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, Wis.
You will see racers jump seventy foot triples, navigate bermed corners and pound thru the whoops. 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. and practice will start at 6 p.m. (for race entrants only), and the racing will start at 7 p.m.
A Supercross race includes 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 who 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.
Are you a spectator and not a participant? That’s great, too! Come early to enjoy the first fair food of the season. The Beer Garden will open at 5:30 p.m., and grandstand gates will open at 6 p.m.
Admission is $10 for age 8 and over and $5 for age 7 and under. So come early, get a bite to eat, have a drink and get set for an exciting night of fast paced entertainment.
