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 Arenacross and the man left standing atop the podium at the end of the night with the coveted trophy will have earned his prize. The defending champion Babbitt’s Monster Energy/TiLube Kawasaki team and riders Chad Johnson, Tyler Bowers and Gray Davenport lead a highly-talented group of riders hungry to claim the prestigious national AMA Arenacross Series title.
Last season in Dayton, 2008 AMA Arenacross Series champion Chad Johnson captured his second win of the season for Babbitt’s Kawasaki. The win helped the two-time series champion stay within striking distance of his teammate and eventual champion Josh Demuth as the battle for the championship came down to the wire.
The AMA Arenacross Series 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 the a coveted autograph from some of the best riders in the world.
