Speed! Air! Danger! It’s what makes Arenacross the premier indoor, off-road motorcycle racing championship. What separates Arenacross from traditional motorsports is its intimate close-to-the-action setting, giving fans the on-track feel of horsepower and gravity. Fans will be treated to an exciting new competitive format in 2013 with a pair of high-octane 12-lap Main Events during each night of racing on the highly-technical, air-inducing tracks of Arenacross. As reigning champion Tyler Bowers sets his sights on a third consecutive title, a highly-talented field of challengers, led by veteran Jeff Gibson, will stop at nothing to capture the coveted crown. Fans can also get a one-of-a-kind chance to meet the riders and feel the dirt at the Track Party, full of interactive experiences and the unique chance to see Arenacross up close and personal.
Kansas City will also host the Junior Supercross Challenge (KJSC) that will be making its debut in Arenacross, where the future stars of the sport are showcased in a professional racing environment.
The KJSC will select 15 lucky racers for the chance of a lifetime as they live the life of a factory rider. Aboard identically prepared, factory backed 50SXS bikes these riders will be competing on the very same track as the superstars of Arenacross. The junior racers will also be provided custom racing gear and their very own crew to work on the bikes. During race day, KJSC riders will be able to participate in the rider track walk, opening ceremonies and autograph sessions just like Arenacross competitors and fellow teammates Jeff Gibson and Kelly Smith. KJSC riders will have a full day of activities, from the minute they arrive. These riders will be pitted in a state of the art KJSC race team transporter where they will gear up to begin afternoon practice laps and prepare themselves to compete in a four-lap exhibition race which takes place during the night program.
