How to Get Into the Pits at AMA Supercross. Supercross is a fast-growing, high-energy spectator sport where a motocross track is built inside of professional football and baseball stadiums. The Supercross season typically runs from early January until early May with stops all around the country. This sport provides unparalleled access to professional athletes by offering fans the chance to visit the pits throughout the afternoon prior to the races each night. Getting a pit pass is not as difficult as one may initially think.
Buy your tickets. You can not get a pit pass without a ticket. You can get tickets at any Ticketmaster location or at the box office of the venue.
Ask about discounts. When you are purchasing your tickets, special discounts are sometimes offered for pit passes, which generally cost $10 per pass. You may be able to purchase your ticket and your pit pass at the same time.
Get there early. The Supercross program starts at 7:30 p.m., but the pits open at 12:30 p.m. Get there early to beat the crowd to the pits and get more autographs of your favorite professional motocross stars. Also, you won't have to wait in as long of a line to buy pit passes if you haven't purchased them yet.
Go to practice. Once you have purchased pit passes, you will also have access to practice throughout the afternoon. Watching the pros practice is a great way to learn about the sport and get a better idea of what to expect once the racing starts that evening.
Bring pens and markers. The teams provide materials for you to get autographed, like posters and hats. However, you may want to bring pens or markers so you can get your autographs in less time.
