AUS-X Open fans will have the chance to become a millionaire with the addition of the all-new ‘AUS-X Million’ to this year’s Sydney spectacular set for 11-12 November inside Qudos Bank Arena.

An exciting incentive for race fans in 2017, the AUS-X Million gives any two-day ticket holders the chance to win $1,000,000 by correctly guessing the top 12 SX1 main event finishers on both Saturday and Sunday night.

Australian freestyle motocross icon, stuntman and 2017 AUS-X Open competitor Robbie Maddison expressed his excitement following the addition of the AUS-X Million to this year’s third annual running of the world class event.

“This is nuts! Anyone who purchases tickets to both nights of the the AUS-X Open could walk away a millionaire!” said Maddison. “If there was any greater incentive for fans new and old to come check out all the AUS-X Open action, I’d like to hear it!”

Not only will two-day ticket holders have the chance to walk away a millionaire, but individual day ticket holders too will have their shot at winning $500,000 if they choose the top 12 finishing order correctly on their selected night of racing action.
