Personally, racing has never really been my thing. Whether it’s horses, cars, or motorcycles, the appeal of something running around in a loop for an hour or more has never quite made sense to me. I do however love the pod-racing scene from Star Wars episode 1, but that’s a story for another day.

Although I’m not a fan of races myself, I know tons of people who get genuine thrills from watching them. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s the prospect of a serious accident at any moment, or maybe it’s the rush of rooting for the underdog as they’re on the verge of passing the reigning champion.

Whatever the reason is, races are without a doubt one of the most popular types of sporting events around. If you’re the type of person that enjoys them you might want to check out Monster Energy AMA Supercross at U.S. Bank Stadium on April 14th.  It starts at 6:30 pm and you can get your tickets now for a little as $15 a piece.
