Monster Energy Supercross salutes America’s Armed Forces with the return of the Military Appreciation Race and Rider Auction. In honor of our Armed Forces, Mechanix Wear will be donating military-themed pit boards autographed by factory teams and riders to the USO San Diego Rider Auction following the race. USO San Diego is a premier USO Chartered Center providing morale and support services, as well as a home away from home for all members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.
Last year’s Military Appreciation Race received full support throughout the industry with military themed riding gear and bike graphics. In addition to the pledge of support from Feld Motor Sports, the Military Appreciation Race will host a charity auction following the race, featuring the race-worn gear by the riders such as Ryan Dungey, Chad Reed, Eli Tomac and James Stewart. As a result, over $82,000 has been raised in support of San Diego's military community through donations and auctions of race-worn gear.
