Triple Crown in Supercross
The Triple crown is a very exciting championship that is embedded in the Supercross Championship. The first triple crown was cropped into the Supercross in 2018 and it consists of three races while fans and racers are given ample chance to experience the holeshots. Three races are staged in three locations – Glendale, Las Vegas, and Arlington and the results garnered by riders from the three locations are added together for the winner of the triple crown to emerge.
The triple crown has its own distinct format; here is how the riders qualify for the championship.
Twenty-two riders compete in the triple crown. The 18 fastest riders are selected while additional four riders are selected through the LCQ which is held just before the opening ceremony of the event.
