Built into this year's Rockstar Energy Drink U.S. Open format will be the second year of the three part Trifecta bonus program that will pay additional money to the fastest qualifier for each night's event, a bonus to each night's holeshot winner and a bonus for any rider that can complete the Trifecta challenge by being the fastest qualifier, getting the holeshot and winning the main event.
In addition to the $100,000 winner’s purse, any rider that wins the Trifecta will earn an additional $50,000 bonus each night, and any rider that can "Double Down" and hit the Trifecta both nights will walk away with $250,000 for the weekend.
"Last year we implemented the Trifecta bonus program, and it was exciting to watch James Stewart lay it on the line for the huge payday en route to his first Rockstar Energy Drink U.S. Open win, ” said Todd Jendro, senior director of supercross, Live Nation. “With his superpole, holeshot and main event win, Stewart made it halfway to the $250,000 last year, and I know he is looking to take home all of the money this year.”
