26 million pounds of dirt dumped into Empower Field

Empower Field has gone from a football field to a high-powered motorsports track.

DENVER — The beautiful green grass loved by Denver Broncos fans has disappeared at Empower Field at Mile High.

Monster Jam and Monster Energy AMA Supercross are returning to Empower Field after a three-year pandemic hiatus from the stadium.

The Denver football stadium has been transformed with 26 million pounds of dirt for back-to-back motorsport events.

Trucks have dumped 500 loads of dirt onto the stadium floor with hills, jumps, turns and obstacles.

The Monster Jam stadium championship spectacle is slated for Saturday, April 23, followed by Supercross, kicking off Round 16 of the racing championship series on Saturday, April 30.
