The Monster Energy Supercross season will begin on January 7, 2023 at its familiar Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California and end at Rice Ackles Stadium in Salt Lake City on May 13.

In 2022, Eli Tomac and Chase Sexton headline one of the most exciting points battles the series has seen in years. Tomac came out on top, but with a narrow margin of just seven points. This year’s Supercross season points are more important than ever as they will allow riders to compete in a three-race championship series called the SuperMotocross Championship in October 2023.

The five Monster Jam national tours each start on the weekend of January 6th. Stadium Series Red kicks off in Oakland, CA on January 7, Stadium Series Blue in San Diego with a two-day show Jan 7-8, Arena Championship Series East in Nashville, TN Jan 7-8, Arena Championship Series Central in Greenville, South Carolina, January 7-8 and Arena Championship Series West in Salt Lake City, January 6-8.

Tom Mints won the 2022 Stadium Series Red Championship over Adam Anderson. His younger brother Ryan Anderson defeated Tyler Manninga for the Stadium Series Red, which will be renamed Blue in 2023.

Michael “Buddy” Kofoid’s breakout season continued into mid-November when he won two races at the 2022 Hangtown 100 weekend at Placerville Speedway (California) and placed third in the first three-day start. Saturday night’s win was worth $20,000 for 100 players, plus another $12,000 for first place in the standings.

Last year’s winner of this race, Justin Grant, also received a career-high $20,000 check in 2021, making the race one of USAC’s highest-grossing races. Kofoid finished second in 2021, leading in 66 laps.

Kofoid started the 2022 weekend on a high note, finishing third on the first night and taking home checkers from the second night. It was his first win since taking his 10th win in 2022 in the 30-lap James Dean Classic at Gas City (Indiana) Speedway in September.

After winning at Gas City, Kofoid would go on to podium in four of the next five races, which helped fuel his battle for the points and kept him hopeful throughout the fall schedule.

It’s one of the biggest midget wins I’ve ever gotten, and of course, $32,000 is pretty damn cool.” Kofoid said in an episode of the series. “It was a long race and it was intense. It’s hard to lead so many laps and know where you need to be and whether you need to move. When the track is so smooth, it kind of brings everyone together.”

Kofoid lost the lead twice during the marathon as he and Cannon McIntosh argued over position from laps 49 to 55. Kofoid took over the lead permanently on lap 56 and led a total of 95 times during the competition.

With this 21st win, Kofoid surpassed AJ Foyt on the all-time winners list and tied Ken Schrader, among others, for 30th place.

Kofoid’s 12th win of the season made this the most successful season for a rider since Rich Fogler won 16 in 1988. Kofoid is only the eighth driver to win 12 or more in a season in the series’ 67-year history. The record is held by Mel Kenyon with 17 wins in 1967.

McIntosh was Kofoyd’s biggest contender for most of the race before he cushion-jumped on lap 70 and fell to sixth. He will lose one more position before the end of the race.

Chance Krum moved up from 21st at the start of the race to second. Last year’s winner Grant finished last on the podium, Outlaw visiting Carson Macedo finished fourth, and 2022 Chili Bowl winner Tanner Thorson rounded out the top five.

“When you get stuck in traffic, it’s not just one car,” Kofoid said. “Then you get to the next car, and there are five of them on top of each other.

“When I was sliding over them, they chased me back and tried to overtake the guys in front of them. Because of this, it was a little hard to walk back and forth with them. I didn’t feel very good in traffic the last two nights, but I think we were good enough to win.

“You just have to maintain your speed and not let their speed get in the way of your work. It did get a little tricky a couple of times and I didn’t know where to be but decided to stick with it and lash out at their mistakes and try to put as many cars between myself and whoever was second. ”

Kofoyd’s win in the Hangtown 100 is part of an incredible season for the 20-year-old. In 13 World of Outlaws races this season, he took his first win at Huset’s High Bank Nationals Premier Series Night 2 in June. In August, he won the BC39 and outpaced NASCAR stars Kyle Larson and Che Briscoe. Also in August, Kofoid took home the first trophy in Larson and Brad Sweet’s new High Limt Sprint series at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Indiana.
