There will be a lot of horsepower competing right next to the legendary ship as racers face off on the AMA’s most innovative track at Long Beach to date. Racers will face a supermoto first; a tunnel just before the transition from asphalt to dirt. Other obstacles include a 40 foot sky-shot bridge and a whole series of urban cross jumps right into the finish.

The action for the Supermoto Championship Final begins Friday November 4th with practice sessions that are open to the public.
