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. on Friday, July 26, at the Fairgrounds Grandstand in Ellsworth.
Attendees will see racers jump 70-foot triples, navigate bermed corners and pound through 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 3 p.m., practice will start at 6 p.m. for race entrants only and the racing will start at 7 p.m.
A supercross race contains 23 different classes, five 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.
