2021 Daytona Supercross | March Race Date Announced
The dust hasn’t even settled on the 2020 season, a year that was unlike anything we’ve seen before, but things are already in motion for next year and on Monday, Daytona International Speedway announced the intended race date for the 2021 Daytona Supercross. The long-running event is set to take place Saturday, March 6, on the infield of the famed Florida tri-oval and is the first “confirmed” event of the 2021 race calendar.
For the last few weeks, we’ve heard scattered details for the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross Series and that the schedule is slated to be announced in the near future. Exactly where and when the races will take place is unclear, but the races are slated to be run at venues in areas that are more relaxed with their social distancing restrictions (think Florida-Georgia-Texas-Indiana-Missouri) and will allow crowds to be in attendance. All signs point to the series holding multiple events at the same venues in a short amount of time, ala the condensed program run for the Salt Lake City Supercross this past spring.

Unfortunately, there appears to be little to no chance of the 2021 season starting with the typical Anaheim One opener; from what we have heard, the series wouldn’t venture to the West Coast until much later in the season. We’ll have more news on this in the next few days.
