While it has become beyond comical to see everything from mayonnaise to nail polish marketed as “extreme,” there are some realms in which the youth-magnet buzz word is still appropriate, even a bit understated.

If they aren’t, than its not extreme enough, bro. Check out the name of the upcoming fuel-scented extravaganza to be held at Jerryworld (aka Cowboys Stadium in Arlington): Monster Energy Supercross. It seems that a can or seven of an energy drink can turn a Motocross event into a Supercross. A Pit Party and qualifying rounds begin at 12:30 p.m. and the main event at 7 p.m. For more kickass info, check out ticketmaster.com or call (800) 745-300.
