#SXonFOX riders will race into the stands at Detroit Supercross
The Monster Energy Supercross championship is going to Detroit, and is also going to the stands:

Such a change could help put things back on track for championship leader Ryan Dungey, who has his longest winless streak of the 2016 season going right now… two races.
The 450SX field has had three different winners in the last three races, while the 250SX East field has also seen three different riders take to the top step of the podium in each of its three events this season.
In the 450SX class, Ryan Dungey has a healthy lead of 34 points over Ken Roczen as the riders arrive at Ford Field, but it is Eli Tomac who could make the headlines again, having won just two rounds ago in Daytona and having taken the win at the 2015 Detroit Supercross. Tomac sits just 5 points back of Jason Anderson for third place in the points – Dungey, Roczen, Anderson and Tomac have been the only four riders to have taken a 450SX win this season.
Meanwhile, Martin Davalos will be looking to rebound after dropping from first to fourth in the 250SX East points last weekend when paperwork issues kept him from entering Canada. As a result, he was unable to race at the Toronto Supercross, and Justin Hill avoided all the carnage to take the win.
LIVE coverage of the Detroit Supercross begins at 7 p.m. ET Saturday on FS2 and streaming live at FOX Sports GO. The races will re-air at 4 p.m. ET Sunday on FS1.
