Competitor Sign Up Online and Information

A Word Of Caution: We know how many of you competitors want to ride this event. If you have just started riding motorcycles, this is not a race for begginers. If you don’t know simple rules of racing such as “picking a line,” and flags, you could endanger yourself and some of the riders that have been racing for years. Getting in the way of someone jumping because you’ve moved into someone else’s line could end up in a disaster. Supercross requires knowledge and safety.
