One of the most traditional forms of motorcycle competition in the U.S., flat-track racing grew from the age when riders would compete on county fair horse tracks groomed to provide a hard-packed surface.

(Pro & Pro Am classes feature 100% payback.)

An AHRMA Southeast Region trials event will be held in conjunction with the dirt track event.Track gates will open at 8:00AM. Trials sign-up will open at 9:00AM, and competition will start at 10:00AM. Dirt track sign-up starts at 3:00, practice starts at 5:00, and racing starts at 7:00PM. All riders must be AMA members.
