations, Feld Motor Sports. “While 2011 is the greatest season ever, it is a primer for 2012. The returning veterans and the youthful challengers are the perfect blend for a parity-driven championship.”

“The 2011 season once again proved that the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, is a real thriller,” said FIM President Vito Ippolito. “Who would have thought that heading into Las Vegas, the championship would be so close? Supercross remains the excellent showcase for FIM motor sports that it always was and keeps the fans on their toes throughout the entire Championship. It is still the FIM’s wish to take Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship global. Still, we are pleased to see that there are once again 17 events on the 2012 calendar and we can start to count down the days separating us from the first race in Anaheim on January 7, 2012."

"As 2011 proved, the Monster Energy Supercross championship has always been about combining the best racers on the planet and one of the most accessible and fan-friendly stadium-based events you'll see anywhere" said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. "For 2012, we're proud to work with our promotional partner, Feld Motor Sports, to deliver the exciting racing, compelling stories and intense thrills of supercross to fans and new audiences worldwide."
