Feld Motor Spots announced today that the Monster Energy AMA Supercross race that was originally scheduled to be held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on January 19, 2013, has been moved to Angel Stadium in Anaheim due to improvements that the LA Dodgers plan to make to Dodger Stadium during the offseason. Additionally, the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam event, which was scheduled for February 16, 2013 at Dodger Stadium, has been cancelled.
"Our expectation is to be underway with enhancements to Dodger Stadium in preparation for the 2013 baseball season during the time these events are scheduled," said Bob Wolfe, Executive Vice President of the Dodgers. "In order to avoid any possible impact on the January 19 Monster Energy Supercross race and the February 16 Monster Jam event, we, along with Feld Motor Sports, came to the decision that it would be best to have the event moved to another location on January 19."
"We are working diligently to make the change from Dodger Stadium to Angel Stadium for the Jan 19 Monster Energy Supercross race seamless for the teams, sponsors, and most importantly the fans," said Ken Hudgens, Chief Operating Office, Feld Motor Sports. "The collective effort between the Monster Energy Supercross staff, Dodger Stadium staff, and Angel Stadium staff to make this venue change has been very positive."
Refunds to the two Dodger Stadium motorsports events can be obtained at the point of purchase. Tickets for the January 19 Monster Energy Supercross race at Angel Stadium of Anaheim will go on-sale Friday, December 7 at 10am PST.
