Come to Wild West Motorsports Park, July 19, for a day packed with motorsport thrills.  Two main events will be happening, the HellsGate Grand Prix and the DownHill DeathBox Derby.

The HellsGate Grand Prix will leave spectators on edge as they watch 500 horsepower 4WD vehicles and UTVs race about a struggling course of daunting rocky obstacles with a 1,500-foot elevation change!

The DownHill DeathBox Derby is a hardcore take on soapbox derby!  Teams will race each other in this intense event down a steep dirt hill that finishes with a teeth-clenching jump.  These gravity-powered vehicles will be judged on style and speed. With plenty of skilled moves and hijinks happening from the high hill at the starting line to the jump at the finish line, it is an event made to be watched in person.

The Wild West Motorsports Park offers a great seating arrangement for 10,000 spectators who will be able to see 75% of the race course. If that isn’t close enough to the action, head to the pits to closely eye the racing monsters.

General admission is $20 with the coupon discount, and ages 10 and under get in free! For more information and ticket purchases go to the events website.
