The World’s Best Arenacross Racers Return this February

ArenacrossHigh intensity, bar-to-bar dirt-bike racing at its finest returns to Reno with the 2011 AMA Arenacross Series during its annual visit to the Livestock & Events Center Friday, February 18 and Saturday, February 19. Tickets for the longest-running round on the series that has affectionately become known as “ArenOcross” are on sale now at and the Livestock & Events Center box office beginning Monday, February 14.

Hundreds of the best Arenacross riders from around the globe will compete for their chance to be one of just 32 riders to make a pair of 16-rider main events in the AMA Arenacross and AMA Arenacross Lites classes. The national series travels throughout the country to several of the most renowned arenas in the United States, bringing in 150 truckloads of dirt to sculpt a man-made dirt battleground. Technical obstacles, close competition and impressive airtime combine to create one of the most unique spectacles in the sporting world.

Anything can and does happen in Arenacrossand the man left standing atop the podium at the end of the night with the coveted trophy will have earned his prize. Defending champion Josh Demuth leads a highly talented group of riders hungry to defeat him in his bid to claim a fourth AMA Arenacross Series title.

Last season at the Biggest Little City in the World, the AMA Arenacross Series’ two winningest riders of the 2010 season, Demuth and his Babbitt’s Monster Energy/TiLube Kawasaki and teammate Tyler Bowers, traded wins over two nights. The pair’s dominance at the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center further establish the duo as the pair to beat for the coveted title. 

The AMA ArenacrossSeries is fun for the whole family! The always popular track walk and post-race autograph session gives an opportunity for fans of all ages to get up close and personal with the stars of Arenacross and get a coveted autograph from some of the best riders in the world.

 Don’t miss the chance to check out a truly memorable experience!

Kid’s seats are just $7! Adult admission is just $20!  Tickets are available at the Livestock & Events Center box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, and by phone at (800) 745-3000.

    There’s a chain of stores in the Reno area that’s giving away 5 tickets & track passes to the Reno Arenacross event on Saturday. You have to do the usual promo stuff – like their Facebook page and post a note. Details are here:!/JacksonsFoodStores
