Dirt will be flying and riders will be soaring at the Boundary County Fairgrounds as 9B Arenacross returns for a second go. The race is put on by a team of dedicated local riders who are committed to encouraging more people to get involved in dirt bike racing while at the same time providing an event that’s exciting, safe and family friendly.
The dirt track with all its tight turns, bumps and jumps will be ready to test an expected 80 to 100 riders on Saturday, June 29. Races begin at 6pm and the pros are competing for a purse of $9,000. Arenacross will feature some of the best regional riders but also give people of varying skill level a chance to put their own stamp on the course. There will be roughly 20 classes of racing throughout the night ranging from pros on 450cc bikes to youth, women, mini-bikes and beginners. There is even a ‘Run What Ya Brung’ class where pretty much anything with two wheels is allowed on the course—bmx bikes, scooters, mopeds or even Harleys. This is a ‘no jump’ event so competitors will roll over each obstacle for safety.
If you would like to participate, registration is open at 9BArenacross.com. Prices vary by class and there is a $10 discount if you want to race in multiple events.
For fans, gates open at 5pm. Tickets are $15 for ages 13 and older, $10 for ages 4 to 12. Pit passes are available for $10. You can also see many of the bikes that will be racing ahead of time during the Moto Show which runs from 9am to 5pm at the fairgrounds. Many other cool rides, customs and vintage motorcycles will be on display as well. Concessions will be available and, please note, this is an alcohol-free event.
