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 on Friday, August 5th at the Fairgrounds Grandstand in Ellsworth, WI.
You will see racers jump seventy foot triples, navigate bermed corners and pound thru the whoops. Local racers are invited to sign up for the races – as young as 4 years old and as old as 50. Pit gate and sign up will open at 3pm, practice will start at 6pm (for Race Entrants Only), and the racing will start at 7pm. 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.
