450 Class: Indianapolis Historical Facts

History Lesson: The first 450SX Class race held in Indianapolis was on March 21, 1992 at the RCA Dome and Jeff Stanton won on a Honda. It was Stanton’s second of only three wins in the season and he would win the title by only three points over Damon Bradshaw (331-328).

RCA/Lucas Oil: The Indianapolis Supercross was held in the RCA Dome 17 times from 1992-2008 before it was demolished. Lucas Oil Stadium took over hosting the Indy Supercross in 2009 and has only missed one season since. 2023 will be the 33rd Indy Supercross and 16th at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Milestone City: Indianapolis hosted the 300th round of Supercross in 1997 and the 600th round of Supercross in 2015. 2021 Indy hosted rounds 695-697 of 450SX Class Supercross racing just missing the 700 mark. It also just missed hosting the 600th round of 250SX Class racing this season by one week. Round #800 is projected to be in the 2027 season.

Indy’s Champ: The winner of the Indy Supercross has gone onto win the 450SX title in 20/30 seasons (67%). In the RCA Dome the winner of the Indy SX won the title 14/17 times. Eli Tomac won Indy and the title in 2022.
