There’s dirt in the Prescott Valley Event Center – 1,200 yards of it, all for the EnduroCross event this weekend.
The first round of a six-round series, there are several tons of large and small rocks too, said Lance Bryson, director of special events for EnduroCross.
“We’re bringing in a lot of material to create that ‘wow’ factor so when the fans come in on Saturday night, they look down and go ‘holy cow, something’s getting ready to happen here,” Bryson said. “It’s getting pretty gnarly. We’ve got the best off-road racers in the world that will be here Saturday night.”
The Prescott Valley Event Center, 3201 N. Main St., is the perfect venue with everything they need to make it a great event, he said.
Tickets for the Saturday, Aug. 25 event are $25 for adults, $15 for kids ages 2 to 12 and $22 or seniors 60 and over and active military and can be purchased online at www.prescottvalleyeventcenter.com. There’s not a bad seat in the house, Bryson said, noting wherever anyone is sitting they can see the whole track.
It starts at 7:30 p.m and is set to feature the rivalry between EnduroCross Champion and World Champion Cody Webb and Colton Haaker, former national and world champion, Bryson said.
“They’re going to go head-to-head. It’s going to be good stuff,” he said. “Their rivalry gets the crowd excited. when the crowd get into it, they get more excited and … everybody’s feeding off each other.”
Scottsdale-based racer Cooper Abbott is also set to race in the event and it’s going to be the first time in the history of EnduroCross that electric bikes will be racing, featuring Ty Tremaine who is based out of Reno and rides an Alta bike, Bryson said.
