High-flying, fast paced dirt bike and ATV racing will be featured as the preview show for this summer’s premier event, the Pierce County Fair. The Supercross Racing event will start at 7 p.m. Friday, July 30 at the Fairgrounds Grandstand in Ellsworth. Racers will jump seventy foot triples, navigate bermed corners and pound through the hoops.
Local racers as young as 4-years-old and as old as 50 are invited to sign up for the races. Pit gate and sign up will open at 3 p.m., practice will start at 6 p.m. (for race entrants only), and the racing will start at 7 p.m.
A Supercross Race contains 23 different classes, 5 ATV classes and 18 dirt bike classes. The program consists of a heat race and a main event; and every person that signs up will race twice.
The heat race determines what gate pick the rider gets for the main event and the main event will determine what trophy the rider gets.
There will also be an intermission race for Pit Bikes. For racing information check out www.motokazie.com and click on the SX menu.
Grandstand gates will open at 6 p.m. for spectators. Admission is $10 for 8-year-olds and over and $5 for 7 and under.
