SX TRADITION IN SLC: The series returned to Salt Lake City as the penultimate 450SX Class round from 2009-2013 and

2017-2018. Salt Lake City hosted the last seven rounds of the

2020 Covid-19 altered season in one of the greatest sporting accomplishments during the height of the pandemic. Rice-Eccles Stadium cashed that improbable summer in for two rounds finishing off 2021, and a single finale round in the next three seasons (2022-2024)

END OF SEASON TEST: Rice-Eccles Stadium has hosted the most penultimate rounds in 450SX Class history with 12. In

2020-2021 Salt Lake City doubled as the penultimate and finale rounds. 2024 is the fifth time Salt Lake City will be the finale.

Only two venues have hosted more 450SX Class finales than Rice-Eccles Stadium (Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum & Sam

Boyd Stadium, Las Vegas).

BREAKING IT DOWN: Rice-Eccles Stadium History: 22 previous

450SX Class races, 2024 SLC will be #23. Only 36% (8/22) of rounds has the winner of SLC won the title, including Chase Sexton last season in his official title clinching round.
