This weekend’s 14th round of the 2022 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship on Saturday will take place at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Atlanta, Georgia. This is the only mid-season East/West Showdown round of 2022, but you’ll want to set the DVR earlier than usual, as the Atlanta Supercross will be a day race on Saturday. Also note that the race airs on NBC this weekend. This round also features a 250SX Futures round as well.
What you need to know the most: heat races begin just after 3 p.m. Eastern/12 p.m. Pacific.
[Update: Saturday , April 16 at 8:45 EDT]
It indeed started raining hard at 5:30 a.m. Saturday morning, and it's not scheduled to stop until around noon. So the schedule has been adjusted accordingly, with each group having just one practice.
Qualifying will begin at 11 a.m. for Supercross Futures, then 250SX hits the track at 11:15.
The "night show" in this day race still begins at 2:30 p.m., as scheduled.
