Dirt-bike racing (!) is coming to North Little Rock this weekend as part of the
2011 AMA Arenacross Series. The national tour (which hosts some of the world’s
finest arenacross riders) travels throughout the country and Verizon Arena is
the scene of the 12th round of the championships this Saturday. 150
truckloads of dirt are brought into the arena to sculpt the layout and jumps that
are central to the action. Arenacross is different from motocross because it’s
indoors, allowing spectators to get a good view of the action.The series is returning to Arkansas for
the first time since 2008.
 
Following the high-intensity night of professional
racing Saturday night, the future stars of the sport take over on Sunday for Amateur Day, where around 100
local riders take their chance to compete on a world-class track. To kick
off the weekend’s festivities, fans can meet the stars of the AMA Arenacross Series
during an open house at Kawasaki Sports Center (5922 S. University) tonight. The festivities at
Kawasaki begin at 7  and several rising stars of the sport
will be on hand to spend time with fans. Autographs, prizes and the chance to take
pictures on race bikes highlight the  event. Tickets for Saturday’s show start at $15 for adults and $5 for kids. Advance tickets are available via Verizon Arena or online at ticketmaster.
