San Diego Supercross Race Will Have Military Theme
The AMA Supercross race set to take place at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium on February 8 will have special meaning to many, as it will take on a military theme to pay tribute to America’s members of the armed forces. The event will support Operation Homefront, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides assistance to service members and their families with a focus on wounded veterans who served on or after 9/11, by making a monetary donation to the organization. Active and non-active members of the military will receive a $5 discount on $35 tickets by phone or online at Ticketmaster.com by using the code: OPHOME.
The San Diego race is one of the highest attended stops on the 17-race schedule, and will showcase military-themed activities while riders and teams will be outfitted with military schemes on their gear and bikes. The San Diego area is home to several military installations, which makes this stop of Monster Energy Supercross a perfect fit to honor to the men and women that have served the country.
