Gates open at 12:30 p.m. with the Main Event starting at 7:00 p.m.

More than 500 truckloads of local dirt will be brought into Lucas Oil Stadium and sculpted into a dirt battleground, complete with jumps that will send riders soaring 70’ in distance and 30’ in height. Throughout race day, over 150 riders, including supercross greats Ryan Villopoto, James Stewart and Ryan Dungey will be vying for spots in their respective division’s Main Events.
